Labor's candidate for Deakin has one of the best campaign slogans I've seen.

I'm impressed that 91% of donations were under $100, a testament to the fact that the people support Hillary!

I just can't believe you are actually gay. Like, have you ever had a gay experience?
Yes  I have , but you can choose to believe what you want to believe.  People do not have to like things that they know they cannot change.

now the prospect of being straight is truly disgusting to me.
That to me sounds like you have a heterophobia issue. I am not attracted to women, but I'm not disgusted by the "prospect of being straight."  Because it's not a prospect. Nor am I disgusted by straight people.

   Honestly, even if it is against your religion living a life where you hate what you are is going to do no one any favours.

It's less to do with religion and more to do with gay culture and my personal experiences.

There isn't a gay culture tho. There are so many different types of gays out there. And heterophobia is not a thing please...

CCSF, have you ever considered getting on the "gay to straight conversion" speaking circuit?  You might find it to be a lucrative venture, and you seem to have the skillset for it.

I don't believe in conversion being a possibility - but if I could, I would

I just can't believe you are actually gay. Like, have you ever had a gay experience? I assume not because I doubt you'd want to change after. Trust me, when I was like 14 I wished I was straight and then I met some people who were also gay, I kissed boys, I had sex with boys and now the prospect of being straight is truly disgusting to me. Honestly, even if it is against your religion living a life where you hate what you are is going to do no one any favours.

That awkward moment when you call people racist in one breath, and then use a racial slur in the next.

lmao, do you know what racism is?

Great news. Boomers are the worst generation.

Angry

Wait 40 years and see how the upcoming generations see yours. Wink

The boomers are hated for good reason. No other generation in American history left the next generation worse off.

It's a world wide thing, young Australians hate Baby Boomers as well.

Which was odd as Rudd did it to Beazley, Peacock did it to Howard, Keating did it to Hawke, Abbott did it to Turnbull etc.

Labor has a deep fear of changing leaders with the chaos of last govt. The thought is even if Shorten opted to step down it'd still look like he was being pushed out especially because he hasn't been in for long.

The media is actually ing ridiculous atm, like Labor is being attacked like 10x the Govt despite being in opposition. Even Fairfax is going overboard.

Is it true that in order to join the Labor Party one must also join a union?

No, it used to be but not anymore.

It was when I joined - but it's a state by state thing now.

I joined in November 2014, I think since Bill has come in charge they've tried to make it easier to become a member.

24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: South Bend Mayor Peter Buttigieg comes out as gay. on: June 18, 2015, 03:13:58 am


But heterosexuality is assumed as the default and thus has an institutional cultural advantage. LGBT doesn't have that advantage, thus in an imperfect world, it doesn't have genuine equality and thus is noteworthy when it's announced.

I'll surprise you, but I think it is true, that parents assuming their child is heterosexual automatically, is probably something that would be better as a society to happen less. 

But its not homophobia, it's assumption, and maybe it is institutional. But its not hate based.  It's happening less now than it ever has.

But, let's be real, coming out as gay is now a benefit to one's life/career, particularly for athletes.

I don't support the changes because they aren't fair. A person who own their own home and has like 400k in invested will lose access to the pension when their super would pay out at most 20k a year. A for what? Some will get $30 an extra every fortnight and govt will save 2.5billion - it doesn't really seem all that 'fair' to me. People who have worked their entire lives with the assumption that they will have a part pension to support them are having the rug pulled out from under them.

The more I hear this line of reasoning the more alienated I feel.  Was watching Question Time yesterday and was not enjoying the way Labor is handling this at all.  The price of homes being what they are, we'll never be able to afford a house here; we don't entertain it as a serious concept.  If you own a home and have 400k invested, good for you, I hold no animosity towards you, but I also don't think you're really being hard done by.

It's not necessarily hard done by, it's just if you want to be fair as the Greens are claiming, this isn't what needs to be done. There are countless more effective and fairer changes that could have happened if the Greens hadn't given in - the changes probably wouldn't have passed otherwise forcing the Govt to look elsewhere. And people keep claiming that they're clamping down in assets but this affects anyone with a superannuation for couples if they hold about 280k in super they'll see their pension cut which is literally countless people who are not as the Greens claim 'rich'. A super at that size is unable to sustain a couple for their retirement and now they're having what would make them capable of living a decent life cut. It;s ing over the middle class essentially whereas there are countless saving things that could be done to affect those that are actually rich.
