Oh, Hai there.
My name is Fiona, and, yes, I’m rather cynical when it comes to the gay//equal marriage movement. I try to articulate why. but it can be hard to when the world you live in is full of weddings and babies and people wondering why someone might be content with the already happening legal recognition of relationships, or even the, supposed, equality that “WILL” come by saying people can marry.
So, in Australia, defacto relationships actually afford the same protections as state or religious sanctioned marriages.
Yeah, so I shack up with a guy or a girl for 6 months or so, and, legally, it’s seen as a marriage, in that I have property rights. Yep, his/her shit could be mine. Remember 2008 where everything except Howard’s precious “vows” became equal? When your pensions and Centrelink payments were combined, when Health insurers considered you a couple?
Yeah, so everything except that state-sanctioned vow is legal.
yeah, some of you want it…. but having to have your relationship sanctioned by the state…. doesn’t that make you turn in your early grave? I need Abbott to say my love is legit…. *spew* I’ll pass..
And continue to live in “sin” and so on. Have your white wedding, I just hope it brings you the hope you thought it would.
