Dozens of same-sex couples to already have their marriages annulled.
Nice work, Australia!
sounds like a legislative fuck up based on a technicality rather than evil homophobia tbh. Surely India outlawing gay sex for ~1 billion people is the more worrying development of late?
Australians look and sound very similar to us.

I don't want to annoy anyone.
Lot of thises. I had no idea I was a divisive personality. Kind of weird - no idea what I've done to be so reviled all of a sudden. :(
People unselfconsciously thissing a Hatfood post calling someone else a prick?

have no bearing on decisions like this. No bearing at all
