Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is a piece of shit for forcing this postal survey upon Australia, which is something he never promised. It is also a giant waste of money.
There was no plebiscite or postal survey undertaken by the Liberals and their leader John Howard when he criminalised same sex marriage in 2004.
Most importantly, the "debate" this postal survey will create will give licence to myriad forms of hatred and abuse as LGBTIQ people are devalued by their fellow citizens. The calendars may say 2017, but it doesn't feel like it.
Bill Shorten stated it best: "I hold you responsible for every bit of hurtful filth that this debate will unleash."
