Default Gay Marriage Poll

I'm creating a thread here since I cannot post in Sexuality Issues whilst resident of FI.

Gay marriage support drops

Quote:
Support for same-sex marriage has fallen from 62 per cent to 57 per cent in the past 12 months...

The number of voters backing the postal plebiscite also has fallen five percentage points in a month, from 49 per cent in August to 44 per cent in September...

Support for the No campaign has increased since September 2016 from 32 to 34 per cent, while those opposed to the postal plebiscite since August also increased from 43 to 46 per cent.
What is going on? Is it to do with apathy or are people increasingly genuinely against it?

It's to do with the fact that it doesn't matter what side you are for, the side with the biggest pockets can always sway a certain percentage of the population to their side. Either through advertising, scare campaigns or in the case of the no camp just plain bloodymindedness.


The no side has bigger pockets and way more media traction that the yes side, that's all it is!

But I doubt that the NO voters mostly must be younger generation Australians who are supposedly more intelligent, open-minded, egalitarian and tolerant, right?

Then it's to do with older generation despots. Ageist poo on part of the conservative politicians and despots, not to mention TA and CB is all that is.

I'm pleased to say marriage equality for LGBT community has the support of the wider Australian population, which can also be read as the population telling religion where to shove their religious values!

I go by the username equalism 42 and still feel sexual equality of females on the pay scale has a way to go....but not helped by females playing the poor female victim.

It is with relief I see the Rosmary Batty woman piss off as the media failed to nail the question to her of what she did to push her ex to the point of killing their son....it takes two to fight... and while men might be physical woman are manipulative which should not be confused with innocent!

If you have any concrete, scientific information which supports your view on domestic violence, please post it.

You're kidding? He beat his own son to death with a cricket bat and you are trying to blame the woman for making him do it?

Men are physical and women are manipulative?

Fuck you. That is the only response your bullshit is worthy of.

Change the second one to 'Women are afraid that men will kill their children as well as them'.

It's interesting though, isn't it? You never hear the man being blamed if the woman kills her child or children.

He was a great guy, right up until the time he slaughtered children.

Lockhart shooting: 'Egocentric delusion' drove Geoff Hunt to shoot dead wife and children before killing himself, coroner says
