tangara: Whether Campbell Newman actually supports same-sex marriage is irrelevant. Section 51 (xxi) of the Constitution gives the Federal Parliament exclusive power over marriage. So frankly, I don’t care about the homophobic views of QLD’s politicians, because unless they plan on seceding,…

rippedfuel: He is the leader of the Opposition party in the House of Representatives, the Federal leader of the Liberal Party and quite possibly in with a good chance to become Prime Minister of Australia.

If we look at the education of cisgender folks through this lens instead of with the fear of rejection, then we need not teach transgender 101...
