It’s okay to disagree but when you go out of your way to sabotage another person, that’s just plain shit.

February 25, 2016

It’s okay to disagree but when you go out of your way to sabotage another person, that’s just plain shit. Earlier last week I posted about the same sex gender diverse formal and the attempts to sabotage it by a Christian ( how do they say that and keep a straight face? ) conservative group who are also trying to stop the safe schools initiative in Australia.

This years Christmas message…

December 24, 2015

Another year done and Christmas eve is already here. Im not one for the religious side of Christmas but it does represent a nice bookend for the year and a time to reflect on how the past 12 months have been. This will be the first time I am spending Christmas outside of Australia. I just got off Skype with my family who are all together. Every year we all…

Gaudi’s work can be seen…


New Zealand 1 – Australia 0

April 19, 2013

This week New Zealand became the first country in the Asia-Pacific region to achieve equal marriage. With 13 countries now recognising marriage equality, Australia long thought of as a modern progressive nation is lagging sorely behind. I admit that my own views on equal marriage have changed over time. Originally I didn’t really have an opinion either way. I didn’t think I needed to have my relationships validated by anyone….

The recent death of Margaret Thatcher and the dialogue that has been flying around social media since has caught my attention. For those of you who don’t know who Margaret Thatcher is I suggest you do a quick google search. But this post is not about her it is about us and our reaction to these kinds of events. You don’t have to look far on Facebook to find posts…
