So, the plebiscite in Australia next year has been cancelled, leading to same sex marriage only possibly being legal here in 2019, and even then it might not even come legal, like ever. The confusing part? Labor (our main political groups are Labor/Liberal, Liberal won the last election but the way our senate works would take me a long time to explain) Labor got the lbgt crowd to be against the plebiscite, saying that it would cause "Discussion" of the bad kind that would "hurt" young kids who don't know about themselves yet... because you know, the only hate would be towards them, straight people never get any hate, totally... (also, because how dare even civil discussions happen, literately only hate would happen, no one is allowed to be civil)

So anyway, tdlr; Lgbt people just made Australia possibly never legalise same-sex marriage. lol.

Ah I see that's too bad it would've be interesting to see the vote given I'm a political junkie myself. On the bright side you have a congress that actually works. Our congress only works weekends and Tuesday's 😂.

And ikr on the vote, it's funny how people still put up these "polls from the news" and you have like no idea where the poll came from or how they got those numbers. Then the votes end up being totally diferent from what was predicted... I mean happened Twice already in the world XD

SO many people are silent on so many matters until they can be not silent, it's rather interesting.

But yeah, the Government we have here is interesting. Like, even though we have a prime minister, he basically has no power to do anything unless a whole bunch of people agree, including his own staff XD

XD our congress works more than that but it feels like it's never in session due to the political climate here. 

Yes everyone here including myself believed that the polls were right and Donald Trump would lose the election and guess what the polls were wrong and he won h should make people realize that polls are not always correct. 

That's usually how it happens unfortunately I wish more people would speak up on all subjects because it'll be helpful. 

Sounds like a pretty nice government.
