|The Labor, Greens and Independents on One Side, the Right-wingers Disappeared on the Other.|
In the middle of proceedings I, as usual, had to have a bitch-fight with one of my “community”. The fuckwit sitting directly behind me started texting right in the middle of a particularly affecting story from a young M.P. telling us of the brutality of the boys towards anything poofy when he was at school. The beep beep beeping went on relentlessly, this fag didn’t give a shit that he was disturbing the rest of us, it could be heard right throughout the chamber, everyone was turning their heads wondering where the annoying noise was coming from. Beep beep beep ba beep beep beep!
As it was right in my ear, I could stand it no longer and had to turn to this skin-head prick who looked like he lived under a sun-lamp, and said, “Can you stop doing that?” My voice rang loud and clear for all in the chamber to hear, and his shrieked reply was just as loud. “No, I can’t! I’ve got to do it!” I wanted to suggest he put his key-pad on silent but figured I’d said enough. The beeps continued but gradually died away, he knew he was an inconsiderate arsehole. All us gays are not cut from the same cloth, we do not come off a conveyor belt in some factory at the back of the gay ghetto, and I don’t get on well with 50% of them.
The motion for the State’s apology was tabled by a conservative gay Lib from the beach-side suburb of Coogee, he was the coolest of the bunch and he made a rousing speech of what it was like to grow up gay, and in 2016 there were now 2 gay MPs and thus THE HOUSE was getting more gay as time wore on. Oh happy days are here again!
We in the gallery cheered, catcalled, even groaned but mostly we were pleased that we’d gotten some consideration. The Libs probably only came to the table because the GLBTQ Mardi Gras parade brings in millions of tourist dollars to the State and THEY love money beyond all else.
The different religious faiths have also been called upon to apologize, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Protestants, for all the torture, maligning and obstacles they’ve thrown in the path of gay freedom, especially the brainwash they still instill in children. But the medieval mindset of religion will be the last bastion of repression and bigotry to fall, even a nuclear war wouldn’t make them cave in, in fact they’ll probably start it.
