Let’s Corner The Australian PM Over Her Opposition To Our Marriages


Hey, Australian readers. Put down your boomerangs and kangaroo-ticklers for a moment, and pay attention to this important announcement from Julia Gillard, your Grand Vizier or whatever you call it.

In two Saturdays (July 21), Gillard will be participating in a Google Hangout, which is basically an online conference call that Google has begged someone to host. She’ll be taking questions from the public, so allow us to make a few suggestions:

They’re accepting questions as of right now (and most of them are, well, not the most erudite) so go stuff the ballot box and let’s get some answers!

      “Put down your boomerangs and kangaroo-ticklers for a moment, and pay attention to this important announcement from Julia Gillard, your Grand Vizier or whatever you call it.”

      Was that supposed to be funny? I love it whenever student journalists try to be so irreverent over nationalities just so they can sound “fearless” and “hard-hitting.” If ever you wonder as to why you don’t get jobs at legitimate news publications that do actual interviews and rarely misplace facts in lieu of their agenda, perhaps you can look back at your “genius” writing.

      I’m not afraid to speak hard-hitting truth to the powerful kangaroo-tickling lobby.

      @Belize: Yes. I do agree. I don’t see why Australians ALWAYS have to be cast as people with goddamn boomerangs and bloody Kangaroos. Only Aboriginals, the people who insist living out in the middle of nowhere and wasting their life away, and Kangaroos don’t live in cities?

      It’s frustrating how Americans think they know about Australia when they know NOTHING.

      @Triple S: It’s frustrating when Australians think they know about Australia and they know nothing too…

      Aboriginal people do not all live out in the desert wasting their lives, just the ones you notice causing a scene or on the news. There are thousands of Aboriginal people living healthy, happy and fulfilled lives both in metropolitan and regional areas.

      No wonder Americans deem us as racist.

      Not one o my mates owns a boomerang and trust me, tickling a ‘roo is not something any of us are stupid enough to do. Stop with the childish satire – it’s not remotely funny.

      Julia Gillard is a useless piece of dingo dung –

      Perhaps if you left out the silly, out of date Crocodile Dundee stereotypes people might actually comment on what the story is about Queerty.

      Oh, so amusing. Thank you for presuming that we all live in the bush when in fact we are one of the most urbanised countries in the world. Furthermore having a Westminster system means that we have a Prime Minister and you’re showing yourself as an ignorant Yank by not knowing that. Furthermore, notwithstanding our recalcitrant poll-dependent PM, gay rights in this country are amongst the best in the world.

      Don’t worry, most of us Australians have managed to develop a sense of humour, and many gay Australians are fiercely proud of our diamanté studded boomerangs.

      Thank you for the article, it would greatly please me if other countries could see how our politicians behave against gay and ethnic groups in “The land of the fair go”.

      One thing about Australia…it’s no New Zealand. “Only Aboriginals, the people who insist living out in the middle of nowhere and wasting their life away” If Aboriginals hadn’t been able to survive in the middle of nowhere the only way we would have known they were here at all is by their bones Australians sold to European Museums. You need to stop pissing on your native people while expecting equality.

      Cynthia Nixon is going to have fun playing her in the mini-series. Ironic.

      Yeah, what’s Julia Gillard’s “deal” anyway? She’s not religious at all, I hear, and not only that, she’s been shacking up with a man for over ten years? Maybe she just doesn’t see much value in marriage?

      Why is Queerty trying to appear as rude as possible to one of the US’ biggest military allies and a fully functioning democracy? She’s the Prime Minister
