Congratulations to Julia Gillard, who just replaced Labor Party colleague Kevin Rudd as Australia’s prime minster, becoming the first lady to hold the post. She has a severe lung infection to thank! And by the way, she’s supports the government’s decision to endorse marriage discrimination!
“[T]he government’s position is very clear that marriage is between a man and a woman,” she told a reporter last year, adding that it’s a position she “certainly” agrees with. One step forward, one step back.
