i’m proud of those grade nine kids who STUCK IT to tony abbott
i can’t believe he dismissed a young woman ‘s question about marriage equality by asking “how ‘bout a bloke’s question… what’s your favourite football team?”
and the kid that responded with “how do you think following in howard’s footsteps by turning back asylum seekers is a good idea?” i’m so proud that boy would have been a child when howard was PM.
and his subsequent answer was just the most ridiculous (and racist) thing ever.
The next boy asked “DO YOU KNOW IT’S A HUMAN RIGHT TO SEEK ASYLUM IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?”
These kids are heckling the CRAP out of him, these fourteen year olds are shouting YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN US A REAL ANSWER STOP AVOIDING QUESTIONS and their teachers are trying to hush them from yelling at the prime minister of australia.
And every single one of them has their phones out, filming every single uncomfortable squirm.
and one beautiful girl raises her voice and says “why is a man minister for women? and why is a man in control of rights for women?” cue deafening screams of support from her classmates. and when he responds “look… urgh… people are either male or female” and she says “NO. there are actually intersex genders”
there are tears in my eyes. we’re under the control of an idiot right now, but at least the future of our nation will be just fine
