Delusional Australian Prime Minister Says Her Relationship Is Proof That Marriage Equality Is Not Needed

Julia Gillard, the unmarried Prime Minister of Australia, was interviewed by the Australian television broadcaster ABC, and said that her relationship with partner Tim Mathieson, was proof that a loving and committed relationship was possible for anyone. She also stated that a marriage certificate wasn’t needed to validate the relationship.

From Gay Star News:

“I think you can have a loving relationship of love and commitment and trust and understanding that doesn't need a marriage certificate. That's my life experience – so I'm speaking from that life experience.”

Well goody for her. Just because she feels that way about her relationship, why does she have to shove it down the throats of LGBT Australians who want to marry? The Prime Minister and her coalition government are promoting homophobia and inequality with this absurd position.

Isn’t life about choices? She has the choice to marry, or not marry. LGBT Aussie’s don’t have access to the same choices, or the same rights, and that's discriminatory.

Julia Gillard
The Labor party leader is the first Australian woman to serve as Prime Minister. She assumed office in June of 2010. The Prime Minister was born in Wales, and her family moved to Australia when she was five years old. She was raised in a Baptist household, and professes that she is an atheist. Gillard’s partner since 2006 is Tim Mathieson.
