Australia voted against gay marriage. Our Prime Minister Julia Gillard gave her party a conscience vote instead of choosing for equal rights for everyone as the Labour Party she is representing should. Australia is incredibly backwards sometimes. There was a senator, Cory Benardi, who said "legalising same-sex marriage could lead to demands to legalise bestiality and polygamy". It makes me ashamed to be part of this country (even though I love living here). But last week something happened in politics that made me like JUlia Gillard again. Listen to this.. Pretty good, hey!
