With Ireland giving same-sex marriage the go-ahead and with the debate resurfacing in Australia, I wanted to share a thought on what marriage really means:

Marriage is not about love. 
Marriage is not about sex.
Marriage is not about having kids.
Marriage is not about adoption rights.
Marriage is not about god(s) and superstitious tomfoolery.

All of those things go on, regardless of anyone's marrital status.

Marriage is about affording legal protection to the wealth and property of the people getting married and their families.

Marriage serves little to no benefit to those with nothing, as such 'traditionally' only people with wealth got married. Families were combined, dowries were paid, heirs were begat.

The bible, the koran, the torah, and just about every non-judeo-christian culture can serve to show plenty of evidence that the newly-defined "traditional marriage" is an outright lie.

What is NOT a lie is this: Our government affords legal protection to married couples, above and beyond the legal protection granted to unmarried persons (even protecting heterosexual de-facto couples over homosexual ones). 

You can think of marriage in whatever terms you and your religious perversions compel. But having one social minority's preference for discrimination against another social minority codified in law, is wrong. All consenting adults (let's forego the slippery slope B.S.) be they heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transexual, polygamists, other; should have the same legal protection and rights as any other under the law.

Nice... shame about touchwiz...
If you’ve watched Avengers: Age of Ultron, you’ll be aware that there’s a tie-in with Samsung products, with tablets and phones popping up a couple of times throughout (Spoiler!). Samsung has already released a series of Avengers themes for the phones, and thanks to fan made renders, it seems there’s popular support for a full-fledged Iron Man themed phone, and[Read More...]

HAHAHA... lost it, laughing at this guy, when he started talking (@5:20) about how Microsoft took a long time to get into the tablets and phones market, after Apple "made the tablet first" and "made the first ipad, and things like that". Clearly limited tech-knowledge prior to 2007.

Seriously, what is going on with these clowns?
The Liberal National Party will on Friday host a celebration of International Women's Day this Friday at an exclusive Brisbane club that only allows men to be members.

Our prime minister ladies and gentlemen. Is he that poorly informed? Is he an idiot? Is he intentionally lying to us?

All evidence suggests that data retention schemes have less value than a statistical margin of error in changing crime rates and catching terrorists, yet this man wants us to believe it's critical to our safety, that these moronic measures be passed into law.

Also, love that our Prime Minister's you-tube videos have comments disabled. Classy democracy we have here.

The Vatican has since moved to dilute and undo the Pope's comments, but it seems clear from the Pope's own comments that he thinks religions should be held somewhere above free speech, and that violence should be expected, if not justified.

"If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It's normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

"There are so many people who speak badly about religions or other religions, who make fun of them, who make a game out of the religions of others. They are provocateurs. And what happens to them is what would happen to Dr. Gasparri if he says a curse word against my mother. There is a limit.”

I'm with Brian on this, #FuckThePope
