With news that the government has passed the doomed legislation on the plebiscite for gay marriage through the lower house, the Prime Minister has set his sights on a plebiscite on the legality of marrying a Golden Gaytime.
Although it’s well-known that it’s hard to have a Gaytime on your own, a little known law in Australia means that it remains one of the few countries that make it illegal for someone to marry a Gaytime.
“When I was younger, other kids would tease me and say ‘well if you like a Gaytime so much, why don’t you marry it?'” one man said. “I love a Gaytime so much – it’s all I’ve ever wanted. But the thing is, as much as I’d want to, I can’t marry a Gaytime. And it’s about time this changed.”
“It’s hard to believe that it’s 2016 and you can’t legally marry a Gaytime in Australia,” he added.
The ability for a person to marry a Golden Gaytime is reported to have widespread support amongst the electorate, with some even going so far as saying it was dangerous to encourage people to have Gaytimes while single as it may make them go blind.
Bob Katter, the Independent member for the Queensland seat of Kennedy, has tentatively supported the plebiscite meanwhile promising to walk “backwards from Bourke” if anyone even contemplated a Gaytime in his electorate.
