My apologies if this is ignorant, but who is it that is getting all the Australians worked up? I'm from the states and this is all very confusing to me.
tony abbott, who has
said that he feels ‘threatened’ by queer people (what the fuck does that even mean)
said that schools should teach students less about indigenous culture
said that ‘jesus knew that there was a place for everything and it’s not necessarily everyone’s place to come to australia.’ because apparently it’s jesus’s decision as to who gets to seek asylum in australia
implied that women get abortions because it’s convenient to them as opposed to, you know, not being financially or emotionally capable of supporting a child
‘I think it would be folly to expect that women will ever dominate or even approach equal representation in a large number of areas simply because their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons’ (does this one even require comment really)
thought it was appropriate to pose with political supporters in front of signs calling former pm julia gillard a bitch and other misogynistic slurs
believes that queer people should operate on a don’t ask/don’t tell basis when it comes to their sexualities (this presumably extends to gender identity as well)
has literally zero respect for indigenous australians and has commented that [sometimes] it is their 'place’ to pick up trash in their community
this man is the worst kind of human being imaginable tbh
Yeah, laugh it up. But coming out of the stable is a big deal. We risk being made fun of for liking a girl's TV show, people look at you like you're weird for it, and girls won't date you because of it. The fact that you make fun of our struggle is seriously insensitive, especially with all the more privileged groups you defend. Seriously, educate yourself on our struggles before you start using bronies as a punchline, or maybe you just don't know how it feels to be really oppressed,.
Hey pals! We are so excited to be bringing this back. Starting RIGHT NOW, we’re opening up our Tumblr Ask Box to collect your questions for a brand new edition of “Ask Jimmy.” That’s right, you submit your questions and we film Jimmy answering them for you on camera.
We’ll keep the topic open this time, so you can ask Jimmy a question about whatever your heart desires: the blue couch, his pre-show rituals, the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow…it’s totally up to you.
You have until Monday (4/22) to submit your question and we’ll release the finished video back here later that week!
So excited to hear your questions! Ask here: ASK JIMMY
