Amy Nicholls-Diver
One comment

Tony Abbott has continued into a third day of cringe-inducing foot-in-mouth, referring to same-sex marriage as ‘the fashion of the moment.’ In an interview with John Laws, Abbott spoke about his personal conviction that marriage is between a man and a woman. ‘I know where I stand on this.

I am an only child and I hate sharing, particularly bathrooms. As I have the pleasure of being a poor uni student and still live at home, I must tolerate my mother’s house guests using my amenities. My mother and I live alone with no man in sight except for when we occasionally wave to…

Zoya Patel

There is a problem with modern feminism. This will come as no surprise to anyone, considering all I ever hear about feminism are the various problems associated with it. Whether people are debating the true meaning of the word “misogyny”, or whether or not feminists are humourless bitches, or whether or not we should shave…

Now I want to start off by saying that I while I’m not religious myself, I have nothing against religion. I understand that people have different beliefs to me and I respect that. Besides, even if I didn’t, it’s not any of my business anyway and certainly not my place to say so. But I…

Josephine Mandarano
One comment

The latest polling shows that 62 percent of Australians support same-sex marriage, yet current legislation does not reflect this. As we talk more about the issue, support for legalising same-sex marriage also grows.
