Some people should have never been born.

Alternatively titled- Bob Katter & Barnaby Joyce you are F*ckwits.

I jumped on twitter this afternoon and straight away notice that Bob Katter, Barnaby Joyce and Tony Abbot were trending. A feeling of dread built up in my stomach as I checked out the news for the day online. First up I came across this article-

First off we have Bob and this quote-
"Truly this proposition deserves to be laughed at and ridiculed," he said to cheers and thunderous applause.
Yes, you read right. It was met by cheers and thunderous applause. I am disgusted that anyone can think like that. I am not naive enough to think that no-one does think that. But to publicly ridicule a large part of society is deplorable.

Then we have this by Barnaby Joyce, a father of four girls-

We know that the best protection for those girls is that they get themselves into a secure relationship with a loving husband, and I want that to happen for them.
 "I don't want any legislator to take that right away from me."
 WTF! First off, it makes me so so sad to think that as a father of four girls he is so closed minded. What if any of his girls are gay? How will they feel about themselves because of what their fathers beliefs are? Please tell me what exactly it is that we are protecting them from?

And how is any of the legislation in the Marriage Equality Bill impacting on his daughters ability to marry a loving husband if they choose to do so?

My keyboard is hating me right now for the pounding it is getting, but I am so very angry right now. I am disgusted that people in this nation actually support the beliefs of those to f*ckwits, I am astounded that they have had enough votes to be members of Parliament and I am embarrassed that they are both from the state that I call home.
