More homosexual aggression

'No' vote volunteer has car windows smashed MINUTES before the same-sex marriage result - as campaigner says they are bracing for more abuse after Australia voted YES

Supporters of the 'no' vote in the same-sex marriage survey are bracing for an influx of abuse from 'yes' trolls, now that the country has voted in favour of gay marriage.

On Wednesday morning just hours before the announcement, Coalition for Marriage boss Lyle Shelton took to Twitter to share a photo highlighting such shocking abuse.

Showing a car belonging to a Coalition for Marriage volunteer with its windows fully smashed in, Mr Shelton described the act as 'unacceptable and unAustralian'.

With the 'yes' campaign winning the vote on Wednesday with 61.6 per cent support, those against legalising same-sex marriage are bracing for more abuse.

It comes just months after mums who fronted a TV ad for the 'no' vote prepare for an influx of racial and sexist abuse.

Labelled everything from 'dumb c***s' to 'bigots', one woman even received a threat from a 'yes voter' who vowed to 'f**k her children' if they grew up to be gay.

A spokesperson for the Coalition for Marriage said while the abuse had died down in the months since the campaign began, it was expected to heat up after the result.

Among shocking messages sent to the women were abuse and threats of violence to both them and their families.

'F**k you and f**k your spastic kids,' one wrote, while another said: 'Dumb c**t'.

'You're a disgusting f**king disgrace of not only a mother, but a human being,' said one man.

'You are a horrid mother and should be ashamed to call yourself Australian,' another wrote.

'Your children will have all sorts of misery throughout their lives growing up with an ignorant, homophobic parents such as you,' claimed another.

Lyle Shelton, the head of the Coalition for Marriage, said he had warned the mothers they would come under fire for the ad but never expected such vile backlash.

'We tried to prepare them for it, we warned them and we did everything we could to protect them, they were demonised by the 'yes' campaign,'


Children forced to learn about gay sex, workers sacked for speaking their minds and bakers taken to court over cake: The fears lurking behind the same-sex marriage bill

Parents losing the right to object to gay sex education, workers being sacked for expressing an opinion and bakers taken to court over cake.

With a 'Yes' vote result on Wednesday, conservative federal politicians have painted a troubling picture of Australia if same-sex marriage is legalised.

Even Labor senators are worried, with several backbenchers voting against any gay marriage bill on religious freedom grounds, to the chagrin of their party leader Bill Shorten.

Maverick Queensland crossbencher Bob Katter is so worried about parents losing the right to object to their children being taught the Safe Schools program under gay marriage he wants the law changed.

The Katter's Australian Party leader and renegade Nationals MP George Christensen, a fellow Queenslander, are working on a parliamentary bill that would give parents the right to pull their kids out of the controversial gender theory lessons.

Mr Katter, who holds the vast far-north Queensland seat of Kennedy, said the legalisation of same-sex marriage would force children into learning about gay sex and relationships.

'I don't want anyone to underestimate the damage that is being done here to the people of Australia,' federal parliament's longest-serving MP told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday night from Mareeba, south-west of Cairns. 'It opens the way for them to teach same-sex marriage in school.

'There are people preaching and teaching, and I use the word "preaching" before I use the word "teaching", because there are some very aggressive people involved in the homosexual movement in Australia. There are huge, grave dangers there.'

Mr Katter said the teaching of homosexuality in schools would cause lifelong damage to students. 'You are very vulnerable at that age,' he said.

'Unfortunately and sadly, these kids in the 12 to 15 age bracket are influenced to go down that pathway, they're looking at a much darker life than they would otherwise have.'

Mr Katter, who has been a state or federal MP since 1974, is also worried about workers falling foul of state anti-discrimination laws, and losing their jobs, for expressing an opinion critical of gay relationships.

In September, a Canberra woman was fired for saying 'It's okay to vote no' on Facebook, with her boss Madlin Sims calling it 'homophobic hate speech'.

Ms Sims, who runs a party entertainment company, said the woman was fired because she was 'extremely out and proud about her views on homosexuals.' 'As someone who has an responsibility to the vulnerable people we work with, could not risk her voicing those opinions to any children of ours,' she said. 

'It was never about giving people a fair go, it was all about punishing people that had different beliefs ... if a person thinks differently about homosexuality,' Mr Katter said.

New South Wales Nationals Senator John 'Wacka' Williams is worried about bakers being sued if they refuse to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.

'They might be hugely Christian, they don't believe in same-sex marriage, they refuse to bake the cake for a same-sex marriage ceremony or reception and hence they get sued,' the farmer from Inverell told Daily Mail Australia.

'Likewise, if it's a same-sex couple have a bakery and they don't want to bake a cake for the heterosexual marriage, I don't want them getting sued either.'

Victorian Liberal senator James Paterson is proposing a bill that would give bakers and florists the right to refuse to provide goods or services for a same-sex wedding.

'A baker could not refuse to bake a cake for someone who is gay who's having a birthday but they could decline to provide services to their wedding,' he told the ABC's 7.30 program on Monday night.

'So it's very limited and narrow. It's only about a wedding and that's in recognition that weddings are different from other things.

'People hold very strong views about it.'

It's a rival bill to one being proposed by West Australian gay Liberal senator Dean Smith, which would only give exemptions to church and religious groups when it comes to performing a same-sex wedding.

Tasmanian Labor senator Helen Polley, who voted 'No' in the $122 million gay marriage postal vote survey, is concerned about protecting religious freedom.

'We certainly need protections around religious freedoms so that we can avoid anti-discrimination cases like we saw in Tasmania against Archbishop Julian Porteous and the Australian Catholic Bishops in 2015,' she said about the case that was withdrawn last year.

Labor senator Deborah O'Neill, who hails from the NSW Central Coast, said she reserved the right to vote against a gay marriage bill, even though her boss Bill Shorten is in favour of redefining marriage.

'I will be exercising my conscience vote that I am entitled to in the Labor Party and I will be making that decision when the time comes,' she said.


Controversial sex education course that included 'Generation XXX' lesson that taught students about porn, sexting and 'painful sex' is axed from schools

A radical sex education course for senior students has been axed from schools after a review found it wasn't 'suitable' for all pupils.

The NSW government has decided to dump the Crossroads curriculum in favour of teaching Year 11 and 12 students how to drive, manage their finances and maintain their mental health.

Education Minister Rob Stokes flagged the teachings, which describe gender as a 'social construct' and sexuality as fluid, and said it may not be appropriate learning material for all school-aged children, The Australian reports.

According to the review, Year 7 and 8 students were being shown 'explicit' images involving sexual practices and sexually transmitted infections.

In other schools a lesson called 'Generation XXX' allegedly introduced students to sexting as well as pornographic sexual positions and how they 'look painful and are certainly not enjoyable'.

Not all students would be familiar with the concepts being presented to them, the review found.

In terms of gender-related issues, pupils were also being taught they could identify as a 'woman, man, two-spirit, genderqueer or genderless.'

As a substitute for these classes, students will instead study topics related to correct use of credit cards, consumer protection laws, domestic violence, drug education and safe driving skills.


Startup lets you shop for a postgraduate degree
Students considering further study have been delivered an early Christmas present, with the launch of Australia’s first comprehensive postgraduate degree comparison website earlier this month. is a brand new platform that allows students and professionals contemplating a graduate level degree to explore, compare, shortlist, and apply for over five thousand unique courses in one place.

Users can filter by study field, degree type, and region to generate a comprehensive list of courses that match their interests. Results can be sorted by tuition fees, duration, or even student satisfaction, allowing users to refine their results according to what is important to them.

Postgrad Australia’s founder, Richard McKeon, said “When you sum tuition fees, time off work, and potential career advancement, deciding to study a postgraduate degree is one of the biggest financial decisions people make in their lives.”

“For the other big life decisions, like buying a house, car, or insurance policy, many online comparators exist to help consumers to compare options, but for postgraduate degrees, the landscape was bare”, McKeon said.

McKeon came up with the idea for Postgrad Australia when he was researching his own master’s degree in Development Studies. “It took me an entire weekend to find all the information I needed to make a decision. The difference between offerings was immense; tuition fees ranged between just $12,000 to North of $50,000; some courses were offered online, but others were in person only; some courses offered credit for work experience, while others didn’t. I thought to myself: there has to be an easier way! After hearing similarly frustrating experiences from my classmates, I decided to launch Postgrad Australia”.

As the job market continues to become more competitive, more candidates are turning towards postgraduate qualifications to give them an edge. The number of Australians with a postgraduate degree has grown by 123% between 2006 and 2016, outpacing Bachelor degree growth at a rate of two to one [1].

Despite an ever increasing supply of students (or perhaps because of it), established universities have historically not had to compete aggressively on price and value. While some universities display tuition fees and reviews on their course pages, others make it difficult for students to find.

But McKeon argues that is about to change. “Millennials are used to comparing every purchase they make against the market. Compared to the generation before them, they’re less likely to enrol in a course just because it’s delivered by a sandstone university; they want to know the value they’ll get from it”.

With the average master’s degree costing between $20,000 and $37,000 in Australia [2], it’s not surprising that students will want to shop around for the right deal.

Over the last decade, the comparator website industry has exploded in Australia and around the world. Sites like iSelect, comparethemarket, and finder have become household names in Australia. The industry, however, is becoming increasingly proliferated, focussing on niche markets, rather than one-stop shops.
