Good to see perpetual virtue signaling Victorian Premier Dan Andrews stay true to form. All about identity politics. Indeed crude slogans are unnecessary but who will be judge and jury over what is deemed “offensive” or not? We know is misogyny is out. What about misandry?
For those living in Wodonga, just move to Albury and register your car in NSW.
NZ PM Jacinda Ardern is in Australia and unsurprisingly the media is giddy with delight. Before we have Lisa Wilkinson write another open letter to ScoMo, What a surprise the NZ PM kicked off her tour in the Democratic People’s Republic of Victoria alongside Chief Commissar Dan Andrews.
While her wellness budget has been sold as a savior, remember in Australia our current commitments in wellness already outweigh NZ’s on a per capita basis. Maybe that’s why 570,000 Kiwis live here and only 39,000 Aussies in NZ.
It shouldn’t surprise coming from the Marxist Victorian government but the idea for girls as young as 11 to get access to the contraceptive pill without consent from the parents is plain irresponsible. Most parents worry about their kids. What they eat and what they put in their bodies. It isn’t they turn a blind eye to their kids potentially engaging in underage intercourse. Some kids may only want it to reduce pain during their menstrual cycle but to have a government provide a service which deliberately allows kids to bypass parental approval is downright wrong. Why does the state have a role giving kids who clearly aren’t of a sufficient mental maturity to fully comprehend what they are taking and then enable them to hide it from their guardians? It is hard enough tying to get kids to listen and become model citizens.
Allowing the government to effectively endorse actions that effectively suggest to kids they don’t need their parents consent opens a whole new can of worms about disobedience.
Why not just give kids the vote at age 11 if they’re of sufficient mental faculty, pay their taxes and contribute to society?
On the bright side at least it isn’t as bad as Bill 89 in Ottawa which allows the state to take custody of children from parents who don’t accept their kids gender identity.
