Inga B. : Okay. All the homophobes and haters-armchair-critics who appeared in the comments are going to fuck themselves now, dancing cancan and smiling. I infringe the rights of homophobes, what a pity. (Rude? Bad manners? Yes.) The comments are being deleted. Upd: If you express your opinion respectfully, it's okay, even if I absolutely do not agree with you. It's not my business or anyone else's. Let's just not be such assholes.

Graaanuf : Looking forward to my 'no' vote.

levethane : People getting mad about gay people getting married are the same as people getting mad at McDonald's if someone orders a different food item than them, it's not going to effect them in any way yet they somehow think it does..

Mithras Revisited : There is not a non religious reason to oppose marriage. Religions do not own marriage, I wish they would stop making that claim. This government needs to be thrown out at the next election.

Matt Jay : Will be posting a 'no' vote.

Tisnot Mynaim : I'm an admitted tiny bit of a homophobe, but I would of voted in the positive! But after seeing this vid, on principle and just as a show of a middle finger to this starving artist mother fucker and a "FUCK YOU, dont call me names," I'm now going to vote in the negative! Thanks Tim for changing my mind and helping me make my FINAL decision...... That will be a "NO, from me!!" Fucking lefties, just dont know when to shut the fuck up!

Gus Johnson : Hey i am fine, i am hetro, divorced, if Gay Couples want to go through the crap i have done, so good.. Marriage is fine, but when it Fucks Up? Welcome to crap..

Cubonica : As a member of the LGB community I'll be voting No.

HeyItz Keshiaa : AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!

Matthew Dunn : I am not homophobic but it was very rude when you said to shove the bible up your ass

TJO : Gay is Not a mental. Disorder..... Transgendersims and that is why unfortunately I will be voting no...

Google Google : All comments opposing same-sex marriage are just bots. Their views don't matter.

Organised Mum Life : I actually laughed quite a bit in this, it's well done. I'm voting YES.

Glen Martin : Homophobic is a loaded term is it not? Because it suggests that if you do not agree with a particular line of thinking regarding such issues, then something is wrong with you. Using such terminology attempts to stifle debate and ostracise anyone who speaks to the contrary. So if there is to be open discussion then do not be afraid, but be open.

Real Invincible Shield : how is this on trending!!!

Stevyster : I was gunna vote yes because its the right thing to do, but after having heard this passive agressive self promoting fucktard call my country homophobic I think I'm just gunna stay out of it and not gunna vote at all👍

mi cun : To all those who think marriage is between a man and a women because the bible says so marriage is not defined by the bible. Over 74% of marriages, in Australia, in 2015, did not involve a religious ceremony.

Trippy Buisness : I'm all for lesbians if there hot but no homo they weird me out

Spiro Theodorakis : No such thing as marriage equality, just marriage between a man and woman, phobia is irrational fear. Filthy Sodomites, what next, the legalisation of pedophilia.

spianny : I have the solution, don't call it marriage but another name as its a different type of relationship. One makes babies, the other doesn't :) where's my award :p

Stacy LMFAO at H8rs : LGBTQ Marriage affects you the same way Marriage affects you now. It doesn't 99.9% of the time you don't even know they're happening. Fucking have a whinge you "vote no" bastards.

Taylor Lebar : For god sakes out government is fucked up!

MAD MAN : People who are homophobic are probably just the ones who get tired of your LGBT adgenda...

Nigerian Prince : no one lives in Australia it's just a dessert

Joshua Barry : I do not think Homosexual union is for the good of the nation. Homosexual couples already have the exact same rights as married couples due to De Facto laws. Marriage is, and always has been, defined as a union between a man and a woman. As a Christian citizen of Australia, while I may love and seek to save Homosexuals, my loving them does not mean accepting their way of life. Vote to keep marriage as it is: beteeen a man and a woman.

J Kinkaid : Do you have any gay friends? We are well worth getting to know. We are all around you. You probably love someone in your family who is gay. We serve you in stores and hold your life in our hands in hospitals. And we rejoice with you when the universe gives you precious gifts like graduations, weddings and births because we have families too.

Lonelyartist05 : I'm an Aussie and I bisexual

KangaRude Media : Yep, stop having a Cry and get out and Vote YES!!! Don't cut your nose off to spite your face

Margot : Its simple YES YES YES YES Yes I cannot be bothered reading everyone's essays below. What wrongs with letting people being happy????

sea doo : If fags want to spread aids amongst them selves good luck to them. But cant adopt and spread aids to kids

LibertyDownUnder : I was going to vote YES until these vile activists showed their hateful nature. Count me in as a definite NO for this one. Blame Tim.

Lee John : I don't have a problem with gays , I only have disgusted feelings on how they disgrace the manhood and the loyalties of being a real man..

oh wow : get ready to vote for pedo rights after this is done. Gays are already creeperly obsessed with "LGBTQ+" children and pushing sexuality on little kids

Bob Standen : Just read a news story where a church is offering a 'cure' for homosexuality using 3 days of starvation. I shared a house with the son of a Baptist minister who looked me in the eye and swore in the name of God Almighty that homosexuality is a 'disease' that can be caught and 'cured' he didn't say how. David Attenborough pointed out that roughly 10% of all animals are born homosexual as nearly 10% are left handed, it's just the way things are so get over it and let people be who they are.

King Loz : Boohoo at the crying homophobic white people in the comments. Don't like it? Gtfo then

RockaHero XL : This guy makes my country look bad!

James Taylor : The reason it is going to be a postal vote is that labour and the greens rejected the original proposal which was to have a compulsory plebiscite that everyone would have had to vote in. Whatever faults the government may have, don't blame them for ones that they don't.

Hubert Delihammer : People that will vote 'no' may not be homophobic. I will vote 'no' and I know others that will however we are NOT homophobic whatsoever. It is not about fear or intolerance of homosexuals, it is about other factors that many pro-LGBT people do not see. One big factor for me is about adopted children who need a mother/father figure in their life. I can already hear pro-LGBT activists yelling at me for making a homophobic statement however it is not. When I say this I am considering the children as the first priority and putting their needs ahead of the wish to have children.

LORD GABEN : TBH I couldn't give less of a god damn fuck if the gays marry let them be happy

louis : The day of the election will just be another normal day for me....

Mathew Hale : I support gay divorce Everyone has an equal right to be miserable and bankrupt (Joke, I think)

Scott Mac : Who is this Tim bloke? So lets all roll over and not have a point of view opposite to others. Geez, there's so much other important sh@t going down, why do they want all the focus.

awesome guy : this is actually sorta true

Vince K : So Tim says that a plebiscite might be "noxious" but calls people he disagrees with "bigoted c***s". Hmmm..... Perhaps Tim is supporting the No vote, cause that's what hate songs like this will achieve.

BlackLives Matter : Why tf is this garbage on the trending

Marty Taylor : Gay marriage? Fine with me but I think an additional law that protects churches and such from discrimination should be added So if a church does not want to marry 2 guys they won't get slammed by the law for holding to their own beliefs...

Bennyboy1985 : "OMG how do we not have SSM? It's The Current Year and the overwhelming majority of Australians support it anyway!"/ "A plebiscite is wrong because bigots will get to have their say and ensure SSM doesn't get passed!" ^ Which one is it? Regressives yet again showing their true colours... The only people more pathetic than useful idiots like Minchin are the group-thinkers who think his humour to be clever, profound or "edgy"- the kind of people who love to bash the Catholic Church for homophobic bigotry amidst cries of "OMG It's The Current Year!" while gushing over the likes of Waleed and Yassmin without daring to ask what they REALLY think of SSM (being devout followers of a certain Abrahamic faith and all- can't do that because it's racist apparently)... And let's not bother to discuss the abnormally high suicide rates for gay men (which are higher than the suicide rates for straight men, that are already high enough to be of particular concern). Let's not bother concerning ourselves with the abnormally high rates of mental health issues or its' offshoots (alcoholism, drug abuse) amongst gay men either- that's going too far down the rabbit hole. Let's not think too hard about any of the stuff that's really going to make a difference in the lives of people with sexual preferences different to ours. Instead, let's just change our Fb profile pic to a rainbow flag filter, regurgitate what the ABC, SBS and Buzzfeed says and crap on about "equality" so everybody else can see what a good, progressive little Smurf we are and tick a box next to our name as being on the "right side of history"...because that'll fix everything and then we can feel smug and clever knowing that we did our part before we go back to watching The Project or whatever low-rent reality show is serving as the latest vehicle for advertisers to flog their products to the masses...

IRONCLAD : why the fuck is this trending

Freewheeler ! : Homophobic is just a made-up word that means nothing except as an insult. I could with greater justification and accuracy refer to all lesbians as manphobic or even penisphobic and all gay men as womanphobic or vaginaphobic. No one who uses "homophobic" as a slur can have any reasonable objection to that.
