LGBT campaign loses fight in parliament for House panel on gender diversity

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am unsure of the purpose  for these panels.

Are they similar to “Advisory Councils” which bring advice to Ministers regarding needs of certain groups, or the affect of legislation on specific groups of individuals?

Are the panels made up from the elected members or from appointed community members?

There's plenty of 'acceptance' as far as LGBTQWERTYs are concerned.

No special privileges for anyone.

 

Perhaps the role of the Panels are "advisory" regarding impacts of proposed legislation etc, and not about "special" privileges, they have them for people with disabilities/ageing and other "groups", hence my question about the role of the panels?

" LGBTQWERTY "

I like that, gave me a chuckle

I support that whole group towards equality, but am concerned about remembering right letters. Like trying to remember random password to some site

A sociologist professor friend, who taught gender politics, used the term "alphabet" community, and she was part of the "L" , so acceptable term for her

Huh? There is nothing offensive about the term alphabet community.

You want to be straight, up to you. You want to dress up in cargo shorts and sandals with socks or do a plumber's crack bend, that's up to you. I just don't you shouting it or waggling it (or not) in my face. 

You want him to waggle his plumber's crack in your face?

Oh some her students did lodge a complaint, as they thought it was disrespectful.
