End the "gay panic defense" petition
#1
In Queensland and in South Australia, it's actually a defense to allege that you were provoked by a gay or bisexual man as justification for murder. We need to change this law. The two current state governments are looking into repealing the "gay panic defense", however we need your support to sign a petition calling for the gay panic defense to be repealed in Queensland and in South Australia. Those are the last two states in Australia where the "gay panic law defense exists". So please sign the change.org petition and share it - The petition nearly has 300,000 signatures. I'm unable to provide the weblink here, so please go to google and search "gay panic defense petition Australia" - it's a change dot org petition.

Your support is much appreciated - Thank You.

P.S you don't need to be an Australian resident to sign the petition.

OK, the link was easy to find and I've just signed. The reason for signing I gave was "To drag Australia out of the dark ages".

So let me get this straight. There's a law in AU that states that if you claim you were provoked by a gay guy or bi guy, or female, then it's ok to have murdered the gay people? o_O
And I though Australia was a good country for gay people.

Signed. Though most of the time, a petition doesn't do shit for a cause. The only times a petition has worked was for Dark Souls to come to PC Tongue

Yes, that's just about it. Australia still doesn't allow same sex marriage. That's why when I signed the petition the reason I gave was to drag Australia out of the Dark Ages.

I was chatting with a guy from Australia about a month ago. Flirting with the idea of meeting him and such.
He talked so highly of Australia. So thought gay marriage and such was ok down there.
But damn, didn't think it was so bad that you can accuse the murdered for being gay and get away with f*cking murder. Murder isn't ok in any circumstances.
