I have no words

I can't begin to say how angry this made me. I sincerely hope Barnaby Joyce and co. are soundly defeated at the next election; this is not someone that I trust with running the country. In fact this is almost enough to persuade me to move to his electorate, just so I could vote against him.

Nationals Senate leader Barnaby Joyce said his four daughters would be affected if same sex marriage was allowed.

"We know that the best protection for those girls is that they get themselves into a secure relationship with a loving husband and I want that to happen for them.

"I don't want any legislator to take that right away from me."

Because of course their only option in life is to marry gay men, and if they're marrying each other, then who is left for the Joyce girls to get hitched to? And everyone knows that without a man their lives are incomplete.
