Maybe I need to rename this blog News with Nipples and Tony Abbott…
Tony Abbott on ABC: There is no doubt that (homosexuality) challenges, if you like, orthodox notions of the right order of things… I probably feel a bit threatened, as so many people do. It’s a fact of life.
His explanation for his comment afterwards? It was “spontaneous”. Which means it’s what he really thinks, as opposed to what he’s been told to say.
I love the response by gay rights campaigner Gary Burns: Why is he using such dangerous words? How could he feel threatened? You know what I’m frightened by? Funnel-web spiders and crocodiles.
