Sex Party

The Australian Sex Party had a launch of some kind yesterday.  A sparsely attended affair in much the same way as these bodily painted individuals were clad (i.e. sparsely).

Clever, well the location of Tasmania was clever, however I don't think it's topographically accurate.  Mount Isa looks more appealing that I had previously imagined.


Thanks for visiting, but you're wasting your time if you read this post

So, I changed the layout of the blog. No reason. I mean it's not as if I ever do blog anything anyway, right? Right. Well, I checked the blog stats the other day and to my surprise the number of visitors increased by 50%*, so for them I figured I'd post something...

But what?

It's not as if I have any news, or developed any new opinions on anything. I haven't thought of anything funny to say for, what is it - 18 months now since my last joke. So this wont be a comedy post of any kind. So this post will be nothing but a complete waste of time. Comments to this post, if it even deserves any, will be along the lines of: "That's 2 minutes of my life I'll never get back, thanks nob!".

Hmmm, well ok, there is an election going on here in Australia.  So I should have an opinion on that...  Umm, well, I was pleased when Julia Gillard took over the Labor party leadership recently from Kevin Rudd.  I thought finally a leader with balls, but alas no.  Different shit to be sure but the same ol' smell.

I think I'm going to vote for the Sex Party this year because their polices look the best:

  • Bring about the establishment of a truly national classification scheme which includes a uniform non-violent erotica rating for explicit adult material for all jurisdictions and through all media including the Internet and computer games.
  • Introduce an R and X rating for computer games
  • To overturn mandatory ISP filtering of the Internet and return Internet censorship to parents and individuals.
  • We oppose the mandatory retention of all Australian users’ internet browsing history and emails by ISPs for at-will inspection by law enforcement agencies, and support strong judicial oversight over the ability of law enforcement to access individuals’ internet and email data.
  • To bring about the development of a national sex education curriculum as a first step in preventing the sexualisation of children.
  • Development of a national internet education scheme for parents.
  • To enact national anti discrimination laws which make it illegal to unfairly discriminate against people or companies on the basis of job, occupation, profession or calling.
  • To bring about equal numbers of women in the Parliament through enabling the Federal Discrimination Act to have jurisdiction extending to political parties.
  • To create total equal rights in all areas of the law including same sex marriage.
  • Overturn racist laws that ban adults living in and visiting aboriginal communities in the NT from possessing erotic and sexual media.
  • Ensure the sexual rights and freedoms of people with a disability and the elderly.
  • To enact national pregnancy termination laws along the same lines as divorce law — which allow for legal, no-fault and guilt-free processes for women seeking termination.
  • The listing of Viagra, Cialis and other drugs used to treat sexual dysfunction, on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
  • Overturn restrictions on aid to overseas family planning organisations that reference abortion.
Protection of Children
  • Convene a Royal Commission into child sex abuse in the nation’s religious institutions.
  • Develop global approaches to tackling child pornography which focus on detection and apprehension of the producers of the material.
Workplace Relations
  • Ensure that the introduction of paid maternity leave is fair and equitable for small businesses.
  • Abolish sex slavery and sexual servitude by introducing non morality-based immigration policies that allow bona-fide sex workers to work legally in Australia.
  • Ending the tax exempt status for religions.

Yes, yes, yes, yes & yes.  I like it.  So yeah, I've got no news, opinions or jokes so maybe I won't post anything after all.
