I’m not discriminating except when I am
Kevin Rudd’s sister, Loree Rudd, hasn’t been in the media spotlight for 5 minutes which has prompted her to say something utterly stupid in an attempt to have the bright light of public scrutiny focused on her again. She must be feeling unloved.
Well when you say shit like this, of course you’re going to be unloved.
For those of you who don’t know who Loree Rudd is, she is the sister of the again Prime Minister Kevin Rudd – she was a Labor Party member until she got so appalled by Labor’s support of gay marriage, she had to quit the party. She has been quoted in the Brisbane Times saying such lovely things as:
“I knew I didn’t want to stay in a party if that was their stand,” she said.
“It’s not something I believe in and it’s also the way it happened that I dislike.
“I no longer liked the direction the Labor Party was going at state or federal level and I couldn’t work for a party that had endorsed homosexuals marrying.”
“I don’t believe gay marriage is good for the community,” she said.
“Homosexuals should be loved and treated right and they should not be discriminated against.
“It is a horrible thing for them to be discriminated against and that’s why my brother introduced laws so they are not discriminated against.
“But to make that huge leap from their rights to breaking a commandment of Moses, to say homosexuals’ relationships is marriage, is utter nonsense.”
Really nice, right? So Loree Rudd doesn’t want gays to be discriminated against except when it comes to being able to marry. Sounds like the regular religious bullshit bigots spew when they don’t want to be seen as bigots but want to use their religion as justification for their bigotry. The article quotes Miss Rudd in December 2011.
Well July 2013 in quite a gap from December 2011, views can change and indeed they have.
KEVIN Rudd’s sister wants Australia to introduce a Vladimir Putin-style ban on schoolchildren being taught about homosexuality.
Loree Rudd – who says she is unlikely to help her brother on election day because she opposes his support for gay marriage – believes the maverick Russian leader’s hardline view on homosexuality is more enlightened than Western leaders.
“It’s like he (Putin) can see the problem ahead,” Ms Rudd, 62, who has just returned from a visit to Russia, said.
“I think that there should be a law (in Australia) protecting children from the propaganda of homosexuality as normal. They’re trying to build their family life and structure in Russia and people in the West don’t seem to understand our family life and structures are breaking down.
“I guess the bottom line, if there’s one thing I can say that can’t be challenged, it’s that society needs to protect its children as best they can.”
What the fuck does she think is taught in schools? How exactly is that going to work? Does she think that schools are going to divide up the girls and boys and teach them the mechanics of gay male and lesbian sex? Trust an idiot to reduce being gay down to nothing more than a sex act.
Even if normalising gays and lesbians is incorporated into sexual education, the only thing that happens in sexual education is schools is that teenagers are taught about the different types of STD’s and contraceptives available for preventing STDs and unwanted pregnancy. The mechanics of sexual acts are never taught because 1) that would be gross and I’m pretty sure illegal and 2) sexual acts don’t need to be taught to teenagers due to the fact a large majority of them are already having sex and most of them already know how heterosexual sex happens.
You know why?
Because heterosexual sex is fucking everywhere. (Excuse the pun)
It’s depicted in movies, books and television. It’s used as a way to sell pretty much anything and everything. Most of Lynx’s deoderant advertisements are sending the message that if you wear their deoderant, women will want to have sex with you among offering “tools” for men to manipulating women into wanting to get with you, you know instead of just asking them. Stripper poles for children exist for fucks sake.
And Loree Rudd is worried that some teenagers will come out of the closet once they are told in school that being gay or lesbian is okay?
