Vic election shows anti-LGBTI fear mongering a vote loster



Equality advocates say the poor Liberal vote in the Victorian election shows fear-mongering on LGBTI issues is a vote loser.


Just.equal spokesperson, Rodney Croome, said,


“The Victorian election result confirms what the postal survey already showed, scare campaigns on LGBTI issues don’t work.”


“The Victorian Liberal Party’s attempt to ramp up fears about the Safe School program and transgender equality backfired spectacularly.”


“Credit should be given to community advocates, as well as Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, for clearly and patiently explaining why LGBTI equality and inclusion matter.”


“The lesson for other states and for the federal election is clear, Australians punish those who play up to anti-LGBTI prejudice and reward those who stand up to that prejudice.”

    Is Croome that stupid, the result of the Victorian election has nothing to do with LGBTBQI, even the Greens lost at least 1% of voter confidence because of their pandering to the trannie issues re birth certificates changes.

    Victorians like the rest of us are more concerned about our jobs, health education, electricity reliability and pricing, infrastructure and sustainable population issues.

    Dan Andrews won government because he had already started a massive rail project the NE Link to give Melbournians improved transport within the rapidly expanding Greater Melbourne.

    Croome, most of us voted for Gay Marriage you give you blokes and sheilas the Australian way of a “fair go”, why are you punishing us over this latest made up social nonsense!

    Most people’s priorities are not gender identity issues. As for the reasons why people are voting Labor, is that drawing a long bow? Note that the Greens haven’t performed well. Is that due for their support for the LGBTQI+ issues?And since when do you speak for all Australians?

    Threatening people who don’t support changes to Birth Certificates with some kind of “social” punishment is the manipulative tactic of a bully.

    Make a case for what you stand for, but clearly so people can understand it. Then put it up for a debate and accept all outcomes.

    Resorting to threats is cheap. Watch out, because the pendulum of social opinion swings, and it is always in motion.
