Signal Boost: Marriage Equality in Australia
The Australian federal House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs has an online survey up regarding marriage equality. If you're Australian, and interested in the subject (and you haven't already put in a response), have a look.
A few points worth noting:
* The committee has apparently been looking over this matter since 16 February this year.
* The survey expires on 20 April this year.
* As at 15 March, the majority of the 27,000 or so responses they'd received were in the negative.
* The first I heard of this survey (as a person who's in favour of marriage equality, but not passionate about the subject) was about half an hour ago, via Hoyden About Town.
If I were inclined to conspiracy theories, I'd say someone (or several someones) wanted to keep this survey under the radar. Hence my signal boost.
