    Is this the start of the removal of sex based protections that we are seeing happen in the U.K. and Canada?

    Is the government that desperate for votes and to appear woke that they are going to continue treating women with contempt?

      I fear you’re 100% correct. The idiocy of these people is staggering.

      Enough, equal rights for all and ZERO special rights for none.

    “don’t discriminate against gay people, for I, Zappone, am one. Go hell for leather if you wanna be mean to children though. I clearly don’t care about that, I withheld 60m from sick children despertely in need.”

    What about the Qs ? Is it not LGBTQI+. Looks like someone has shafted the Qs. My money is on the Ls. Could be the Is mind. It’s all friendly at first and then the next thing you’re getting shafted.

        So you’re ok with children being surrounded and educated by state sponsored sexual deviants?

        And then you have the cheek to make a prejudiced remark against Catholics.

        Would you do the same against muslims?

        What about the Immans who preach child marriage and genital mutilation?

        Or is that the type of thing you’re striving for?

            Is ybisted also in favour of Drag Queen Story Time, masturbating babies, child marriage and genital mutilation, all before puberty?

          2. Ban Doyle

            So yyou are in favour of teaching sexual deviancy to children.

            Are you also in favour of mutilating their genitals should “traditions” require it?

          Hey Ban
          In your order
          So you’re ok with children being surrounded and educated by state sponsored sexual deviants?
          No. Which is why I don’t send my one to any religious held school, call it a risk management plan to alleviate risk of exposure to sexual deviants
          as you called them yourself like

          And then you have the cheek to make a prejudiced remark against Catholics. That is my default position – to point out Hypocrisy and double Standards, a bit like calling out Conflict of Interest risk being a Professional obligation of mine ; its absolutely not cheek. Catholics – well your kind of Catholic, might call it a Vocation.

          Would you do the same against muslims? Do what?

          What about the Immans who preach child marriage and genital mutilation? Tell me who and where they are, and I will report them myself to the Gardai

          Or is that the type of thing you’re striving for? If you mean Tolerance, then yes I am. Tolerance = Democracy.
          And Tolerance promises Equality. Guaranteed Equality, for all and without condition.
          And particularly for you and your pals, Tolerance guarantees that Free Speech is not just protected and guaranteed, or something you have to sue for. An inherent culture of Tolerance promises Free Speech is not just observed, but actually enhanced enriched and encouraged.

          And to ensure an endemic undeniable culture of Tolerance, it has to be a naturally inherent behaviour, and that comes from parenting, or rearing if you like, and learning. From Day 1.
          And it has to be widespread, so the classroom is the natural and obvious space for Tolerance to be embedded into any young mind. I’m a happier taxpayer knowing that this is the type of education the State is investing in.

          And Shur’ don’t Catholics try and rope children in as early as they can by promising that Baptism is the promise of eternal life, or something like that?
          Baby Cheezuz t’night Ban!

          Muslims and Catholics are both baddies, institutionally they both ride kids both figuratively and mentally, they got you Ban Doyle, but know this: god does not exist. Whether “moral” or “immoral” , when you die you go into a black mindless void as if you never existed in the first place. Happy Kwanzaa everyone and a gay new year!!

            Not for the poor old Qs. It won’t be a G new year for them. Looks like they’ve been completely left out and forgotten about. The way things are going it’s going to be the As, BDSMs, Cs, LGBTI+, Fs, … I could fill every letter of the alphabet, and the lucky Bs are already getting 2 goes, why, even a + is getting a go, but no Qs. Is it possible, even in this age of new found tolerance and inclusion that Q is just a step too far for a government department.. or, is it the the Ls don’t like the Qs.. these are questions that must be answered..
