It may be hard to swallow now, but what has now been created is a public whose opinion was ignored and affronted. Fights are only just beginning and maybe now we won’t have a latent Australia who allows government to just do as it sees fit. Pay close attention to everything Abbott does. Write to your local Member EVERY TIME he acts out. Write to his daughters about misogyny, to his Comms staff about bigotry, and to his representatives in other states about the humility they must have around our protection-not domination. If we thought equality would be easy, we were wrong. But the battle for it, where we see who really wants it, begins now. To flee our country sounds like nothing more than cowardice and admission of defeat. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one….
