  1. That’s Australia for you….Under all the glitz of Mardi Gras, it’s a severely machoistic, homophobic society.

    1. Are you from Australia? Cos I live here, it’s not as bad as you think. It used to be a lot worse, and it is still largely hetero-normative, but things are changing for the better.

  2. I’m willing to bet that Marcus Andrew Georgiou can’t even muster an erection for the missus without thinking of his comrades standing to attention.

  3. yet no public condemnation of the guys actions. No statement about equality amongst their recruits and protection of a persons privacy or family life.

  4. Australia still suffers from colonialist masculinity. Georgiou is possibly also 2nd or third generation Australian so would have been raised with an old world european image of masculinity so the guy is pretty well screwed in terms of functionailty due his deluded machismo

      He resembles an angry pig. Second or third generation.

  5. The top brass should have reprimanded the soldiers involved and educated them more.

    Instead they swept in under the carpet, hoping the issue will go away.

    Homophobia in the military 20 years on. Something wrong, somewhere.
