  1. Not surprising, really, for a country so awash in testosterone. They need to look to their much more progressive neighbour, New Zealnd, for guidance on how to live in the 21st century instead of being so stuck in Victorian morality.

  2. Oh dear, the triumph of religious bigotry and hypocritical “victorian values” over experience and practicality and what has been proved to work.
    How on this earth can you give education about sexual health without giving any specifics and examples, utterly mad and unworkable.
    The most effective method of reducing bullying and encouraging healthy relationships and sexual health has been to encourage comprehensive sex AND relationship education and moderated open peer group discussion.

    yep thats Australia my own country – how embrassing!

    As usual backward and bigoted – full of a society that is marcho plus with good old fashioned sexism, racism, homophobia and can not let go of the convict past and refuse to move foward!

    Stuck in the 18th century as usual – refusing to change and innovate (just like my 64 year old dad)!!!!!

    Our consitution from 1900 is also racist and do not get me started on asylem seekers as well – because they are treated just as bad as the aboriginal people here!!!!!

    1. No bill of rights as well – when Canada, US, UK and New Zealand all have one!
