Germany Legalised Same-Sex Marriage And Australians Are Shook
"So Germany legalised same sex marriage and I'm here like 'OH HAI AUSTRALIA!'"
Germany became the 23rd country in the world to legalise marriage equality on Friday.
Meanwhile in Australia... there's still a massive brawl about how marriage equality should be legalised.
Polling repeatedly shows that a majority of Australians support marriage equality. Both major party leaders support reform, as do a majority of parliamentarians.
However, the country is locked in a political stalemate over whether there should be a national vote on marriage (broadly supported by the government and anti-marriage equality groups) or a vote in the parliament (broadly supported by the opposition and LGBTI rights groups).
