The 12 Most Ridiculous Lines From A 1932 Article Against Gay "Weddings"

A recently uncovered Australian newspaper article showed gay couples were trying to celebrate marriage almost 80 years ago. But, um... the reviews were pretty bad.

Posted on

Published March 4, 1932, in the Australian tabloid The Arrow, the article described "wide open immorality among Brisbane perverts," i.e. gay guys trying to get married. Needless to say, every line was absolutely ridiculous:


2. When they call the gay population "the pervert population" and Brisbane the headquarters for "hundreds of these queer semi-feminine men."


5. When they call the ceremonies "grimly reminiscent of the worst features of decadent civilisations."


10. When they get worried that a bunch of other gays are gonna swarm in from "the other States."

12. And finally when they complain that it's just NOT FAIR and that the police should take action "SPEEDILY, PLEASE!"
