  • Moiya
    -_-
  • Feelings™
    I can't. It's like, someone could shoot me if I just SAID I was gay and you panicked because of it???
  • Tiger Doughnut
    i mean, if women applied that logic every time a guy approached and flirted with them, that might actually cut down on a lot of rape cases
  • Tiger Doughnut
    actually, gay people were part of the Nazi's 'cleanup of Germany'

    so were disabled and mentally retarded people, iirc

    it's easy to forget some groups, they killed so many

    ...the thing i really don't get about this is
  • Hᴀɴɴɪʙᴀʟ Lᴇᴄʜᴇʀ
    As much as this defense could obviously be abused, I also realise that some people are raised by incredibly homophobic societies/parents
  • Hᴀɴɴɪʙᴀʟ Lᴇᴄʜᴇʀ
    and really do have that sort of a visceral reaction to being hit on (in reality or in their head) because it marks THEM as 'gay' (in their
  • Tiger Doughnut
    so many guys flirt aggressively with girls, and that's fine
  • Tiger Doughnut
    but the second it gets turned aroudn on them OH MY GOD I HAVE TO KILL HIM
  • Hᴀɴɴɪʙᴀʟ Lᴇᴄʜᴇʀ
    maybe they should do more therapy with people who commit hate crimes. Do they already do therapy with them? I don't really know.
  • cεℓεяү
    I don't either. It definitely is a society issue and not all about individuals and that's so hard to change.
  • kaburagi。
    if it was something like, idk punching someone for hitting on you IN GENERAL I could maybe be okay with that in (unsure) way but
  • Sir Herp-a-Derp
    i honestly do not understand people sometimes. And...really, my father is one of the most racist, prejudiced fucks in the history of
  • Sir Herp-a-Derp
    civilization, and has justified punching black guys at work because theyre black (he works construction). So uh, yeah. I know its not the
  • Sir Herp-a-Derp
    same but i was brought up to hate other races and I hate it. id never even dream of hating someone for that let alone using violence
  • Sir Herp-a-Derp
    so while yes, i understand that some people are brought up in very homophobic households and are scared of being seen as gay, it
  • Sir Herp-a-Derp
    really isnt a justification and this law is just heinous

    So this is an Austrailia-only petition?
  • Infychu
    This is AMAZINGLY stupid, good god.
  • Feelings™
    I signed and I'm in Sweden, so...
  • ѕнιp'ѕ мedιc
    It's a global petition! I signed too, and I'm in the US. The e-mail I got from Change.org said that he was counting on international support

    "gay panic" = Straight men being terrified that other men might treat them the same way that they themselves treat women.
  • «kate»
    i.e. If these "panicking" men were not inherently sexist douchebags then they would not react in such a way,
  • «kate»
    let alone even consider it to be an acceptable defense. X-(
  • «kate»
    So basically by supporting the gay panic loophole they are saying YEAH WE WOULD TOTALLY DESERVE IT IF WOMEN KILLED US FOR MAKING RAPE JOKES.
  • «kate»
    Because clearly they think they gay men simply flirting with them is equal to them threatening sex toward their preferred sex. -_-
  • «kate»
    Gee, that is not at all telling about how they view intimate relationships. At all.
  • «kate»
    Excuse me, I will just take my incoherent rage elsewhere >>
  • Moosie Pie
    Thanks for this signed immediately!
    And started by a Catholic priest, props!
  • tsu
    Signed even though I'm in the U.S., because they need to know how barbaric this looks to much of the rest of the world.
