It was once the ‘cultural, religious, and historical view’ that women should not be members of parliament, Asians should not be allowed into Australia, and lesbians shouldn’t even exist, yet thankfully all that changed allowing people like Penny Wong to contribute to Australian society at the highest level. By opposing marriage equality, Penny Wong has betrayed gay and lesbian Australians, and by using culture, religion, and history to justify this opposition she has betrayed the principles of tolerance and inclusion that have given her immense opportunities as a lesbian woman of Chinese descent.
