We’re a nation that elects extremely stupid politicians. So, the tendency from some journalists is to elevate their idiocy to higher planes of thinking. This services no-one but themselves.
Yesterday, Peter Dutton blamed the Flinders Street attack on the Muslim community, the ALP and the openness of our borders. Fear might split us, but we’re better than that.
The social media backlash against the golliwog dolls at the Adelaide Fair is legitimate. Just because it made sense to you as a child doesn’t mean it should as an adult.
The NSW Police using a Beyonce meme to victim shame rape victims for the ‘lols’ is a prime example of why we’re not taken seriously.
Cricket Australia dismissing an employee for advocating abortion is half the issue. We should care about this much more than a tampered ball.
I’m a right-wing voter, but the recent nonsense spouted by Latham and company has me wondering if we should hold our own accountable before we criticise the left.
The news that police will soon be able to stop anyone at airports and ask for their ID was met with hideous criticism. However, the move seems to be grounded in logic.
Mother’s Day is a grand celebration. However, to those who don’t fit the definition, today can be brutal.
Yesterday, the world witnessed the first fatality of the self-driving car. However, I don’t think the fear of technology is helpful, or lasting.

You could say that I’m a product of my environment, however, my fear of the other has followed me throughout my entire life. It’s taught me one particular lesson.
Frankly, I am shocked to hear the allegations against Don Burke. It doesn’t seem like something he’d do, which may be the problem. Why did it take so long to come out?
Today marks twenty years since the death of Diana, and I still remember it as if it was yesterday. Which is the problem. Two decades of tabloid speculation has twisted our memory of her. Time to let her rest.
Love is a fine thing, but gets old quick. The only true solution to making it last is doing things you absolutely hate.
Worrying research from California has explained that a worry-first lifestyle is actually beneficial to your mental health.
As for someone who witnessed the euphoria of 1970’s feminism, the landscape I see today is quite different, but has far surpassed us.

Considering the results from similar votes overseas, Malcolm Turnbull’s vague “one day” committal to the Australian Republic may be the best option.
