The Anti Marriage Equality Campaign Has Rebranded As “Binary Australia” To Shit On Trans People
Ah yes the two genders: fear and bigotry.
The goons who tried to stop marriage equality have now turned their attention to attacking trans people, because sitting down and shutting up is too much of a challenge apparently.
The organisation formerly known as “Marriage Alliance” was a stalwart of the famously unsuccessful No campaign in the postal survey on marriage equality, where it spouted ineffective bigoted shit and also famously made this terrible, incomprehensible iceberg ad.
Shockingly, this approach failed to stop marriage equality from passing, so the organisation has now passed the mantle to a new organisation called “Binary Australia”, which will, uh, “carry on the fight for traditional values that celebrate the inherent differences between boys and girls, men and women”.
“Now that same-sex marriage laws have been passed in Australia, what’s next?” is how Marriage Alliance announced the rebrand a few days ago. “Right now, a powerful group of radicals are fighting to redefine what is male and female – and they want to infiltrate our children’s classrooms with their subversive message.”
“Binary is going to pick up the mantle from Marriage Alliance and carry on the fight for traditional values that celebrate the inherent differences between boys and girls, men and women.”

Thankfully, Marriage Alliance has never been a particularly effective organisation, so hopefully, Binary Australia will be the same. Still, let this be your weekly reminder that attacks on the queer community are still ongoing a year after the postal survey ended. As always, look out for your trans mates (and if you’ve got some free time on your hands, maybe send Binary Australia some of the radical gender ideology that gets them so hot and bothered).
And if, heaven forbid, you find yourself thinking Binary Australia’s got the right idea, maybe read this first. Or this. Or this. Or this. Honestly, there are plenty of resources out there that will patiently guide you through the realisation that transgender people are human beings deserving of respect, and also that things like gender-neutral bathrooms are really not that scary. Have a nice day.
