So not sure why you should vote yes on the plebiscite? I got the answer for you….
The main reason you should vote yes is, well because…
It doesn’t affect you.
It really won’t change your life at all.
I think that’s the bit that so many people are missing about this whole thing.
You can still go on living your conservative life. If you vote yes, your heterosexual life isn’t going to change. You will still be married. You will still be accountable to your partner. You will still be your partner’s beneficiary. Your marriage will be no less valid.
But here’s the thing, it won’t change your life at all, but it will change someone else’s life. So much more than you will ever know.
You are gifting someone a chance to have a family that is recognised by all. A family that is happening already. Love is love regardless of how you feel.
You don’t need to necessary support gay rights, but you should support human rights.
By ticking the box and posting back your vote you are giving someone out there the chance you feel validated. The chance to feel love. The ability to see their life no longer covered in discrimination but rather in equality.
So don’t waste your chance to change someone else’s life for the better. Shouldn’t everyone have the right to love?
It won’t affect you, but mate I guarantee your vote will affect others.
