Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@nicilind I think it's more cynical than that. You can't milk a "debate" unless you legitimise arguments on both sides.Despicable. Flat-out lies. Why does the media allow SSM opponents to get away with this bullsh that the anti-same sex marriage playbook lines up closely with the arguments made by people who opposed interracial marriage.Glad I'm not watching this Bernardi bullshit. I would have thrown a chair through a window by now.#ShorterBernardi #NPC #auspol

Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@emrulelayton Plus you have Australian nicknames to contend with. If you're not careful you'll end up with Gazza Rule-Layton.@emrulelayton On second thought, Bobby Layton sounds like he'd grow up to be a NASCAR driver.@emrulelayton Just putting it out there: Robert is a strong name for a masculine child.@emrulelayton Sorry, must have made a wrong assumption. On an unrelated note, you should come out and drink lots of hard liquor with us.@emrulelayton So have you actually come out and said it yet, or has it just been oblique references?@cailyoung @alisterrobbie UR A DICK M8FUCK @alisterrobbie IS EDITING A PIECE I DID TO CAMERA AND I HAVE TO SIT HERE AND WATCH/LISTEN AND IT'S HORRIBLE.Just watched the replay of Kolten Wong's grand slam.

Retweeted by Rob RuminskiNo words... "Someone impregnated you!"In which people joking around on Twitter accidentally discover sexual negotiation and active consent: critique on fleek@pwcc @Kerry_McBride Those guys are dicks.Also, in what universe is Blues fucking Traveller an appropriate suggestion after EDD, YouTube?On a late night Eleventh Dream Day jag, thanks to @tywilc: Australia continues to wipe its collective ass with the Refugee Convention:
@Typing_Monkey If it's satire, the guy is a tone-deaf jackass who isn't half as clever as he thinks he is.This is a prime example of why @kateiselin is awesome. #fuckyou #iwillneverwatchyou@drearyclocks Do it."Subsume your personality into his life/interests and act like the perfect version of a mother, but with sex stuff." Are you really asking, or do you already have your mind made up & would like some validation?Twitter needs a half-mute filter for "show me his useful links, but not his smug mansplaining".Sorry to hear @lenadunham + other "feminist" celebs support laws that endanger sex workers. I stand with @amnesty

What sort of licensing fees do you pay?@nathanrodger Don't say anything, @kateiselin. He should click like the rest of us.
