Poll Result: 90% of Australians think children should not be allowed at Mardi Gras


In a poll which tallied nearly 5000 votes, 90% of respondents to The XYZ’s latest Viewer Poll opposed children being allowed at Mardi Gras. Or to put this another way, most sensible Australians think that taking a child along to an open air orgy is probably not a good idea.

Should children be allowed at Mardi Gras?

  • No (90%, 4,430 Votes)
  • Yes (10%, 482 Votes)

Total Voters: 4,912

There has been some discussion with libertarians on this subject, who make the argument that people should be free to choose, and to attempt to ban things falls into the leftist trap.

My response is that this is a different issue to something like allowing responsible adults to take drugs. Age restrictions exist for a reason, and they exist with regard to the sexually explicit in order to avoid sexualisation of children until a time that they are more mature. Given that Mardi Gras is an event designed specifically to flaunt sexuality, I think it is appropriate for age restrictions to apply.

    Opposites attract, same same repels
    Turn the rainbow flag one eighty
    And like shit it smells.
    From all the open sewerage
    Of homo anal proclivity
    And they’re the ones who truly hate
    Normal sexual activity.

    They know they are perverted
    In pedophilia they take pride
    That’s why they have much higher rates
    Of drug induced suicide.

    And the diseases that they spread,
    Oh my word, it’s true,
    You will catch a dirty batch
    If you’re drilling your mate’s poo.

    ABC channel ME 23 is still really pushing the Gay Mardi Gras idea at kids.
    The ad is on so often it can only be considered deliberate brain washing.
