An Australian mother with a gay son made an ad for same-sex marriage.

A bit of background, Alex.
The ad dates back quite a few months. She addresses the former Prime Minister, Phillip Rudd, who refused to back same-sex marriage because of his personal Christian convictions. The current incumbent, Julia Gillard, refuses to back same-sex marriage because she's spineless.
The OAM in her title refers to the Order of Australia Medal, a civic honour bestowed upon her by the national government for her community work as head of Australia's PFLAG, campaigning for same-sex marriage. Ironic, no?
I would vote for her! We need more mom´s like she is. The question she makes is a root of the whole conversation we have.
Being a bisexual man, though, means that you can do whatever you want when your spouse is a woman but there´s big no-no´s in a society when you are with a man. From this point of view old ways are ridiculous. The future is owned by bi´s.
