Kimby commented on Sophie Pointer's blog post Would you get Unioned?
"On a purely personal level, I'm not a big fan of marriage. My partner and I are already committed to each other; I don't see much point in wasting a load of money at a wedding just for a piece of paper. HOWEVER... we would really like to…"

Kimby commented on Sophie Pointer's blog post To Rally or not to Rally....that is the question.
"I totally understand Sophie, and I don't blame you at all.I won't be attending this time, due to a broken ankle. But even if I was fit to attend I would possibly not go anyway. Although I was right in the middle of it all last time, the…"

Kimby commented on Kimby's blog post Something small that made a big difference
"Hi Melina, thanks for the comment!I suppose since it wasn't a 'legal' marriage it was ok for people to not acknowledge it? *sigh* Isn't it interesting that sometimes it's what ISN'T said or done that has the biggest…"

"Yay! that's a great story. Such small tokens of acceptance really do make a difference.   When my partner and I got "married" in January 2009 I went back to the school I had been teaching at for 2 years with a ring on my finger,…"

"Thank you for your replies :)The day after this, I had someone use 'he' when we were talking about my partner. When I replied, I used "she", and the collegue I was speaking with immediately switched to "she" as well,…"

Andre Stoffels commented on Kimby's blog post Something small that made a big difference
"What a delightful simple story epitomising what probably everyone in society wants to feel - to simply be accepted for who we are.  Seemingly such a small thing to give but a huge gift to receive. Such a shame that too many…"

"That's a great story and made me smile Kimby! Maybe it's these small things that actually reflect social change... just as much as legal reform? It bodes really well for settling into your new work place, no?"

Something small that made a big difference

I am a teacher. I've worked in all different places: pre-schools, primary schools, high schools; mainstream schools, behavioural schools, special education schools, cultural schools. As someone in a same-sex relationship, I've discovered that each place has reacted to me in different ways. I've been accepted and ostracised; I've felt safe and felt targeted.

Islam and Me

"Thank you for the video Madhi!It upsets me when people make ignorant comments about Muslim people. Islam is like all the other religions - there is good, and bad; there are those who strive to understand, and there are those only believe what they…"

Marriage is so Gay!

"Thanks SophieThat's strange, because it was actually in a high school that I felt the most uncomfortable. But that being said, it was mainly due to a couple of idiots in high places :s"

Marriage is so Gay!

"Well, it tends to vary from place to place, and even person to person.DECS protective policies actually say that it is inappropriate to 'discuss personal details of lifestyle of self and others'. This was discussed during a Child-safe…"
