Things are changing: Sex, Cycling and Politics

Postby outnabike » Tue Sep 05, 2017 12:29 pm

No comments from me, but it is news and that's how I am treating it. No offense to me if mods feel the need to remove it.

Australian Cyclists Party
· News: It's time for Reason.
The Australian Cyclists Party will contest the next Federal Election by supporting Reason.
Chaotic conditions in Canberra, changes to electoral laws and the need for a rational and unencumbered voice in politics means it is time for like-minded parties to band together to maximise our chances for electoral success through a new, forward-looking party focused on a better future for all Australians. Reason will provide us with this opportunity.

Australian Sex Party to become the Reason Party
http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/ ... y185f.html

The Australian Sex Party will come to an end this week, with founder Fiona Patten set to deregister the party and unveil a new political party to reach more voters.
Ms Patten, who founded the Sex Party in 2009, is set to launch the Reason party on Tuesday, in an effort to appeal to a broader base ahead of state and federal elections.

I enhanced the thread title as it wasn't obvious what was changing... could have been a turtle coming out of hybination. The new title (sure you will agree) is pretty awesome.

Back to politics, cycling and the sex party... I put up a piece on BNA about the announcement. At the time I was not aware of the link between The ex-Sex party and Reason.

I joined the Australian Cyclists Party in its early days, but I think I'm going to reconsider that now.

Arh, so that's what is behind the upsurge in those flamin' knicks with a partially see though rear ends that I've spotted a few time lately. Available at you local sex shop rather than your LBS. ;)

Thanks Chris Your poetic license is much better than mine. That article is pretty good , I had not seen it. Good to refresh it here. :)

My disclosure is the same as yours, I quit when they united with the science party.

Her view is in that site I quoted in my OP. :) Pretty standard stuff really..... :)

"Ms Patten, who was outside Flinders Street Station on Monday handing out how to vote cards on same sex marriage, said the Reason Party would continue to advocate for key Sex Party policies, including legalisation of illicit drugs and euthanasia laws.

She intends to be the "voice of reason" in politics today, she said, with the party putting personal freedom and respect for human rights at the centre of its political philosophy.

"People are sick of irrational politics. Many are deeply concerned about the future of our country," she said."

So hopefully kids will now get taught how to ride a bike at school, in addition to how to cross dress, masturbate, and role play having sex with either sex!

I'm not sure how you equated anything in this thread about what is taught or not taught in schools, except maybe a wish to push a personal agenda?

Well the Sex Party does support the Safe Schools Program so combining with the Cyclists' Party could indeed see an education policy consist with CKinnard's claim.

But completely irrelevant to the thread and cycling. Sure, sometimes a political party's cycling policy will get mentioned on here, but that doesn't mean it's a free-for-all to start off-topic discussions on all of their other policies.
