Facebook for politicians is a double edged sword. Some like to think they are engaging with people, this was the deluded strategy of Trevor Mallard and Labour. Others think it is good for debate…until your daughter gives you a spank.
Good on Damien O’Connor’s daughter showing the generational divide up in such a public manner. Bridgette O’Connor says it well:
Unfortunately people do not make the choice to be gay, it is who they are. They cannot change this and are people like you and I. Why should they be denied the same human right everyone else is entitled to just because they love someone the same sex? I hope he does vote for gay marriage as society needs to wake up and realise these are normal people who deserve the same treatment and rights as everyone else.
Damien should listen to his daughter.
