A third party I could support

Introducing the Australian Sex Party:

The party, with the slogan "we're serious about sex", launches at Melbourne Sexpo on November 20th and party convenor Fiona Patten is confident it will gain the 500 members required to register and contest state Upper House and Senate seats.


"This really came out of 20 years of lobbying on sex and censorship and then... the latest being the compulsory internet filter, which will ... prohibit and blacklist adult material that is currently legal in magazines, books and film," she said.

The main thing the Sex Party is concerned about is the mandatory Internet filter that the Australian government requires all of that nation's ISP's to use. Another issue they advocate for is the establishment of a national sex education curriculum.

Also, they like attention:

"We felt that - sex in a crowded room - now we've got your attention. It's half the problem with politicians, because they still giggle when they say the word sex, and that's why we have such idiotic policies at state and federal levels."

Glad to hear that Americans aren't the only ones who behave like that.
