Qld news today reports Qld Driver's Licences will no longer state that the holder is a male or female after complaints from the LGBTI that it was discriminatory. Appears they do not know if they are male or female ???

 Also the height of the holder will also not be stated as that is also discriminatory.  ???

Seriously when will this absolute stupidity stop.  Why do minority groups have so much power?

I wish the media would state who gave the final decision. Who is the idiot who said, 'yep, that is a brilliant idea'.  Name and shame them. Sad really that their greatest achievement in life is to make these kind of decisions.  What is next, no photo as that is discriminatory. What the hell, how about a licence is no longer needed.....

I just read this post after seeing the previous post. Don't know what the big deal is, NSW licences don't show any of that info now.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Friend of mine (serving police officer) said the info details including gender are now encrypted in the chip on the new QLD licenses, so it isn't required to be printed on the license card

Yep and there is no reason to have the details on the licence because of advances in technology, but the news article also says,

'“TMR has received complaints and suggestions from members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community about displaying gender/sex (M or F) on TMR cards,” the leaked document said.
The leaked document also claimed personal information such as a person’s hair and eye colour was also scrubbed because it could be potentially “perceived as discriminatory”.'

And that was my point. If the reason was only because of advances in technology then no big deal, but why did the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) make a deal about appeasing a minority group.  And will the next step be that they can not ask those questions and so they will not be recorded?  Just saying.      Kevin

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

As you do in the nanny state-

so she was offered free tickets to bring her own interpreter but knocked that offer back...will be interesting to see how this pans out, every concert / event held anywhere would need an interpreter if she wins

Theres a fair chance these guys did make it after all .. The authorities seem to have just wanted it all to go away and stay with line
 the escapee's  never made it out  alive ..Interesting though ...
Ive always reckoned they did ..

Most likely not even born here...

I've just been having a robust conversation on BookFace with a couple of wankers, one of whom I know though an old performance car club and his brother.  His whole family immigrated from the UK, but because they a white fellas trip visiting a few communities, they're both experts on what the indigenous people and those like me with blood lineage want...

I'm a massive advocate of love it or leave.  You carry on like that bloke today - find somewhere to deport him to, I'll pass the hat to pay for the flight

 Not sure SHE would take you offer, she's not an immigrant either, she was an indigenous protester whipping up hysteria.

She was the one that when told she couldnt have a permit for her protest march today , told them to get stuffed its our land and we will do what want.  Why the hell didnt they enforce the law.
Australia day is a day for all Australians to come together to celebrate no matter what the colour of your skin or the religion you follow why dont these trouble making  twats carry out their protests on the 22nd of August?

They should have been thrown out.
It's one thing to Demonstrate in a public place, It's quite another thing to invade private property to do it.
The people in there as customers, were there as guests, at the invitation of the business.
Why can't the patrons/guests be protected from this thinly disguised anarchy.

I can't understand why restaurant management did not intervene and the police called.
Great way to have your evening spoiled by idiot protesters. Simple trespass laws apply or at least a breach of the peace, ask them to leave, if they do not leave or return they should be charged.

If I was a patron I would have been tempted to sacrifice a bit of my steak and pop it in their mouth as they were chanting.

If the customers weren’t eating the steak then the cow died in vain.

Reality is if no one eats steak then cows won’t be breed and farmed so what exactly are they saving?

No lefty is a vegan. We're all meat and potatoes people(and chicken, pork fish, venison, rabbit, whatever I can catch I'll eat).
They're feel good raving lunatics. My nephew is one, but I know he eats meat when alone. His girlfriend is 100kg+, you dont get that big eating lentils and tofu.
Everyone loves bacon. Even Muslims get up at midnight when no ones looking and eat bacon. How is it possible to live in a world without it?
