It really is time that parliamentarians got their acts together.

Their behaviour is becoming more and more appalling as time passes, and instead of the prime minister Malcolm Turnbull putting a stop to the abuse, he just ignores it. In the ultimate, is there any difference between Turnbull and Abbott?

Peter Dutton has made a pronouncement about certain business leaders - I don't hold many briefs for them either - which is disgusting, to say the least, by saying that they should just get on with their knitting and leave pronouncements about gay marriage to others who are involved with the political scene.

What unbelievable arrogance!

Then Barnaby Joyce throws in his penny's worth on the same and similar issues - parliament has more important issues to deal with than dykes and poofters wanting to tie the knot.

Let's face it - homophobia is alive and well and living in Australia, and we in the gay, lesbian, transgender and HIV/AIDS (GLTH) communities will have to continue fighting until we have achieved equality in every aspect of society.

Taking Dutton to other levels, his behaviour and that of his government and opposition colleagues have been guilty of breaching every human rights conditions available and contnue to do so on a daily basis.

We watch with horror the unfolding of the dramas of desperate people in Australia's concentration camps in Nauru and Manus and the ones in Australia's mainland and wonder how long this nightmare will continue.

We watch with horror the ongoing apartheid in our communities with out of proportion incarceration rates of the indigenous population, racism attacks on people of various communities, unquestioning support in overseas policies of apartheid states such as Israel, Palestinians living in the world's biggest concentration camps in Gaza and the West Bank occupied territories. and the horrors of ongoing wars in many countires aided and abetted by the military countries USA, UK, France, Germany, Russia, Australia, China, and many others too numerous to mention.

Disaster at every turn, and no end it sight.
