Hey have any of you heard of a thing called 'the plebiscite'? It would surprise me if you had, it has hardly been talked about or discussed ad nauseam or debated or in the media every single day or anything like that. 


If you aren't exactly sure what the plebiscite is or what it entails, don't worry, neither does the government who is trying to implement it. The latest update, which could change at any moment because it's such a hot plebiscite-y mess, is that cabinet has agreed to a proposal for a marriage equality plebiscite to be held on February 11, 2017. Turnbull is apparently going to personally introduce the plebiscite bill to parliament on Wednesday. Australians will be asked the question: "Do you support a change in the law to allow same-sex couples to marry?" The 'yes' and 'no' sides will both receive $7.5 million in public funding for the campaign leading up to the vote. Labor is yet to say if they will vote down the bill or not.  


There have been a lot of facts and figures flying around lately, so me, a well-known statistics and graph and maths expert, is here to help you understand. Here are some pie charts that explain many facets of the entire debate.

Ladies, we've blown it. Some men have said they'll never date a feminist.
A journalist wrote an article titled "Why I'll never date a feminist". He is one of a movement of men who have claimed the same, unwilling to deal with women 'having opinions' and other annoying things. Comedian Rebecca Shaw was heartbroken to see the article, and is here to implore feminists to change. Before it's too late.
