Reasonable post. Agree for the most part.Not strictly (no issue is) but there seems a very strong correlation between conservative<->progressive on attitude towards gay people.
Liberal voters might point to Labor seats holding numerous districts which voted No but the Labor party is not a progressive party so that point is moot.
No doubt. No one can be put into a box and there are always outliers.
Agreed but in the context of Bigfooty it is generally easiest. Very few of us have the time to clarify and categorise each part of the political spectrum on every post.
Even paid journalists don't do this, although this is obviously to weaponise the right/left spectrum, get a rise out of people and clicks for their advertisers.
Regarding 'outliers'; I think there would be more than a few random stragglers on the outer edges of a bell curve - aka outliers - that identify as conservative and are also gay.
I also think that number will likely increase now that SSM is legal in Australia.
As far as the stereotypical true blue diehard lefty(zealot), then not so much. In that case, I think the term outlier would apply.
