“Political correctness in Australia has gone bonkers.” So said Queensland politician Jarrod Bleijie.
The Member for Kawana tweeted on Monday, “I just phoned MyGov to change my address. After giving my personal details I was asked ‘and is it ok to identify you as a male?'”
“Now the gov is asking born males if we will get offended by calling us males,” the State Opposition frontbencher continued. “This political correctness BS has gone way too far!”
*checks file* sorry, we got that wrong. You'll be identified as your correct gender, Snivelling Manbaby, from now on.
