Australian Taxation Office sets three per cent LGBT ‘benchmark’ to encourage gay employees to come out of the closet.

The Australian Taxation Office has introduced a 3% inclusion benchmark to encourage LGBT employees to come out of the closet and “bring their whole selves to work.”

Mark Powell at The Spectator writes: “So, let me get this straight (if you’ll pardon the pun). Getting a job with the ATO may now no longer be based solely on ability but ultimately whatever sexual predilection you identify as being? In keeping with the introduction of their ‘sexuality quota’ maybe they could even change their name to ‘The Gay-T.O’?”

Remember when Lisa Wilkinson—the highly-paid host of Channel Ten’s, The Project—claimed that ‘absolutely nothing’ would change with the redefinition of marriage? Well, less than twelve months later?
