If you want to know what the Australian Labor Party is about, just take a look at the Consultation Draft of Labor’s National Platform. The consultation draft claims to “distill the policies and enduring values that Labor aspires to implement in government.”
So, what’s on the agenda for Labor? Throughout the document, Labor mentions “gender” a staggering 138 times, compared to just 25 mentions of “poverty”.
The term “sexual orientation” is mentioned 64 times; “intersex” 59 times; “identity” 42 times; “transgender” 36 times; “bisexual” 33 times; “lesbian” 31 times; “diversity” 27 times; “gender identity” 19 times; and the “gender pay gap” 5 times.
.@PMOnAir on Labor’s national conference blueprint: Despite what they said today, this is the draft document, this is the beginning of the absolute centrepiece of what the next government will be about.

Key word tally from the draft National Platform for the forthcoming ALP National Conference.
Poverty has 25 mentions, an after-thought compared to divisive identity politics. pic.twitter.com/6hYJFWd6HZ

We will regret allowing the de-gendering of marriage. The ?️? political movement has infiltrated both sides of politics to the point where pushing back will require enormous courage & resolve. https://t.co/3rP22bKjVH

Column’s up: wait till you see what a Shorten government has in store for you. Gender erased on birth certificates for one. Their sinister identity politics agenda is laid bare in the ALP policy platform just released for their national conference. https://t.co/dH5iAw1tqz pic.twitter.com/lIk7xeVZwz
