Australians will find a new political party on the ballot next time there's a vote. The Australian Sex Party has officially registered as a political party. Its mission is to further an open and positive discussion about sexual topics like censorship, education, health, and discrimination. The party wants to offer an alternative to "morals campaigners and prudish politicians," and you can follow its activism on Twitter.
The creators of the Australian Sex Party say that the fact that it took a while for election officials to decide whether or not to allow the word "sex" in the name of a political party proves that the party is necessary. Fiona Patten, a creator and likely future candidate, explains:
"One of the reasons for establishing the party was to provide a positive platform for sexual issues amongst the negative notions of sex that most politicians and political parties have."
Does this idea get your vote?
