Great Aussies....

Hugh Jackman has questioned why Americans are so fascinated with his sexuality and Australians are not.

The Wolverine star and reigning Sexiest Man Alive has repeatedly denied he is gay and in a new US interview with Parade magazine again confirmed he is heterosexual.

"The questions about sexuality I find more here in America than anywhere else, because it's a big hang-up and defines what people think about themselves and others," the Australian actor told Parade.
"It's not a big issue in Australia."

Oh please…like Hugh is gay and he is right – in Australia we don’t care about crap like this and we feel no need to drag someone down by labelling them something dumb like this. Hugh Jackman is about as gay as I am a natural blonde….get a grip people – are you mad? I think people who try to ‘out’ others need to look at their own sexuality and ask why they do it…

Okay….now on a deadly series note – Anzac Day – April 25th

This is a sacred day in Australia and in New Zealand – ANZAC – Australian New Zealand Army Corp. The day originates from the landings at Gallipoli on the same day in 1915. The English wanker officer hierarchy of the time basically set the colonials - the Aussies and the Kiwis - an impossible task - land at a beach – run like buggery through a hail of bullets raining down on them from above and to try take a piece of land that belonged to the Turks. It was horrific and disastrous and so many young men lost their lives – on both sides - due to an ill-thought out plan by people who had received their officer commissions because they were part of the then English aristocracy, could buy a commission or old buggers that should had retired years ago. My great Uncle Sinclair was at Gallipoli in WW1 He survived but later died in Flanders. War – what a frigging waste. Les Carlyon’s book “Gallipoli” is an excellent read and it pulls no punches.

We honour Anzac day because it’ a true test of Australian and New Zealand courage and mateship - and mateship is everything to an Aussie. We commemorate the day not only for the Anzacs but all Aussie and Kiwi soldiers who have died in war, those who served in wars and the men and women in the defence forces now, all over the world, who are fighting for freedom. Where would be without the courage of these people?
