Skip to comments.Fewer men than women support gay marriage: poll (Australia)
Posted on 08/06/2012 10:04:29 AM PDT by scottjewell
A NEW opinion poll suggests almost two-thirds of Australians support same-sex marriage but there's a clear gender divide with men generally less keen on the idea than women.
The survey, released on Monday, comes just days after the Tasmanian government announced plans to legalise gay marriage.
The Galaxy poll shows 64 per cent of people believe same-sex couples should be allowed to marry - up two percentage points from February.
But only 58 per cent of men back changing the law compared with 70 per cent of women.
The poll was commissioned by lobby group Australian Marriage Equality.

Damn Yaoi fangirls.
You are right. It tells you everything about these people’s attitude toward marriage. It is not a serious thing for them, just an agenda item.
Yeah, an agenda item, and another reason to camp it up.
It would be very interesting to parse that poll.
That is, ask women first about female-female marriage then male-male marriage; then ask men the same question. I bet some of the results would be very interesting indeed.
It might go further by asking if they would like to watch women having sex with women, or men having sex with men.
I’m sorry to say it, but this result is why Churchill didn’t believe women should vote.
I didn’t want to admit it, but I was thinking the exact same thing...
Yes, might see some different results.
Female thinking can be poisonous at times.
