The Funniest Tweets About The Marriage Equality Victory

Yesterday’s marriage equality victory was a huuuge win for Australia, even though the process of getting here was a mega shit-show. But at least it’s given us some funny tweets.

After being forced to endure such a supremely ridiculous ordeal, the country is in a mixed up state of excitement, hurt and healing. Especially the LGBTIQ+ community who have been dragged through hell over the last few months.

So in the face of such ridiculousness, some people are doing what Aussies do best: taking the piss. Sometimes having a good laugh can be a nice, cathartic way to deal with such intense fuckery and the whole ‘political process’ is pretty damn easy to make fun of so here we are.

It’s been a rough time for a lot of people and the struggle for equality isn’t over, but if you’re a cope-through-laughter kind of person, please enjoy all the most hilarious reaction tweets to the Australia’s great marriage equality ordeal of 2017.

Let’s kick things off with a gentle roasting of the ABS announcer.
