ANGRY! The census this year will not allow same sex parents to select 'mother & mother' option when filling out the form in respect to their child or children.
Apparently the ABS encourages one mother to select the father option as the only way to include information from both parents. This is disgusting in this day and age. I think this warrants a reason to argue about not filling it out!
It's purpose is to learn about shaping Australia's future and to learn about current families, how will this information be accurate if we are forced to lie on the form? I'm lying by saying my child's other parent is the father! So shouldn't I be penalised as I am providing misleading information!?
