Whilst time is almost up its worth bringing attention to the Australian National Human Rights Community Consultation which has opened a public comment blog here http://www.openforum.com.au/NHROC I'm already bringing up sub culture issues with the host I'm advocating for and every extra voice counts

Dang, that's sad...
I used to be teased for being "emo" all the time at school. I think bullying is horrible.

You'll be outraged to hear an Australian state government has made a 'viral' online add thats anti-Emo!

Seriously!

Using peoples anti-emo prejudice to drive an ad against using a mobile phone while driving! Theres one about red-haired people too.
