Dad Of Gay Son Hacks Wife's Facebook Account To Blast Anti-Gay Politician
71-year-old Australian Dad Of The Year Peter Roberts doesn't have a Facebook account. But he didn't let that stop him when he was moved to call out an anti-gay politician via social media. To do that, he "hacked into" his wife's Facebook account and went to town putting Conservative MP George Christensen on blast.
Christensen made waves when he railed against a ruling that lowered the age of consent for anal sex to 16 years.
“So the State Labor government just made it legal for 50 year old men to have se with 16 year old boys," Christensen wrote on Facebook. "Where are the State Government’s priorities at? And do we really want 16 year old boys being preyed upon and groomed by much older men for what is now legal sex?”
Roberts was so incensed he logged into his wife's account to respond to the homophobic legislator, writing:
A few Anzac years ago you bought me a beer, as a 20 plus veteran with two tours of Vietnam. if you did it now I would tip the bloody thing over your head. The typical homophobic, they must be pedophiles. So it is alright for old men like me to try and find a younger women but not a Gay man. I have a GAY SON who I am so proud of what he has achieved in his life. His condition, or what you want to call it, came from my Fathers ancestor,y so I have passed it on to him. he should have the same rights as I have to Marry, to adopt if he and his partner wants to and not have clowns like you who live in the past helping to run this country and make decision for us and him. If you decide to come to the Reef Gateway Hotel at Cannonvale for an Anzac Day please ask for me. 18201 Warrant Officer Second Class Peter Roberts. I have hacked my wifes facebook for this as she probably would be harsher.
Dale -- the proud son referenced in Roberts' reply -- beamed to BuzzFeed, saying, “Dad is by no means public with his politics. And definitely not on social media. He’s 71 and doesn’t have his own account. He’s very quietly supportive of me (he met my partner for first time recently at mum and dad’s 40th wedding anniversary), I think he’s just frustrated that we don’t have the same rights and opportunities he does.”
Well done, dad!
