58 federal laws....

I think I'm going to have another one of those days today where I can't quite get motivated to work very hard for the gummint...

The 58 federal laws in Appendix 1 discriminate against same-sex couples in the area of financial and work-related entitlements. Those laws breach the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Yeah, I reckon I'll take it real easy today. That'll really make 'em think twice about persistent breaches of basic human rights.

All persons are equal before the law and
are entitled without any discrimination
to the equal protection of the law. In
this respect, the law shall prohibit any
discrimination and guarantee to all persons
equal and effective protection against
discrimination on any ground...

Article 26, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
