Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Mind Your Language

The other day someone called me a sheeple. I was offended. Not personally, but on behalf of sheep. It’s a term meant to denigrate my agency by suggesting I have herd stupidity. Sheep are incredible, and surprising beings. Before you start denigrating sheep, you should know they are emotionally complex animals who can self-medicate!

I refer to the current debate about nude bathing on Tyagarah Beach. It’s a very long beach. Is it possible for Byron Shire Council to gazette a ‘Masturbators Only’ zone?

Problem solved!

  1. David Hancock your request is nothing but ridiculous and illegal.
    Ask police if they’d allow sexual activity on the beach gazetted or otherwise.
    It has been proven before magistrates recently that ‘Being Nude does not constitute offensive behaviour’.
    What your referring to in having a masturbators zone gazetted is obscene and lewd and constitutes Sexual Assault and Offensive Behaviour.

    If you can’t keep your hand off it in public, maybe Psychiatric help is needed.

  2. I think David was simply asking a question about Council’s powers under the LGA to gazette an area for a specific purpose. I believer the Act gives Council some power to can designate places for specific activities and purposes.

    However, It was possibly somewhat excessive in your closing remark, Debbie, to imply that David has a problem that might require psychiatric help.
