An Australian politician has called for heterosexual people to have their own flag, parade and international day.
One Nation NSW MP Mark Latham took to Twitter with the bizarre proposal to keep the straight "species alive".
He wrote: "We love the gays but it’s overdue to recognise the Heteros with our own flag, parade, International Day, UN envoys, special footy round and jersey and Welcome To Bed ceremonies.
"Keeping our species alive!!"
The post was accompanied with an image of a man and woman hugging and the text: "Heterosexuals, preventing human extinction for the last two decades."
Inevitably, his tweet caused quite a stir and was soon inundated with responses criticising Latham's post.
"Not sure anyone should celebrate you procreating," one wrote, while another added: "Well, go on then. You organise a flag, a day, and a parade and see how many people turn up. No one is stopping you, and if there was enough interest surely it would already be a thing. Like International Men’s Day that no one actually celebrates."
