Australians Are Voting On Same-sex Marriage — And It`s Getting Ugly

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has stuck to his campaign promise to put same-sex marriage to a vote.
Australians have until November 7 to complete a mail-in survey on whether or not the 1961 Marriage Act should be amended to include same-sex couples.
The ballot has a single question: "Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?" with the options "Yes" or "No".
As people are getting their ballots in the mail, the Australian public has become divided, and things have started to turn ugly.
Over the weekend, both the "No" and "Yes" campaigns ramped up across the country, holding rallies, knocking on doors, and sending text messages to gain supporters.
Thousands participated in the annual Pride Rally in Brisbane, and were met by a small group of protesters who chanted "repent for your sins."
Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, was head-butted in Tasmania last week by a man who was wearing a "Vote yes" button.
"There`s not much love coming from the `yes` quarters towards people who have the temerity to disagree," Abbott said after the incident, according to The New York Times.
The man later told The Guardian it had nothing to do with same-sex marriage, just his extreme hatred of Abbott.
Many Australians shared their opinions on social media when a plane wrote "Vote no" across the sky in Sydney Harbor last week:
