A sketch show made a hilarious parody of a homophobic TV ad

Australia is currently in the middle of a national, non-binding referendum on marriage equality.

Pansy Lai, who is featured in the ad saying that schools will make dresses for boys “compulsory,” leads an organization that advocates conversion therapy.
