Someone tried to kick this dog because it was wearing a marriage equality scarf
A homophobe in Australia tried to kick a dog, because its owner had dressed it in a marriage equality bandana.
Claire Sutherland, the acting editor of RendezView, tweeted a picture of her dog Mack with the caption “So some mouth-breathing cretin in the park tried to kick my dog while shouting homophobic slurs. Australia you have truly shat the bed.”

Sutherland wrote a piece for the Herald Sun describing the incident.
She said that she didn’t usually put clothes on dogs, but that Mack hadn’t seemed to mind this one, since he “seems to have upped his pat count on walks since donning it.”
Mack was being walked by their sitter in a park in Yarraville, Melbourne, when he ran past a man who saw the scarf, and aimed a kick at him.
Thankfully he missed, so Mack wasn’t hurt.
Sutherland said the man then began verbally abusing their sitter.
