Outspoken conservative Queensland MP Bob Katter has again dumbfounded the Australian public with a bizarre suggestion that legalising gay-marriage will somehow result in teenage boys being forced to wear dresses to school.
Speaking in the Australian House of Representatives during the debate on passing a bill to legalise same-sex marriage, Mr Katter said: "Now if you want to throw a young lad between the ages of nine or 10 and the age of 15, and make him go to school wearing a dress, you seriously mess with his head."
The comments from Mr Katter come just weeks after he highlighted the frequency which Queenslanders are eaten by crocodiles as the reason he did not have time to worry about the legalisation of same-sex marriage in Australia - which he opposes.
"I mean, you know, people are entitled to their sexual proclivities. Let there be a thousand blossoms bloom, as far as I am concerned," Mr Katter said at a press conference last month.
"But I ain't spending any time on it because in the meantime, every three months, a person is torn to pieces by a crocodile in north Queensland."
The clip of Mr Katter on ABC's Insider show quickly went viral online.
Mr Katter has long campaigned for a crocodile cull in northern Queensland, to no avail.
