Australia has a reputation as one of the world's most gay-friendly countries - unless you're learning about an indigenous bird perched on a gum tree.

A school in Victoria has created controversy by banning the word gay from the classic Aussie song Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree.

Students at Cheltenham's Lepage Primary have instead been told to sing the line, "Fun your life must be".

This is the same song that got Men At Work sued, right?

Could that song possibly stay out of the news for a month or two? Smile

Deucey Deucey Deucey.. All primary kids knows both meanings of gay.. And are you suggesting that they change the word gay in the song to homo?? Or that the kids should just use the word homo when they want to attack someones sexuality??...
