This is an insane level of government micromanaging and I'm pretty sure it's one of those laws that will NEVER actually be enforced, so it's pointless for it to even exist in the exist in the first place.
Exactly. It turns my stomach seeing the wonderful and unique Australia becoming something of a nanny state. They've always been known as a rough-and-tumble, can-do place - like Alaska - where men are still allowed to be manly and women don't want to be men. A country known for it's common sense and ability to be self-sufficient and tough. Sad to see it change.
