Dear @JuliaGillard, please do something about those Dugongs. Sincerely, a concerned citizen. #ThinkoftheJoeysless than a minute ago via HootSuite

It was a simple request, and yet it stirred such controversy! I had no idea that Dugong enthusiasts could be so vocal.

I think that the most hurtful part of the whole exchange was when I was accused of racism. I have tonnes of non-macropod friends. How many must I produce before people stop calling me a racist?

Look, I don’t hate Dugongs. I just want them to leave the country and never come back.
