Curt Livingston, I eat souls [Tony Abbott] (2010).
tony abbott makes me feel a little ill
he looks like a shark. he says stupid things.
sick in my stomach. striking, but so shameless and exploitative. and condescending (but in the bad way). I hate this happening.
loving this. particularly the bit where Abbott comes wading out of the ocean. smarmy git.
I should try and stop swearing when I get upset.
Australia has always had difficulty adapting to immigrants. an introduction of alien culture will naturally disturb the status quo. but why should this be considered a bad thing? Australian society has changed immensely over the last fifty-five years. Aboriginal people are considered the full citizens that they are. women are socially accepted in the workplace. gay people are on the verge of having marriage rights.
if reaching out to immigrants to try and make them feel more welcome marks a change in the behaviour of Australian society - whether by incorporating their food into school canteen menus, or translating the national anthem - I think that it is a wonderful change.
chain emailers? fuck. them. fucking haters.
