No country for (grumpy) old men

1 Comment



In the Fiona Katauskas cartoon, two talkback radio hosts complain that woke warriors will make Australia into a place where climate change is taken seriously, where gay and trans people are treated like regular human beings, where people are called out for racism and sexual assault. 'Imagine a place like that' they say, 'sounds like hell on Earth.'



Fiona KatauskasFiona Katauskas' work has also appeared in ABC's The Drum, New Matilda, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Australian, The Financial Review and Scribe's Best Australian political cartoon anthologies.

There are six visible boxes. Intersectionality is the multiplicity of the (for-now) invisible boxes consisting of: boxes located within the major boxes; boxes connecting the major boxes; and as psychology and sociology become more surgical, boxes within the derivative boxes themselves. If we number the boxes consecutively from top left to bottom right, Box 4 contains another box for not pinching a bum but for saying something that is equivalent to pinching a bum, and Box 5 contains another box for a grumpy old man who isn’t white, the Foundational Measure for Bad = A Colour seeming to be ‘white’ (similarly to the happenstance that the Standard Measure of a second of time is what something called caesium is doing and the Standard Measure of the length of a metre is a rod in Paris, which, not so coincidentally no doubt, is overrun by white folks.). So, call this interconnecting box between Boxes 4 and 5 Box 4a-5a and you have Mick Dodson as a concept to be studied by phenomenologists.
