"The trampling of justice and decency in the pursuit of national aggrandisement and reckless indifference to human life should have no place in our world."

Tony Abbott on MH17

Pot, meet kettle.

"Consequently, under contemporary circumstances, the urban can no longer be viewed as a distinct, relatively bounded site; it has
instead become a generalized, planetary condition in and through which the accumulation of capital, the regulation of political-economic life, the reproduction of everyday social relations and the contestation of the earth and humanity’s possible futures are simultaneously organized and fought out."
'What is Critical Urban Theory' - Neil Brenner (2009)

When straight men are like “but if I share a locker room with a gay guy he might look at me!”

Okay leaving aside the fact that gay doesn’t mean attracted to you

And gay doesn’t mean “lacking in any sort of human decency or inability to prevent staring”

DOES THE THOUGHT OF SOMEONE LOOKING AT YOU IN A SEXUAL WAY, EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE NOT TRYING TO BE SEXUAL, MAKE YOU SLIGHTLY UNCOMFORTABLE MY STRAIGHT MALE FRIEND?

DOES IT

DOES

"You know, I have a culture. I am a cultured person. (Speaking Alyawerr) Iylpmwa arrpenharl-then angkem. Iylpmwa atyengenh iteth-antey (Translated: I’m talking another language. And my language is alive). I am not something that fell out of the sky for the pleasure of somebody putting another culture into this cultured being. John shows what is an ongoing denial of me. I am not an Aboriginal or, indeed, Indigenous. I am Arrernte, Alyawarre, First Nations person, a sovereign person from this country. (Speaking Alyawerr) Apmer nhenheng-ntyelarl ayeng arratek (Translated: This is the country I came out from). I didn’t come from overseas. I came from here. My language, in spite of whiteness trying to penetrate into my brain by assimilationists - I am alive, I am here and now - and I speak my language. I practise my cultural essence of me. Don’t try and suppress me and don’t call me a problem. I am not the problem. I have never left my country nor have I ceded any part of it. Nobody has entered into a treaty or talked to me about who I am. I am Arrernte Alyawarre female elder from this country. Please remember that. I am not the problem."

Everyone pay attention to Andrew Bolt, quickly! He’s suffering attention deprivation syndrome without Labor in government/enough aboriginal people to say provocative, inflammatory things about.
