Lord and savoury relish. Anyone viewed that peculiar Invasion Day propagandist ad on the telly? They're selling its observance like taxes: a regrettably legal responsibility for the common good.
Here, for your consideration, is the miserable campaign to endure the national day.
As is case with most "content", the piece o' shit is more interesting for the assumptions it contains than its imagined capacity to harm or help "the public".
It's like they're asking me to save fat for the war effort or report suspicious activity or something.
It is Your Duty to have a fucken barbecue.
In addition to urging your participation in those Jan 26 events created by Indigenous collectives, I would suggest restraint in discussion of the fucken lamb ad. Notwithstanding the recent widespread death of lambs as barbecue stock, the whole exercise is a fucken waste.
This discussion of cultural goods for their moral value is just so ruling class. A whole load of snobs talking about whether "The Poor" or "The Undereducated" will be Improved by a message that these snobs, obviously, don't need.
Fuck off.
In addition to the hideous writing and awful discussion about Good Ads by dills on The Drum, this discussion obscures that of the point itself, which is instrumental racism, surely.
I do not care to learn that Van Badham etc endorses the diversity message of a lamb ad. Or a tampon ad for its Cinéma vérité menstral blood.
The revolution will not be advertised. And "social change" does not take place because someone whacks a gay bloke in a bank ad.
Further to the "de-stigmatising" menstrual blood ad thing:
It didn't have chunks.
I am 51 with low flow and I still have chunks.
I have, at the request of partners & pals, viewed the chunks of others.
The chunk struggle is real.
But. Chunks are disgusting and I don't want to see them on telly.
I view this abject material in the privacy of my own pants or those of others. I first submitted my own chunks to lay diagnosis some forty years ago when Mum asked, sensibly, for a look. I have done so since.
Menstrual blood in a campaign for rags is as Socially Useful as a turd in ad for loo roll.
Arguably, one's turds are more crucial to view and assss.
In sum, there is some human muck so abject its proper place is usually in its owners dacks.
I am in enthusiastic favour of children exploring the Bristol Stool Chart and so forth at school.
In fact. Now I think about it. Illustrated criteria for chunks, jizz and especially earwax must be made available to all citizens of the bourgeois settler state. Immediately.
Anyhow. Ads on the telly
They sell goods. Not good messages.
We see messages already acceptable to corporate and state media. The unacceptable message is minimised or expunged.
Julian Assange and @xychelsea showed us unacceptably real blood. I hear they're doing time.
Thank you for attending my TED turd. All pre-purchased Menstrual Chunks may now be collected at the desk.
Thanks to Lockheed Martin or General Atomics or someone for their support
We are Empowering Women together, chunk by chunk! And by fatal drone attack! Of countless women! Image
I must add:
Stop Killing Women*

*Western Feminist offer only. Exclusions apply, notably the countless women murdered in Muslim majority nations by the thousands per minute for more than thirty years.
