No, this is nothing to do with blackface. Nor is it intended to shame anyone for their sexual habits, or even comment on sex as anything but a metaphor.
Yesterday I had a fun random inspiration that I thought I would share with you.
It’s difficult to be certain of anything thanks to false information and the echo chamber / social media bubble effect. But the following three points seem fairly clear:
- A lot of regular people want human civilisation to continue into the next century.
- A lot of scientists seem to think it’s not going to happen unless we dramatically reduce our carbon emissions.
- A lot of the politicians and industrial leaders responsible for making this happen aren’t going to do it.
To cut a long story both short and graphic, too many of our so-called leaders would rather give the fossil fuel industry another blowjob than save our fucking species. And, you know, all the species that we eat and / or think are cute.
So I came up with a quick and easy way to shame those leaders. It probably won’t achieve much, but I already have solar panels on my house, fruit trees in my garden and I recycle, so short of becoming a corporate billionaire or dictator of an irresponsibly industrialised nation, I think I’m just about tapped.
Whenever you find a likely photo of a politician or CEO who just loves them some coal fellatio, just put it in Photoshop or applicable program, throw down some black paintbrushing at about 65% opacity, and call it good. I was fancy, and made a new layer so I could delete smudges, but you don’t have to.
Here’s s few I rattled off in my lunch break, featuring Australia’s beloved “Scotty from Marketing.”
