Why Telstra is publishing Pickering’s disgusting porn?

I am a Telstra customer.  Partly because I have stayed with them as a ‘Government’ organisation when Optus came on the scene (when they were government) and partly because of convenience as they bundle all my bills in one go and Optus when I asked a few years ago didn’t.  The service is fine I have no complaints on that score.

What I do have a complain is their pushing of pro-Liberal propaganda on their site. This is due I think by the fact that the news feed comes from News Ltd. and of course we all know that they are a megaphone for the Coalition.  I decided to change my home page to the soccer page so to avoid the pro-Abbott headlines.

But there was another thing that just caught my attention. That the Bigpond site has started to put cartoons from Larry Pickering.  Pickering was a leading cartoonist in the 70’s.  He was also a bit of a celebrity appearing on TV on shows like ‘The Don Lane Show’ and so on.

He sort of disappeared but he re-emerged recently with a scurrilous anti ALP, and especially anti Gillard facebook page, raising irrelevant aspects of her life because (shock horror) she was in a relationship in her 20s with a Union figure.

Mr. Pickering is of course entitled to his views.  He can also be offensive (as long as staying within the law) and have a mutually onanistic exchange with his Gillard hating coterie on facebook, but when this strays on the public domain then it is a different story.

Now, have a  look at Larry Pickering’s Twitter profile image (careful when you open it, it is certainly not suitable for work) where he manages to be misogynist, sexist and homophobic all at once.  What he drew in that picture is Gillard wearing a dildo.  Let’s leave it as that.  While we can avoid that in our twitter let’s look at the following cartoons which have been published in the ‘Bigpond’ website:

Have you noticed what she’s wearing around her shoulders in the first cartoon? Or what type of ‘baton’ we can see in the second? Or what type of item she is carrying in her bag in the third one?  Yep, I reckon is the infamous ‘dildo’.
Personally, as a Telstra customer I hope that none of my money goes to feed Mr.Pickering’s squalid misogynist titillation of himself and his sad angry miserable followers.  And even if this is not the case I object that my internet provider shows this obnoxious stuff.

Please take it off Telstra, and leave it to the angry white men.
