"Modern Australians of global origins who are proud of where they came from and proud of who they are. Modern Australians. Yet, some of these designers are ignored by the Australian fashion industry, and what’s worse, some Indigenous Australian designers are not even acknowledged. It is disappointing that Australian Indigenous Fashion Week was a separate event from Australian Fashion Week."

The despicable practice of trophy hunting has unique social practices that sanitise the language and images of animals killed for sport.

Ulrich Seidl, the director of "Safari," a film that documents this says the language used by trophy hunters "'create[s] this certain emotional distance between the act of hunting and the animals.' 'Piece' becomes a byword for animal; 'sweat' for blood. Blood, Seidl says, is of particular significance: 'They remove the blood from the photos so no one can see ... It's an indication for me that blood is very much a taboo in our society.'"

This is not the best way to deal with an ageing population. Barcodes and similar types of identification have been exploited throughout history. "A company in Iruma, north of Tokyo, developed tiny nail stickers, each of which carries a unique identity number to help concerned families find missing loved ones, according to the city's social welfare office."

"The problem of unsafe plastic surgeries also has not been taken seriously because Colombian society divides victims into 'good' and 'bad.' It has a serious lack of empathy with the victims of unsafe cosmetic surgeries... The surgeries that society rejects are those that have to do with women's sexualisation. And in Colombia, for women, there is only one thing worse than being a sexual object: not being one."

"Marginalised people often do not have the luxury of emotionally distancing themselves from discussions on their rights and experiences... Tone policing assumes that the oppressive act is not an act of aggression, when it very much is. The person who was oppressed by the action, suddenly is no longer a victim, but is “victimising” the other person by calling them out."
