An artwork portraying a confronting act is among the pieces that have been shortlisted for the Australian War Memorial's 2024 Napier Waller Prize, which has a history of tackling a broad range of issues faced by past and present Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel.

The work, titled The Impossible sit-up challenge, explores what artist Steven Bostock describes as the "blurry line of camaraderie and the abuse culture, which exist in the army".

The picture, which can be viewed on the war memorial's website, shows five soldiers participating in a "prank" in 2007.

It features a blindfolded soldier lying on the ground while a naked comrade squats over him.

The Australian War Memorial's head of art Laura Webster said the picture had been shortlisted based on artistic merit and the subject matter.

"The artist has shown quite interesting illustrative talent. It's a particular perspective of his service, which was important for him and possibly for many others,'' she said.

You can vote for it in the People's Choice Award (and see it uncensored): https://www.awm.gov.au/napier-waller-art-prize-hub/2024-napier-waller-art-prize/37683

        Neither. It's just a body. Unless someone is getting their rocks off hard no-one is gay by having this kind of fun.

        Russian anal rape is entirely different styles, because someone has to get hard, be penetrated, and then one or two usually cums.

      No the army is very anti gay. Can’t have any meat gazers in the showers obviously. The only way to prove this is to engage in the totally sarcastic “man love thursday” rituals where you show your wiener and balls in The Game from Waiting, fondle one another to make sure the other dudes don’t get hard while you’re handling their junk, and occasionally jerk off in line for the showers to catch anyone looking down below the shoulder line.

      Yes, it's a big taboo. Lots if them don't even like to speak about the dead directly

        The taboo is only really a thing with the northern tribes around Arnhemland and the gulf, but the channels have to put up the warning so as to avoid triggering larpers in Sydney/Melbourne who pick random Abo shit from across the country for their larp. A disturbing amount people have the idea that every single Aboriginal from the Torres Strait to Tasmania shared the same culture and customs, not realising that with that much distance involved that there was a shitload of differences. For example some Abo’s in central Queensland (I think) split their dick heads in half with pieces of flint, I don’t know how they avoided bleeding to death or infection.

            You are correct Anon, Arnhemland was first discovered by a Dutchman who named it after the original city. A lot of coastal Australia including Tasmania was discovered by the Dutch, they just didn’t settle since just about everywhere they discovered was either desolate wasteland, cold mountainous wasteland or just marshy wasteland with Crocodilian characteristics. Wasn’t until the British and the French discovered the much nicer east coast that any permanent European habitation began.

    There were very few women in the first 100 years of the Australian penal colonies. The British actually sent ships of convicted prostitutes and women convicted of minor crimes life theft. Being a homosexual was something that's far more part of Australian male culture than elsewhere because of this, especially in the Austrian army and prisons. Basically the larger male Australian men like to have sex with the not so large ones and call it a prank but get very offended if you call them homos. Its the same as the Russians. When they were hunting down and killing the aboriginals its interesting to note there we just as many rapes of aboriginal men as women before executions took place. Australia still runs on legalized prostitution like nevada.

      At least Australians don't deny their history and culture is based on prisoners.

      >split their dick heads in half with pieces of flint.
      also 'old based russian prison tradition, globohomosexual would never understand'. There are whole books on that stuff with even more fricked up 'operations' with less tools and experience
      >how they avoided bleeding to death or infection.
      I assume basic hygiene like cleaning 'tool' with fire, herbal medicine and bandages, immune system of generations getting trough this shit, luck, survivor's mistake, denial of failures.
