COM­MENT

The Northern Advocate - - My Word - Jonny Wikin­son

An ex­am­ple is the “slut march” in the #MeToo move­ment and, hey, Crips in Cars has an out­ra­geously cool ring to it.

The episode I re­ally like is Buck­wheat and Don McKen­zie. Buck­wheat is a mas­sively gre­gar­i­ous drag queen and Don McKen­zie is a petite phys­io­ther­a­pist who is blind.

What I re­ally liked about this episode was the wind was taken out of Buck­wheat’s flam­boy­ant sail, away along with the vis­ual im­pact of his ca­co­phonic stage out­fit, with Don’s lack of vi­sion. Wow! Talk about a lev­eller.

Both char­ac­ters were ab­so­lutely charm­ing with Buck­wheat in­sist­ing on Don giv­ing him a ki­netic screen­ing to make sure Don fully un­der­stood how out­ra­geously cool he looked.

No mat­ter what make the car is, no mat­ter how out­ra­geous you are, it doesn’t even mat­ter if you’re in the driv­ing seat or not. It’s cool to be cool. Jonny Wilkin­son is the CEO of Ti­aho Trust — Dis­abil­ity A Mat­ter of Per­cep­tion, a Whanga¯rei-based ad­vo­cacy or­gan­i­sa­tion
