Like A Monkey Sketch
Whilst getting an ECG test in 2017, I was likened to a monkey by the nurse carrying out the procedure. As one would expect, I was taken aback.
In response to this notion of subtle or not so subtle prejudice; I seek to take ownership of an insulted that I have experienced on multiple occasions as a young ethnic male. By assuming the animalistic pose of a monkey holding a banana, which also acts as motif of masculinity with the clear phallic symbolism, I attempt to use humorous rhetoric to display my experience.
