Look, it's never been okay to expose yourself to an unwilling audience.
But amid revelations of sexual harassment by likes of Harvey Weinstein and Louis C.K., it's a worse time than ever for would-be exposers or harassers.
Not that it fazed Australian musician Kirin J. Callinan, who has been criticised for his brand of "ironic" toxic masculinity. At the ARIA Awards (Australia's answer to the Grammys) on Tuesday, Callinan lifted up his kilt and exposed his penis on the red carpet.?
According to News Corp, Callinan "stood proudly for a solid moment to make sure it was seen and captured."?
We're obviously not going to show the image, because obviously no one wants to see your dick.
was kirin j callinan removed from the arias after what he did bc subjecting everyone to his penis is really not okay and shouldn't be seen any other way

Big morning for Kirin J Callinan. He's going to wake up from a coke bender to see Australia hates his music AND his dick

For those unfamiliar with Callinan (and fair enough), he's a Sydney musician who released his latest experimental pop album, Bravado, in June 2017. ?
His EDM-country song "Big Enough" from the album was featured recently in Jimmy Fallon's infamous "Do Not Play" segment on The Tonight Show.
Or you can forget about him again, whatever.
This isn't the first time this has happened at the ARIAs. Australian actor Axle Whitehead (who briefly appeared in the U.S. version of Shameless, among other things) was fired from his presenting job in 2006 after exposing himself on stage at the awards ceremony.
A quick heads up, indecent exposure in the state of New South Wales is a crime, carrying a maximum fine of $660.?
When will men learn, you may ask? The answer seems to be never.
