Remember That Blue Dress/White Dress Controversy a Few Years Back? Well Look Again

I just watched 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' today for the first time and had a brainstorm...or sandstorm of the brain and came up with this -
The Wild Ride of Fiona Johnson in this Earthly Matrix?
The woman in the red dress scene was filmed in Sydney
Female traffic light signals to go up at pedestrian crossing as Committee for Melbourne tackles 'unconscious bias'
"Pedestrian traffic lights depicting female figures will be installed in Melbourne's CBD today as a part of a lobby group's push for gender equality.
Ten female pedestrian figures will be installed on traffic lights at the intersection of Swanston and Flinders streets as part of a VicRoads-approved 12-month trial.
The Committee for Melbourne — a non-profit organisation comprising more than 120 Melbourne business and community groups — is behind the move.
Chief executive Martine Letts said having only green or red silhouettes of men discriminated against women.
"The idea is to install traffic lights with female representation, as well as male representation, to help reduce unconscious bias," she said.
Ms Letts said the group wanted to see female and male representation on all pedestrian crossings."

Is that a gun in that red man's pocket, or is he looking at the woman in the red dress?-)
