Would you think it funny if someone put "In the gas chamber" as their location? Or "Picking cotton in the cotton field"? You seem to be woefully out of touch with reality as if anyone that disapproves of your "joke" is somehow a pro-China, pro-concentration camp shill.

Work is not a place to discuss or joke about religion, politics, gender/ sex, violence. This has nothing to do with the culture being open or not or with whether such jokes are generally ok or not.

You told your employer (via your boss) that you may be resigning in a few (eight) months. Your decision to resign depends on you passing (or not) the exam. In the meantime, you would like to enjoy the benefits of a full-time position. Since you are studying for the IELTS, as you said, you're probably familiar with the saying: "You can't have your cake and ...

In the comments you mention that you either become permanent or your contract will end. That leaves you with three options: Choose between your job and school in Australia Lie. Tell them you've given up on Australia and then stop talking about Australia around coworkers. If you get accepted, then you can choose Australia, but this will probably burn ...
