Water Less ‘Made in USA’ Selvedge Denim Collection

Levi's Water Less 'Made in USA' Selvedge Denim Collection

Levi’s is using a new process which significantly reduces the amount of water used in the production of their jeans. They’re calling it the Water<Less Collection. “The average pair of jeans uses 42 litres of water in the finishing process. The Water<Less collection reduces the water consumption by an average of 28% and up to 96% for some new products in the line.” It’s a fitting change in production and fabrication. To celebrate the Water<Less method, Levi’s is also launching a limited line of “made in the U.S.A.” selvedge jeans and trucker jackets. The original 501, 505, and 511 models are available in “authentic” Water<Less finishes.

Safe Schools Act NOW!

by Accidental Bear

 

Having a public school teacher for a partner drives the point home that OUR schools need to be safe for the students and the teachers. No, more bullying, no more school shooting. I shouldn’t have to worry the same way partners of men and women off at war do. Are we at war in a our public schools?

The Safe Schools Improvement Act, aimed at addressing bullying and harassment based on sexual orientation or gender identity, was reintroduced in the U.S. Senate Tuesday.

Bob Casey, a Pennsylvania Democrat, and Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican, are lead sponsors of the bill, marking the first time legislation on the issue has been introduced with bipartisan support, notes the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network. Casey sponsored the legislation in the previous session of Congress, but it failed to get out of committee. Within a few weeks, Rep. Linda Sanchez of California is expected to introduce a companion bill in the House, as she did in the previous session.

The act would require schools and districts receiving federal funds to adopt codes of conduct specifically prohibiting bullying and harassment, including on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It would also require schools to report data on bullying and harassment to the Department of Education, and the department to report this to Congress.

Casey released a statement saying the act will “help ensure that every child receives a quality education that builds self-confidence. This bill is a crucial step towards ensuring that no child is so afraid to go to school that he or she stays home for fear of bullying.”

“Pray the Gay Away?” Tuesday at 10/9c

by Accidental Bear

ONE WORD, THERAPY

How much poor representation of homosexuals can one world take? It makes me sick that Lisa Ling goes along with him pretending that he wants to be straight for a second. Who is he convincing? Poor thing, you need therapy and to drop this thing called ” god” then you can start some real healing and acceptance of who you are. As for now I will diagnose you; Homophobic Homosexual

Thank You Henry Rollins for being Body Guard for Gays

by Accidental Bear

Henry Rollins first caught my attention in 1989 when I some home open for Janes Addiction. He bounced around shirtless  in black gym shorts scream/singing. At that point I had no idea he’d be fighting for my rights.

Henry Rollins Blasts Boehner On DOMA Defense

Rollins_HenryFormer Black Flag frontman turned actor Henry Rollins has consistently used his influence and position to push progressive politics, particularly when it comes to LGBT rights.

You can be sure, then, that he’s pretty pissed about House Speaker John Boehner’s decision to defend DOMA in Congress.

And Rollins is venting that anger over at Vanity Fair:

[Obama] says his administration will no longer defend DOMA in court. Being happy about that would be like rejoicing that doctors are no longer applying leeches to patient’s faces when they complain of nasal congestion. It’s not a bad thing, though, and about damn time.

In to save the day, to keep those damn gays in their place, is House Speaker John Boehner, who will put himself and his sterling reputation on the line to stand against the president, his insurgent gay terrorist pals, and their dreams of marriage and equal protection under the law. That’s a relief.

When things threaten to become too constitutional, thankfully, there’s someone like John Boehner, owner of every third tear cried in America, to step in and attempt to push America back into the good old days of darkness. Rather than shoulder the awesome burden of creating some damned jobs in America, he goes for the easy cheap shot of going after gay Americans. Again.

Rollins concludes by reminded Boehner that all Americans, even the gays, have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

He also points out, quite rightly, that Boehner needs to focus on more pressing problems, like the economy: “Damn, congressman, we’re trying to get up the road here. Either lay out a plan for job creation for all of us to see or get out of the way.”
