Shock after Dutch priest endorses pedophilia

by Accidental Bear

Dutch Catholic Church spokesman Pieter Kohnen said Saturday that, even with sex abuse scandals rocking the church worldwide, this particular case was “unbelievable” and the church utterly rejects pedophilia. He said if Superior Claes did not act quickly to reform the Dutch Salesian order’s leadership, the matter would be referred to Rome.

Golden Bear for Unionmade Varsity Vest

by Accidental Bear

“Take me down to paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty…” or take me down to San Francisco city where the streets are grey and the girls are hairy. The weather in SF can change 30 degrees from morning to night, so as an experienced resident of SF you know to layer or to keep your core warm from the elements. The perfect item for this task is the varsity vest. I saw a guy wearing one yesterday, with full tattoo sleeves and just the vest. I call that sleazy-sexy! ~AB
You can find this item here in SF @ UNIONMADE

Acting Sexy Now Illegal in Utah

by Accidental Bear

Fuck! There goes my whole road trip idea for the summer. I was going to swing into Utah for a few days, walk the streets swishing my hips desperately from side to side, suck on the straw of my black cherry 7-11 slurpie on the corner as if my life hung on every last drop and then go hang out in the park as I playfully rub raspberry flavored whip cream on my nipples as I let all the dogs in the park and their owners lick it off. All non-sexually of course.~ AB

by Max Read — Despite being home to the sexist national park (Arches) and the sexiest salt water lake (Great Salt Lake), Utah doesn’t want you to think of it as a sexy state. And so, in an attempt to make it easier for police to arrest prostitutes, the state has gone ahead and outlawed acting sexy altogether.

Two Utah escort services have filed a lawsuit against a new state law that broadens the legal definition of solicitation to include exposing genitals and touching yourself sexually, arguing that police can now arrest just about anyone who is acting in a sexy manner — like strippers or escorts. As attorney Andrew McCullough points out, “most girls who touch their breasts are not telling you they’re open for sex.”

Now, obviously, there are ways to act sexy without “touching yourself sexually.” But this isn’t the Victorian era! Basically the only way to find a husband or wife these days is to show up at a bar and aggressively touch yourself, sexually. Does Utah really want to make that illegal?

“We’re Here, We’re Queer, We Take it in the Rear”: Lisa Lampanelli Hate Into AIDS Cash Cow

Lisa Lampanelli Turns Westboro Hate Into AIDS Cash Cow
By Winston Gieseke @ Advocate Mag

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli, who vowed to donate $1,000 to GMHC for every member of Fred Phelp’s Westboro Baptist Church who picketed her show last night in Topeka, Kansas, has said she will give $44,000 to the nation’s oldest HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care services provider.

“We are grateful for Lisa Lampanelli’s kindness and courage to fight homophobia,” said Marjorie Hill, PhD, CEO of GMHC. “She is holding up a mirror to bigotry and hatred, and reflecting back love and generosity.”

Before her show, Lampanelli, who has steadfastly supported the LGBT community, went outside to greet the protesters, 44 of whom showed up holding signs with messages saying “God Hates Fag Enablers,” “God Hates America,” and “God Hates You.”

After the show, the comedian tweeted that she will be writing a check for $44,000 in the church’s name.
