A collection of word sto share my feeling about these dog eaters fury, anger, rage, disapproval, wrath, offense, insult, injustice, disgrace, act of violence/wickedness, crime, wrong, barbarism, inhumane act. At what point do stop caring about another ones culture and fight for what YOU feel is best? AB

SEOUL — A South Korean dog meat festival has been cancelled following growls of protest from animal rights activists, one of the would-be organisers said Tuesday.

The Korea Dog Farmers’ Association had scheduled for Friday a festival aimed at promoting traditional dog meat consumption, said Ann Yong-Geun, an adviser to the association.

“We couldn’t possibly go on with the plan due to endless phone calls of complaint… now there are few willing to rent us a place for the event,” Ann, a professor of nutrition at Chung Cheong University, told AFP.

Chinese Teenager Sells Kidney for iPad2

by Accidental Bear

The most shocking part of this story is not that his parents had no clue what he was up to but his kidney removal was set up by a broker!

A 17-year-old student in Anhui Province sold one of his kidneys for 20,000 yuan only to buy an iPad 2. Now, with his health getting worse, the boy is feeling regret but it is too late, the Global Times reported today.

“I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it,” said the boy surnamed Zheng in Huaishan City. “A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan.” Read More

Lee 101 Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection: Woodsy

by Accidental Bear

 Woods, but the real test is, Can you swing an axe? Back in the day Lee was un-cool hand me downs. Through the test of time and durability Lee is stronger than ever. Woodsmen, dock workers, and laborers alike are the inspiration for the Lee 101 collection. “A highlight of the collection is the Logger Jean – sturdily constructed it is fitted with extra durable and functional details such as suspenders and additional pockets, it is available in a selection of 5 finishes (2 rigid, 3 washes).”  You will be protected by the city elements you city slicker: rough train seats, close encounters with rogue nails sticking out under your  work space or desk and unexpected downpours of acid rain.

Handpicked News: The Senate: ‘It Gets Better’, Dustin Lance Black, Obama Talks Marriage, Bullied With A Noose

by Accidental Bear

 Flesh-Eating Cocaine Hits New York, Los Angeles It seems cocaine has been behind a rash of flesh-eating disease outbreaks in Los Angeles and New York.Cocaine cut with the veterinary drug, levamisole has apparently been linked to a number of cases of rotting flesh, according to Good Morning America. While the cases reported thus far have been on the coasts, officials have warned that it could very well be a nationwide problem. From GMA:

A video for LGBT youth around the country and the It Gets Better Project, featuring U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).

Dustin Lance Black Takes On Obama’s Marriage Position Can President Obama have it both ways on the marriage issue? Can he rally support and dollars from the LGBT community yet assert that marriage rights are an issue for the states to decide? As the president hosts a National Pride Month reception Wednesday at the White House, a growing number of activists and pundits say no — including Academy Award-winning Milkscreenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

Obama Talks Marriage at WH News Conference President Barack Obama did not directly address a question during Wednesday’s news conference on whether marriage is a civil right, referring instead to his track record on LGBT issues and his support for states to decide the issue. “Let me start by saying this administration under my direction has consistently said we cannot discriminate as a country on the basis of sexual orientation,” Obama said in answer to a question from Chuck Todd of NBC News. “And we have done more in the two and half years that I’ve been here than the previous 43 presidents to uphold that principle.”

Trevor Project Honors Actor

by Accidental Bear

The Trevor Project, founded in 1998, is devoted to increasing acceptance and preventing suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. Its fund-raiser may also be one of the few in New York City where several pairs of men’s 2xist underwear were up for silent auction.

The first thing being celebrated was the 21-year-old actor Daniel Radcliffe, currently starring in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” on Broadway and soon to appear in movie theaters in the final installment of the Harry Potter films, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2.” The second was the right to gay marriage in New York.

Let’s start with Mr. Radcliffe, who a few years ago, lent his name to the organization and made a public-service announcement on its behalf. MORE

Quentin races through my blood and tickles all my sensations no matter what he does. His Jay Leno skin doesn’t even bother me.

Feeding the Gays; New Addition to Accidental Bear

by Accidental Bear

I needed to add a section on Accidental Bear that made no sense, was gratuitous and an excuse to post artfully taken sexy pics and inconceivable, unthinkable,unimaginable, unconvincing, far-fetched, dubious, implausible, improbable, unrealistic and  unbelievable stories, videos and pictures. I guess that we could also call this section, Formerly Known as Fluff.

Swedish Preschool Bans GenderA public preschool in a liberal part of Stockholm has created an environment where gendered pronouns are not used, the children are referred to as “friends” instead of “boys and girls,” and toys are deliberately gender neutral. Sounds crazy! It also sounds like a conservative’s worst fucking nightmare. From the New York Daily News:

Michelle Obama Mum on Marriage If Michelle Obama supports gay marriage, she’s not saying so publicly.The first lady’s communications director, Kristina Schake, told Politico today that “Mrs. Obama has never made any public statements about same-sex marriage.”

San Francisco Street Sheets; What the Hell Are They? Who, What, and Why gets Answered

by Accidental Bear

While tramping around the streets of San Francisco, whether in the Castro, Downtown, Civic Center, The Haight and all other neighborhoods, it is most likely at the most awkward of times, you have been approached by what looks like a possible homeless person asking/shouting, “Street Sheet. Spare Money or whatever you can. Street Sheet.” Like a well weathered street-walker, I am numb to these distractions and pounce past the, “Street Sheets” calls with little of no acknowledgment.

The STREET SHEET is a publication of the Coalition on Homelessness, San Francisco. The Coalition on Homelessness was formed in 1987 to foster the active participation of homeless and low-income San Francisco residents and front-line staff in the struggle for economic and social justice. Through an integrated approach that combines outreach, peer support, leadership development, public education, advocacy, and community organizing, the COH works to defend homeless and low-income people from attacks on their rights and their persons, while advocating for permanent solutions to homelessness that take into account not only poverty’s devastating effects, but also its root causes.
