Gus Kenworthy and How They Raise Dogs For Food In South Korea
Gus Kenworthy posted something on social media this week about the practice of raising dogs for food in South Korea. Here’s part of his quote…
This morning Matt and I had a heart-wrenching visited to one of the 17,000 dog farms here in South Korea. Across the country there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable. Yes, there is an argument to be made that eating dogs is a part of Korean culture. And, while don’t personally agree with it, I do agree that it’s not my place to impose western ideals on the people here. The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty.
Here’s the rest. I’m glad Kenworthy is bringing this up. I’ve posted about these things before in 2014, where they also happen in parts of China. Only there they actually have a dog meat festival.
Rose McGowan Has Russian Troll Bots Coming After Her
I’m only linking. I don’t come up with this stuff.
What people don’t understand a lot online about me is that the same Russian trolls, the bots they used against Hillary [Clinton], they’re doing against me. They’re doing it now.”
“The queer community was my safety. I was terrified of straight men; I was hated within that community. They were my people, and to be ostracized from that by somebody who has done so many awful things to me, and so many others, is so deeply hurtful.”
Here’s the rest. I’m just going to leave this one alone and back away very quietly.
The Pentagon and Transgender Military Service
Here’s a follow up on what’s been happening with the military and transgender people. Nothing is totally clear, but at least it sounds promising. I hope it continues to be promising. It’s hard to tell with these things. You really never do know, unfortunately.
Defense Secretary James Mattis of the US Pentagon gave the White House recommendations for transgender military service on Friday (23 February).
It is unclear what the recommendations are, but the Washington Post reported yesterday he was going to advise allowing transgender personnel to remain.
