Korean Mommies-To-Be Flood Hospitals On 11/11/11 For C-Sections

But if you all do it, it won't be special anymore! LOL!

There is a strange and crazy report coming out of Korea that pregnant women are flooding the hospitals, demanding Cesarean sections tomorrow so their babies will be born today … as in 11/11/11!

Yep! The craze has moved far beyond the Internet!

Now, aside from having a really awesome palindromic number for your birthday, being born today also means their Korean Resident Registration Number, which every resident must have, will have the same 111111 sequence, since the first six number correspond to a person's date of birth.

We're hearing that the number of appointments for C-section births today is 20 percent higher than the year before and even mothers who are week before their expected due date have slated to bring their babies into the world TODAY!

Wow! That's some hard core love for math! Palindromes, what what!

Animal Rights Group Protests Against Dog And Cat Meat In South Korea

Filed under: Animal RightsDogCatAnimal Cruelty

Animal rights activists protested against the consumption of dog and cat meat in front of the Korean consulate in San Francisco Tuesday morning.

Even though it's illegal to eat dogs and cats in South Korea, the government has NOT been strict enough in enforcing the laws, allowing the antiquated practice to continue in the country. In Defense of Animals Campaign Manager Robin Dorman says "the law is deliberately obscure."

Dog meat is used in a summer stew, which is why protestors feel the need to get the word out immediately. The sad part is that, according to Dorman, "according to South Korean activists, that the more a dog is tortured, the better the taste."

Ugh. That's terrible.

Thankfully there has been some progress, however.

A major annual festival at the infamous outdoor market near Seoul called the Moran Market was canceled this year due to pressure, both domestically and internationally, because it's the place where a majority of Korea's dog meat is sold.

We can't even imagine one of our pets ending up on our plates.

Hopefully with word getting out, the consumption of dog and cat meat will soon be illegal in every country.

Korean Mothers Form Union To Protest Gay Storyline On TV Drama!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsGay Gay GaySad Sad

This is just so twisted and sad.

A group of mothers in Korea have become so upset about the portrayal of a gay couple on a popular drama, called Life Is Beautiful, that they have formed a union and released an open letter in protest of the series in yesterday's issue of the Chosun Journal!

It reads:

“If my son becomes gay and dies from AIDs after watching ‘Life Is Beautiful’, SBS must take responsibility! ‘Life Is Beautiful’ has glamorized the culture of gays against what is realistically, healthy and proper for the citizens of Korea.”

Deplorable! And SO ignorant!

It's truly crushing to us that so many people in the world still believe this kind of foolish nonsense.

Luckily, openly gay Korean actor Hong Seok Cheon was just as upset, and wrote the following statement:

"Take responsibility for my son becoming gay because of the drama? What a funny ad, but also quite disappointing. Soon they will be putting out an ad saying don’t hang out with Hong Seok Cheon if you don’t want to be gay. This was the exact reason I was fired from BboBboBbo 10 years ago when I first came out. All of those calls made to the broadcast company asking to take me off the show. If such logic was true, all of those children that were on a part of the show with me should be gay by now, but they aren’t.

The gay couple that is shown on ‘Life Is Beautiful’ is so beautifully and realistically drawn. If there really is a son out there that becomes gay after watching the drama, it is not because he became gay but because he actually was gay and finally earned enough confidence to come out. It could be the drama that gave him that strength to come out to his parents and ask for understanding. How unfortunate for the children that live under the parents that put out such a trashy advertisement. AIDS is not a disease specific to gays. How is it that I found out that I was gay 25 years before I saw the drama ‘Life Is Beautiful?’ What kind of dramas did the gays in the 50s, 60s, and 70s watch in order to become gay? Being gay is not a contagious disease, you fools.

The people that put out this ad not only demolished the human rights of gays but of AIDS patients as well. This is such an amazing country, allowing such ads to be put out. This ad being released is a more severe problem than the fact that gays are shown on a public broadcast drama. Anything can be released as long as money is involved, I suppose.

I thank everyone that has sent me support mail. Compared to the hate mail I received 10 years ago, there is so much support that has made me cry and feel endlessly thankful. I feel as if my loneliness and sorrow during the past 10 years has finally been delivered. I’ve now earned the confidence to live on even harder for the next 10 years. I’ll become a Hong Seok Cheon that satisfies everyone not only as a businessman but as an actor as well. Thank you."

Wonderfully stated, and 100% true!

We're thrilled he took the time to take a stand and shoot down such a ridiculous message!

We sincerely hope that he, and the gay couple on that drama, continue to educate and open the public's eyes to tolerance and acceptance of others with a different sexual preference!

There has been far too much loss and tragedy because of ignorance and hate! It needs to end NOW!
