Women of Afghanistan

In my last post I stumbled onto a great mesh bag by BoHo HoBo, which led me to the shop. I was very happy to check out some great Mesh tops by the designer Trill Zapatero. She has several venues dedicated to Afghanistan and helping those impoverished by the war. In fact, she told me her proceeds all go to RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, a human rights and social justice cause for women’s education, children’s services, as well as hospital and refugee centers.

The Trillia sim has art, clothing, and educational services talking about RAWA and what you can do to help this movement. I suggest you start by purchasing these great sweater tops I’ve photoed for this post. For more information or to get involved, I would contact Trill Zapatero. She’s wonderfully charming and eager for help spreading the word about RAWA.

The Lucky Cock…I mean, Coq

The boys at The Lucky Coq are holding a AIDS fundraiser THIS WEEKEND to benefit Broadway Cares. “We are both excited to open our club and honored to support Broadway Cares, which is the USA‘s leading industry based HIV/AIDS fund-raising and grant-making organization,“ says General Manager MrLucky Dick. “As a new type of entertainment club for the gay community of Second Life, we will regularly sponsor and encourage our patrons to support worthwhile charities.

MrLucky Dick, General Manager of The Lucky Coq

The Lucky Coq will be running all types of games during the fundraiser: Greed / No Greed, Byngo Solo, Devil Hunt and Reel Wild. The fun runs ALL weekend long, and is open to everyone! Gay, straight, it don’t matter when it’s a fundraiser! Here’s a TP to the event: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Pymarid%20Island/52/39/26

Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 BC/EFA has raised over $195 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.

The Lucky Coq Gayming Club combines elements of a traditional Second Life dance club with those of a Second Life gaming area. While not all in-world gaming areas are gay-friendly, the Lucky Coq is open to anyone regardless of sex or sexual orientations who is looking for fun and socializing in a hate-free enviornment.

No Boys Allowed.

The feeds are swarming with posts on Culture Shock in the last few days. This is a most excellent thing. I, too, wanted to join in on the fun but definitely didn’t wanna go the traditional angle. All the beautiful ladies designs had been well covered and will continue to be blogged about for the next month. It’s a sad fact of Second Life, ladies rule – boys drool.

So this morning, I went with the intention of finding some men’s items that donated to the cause. I fucking love having a female avie in a men’s full suit. Tre sexeh. (By and by, I do recommed Shai Delacroix’s men’s shop for the best suits. She has a special touch with menswear and her details are fabulous.)

I will be fucking damned if I could only find ONE outfit that was menswear AND donated to the Médecins Sans Frontières. Photos Nikolaidis of A:S:S, come on DOWN! You’re the winner! *confetti* Thank you for representing the lads even though we know you are fully capable of doing some gorgeously dramatic designs for ladies.

CAVEAT. I realize I may be incorrect that A:S:S is the “only” male clothing designs in the entire event. I did thoroughly look through the entire show, however humanity is flawed. I would love to be proven wrong, and would promise to go right over and buy those new said clothes. There were plenty of outfits that were men’s, but they did NOT contribute to the cause. I only purchase items that donate.

Well boys. Looks like you’ve been shafted again. I guess we’re making up for some lost time in real life. Suck it up, put on your Big-Boy hat, and hold your girlfriend’s purse like a real man would.

Don’t Let Him Wind Up On the New Jersey Parkway

Exotic animals are NOT pets.

This month the Concerned Bloggers Association is discussing the topics of Animal Adoptions and Rights. We want our furry little friends to be protected and live healthy, humane lives around us.

It is estimated that between 5,000 and 7,000 tigers are kept as “pets” — more than exist in the wild.*

This brings us to exotic pets. For some reason people seem to think owning an “exotic animal” makes your cooler or that women will want to fuck you. This is NOT true. It only makes you a jack ass. Exotic animals are NOT domesticated like our friendly puppies and kittens. Their mission is life is NOT to amuse you while you watch tv and jerk off to the latest Victoria Secret Runway Show.

Did that sound harsh? Maybe.

The point is: It is NOT human to keep any sort of animal trapped in a cage or your home that should be out in the wild. It is beyond fucked up that a TIGER can be purchased for about $300USD*, less than a purebred dog.

Here’s the ARE YOU STUPID?! List of Animals you should NOT have in your backyard/farm/garage:

1. Kinkajou
2. Big Cats
3. Crocodiles and Alligators
4. Venomous Snakes
5. Chimps and Monkeys
6. Ostriches
7. Camels
8. Scorpions
9. Constrictors
10. Turtles

Leave these animals alone and in their proper habitat where they belong. Don’t be a shmuck.

This Public Service Announcement was brought to you by the Concerned Bloggers Association. If you would like to become involved, please contact Marleen Vaughan for more information.
