We are so repulsed, horrified, and brokenhearted at the ever-evolving scandal surrounding Josef Fritzl, an Austrian man recently taken into custody for keeping his own daughter imprisoned under his house as a sex slave and fathering seven of her children.

There will be no end to the darkness and creepy details of this story as it continutes to be investigated, but more than anything, what we hurt for most is that this poor woman was refused the experience of having a loving father.

Our own respective dads are for sure Hardass Asian ones. But without fail they have always loved us, cared about us, and protected us from every possible ounce of harm they can sense–that’s simply something that every person deserves. We just forget, sometimes, that it’s not what every person gets.

Just yesterday, Jen wrote about the freaky situation going down in Myanmar, but we can’t seem to think of anything more deserving of double disgrace this week. We’re shaking our heads at the attacks directed at monks and supporters protesting for democracy. As more and more news rolls in about the atrocities occurring in Burma, our collective heart feels heavier and heavier.

We have, in fact, just learned that the Myanmar government has apparently cut off public access to the Internetwhich has thus far galvanized the movement by keeping those associated mobilized, connected, and informed.

Every minute that this continues is a more shameful one. Although it appears that none of our brethren in Burma can read this, you can. Please show your solidarity by wearing red today, and doing more with your time, voice, and resources.

If ever there was a time to speak loudly, this would be it. No big stick required.

This Chick is Crazy

May 9th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Surfing Digg the other day, I came upon an incredibly disturbing article on Weird Asia News. The pictures above are screen grabs from a video that recently circulated the Chinese webosphere– of a psychotically happy, maniacal girl ripping a live baby duckling apart with her feet. This is her just after the act. The photos were so gruesome that I almost cried.

But then I thought: Fuck tears. I’m angry. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? This bitch is crazy, but worse– she apparently made the video in response to another set of popular images that appeared on the website Crushworld, which depict a woman’s spiked stiletto crushing a small kitten.

I know I don’t have to say it, but everyone involved is totally sick and should be socked in the face! And if this bitch isn’t a DISGRASIAN, I don’t know who is.


You can access the article here, but please be aware that the photos are extremely graphic.
