I posted this video a few years ago, we started over since then so a few people might not know this and I stumbled upon it again today when we talked about the prettiest people in the world in the milkboys chat so here you go; not much to see, just one hell of a cute guy with some… hair. Enjoy.
People keep asking me for a blog like milkboys but with girls. I can’t really think of any way to pull that off without it being just another Tumblr. But I kind of like the idea of posting a girl here every now and then. Not every day, maybe not even every week, just sometimes.
I know that this blog is not only frequented by gay guys and as I mentioned before I’d love to make this place a bit more colourful, offer something for all niches of the queer rainbow and as a pan/bi guy myself I can tell you one thing: It’s really easy to feel left out nowadays when you get crap from (parts of) the straight and the gay side for not really caring about the gender of the person you fall for.
So, what do you think? Is that something we could, or should, tackle?
British YouTuber Calum McSwiggan thinks that the lack of education about queer aspects of life, including sex, in many schools is something we shouldn’t just accept. So he started a video series called Gay Sex 101 in which he wants to tackle several aspects of non-heterosexual intercourse to fill the gaps of knowledge teenagers are often left with when it comes to this topic.
His first video, which you can check out above, gives a (very short) overview of examples of romantic and sexual same-sex relationships throughout history. It’s obviously impossible to cover more than some basics during the span of an average YouTube videos and and if you know a thing or two about history you’ll be left with a strong desire to throw in some “But..”s and “Too be precise”s but his intent is obviously a good one and spreading some much needed information, no matter how basic, can never hurt.
The milkboys Patreon campaign is now launched :) Patreon is a way to financially support creators so they can spend more time doing what you, and they, love. In return you’ll get some fun rewards (like access to a special chat, a private blog and much more)!
You can still do one-time donations of course, if you prefer that!
Here’s what I wrote as a little introduction on Patreon:
I founded milkboys when I was a queer teenager myself, frustrated with the lack of online resources available to me and my friends. Most LGBT sites are catering to “gay men”. Not bisexuals or trans teens or even queer allies.
I wanted a site that speaks to everyone on our broad & colourful queer spectrum. A place where you can feel at home, meet people, read about how the society & politics around us are changing and having an impact on our daily lives but also have the option to just look at pretty people for a while without feeling judged.
milkboys in its current form is going into its 9th year now and I’d love to make it grow, more colourful, entertaining and more accessible to people who still have a hard time finding a place online where they can just be.
If you become a patreon of this project you will enable me to spend more time working on milkboys, update the site a lot more often than currently possible and create more original content (photos, videos, articles and so on) and in return will get a look behind the scenes and one or two other little things as a thank you ;) Thank you for your loyalty & incredibly generous support!
I will refine and add more details about the goals and rewards over the coming days! I’ll also try to get as many of the rewards as possible to people who donated before. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
A transgender boy was suspended from his high school in South Carolina for using the boys’ restroom — after being told that he can’t use the girls’ bathroom either.
He used to use the girls’ bathroom when he started his transition but that prompted complaints about a boy being in the girls’ bathroom. So the school allowed him to use the boys’ restroom for the following three years of middle-school without anyone raising an eyebrow.
This changed though when he started High School and was seen by a teacher using the same bathroom. “He must’ve looked at his records and saw the sex on his records because that’s the only way he could’ve known,” the student’s mother said. The next day, the boy was called in by administrators and told he must use the girls’ bathroom or go to the nurse’s office.
“If he started using the girl’s bathroom in 12th grade, it’s going to create a problem. I felt like that would be dangerous,” his mom said. “The nurse’s office is downstairs on the first floor of the school and the school has three stories.”
The boy was holding it, which his mother worried was unhealthy. So she told him to keep doing what he had been all along and use the boys’ bathroom. After the student was seen by teachers using the boys’ bathroom about 2 weeks ago, he was suspended. “They did not give me a copy of the write up,” his mother told the station. “They did not talk to me.”
The student’s mother enrolled him in an online school, but it means the student is missing out on all the activities he was involved in, including having to drop out of a school play.
“Let the transgender kids be themselves,” she told the station. “Let them be safe and let them be comfortable. Let them have their education in an environment where they are not harassed or felt to be unsafe.”
No explanation was given as to why the teacher was in the students’ restroom. The mother said she received an email from the Department of Education, which seemed to indicate the school was in the wrong
Why gendered bathrooms are a thing to begin with? Who knows. But this boy, and many like him, certainly know what it feels like to not belong.
