Batman is not allowed to have a penis because people are whack

milkboys Comics, News 4 Comments

Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo’s Batman: Damned #1, the first in DC Comics’ Black Label series for “mature readers”, reveals a new look at the Caped Crusader. You can have a look below:

Inevitably body shame is still a hot trend in the 21st century, even in a publication made specifically for adults. So objection to the revelation actually prompted DC to edit the superjunk out in digital editions. And Bleeding Cool reports that some retailers in more conservative areas of the U.S. are calling to make the comic returnable. Because we all know that smashing people to a gulp with baseball bats is all good but showing the human body goes too far, right?

Video Playback Problems

milkboys Blog 3 Comments

Hey, just wanted to let you know real quick that I‘m aware that some videos here and on juiceboys don‘t play in Safari.

While I can’t say I‘m shocked (Safari always was the worst browser imaginable :P) I‘m currently looking into other plugins to embed videos so they will work for everyone.

In the meantime, if you’re on a Mac you can use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome to watch the videos. On mobile devices using iOS there’s no workaround I’m aware of since Apple doesn’t allow third-party browser engines on their devices so even Firefox and Chrome have to use the Safari engine on the iPad and iPhone.

Right-wing Journalist tries to humiliate drag kid, inevitably fails

milkboys News 13 Comments

At 11 years old Desmond Is Amazing is one of the youngest drag queens in the world and he’s already using his platform to inspire the queer community. He’s been living his best life recently, including performing at the revived Wigstock festival.

Some people, however, aren’t thrilled about his success. They also don’t like that Desmond uses his platform to talk about real-world issues like gun violence at American schools. Alex Parker wrote a piece about Desmond for the right-wing site Red State, getting up in arms about Desmond’s lifestyle and activism.

“In addition to his busy schedule as a gay and “drag kid” activist, amazing Desmond’s moved into anti-gun radicalism,” Parker wrote. “That’s right—sometimes it isn’t enough to slap on some rouge, top yourself with a daffodil wig, and pull on a pleather polka-dotted sequined v-neck tapered blousy netted metallic backless cocktail dress; sometimes ya gotta rage against the 2nd Amendment.”

The article came about in response to Desmond participating in a demonstration by Gays Against Guns during New York Fashion Week. Luckily, Desmond had no time for the crude attempt at humiliation as you can see below:

This Conservative website, Red State, did an article about me with the headline "Being Amazing: 11-Year-Old Drag Kid Fights To Take Away Your Guns". They meant to make me look like a fool and hurt and embarrass my family. They tried to make me look crazy for protesting against gun violence in schools with @changetheref and @gaysagainstgunsny But really, they made me look even more AMAZING, even going so far as to emphasize that I've earned awards for my work in the LGBTQ+ community, that my career started in 2014 with @thejinkx, and that I created the term "drag kid". I mean, they ain't lying! I've done ALL of those things and I'm grateful for the recognition. So, if you want to see what a sad bunch of adults who have nothing better to do than bully a child, call them names, and make up sexual scenarios about them, looks like, copy and paste the link below into your browser. But I wouldn't recommend it… No need to give them any needed ad revenue. https://www.redstate.com/alexparker/2018/09/13/desmond-is-amazing-gun-control/ . . . #changetheref #gaysagainstguns #bullying #babydrag #babydragqueen #boysinmakeup #brooklyndrag #clubkid #clubkids #drag #dragart #dragartist #dragbaby #dragkid #dragkids #draglife #dragqueen #dragqueer #dragsuperstar #influencer #klubkids #love #myartistcommunity #mua #nonbinary #nycdrag #queerartist . #desmondisamazing #beyourselfalways #amazies . booking: @pegmgmt

A lot of people will try to measure their dick with their iPhones now

milkboys App 7 Comments

Apple released an update to iOS, the operating system running on iPhones & iPads, last Monday. Among iOS 12’s new features is the Measure app, which gives people the ability to measure things with their cameras using an “augmented reality” ruler — just point your camera at something and bam! The ruler will measure it. Naturally many people immediately thought about using the Measure app on their penises. But you should know that the Measure app may not be entirely accurate for this kind of measurement.

In one test someone used the Measure app to figure out the dimensions of a picture frame. The frame was 78 centimetres by 101 centimetres, but the app said it was 63 centimetres by 82 centimetres, a nearly 20% difference.

When that same user repeatedly measured a 55-centimetre wooden flute with the Measure app, it gave three different length measurements — 51, 53 and 57 centimetres — each depending on the lighting.

This news comes as a real bummer for guys & girls around the world. Whether you’re insecure or proud of your penis length, odds are that what we’d hoped would be state-of-the-art penis measurement iPhone technology will say your penis is shorter than it actually is! (Which, yeah, could help you catfish guys by adding a few “augmented reality” centimetres, but you wouldn’t do that, would you?)

Perhaps we’ll just have to measure our penises in photographs the old-fashioned way: by comparing them to water bottles, toilet paper tubes and video game controllers. Thanks for nothing, Apple!

Grindr kicks of Kindr campaign

milkboys App, News & Opinions 7 Comments

Grindr wants to take a step to combat racist and shaming language on user profiles. RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant The Vixen, former Queer Eye host Jai Rodriguez, Joel Kim Booster, Malcolm Robinson, Rakeem Cunningham, Ray (Emilio Amador), and Jasmine are featured in the “kindr” campaign from Grindr against sexual racism, speaking about their experiences of racism on- and offline.

“If you don’t put ‘no Asians’ in your profile, it doesn’t mean you have to f**k Asians now,” says Booster. “It just means I don’t have to see it….For you to say ‘I know what every Asian guy looks like and I know for a fact that I would not be attracted to any of them?’ That comes from a racist place. Because you don’t know what we all look like. That’s ugly.”

“You don’t know what the person on the other side of the phone is going through,” adds Rodriguez. “You have no idea what their experience is, or what else they have going on, or what that comment might do to them.”

Grindr, also released a statement further elaborating on the Kindr initiative:

Sexual racism, transphobia, fat and femme shaming and further forms of othering such as stigmatization of HIV positive individuals are pervasive problems in the LGBTQ community. These community issues get brought onto our platform, and as a leader in the gay dating space, Grindr has a responsibility to not only protect our users, but also to set the standard for the broader community that we serve.

Online discrimination has reached epidemic proportions affecting not only Grindr but other social networks. Our ‘Kindr’ initiative is a rallying call for Grindr and our community to take a stand against sexual racism and all forms of othering.
