House of Mann, an erotic gay BDSM clothing store, has been accused of sexualizing children after they used a nine-year-old boy dressed as a drag queen to model for them.
The nine-year-old drag queen who goes by the name “Queen Lactatia,” stands sexualized in the photos, wearing a sequin onesie.
Products available on House of Mann include BDSM sex harnesses, bondage gloves, jock straps, and nipple pasties, which are all tagged with keywords such as “hot,” “erotic,” gay,” “BDSM,” “fetish,” “kinky,” “dominatrix,” and “stripper.”
After users on Facebook and Twitter complained about the company sexualizing children for an erotic brand, House of Mann owner Brandon Hilton declared, “[I] woke up to countless tweets telling me ‘kill yourself’ and calling me a ‘pedo’ after we announced 9 year old drag superstar Lactatia as our new HOUSE OF MANN covergirl… If you can’t handle a kid in a sequin onesie, maybe the future isn’t for you!”
“I think this new generation of drag kids is brilliant and inspiring!” he continued in another post. “@Desmond_Amazing and Lactatia are the future! @TheHouseofMann is just making sure they look SICKENING! people will talk no matter what, might as well give them something FIERCE to look at!”
Despite the fact that some Twitter users reported the pictures, Twitter claimed they did not break any platform rules or policies.
The nine-year-old boy first became known to the public in September 2017, when he appeared on ITV’s This Morning with his mother, wearing a pink wig, makeup, and a dress.
“I think it’s extremely important to allow your children to really tap into their creative side, encourage and foster that independent spirit and being an individual,” proclaimed his mother in support. “I encourage all parents with their kids, if they have a passion, support it and let them do it.”
An abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio is specifically targeting black women in a new billboard campaign. The Preterm abortion clinic is pushing a billboard campaign only in majority-black neighborhoods, lending additional credence to the notion that abortion clinics specifically focus on selling abortions to black women and aborting black babies.
LifeNews has previously reported about studies showing that abortion clinics are predominantly located in minority neighborhoods, specifically targeting Black and Hispanic neighborhoods. Now the news that a Cleveland, Ohio abortion clinic is only trying to sell abortions to black women adds to those previous studies.
Preterm recently paid for 16 billboards in the Cleveland area that display the words “Abortion is …” followed by different phrases, such as “a parenting decision,” “a blessing,” “liberty” and “your right.” Other phrases include “life-saving,” “necessary” and “a second chance.”
None of the billboards explain what an abortion actually is: the killing of a unique, living human being in the womb. In most cases, abortions occur after the unborn baby’s heart already is beating.
But the billboards also target black babies:
Over at RedState, Jennifer Van Laar had a rather disturbing post coming out of Ohio. There appears to be a campaign from an abortion provider, Preterm, that is specifically targeting the black community in Cleveland. Van Laar cited local residents who took photos of the billboards. Some doulas have called the campaign racist, with the outrage becoming loud enough that members of the city council have reached out to Preterm to have a conservation with their executive’s leadership about the controversy. The signs read, “abortion is good medicine” and “abortion is necessary.”

The billboards outraged Cleveland radio host Darvio Morrow, who is black.
“They are outright targeting black people and trying to put a happy face on abortion. I am appalled by this,” he said.
There’s nothing “new” about this debate, other than some providers, like Preterm apparently, trying to use Orwellian tactics to convince people that abortion is “good medicine.” Van Laar added that Basheer Jones, a newly elected city councilman, has reached out to discuss this matter with Preterm, which he shared on social media
Research by Protecting Black Life found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of black and Latino neighborhoods.
Abortions hurt every race and culture, but black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups. According to census data, African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population but have about 30 percent of the abortions.
African-American teenage abortion rates are more than twice as high as the national average. The African American abortion rate is 41 per 1,000 women ages 15 to 19, according to the study conducted by the Guttmacher Institute. The national average abortion rate is 18 per 1,000 women ages 15 to 19.
