Mother puts makeup on her son and parades him in public

Here is the boy's mother. The boy's father is not mentioned or quoted in any article

This story appeared in The Blaze, and I think it’s worth blogging.

Excerpt:

Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden started getting into drag when he was 7, the Advocate reported.

And just a year later — under his stage name “Lactatia” — he’s now the newest sensation in Montreal’s drag scene, the outlet said.

[…]“Anyone can do what they want in life,” Lactatia told LGBT in the City on camera. “It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. If you want to be a drag queen and your parents don’t let you, you need new parents. If you want to be a drag queen and your friends don’t let you, you need new friends.”
After taking voguing classes, Lactatia showed up at the Werq the World drag tour when it stopped in Montreal recently. At the show, Bianca del Rio — star of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — invited Lactatia onstage where the elementary school-aged drag queen “charmed the dress off the older queen,” the Advocate reported.

Lactatia told LGBT in the City that he’s been wearing dresses “and being into girls’ stuff since I was like 3.” As for the origin of his stage name, Lactatia said his sister “made it up, and we all thought it was funny.”

And who does Lactatia’s makeup? His mother, of course.

The video, which I will not link to, has 30 million views and 225,000 shares. Which just goes to show you that a lot of people think that it is no problem at all to sexualize a child, and march him/her around in public.

The UK Daily Mail has more about the mother:

Nemis’ mother Jessica explains that her little boy was asking for her to put make-up on him from the age of two – and he just grew to love the art of it.

‘We just want our kids to express themselves however they see fit,’ she says. ‘As long as they are respectful and nice people, then I really don’t care!’

As long as her kids are nice, she doesn’t really care. This is what parenting has come down to in the 21st century, at least in progressive strongholds like Montreal.

I’m sure the mother isn’t doing this to her child for the attention, either. After all, women with nose piercings and tattooed chests shown off by low-cut tops are not seeking attention at all. Just incredible.

  1. oh yeah, i seen this on my facebook wall and im just like , people let kids do too much nowadays. Like if that child wants to dress in drag, he can do so when he’s 18 and out of my house but as a child i dont think its a good idea

  2. Basically those that non parent or generally don’t control themselves are judging those with common sense and restraint. It is the odd flip of an amoral society.

    Traditional rational people are the oppressors, and should embrace and celebrate those that are careless and illogical.

  3. It is at least possible that someday this kid will no longer want to dress in drag and realize this was just a phase. However, the internet never forgets. Imagine him in high school trying to be a normal boy. Every kid in school is going to be sharing these videos.

  4. I agree it is good that this can be changed one day so that is better it not like a full gender change or orientation commitment.

    But people are mean and he better have thick skin because all the antibullying talk has not done a thing.

    He will be reminded of this for life in this day and age. The problem is many of the people most likely to choose these are alternate views are most likely to be hurt by comments or insults

    My view is if you can’t take being mocked. Use the popular phone car, clothes etc. And you will minimize that effect. Or you can learn to not place value in how others perceive you ( my suggestion)

    1. My recommendation is to just make a metric f-ton of money as soon as you can. Work from the first day you are able and never stop. That’s the fastest way to grow up, move out and get past the peer pressure of worthless little punks. What your under 18 peers only seems important until you realize that you’re working and they’re not. When you work, you stop being a child, and stop caring about what children think of you.
