The Daily Sting, Friday: A Nazi-Punching Drag Queen, Facetime Sex Gone Bad, New From H&M
TGIF, amirite? Today’s top headlines include a Nazi-punching drag queen (praise be to thee, Morgan McMichaels) and the world’s first same-sex mice parents of healthy little mice kids, so we hope you’re not skittish around rodents!
Also in the news today, a look at the official collaboration between H&M and Moschino by way of Jermey Scott, great news for our favorite college-age wrestler and the always-hilarious Matt Wilkas and Daniel Vincent Gordh just dropped a hilarious “Facetime sex” video that’ll leave you rolling.
From a no-shit-taking Morgan McMichaels to mice kids to Facetime sex gone wrong, here are today’s queerest headlines:
1. Welcome the World’s First Healthy Mice With No Father (News)
It’s not the first time that mammals have been created from the genetic material of two females, but it’s the first time scientists were able to produce healthy offspring from the experiment. There’s officially a batch of mice kids running around with no father, thanks to researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. And these mice will themselves be able to reproduce. Unfortunately the scientists’ attempt to do the same with two male mice wasn’t successful — sorry gays, though the accomplishment was never intended to be parlayed into human use anyway.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 2 alum Morgan McMichaels has found herself in the headlines today, but it’s not for a sickening death drop or her (seriously world-famous) celebrity illusions. Nah, she punched a Nazi — so hard, in fact, that she has the broken hand to show for it. McMichaels recounted the incident on social media: “I was approached by a man at the store who informed me that he was a Nazi and he wanted to cut my faggot throat[.] After he took a swing I obliged him and finished the fight. … This faggot will not be victimized.” Ah, a drag queen after our own heart.
3. Trans Wrestler Mack Beggs Has Been Welcomed to His Men’s College Wrestling Team (Sports)
If the name Mack Beggs doesn’t sound familiar, maybe you’ve heard rumblings of that young trans wrestler in Texas who was being forced to wrestle girls due to outdated state laws and policies? Or maybe you recently saw Beggs on a recent episode of Tosh.0. Great news: Outsports reports that the state high school wrestling champ has been welcomed with open arms to the men’s wrestling team at Life University near Atlanta. Expect great things from this guy!

4. H&M Teams With Moschino and Jeremy Scott For New Collaboration (Style & Stuff)
Famed Swedish fast fashion brand H&M is known for its collaborations with various designers, and the latest is a team-up with Moschino designer Jeremy Scott, known for his wacky, outlandish creations. “H&Moschino” as it’s being called is an expansive new collection, including everything from work boots to denim shorts. GQ has called it “fashion’s boldest ’90s tribute yet, while Esquire says it’s a “celebration of diversity.”

5. Viral Vid: Matt and Dan Have a Botched Facetime Sex Session (Video)
If you don’t find yourself in a Matt Wilkas click hole after this, what’s wrong with you?! The actor (best known for his starring role in the surprisingly amazing queer indie film Gayby and as the boyfriend of gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy) has just dropped a new video titled “When Facetime Sex Goes Terribly Wrong.” We don’t wanna give too much away, so you’ll have to watch! Wilkas and his comedy partner Daniel Vincent Gordh are working to fund the second season of their series Matt and Dan, and you can support it here!
