‘Outraged’ parents attack drag queen website
A parents’ group has attacked the creators of an online drag queen community, saying it may encourage children to “see gay sex as normal”.
The website, My-Queen.com, was launched last week by celebrity DJ Jodie Harsh.
Users can dress their characters, take part in fashion competitions and visit virtual bars.
They can also give their characters plastic surgery and take part in the online dating forum.
There is no age limit on the site, although users must be over 18 to join the dating forums.
According to parents’ group Parentkind, children as young as seven could be taking part in the game.
Andy Hibberd, of Parentkind, told the Daily Express: “The danger of this game is that it may give young children a state of mind where they see sex operations, dressing in drag and casual and gay sex as normal.
“Parents have to get together to protect children’s innocence and stop firms like this making money by exploiting children.”
Game maker Blouzar denied there was anything sinister about the website.
Director Chris Evans said: “Parents need not worry about children playing on our website. It is all harmless fun and teaches children about the real world.”
This is not the first time Blouzar have been criticised by parents’ groups.
Last year, the company came under fire for its Miss Bimbo game, in which young girls are encouraged to order breast implants, diet pills and clothes for their virtual characters.
