The Onion on "Ladyboy" Halloween Costumes
Happy All Hallow's Eve Eve! Here is a video from The Onion to get you in the spirit. Warning: It paints a pretty stereotypical portrait of "effeminate" boys, but more than that it parodies parents' fear that their sons aren't (gasp!) manly enough:
Pretty funny, though it would be even funnier if it weren't actually true for a lot of kids out there who are probably getting shit from their freaked out parents about dressing "normal" on Halloween. That robot costume might be cool, but what would be even cooler is if those parents laid off the homophobia and let their sons dress like ballerinas. Who cares if he pirouettes in front of the neighbors?
So Happy Halloween to all the "feminine" boys out there, and the "masculine" girls, and everyone in between. Dress however you want this year, and rest easy in the knowledge that some day you can move out of your parents' house and live however you'd like – even if that means dressing like a ballerina.
