Halloween costumes - keeping it butch

I love satire that points out the absurdity of prejudice.

Here's a very funny clip from The Onion about butching up your sissy boy with an appropriate Halloween costume. (To think that we still worry about this.)

Of course we still worry about this! But this clip was too funny, thanks for posting it.

Hi shaantvis,

Thanks for commenting. I'm glad you like the clip.

I would have to say that parents where I live don't really seem to care that much about whether their kids are act according to stereotypical gender roles. I'm seeing a lot more acceptance of diversity in this area.

Unfortunately, this is not the case in Mormon culture. Kids who don't exactly fit the culture's gender scripts are treated quite shabbily. (Where's the love?)

Just saw this on another site. Love it. The "mother" and "host" were just a little too CBN-real, I must say. :twitch: :lol:
