  1. Did you recognize, that Anna Stephanson is giving tips to parents, who have boys beeing attracted to girl clothing ? This woman is giving tips to prevent parents to have their boy dressed with girly stuff and don’t want their boys to go out of the house with this dress.
    You published this video hopefully, to show that this is a small minded stuff.
    But of cource, this is an US-american video and i’m not surprised about this bigottry.
    By the way all the costumes are more suitable for carneval than for Halloween. what i didn’t like om this report : This woman dumps out some fluit over the head of the vampire boy. It is clearly to be heart, that this boy didn’t like it and was worried about his costume. The roboter costume is neither good for carneval nor for Haloveen. I don’t know who decided to show this uncomfortable costume

      1. There’s always at least one. I knew that there’d be a post like that when it said “Onion News” at the start of the video.

        How there’s anyone that hasn’t heard of them is beyond me. Seems like there isn’t a week that goes by without someone freaking out over their articles.

    1. @chimel – as it seems like this, it’s ok. I don’t know Onion. So i don’t know, that its a web.devideo ;-)

  2. 😘Loved it, specially our little flaming actors playing gay in their macho, ‘hetro’ costumes!

  3. “But unless you lock them in the house you run the risk that the lady-boy will sneak out on his own, dressed as a ballerina, and you’ll find him pirouetting on somebody’s front porch with the whole neighbourhood watching”

    Just brilliant. A real LOL.

    The Onion reminds me of Brass Eye, a similar UK news send-up.
    YouTube has plenty: “Paedogeddon!” (ep. 7) and “Drugs” (ep. 2) especially, both of which mercilessly trick various celebs into making idiots of themselves.

  4. I’ve never heard of Onion and believed this was real up to about 1.20 mark. I even thought Travis was real. Mind you I was pissing myself up unto that point. I now know they are actors. But are they girly in real life? . Travis was me when I was 11, except I have white hair. So that’s why I initially fell for it.

    1. Yes, it’s satire, as shown by the Onion icon. Otherwise, imagine anyone daring to say “faggy-acting little boys” on the air.

  5. Do desire the boys to come here for to show off. hall – oh – eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee NNNNN

  6. I can’t believe The Onion is still fooling people after all these years…. check your sources, folks!

  7. Americans don’t really understand satire and often mistake offensiveness for comedy.

  8. Some people mistake offensiveness for comedy; others, comedy for offensiveness. Curiously, both are called “boors”.

    If you’re the parent of an overly feminine little boy,
    00:09
    choosing the right Halloween costume is crucial
    00:12
    for avoiding humiliation during your family’s trick-or-treat outings.
    00:16
    Luckily, our next guest is here to help us tackle
    00:18
    this difficult problem, head on. Jim.
    00:21
    Thanks Trace.
    00:22
    This is Anna Stephenson, author of “Actually, He’s a Boy,”
    00:25
    a how-to manual for parenting an effeminate male child.
    00:28
    Good to see you this morning, Anna. – Oh, thanks for having me, Jim.
    00:30
    I’m actually very excited to talk to you today
    00:31
    because when my nephew, Derrick, turned eight,
    00:34
    he started acting giggly all the time.
    00:36
    My brother is beside himself, he’s afraid to let him out of the house,
    00:39
    let alone on a night when everybody’s dressing up.
    00:41
    Right, well a lot of parents feel that way, Jim.
    00:43
    But unless you lock him in the house, you run the risk
    00:45
    that the ladyboy will sneak out on his own dressed as a ballerina.
    00:48
    And you’ll find him pirouetting on somebody’s front porch
    00:50
    with the whole neighborhood watching. – Oh, the worst nightmare!
    00:52
    But the good news is, with a little creativity,
    00:54
    we can disguise your girly son as a normal kid.
    00:57
    Well, tell us how to do that, Anna!
    00:58
    Come on out, Travis!
    01:00
    Oh, it looks like we have a little soldier man here.
    01:01
    This is Travis, say hello, Travis. – Hello, Travis.
    01:05
    Travis had a gun and a threatening knife there.
    01:07
    But if you want your child to depict a male dominated profession,
    01:10
    be very careful not to choose one that’s been co-opted
    01:12
    by the gay community like a fireman, a cop, a cowboy… – Good point!
    01:16
    Otherwise they’ll just end up looking like a stripper. – Right, exactly!
    01:18
    Now let’s take a look at Ben. – Ben, come on out!
    01:21
    The world of science fiction is a great place to look for
    01:24
    fierce and violent characters. – Right, right.
    01:26
    So you’re a scary robot, huh? – I guess so.
    01:28
    This is also a good costume for what I call, a prancer. – A prancer.
    01:32
    A son who skips delicately instead of just walking.
    01:34
    Ben, take a few steps.
    01:36
    Well, look at that! Problem solved.
    01:38
    I want to be a pastry chef but she wouldn’t let me…
    01:41
    Oh, look at this feature!
    01:42
    Oh, now that’s a good option.
    01:44
    Especially if you’re losing control of the situation.
    01:47
    Next we have Lance. – Oh, hey!
    01:50
    How you doing in there, Big Head?
    01:51
    Lance has long lashes and an almost compulsive habit
    01:54
    of twirling his curly, blond around his fingers.
    01:56
    Oh, well not anymore with that head, right?
    01:58
    I’m a big old bear! – Yes, you are.
    02:01
    The big head also muffles his lisp.
    02:03
    Oh! Maybe that’s the costume for my nephew then.
    02:05
    Oh, could be. – That’s a great idea.
    02:07
    Now we have Christian. – Bla!
    02:09
    Is a vampire really the right choice here?
    02:11
    Yes, well, vampires are flashy dressers
    02:14
    but it’s all in the service of seducing a woman.
    02:16
    Oh, OK, right. – They’re virile and dangerous.
    02:18
    But here’s what I want to show you.
    02:19
    By using copious amount of blood
    02:22
    we have sissy-proofed this costume.
    02:24
    Now that’s a very menacing looking costume.
    02:27
    Very masculine! – You ruined my costume!
    02:29
    It happens sometimes, sweetie, go ahead.
    02:31
    That’s really neat.
    02:32
    Now, I hope you parents at home who have faggy acting little boys
    02:35
    have been taking notes, because we got a lot of good advice here.
    02:37
    Now we’re going to head back over to Tracy,
    02:39
    who’s going to show us how effective trick-or-treating
    02:40
    can feed your entire family for a week!
