Video: Boy Cries at Beyonce's "Single Ladies"

The Crisis of Masculinity Begins at Home, or in the Car

Just yesterday, we laughed at how out of control the so-called crisis of masculinity has become, but now, through the tears of an innocent toddler we see where it begins. When his sister and friend start singing along to Beyonce's "Single Ladies," he happily joins in until his father says, "You're not a single lady, buddy." And he bursts into tears.

As a mother of a three year old little boy, I thought the funny thing was how true to age this is - three year olds can turn on a dime. Mine does! The dad (though he should have been focusing on the driving) didn't mean anything about the kid's gender or sexuality. And I guarantee that little dude isn't scarred for life by one comment and one fit. He is awfully cute though ;)

yeah, you will will hear about transgenderism, because it does start young and male and female, and femininity and masculinity aren't as cut and dry as people like to think. what's wrong with NOT being narrowminded and applying critical thinking to situations? this is how gender roles are ingrained in children, when they are told they can't participate in, do, wear, or say things because they are not gender appropriate. if he wants to sing single ladies i wish his father would have let him.

I think that he just wanted to be part of the group, and when he was told he wasn't that hurt his feelings.It has nothing to do with masculinity, it's just a boy that wanted to be part of the crew.

LOL. Awwww, I think this was just a big mishap. The Dad meant well, and the little boy just wanted to dance. I found the girl on the far left to be very touching. She reached over to comfort her little brother. She's very sweet and thoughtful. Good big sister.

I watched this video to see what all of the hype was about.... and personally, I didn't see it. From what it looked like to me, the boy was crying because the dad started laughing at him. He looked confused at the statement...but then after the dad started laughing, that's when the boy went off. So I highly doubt he's crying because he is "not a single lady."

I'm another one who agrees this has nothing to do with's a throw away comment by dad which let's face it most of us would've come out with. The girl in the middle is hilarious, her utter look of disgust is priceless.

While I think this video is hilarious I am disturbed by the stupidity of the father. YOU ARE MEANT TO BE DRIVING YOUR CAR. Idiot.

The father was clearly didn't mean anything about it, not like he was telling the kid to stop dancing. It's just a funny video of a kid overacting. PS...I love the reaction of the little girl in the middle seat.

If the little boy wanted to dance, they should've let him dance. Doesn't matter if it's for the "Single Ladies" video or whatnot. He's just a kid.

Have to agree with #1... although I'm guessing tomorrow's story will be on how young the transgender transformation process can begin...

I don't really get how this is about masculinity. HE IS NOT A LADY. It's not like it is up for discussion. He is a boy. Period.
