Shaun Sperling Becomes a Man: VIDEO


A 'When I Knew' moment:

On March 14, 1992, Shaun Sperling read from the Torah and became a Bar Mitzvah in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. The theme Shaun chose to signify the religious celebration of him becoming a man was, 'Madonna'. To kick off the party, he performed a dance to 'Vogue' - now strike a pose and lets get to it...

  5. i had a similar one but it was my tenth and it involved me acting out every single line, lyric, move and choreographic *beat* of West Side Story.

  6. He has another video of himself all growed up. Not a bad looking guy.

  7. I would have been so in love with him! Growing up in Skokie, I had a thing for Jewish boys.

  8. I'm kvelling. My Bar Mitzvah wasn't that exciting.

    Is this someone we (I?) should know?

  9. Another proof that you were born this way.

  10. Shaun is fantastic! He's a new lawyer in Chicago and does tremendous work with local AIDS charities.

  11. Shaun's parents are to be commended. He obviously has balls of steel, and they did not stand in the way of his flexing them.

  15. Perhaps I have too much Olympics on the brain... standing there by the corner of the square awkwardly dancing, I was expecting him to start a flipping and flopping gymnastics floor routine.

    I was sadly disappointed.

    I hope he is a better lawyer than dancer.

  16. wild. i loved the early 90s. but the video should be under the heading "when everybody else knew/sort-of-suspected/didn't-want-say-it, and when i thought i was simply being stylish".

  17. What a cringe-inducing embarrassment. A 13-year old boy mimicking a woman on the day that he supposedly became a man.

  18. @DERRICK What exactly is cringe-inducing about this and how is he exactly mimicking a woman?? The kid is having fun and so is everyone else in the room. Something your uptight self loathing ass seems to be incapable of having.

  19. @DERRICK

    Social construct gender role rubbish. It's for that reason that we have homophobia.

  20. He's awesome!!!! I wish I was man enough to do this when I was thirteen!

  21. Derrick, another Rick/Jason/Ratbastard alias, again bringing up how awful women are in the exact same wording they always use.

    How tiresome.
