After deciding to do it, I had to think of a way to present the idea. Part of me wanted to do a simple text story, but I kind of wanted more than that. I wanted to present pictures; I wanted readers to see these feminized boys. And so, I settled on a caption story. Then, in a fit of inspiration, I saw an issue of Entertainment Weekly (at the dentist's office), and I remembered my fake Time Magazine cover/articles. Immediately, I knew how to present the idea.
I really enjoy doing these fake articles because it allows me to experiment with a different type of writing. I know I'm not on the level of some of the better journalists out there, but I think my article is, at worst, passable (if you ignore typos). I didn't spend as much time on formatting here as I did with the Time piece, but I don't think it really detracts from the effect. In particular, I'm really proud of how the cover turned out.
So I guess, without further ado, here's what I came up with.

I fully intended to put the name captions within the article, but I got a little lazy. I hope it doesn't ruin anything for you all!
