I wish girls would realize that self respect is way sexier than revealing costumes. And it can last for more than just one night.
While I agree that it sucks that all the costumes for women are automatically sexy wearing one doesn’t mean a girl doesn’t have self respect. There is nothing wrong with wearing a sexy costume and what people choose to wear doesn’t really say anything about that person.
Honestly, the children’s section of the Halloween store is the worst. Boys get aggressively themed costumes while girls are cast as cheerleaders and fairies. They advertise the costumes specifically for gender. They’re taught what is “correct” without even realizing it’s a lesson.
I don’t even really care what the content of the costume is, it’s the idea of teaching kids their “correct gender” at an early age that gets me.
