Thoughts on Halloween

I have mixed feelings about Halloween. A fun night for children to dress up and collect candy from neighbors has turned into an occasion for grown women to dress like slutty, slut, sluts. In addition to cheesy porn-starlet-esque choices like sexy convict and pirate's wench, a gal looking for something a little more fetching to a Roman Polanski type is also available...I mean who, but a child rapist, wouldn't find a schoolgirl sexy or what about Little Red Riding Hood?

Be honest with yourself...why are you dressing like a prostitute? Does it empower you to wear a cheap costume made of synthetics assembled in a third-world or communist country...I'll bet it does, especially if paired with a nice pair of thigh-high pleather boots...YOU GO GIRL. The thing is, I doubt it.

You are sexy...just as you are. If you do decide to dress up...wear something age appropriate, that you'd be comfortable matter who you might run in to. Still not convinced? Imagine a creepy pervert, who may or may not be a sex offender, ogling your goodies.

Happy Halloween!


  1. I was with you until you didn't link the thigh-high pleather boots comment to anything. Now I just feel used.

  2. I think we crossed the Rubicon when wedding dresses started being sexy.

    Wasn't too long ago that most gowns had sleeves and didn't show much cleavage.

    Tossing one's pearls before swine is now a national pasttime. Hooray for us.

  3. I don't think I'm a creepy perv' but it is definitely fun to ogle the goodies. I mean ... that is why they're on display, right? So, speak poorly of the Pirate Wench or look down on the Sexy Convict if you must; so long as you remember there is obvioulsy a reason the costumes are so successful.

    The real question is ... what are you going to be for Halloween?

  4. I agree witht the sentiment here. Although Halloween can be fun and good for children, there is certainly a downside. Just found your site, could you follow mine too?
