As I’m sitting here on my couch with a Cup of Noodles in my hand and looking ghoulish from being sick it got me thinking, Halloween costumes. So, I googled “Halloween Costumes”…well I’m no prude but why are all the costumes sexually driven. Do women use this night of dressing-up as an excuse to dress slutty? These costumes must sell, as every year I see them at costume stores. Sure, its fun to be sexy but when does it go over board and become slutty? One stereotype is the slutty flight attendant; since I actually am a flight attendant I can attest that after a long flight the last thing I look like is anywhere near sexy or slutty. If anything I might look a bit dowdy. But yes, I get it, playing off the stereotypes of certain jobs is part of the fun of dressing-up.
But is this the right message for young women to be sending out? What are your thoughts?
