Sexy Costume Wearhouse

Halloween is approaching, and while it is usually a day of fun and farce, I cannot help but point out that many of the costumes for women reinforce the notion of "women as sex objects" instead of "women dressing up to be whatever they opted to dress up as that day." My sister commented on this briefly last Halloween, but I think the issue is just getting worse and worse.

This year, I have found a great parody of the "sexing up" of Halloween for women. Give it a view. And then be mustard for Halloween. And not of the sexy mustard variety, either.

Anyone else notice the name of the store? "Girls's." Someone must have slept through the class on appropriate use of possessives. Either that or he was dreaming up sexy costumes for girls.

I love it! It's about time this disturbing trend came to light.
