Good Girls Go Bad, for a Day

November 1, 2008

In her thigh-highs and ruby miniskirt, Little Red Riding Hood does not appear to be en route to her grandmother’s house. And Goldilocks, in a snug bodice and platform heels, gives the impression she has been sleeping in everyone’s bed. There is a witch wearing little more than a Laker Girl uniform, a fairy who appears to shop at Victoria’s Secret and a cowgirl with a skirt the size of a tea towel. They’re not just risking their dignity here. They’re risking frostbite.

It is a wonder gyms do not have “get in shape for Halloween” specials. However, many women see nothing wrong with making Halloween less about Snickers bars and SweeTarts and more about eye candy. Why have so many girls grown up to trade in Wonder Woman costumes for little more than Wonderbras? Many think that showing off their bodies is a mark of independence and security and confidence. But there’s a fine line between sexy and trashy.

Don’t get me wrong- I do look forward to Halloween every year. But I wish there were more sexy men’s costumes on the market. Is the lack of them but further evidence of the gender double standard? In clubs, most men just don’t even bother dressing up. They just sit and enjoy.

on another note, even if porn = halloween every day, here’s a suggestion for so-called  real halloween porn: http://www.dirtyhalloween.com/
