'Sexy teen Halloween costumes: What's a parent to do?'


"What's most disturbing is that girls have much less choice when they go to the costume store to be seen as anything other than a physical object. The only way they can dress up for Halloween is as something that reveals their body. A boy can be a pirate with baggy pants, an eye patch, a sword and a parrot on his shoulder, The costume matches the character. With the girl, the pirate is wearing a short skirt. As a superhero, she's wearing a short skirt. And my favorite is Cookie Monster with a short skirt. Every costume becomes about the physicality of the body it reveals, not about the characteristics of the character being impersonated."

My solution would be to ignore this depressing, demonic celebration of evil and death completely. But then, I'm a party pooper like that.

As for slutty costumes, if a parent pays for it, then they shouldn't complain.
