Halloween is when you are supposed to dress scary. Not sexy. The stereotypes of Halloween has turned girls into sluts and leaves guys to dress anyway that they wish.
“Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” Lindsay Lohan said during her role as Cady Heron in the movie “Mean Girls.”
Why is it that girls have the hall pass of dressing like sluts on Halloween and being able to get away with it. It is not fair to the girls who don’t want to dress this way and as if that they have to.
This year there are costumes for girls that are considered to be sexy, such as a being a sexy pizza. Since when is fast food that is unhealthy for you considered to be hot.
To me that is the stupidest idea for a costume, but I am sure that there will be some girls who will choose to wear that costume just because it is considered sexy.
I think that making girls think that they have to dress a certain way is sexist. Why do guys not have to dress sexy? They get to dress as they wish.
Guys who do choose to dress up for Halloween do not dress provocatively. They dress normally, like scary. They usually wear masks or dress as something funny. They are expected to do this, just like girls are expected to dress slutty.
If a girl was to dress scary or funny it would be considered weird for them to do so. People would look at them and think why is she dressed like that.
Girls should be able to wear what they want. Just like Cady Heron in Mean Girls, she dressed as scary bride and to most of the people at the party it was not a good choice for her to wear it. The girls at that party were dressed in tight, slutty outfits with animal ears on there heads.
Some girls do like the idea of dressing up like a slut on Halloween because they can get away with it. They find it fun to be able to expose themselves one night a year.
I feel that this is a big deal because girls are being taken advantage of by being told that it is okay to dress inappropriately.
Girls, this Halloween you should dress up differently and stand out. Show people that you do not have to dress up like a slut, and that you can dress up as something more seasonal and still look hot with out falling into the stereotypes that Halloween has made girls out to be.
I am not telling you how to dress on Halloween, but I am saying that you should not live down to the stereotypes and show that you are more then just a pretty girl who has to dress like a slut to be considered hot.
