Sexy Halloween Costumes for Kids???

resizeWhere were the outrage when I asked this question two years ago about putting toddlers in bikini’s and f-me pumps?  Now that they’ve expanded this to include Halloween costumes someone wants speak out about it?  It wasn’t cute then and it’s certainly not cute now.  Where is the self-esteem level that we are setting for our girls?  And why the in the hell is it so LOW???  Get it together parents.  It’s bad enough that as adult women we can’t come up with Halloween costumes that don’t involve being sexy or slutty.  Let’s try not to set the bar for our kids.

 

**Talking Point** Do you notice the difference between the boys costumes and the girls?  What do you think about that?

    That is truly nauseating. Here’s another thing that bothers me about it – pre-packaged costumes tend to be bought by parents who are so busy and stressed they don’t have time to put much thought into what statement their child’s costume is making. And those are the very kids who MOST need some positive parenting and educating about role models, sexualization, sterotypes etc. I really try not to take life in general too seriously, but these costumes are a menace.

      I hate how the boys costumes are those of upstanding community leaders and the girls are no more than sex objects. It really says a lot about how society views women in general and as parents fathers or mothers, we should shouldn’t stand for that. We all have daughters and we should all want more for them. Thanks for commenting.

    Some parents do not operate with a full deck. Confusing “cute” with “sexy” sends a very bad message to everyone, especially kids.

      The really sad part is that they have no idea what they are opening their children up to. I have a post on here titled “Babies are sexy too???” and you would not believe how many people find that post as an internet search. I know what they searching for and it’s sad.
