Real Talk

10.28.2012

It's time for real talk ladies. 
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Really, how could it not be? It involves a comatose amount of candy. However there is a recent Halloween tradition that seriously irks me. 

The "sexy" halloween costume. 

Basically you can take anything, add the word sexy, shed a lot of clothes, and that is your costume. I have actually seen a sexy watermelon before... fo real. A sexy watermelon? C'mon girls. It's no different this Halloween as my Facebook news-feed explodes with basically naked girls in their Halloween "costumes."

What I would like to see is women representing with their minds and not with their bodies. I would like to see more creatively thought out costumes that legitimately make me laugh. I would like to see women portraying themselves as smart, educated women like I know they are. I would like to see more girls respecting themselves instead of falling into the peer pressure that is aimed at filling this role as a sex object. You are more than that. Believe it.

That is my designated rant for the year.

Hear, hear, my friend. I am so totally with you on this one! I'm not even looking at photos on Facebook for that very reason. I can't deal.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm going as a fully-clothed lawn gnome. :)

Happy Halloween. xx
