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.
