How would I describe Slutty Halloween Costumes to Jack Skellington? Imagine if you accidentally opened the door to Halloweentown, and a bunch of spring break sorority girls flooded in. Yep, Jack Skellington just gained a brand new bone.
Halloween was originally a day to remember the dead, and some say that the costumes we dawn are meant to memorialize those that have passed. Apparently, women believe that most people that have passed away enjoyed showing off skin. A lot. But hey, who are we to say that they didn’t?
There are those that would argue these costumes are degrading to women, but I’m not sure their argument holds any more water than a slutty bride costume could soak up. In fact, I would argue that these costumes are in fact promoting self-confidence to the women who wear them. A degrading costume is something that is meant to put down and/or shame someone, where as these women not only choose to wear them, they are showing pride in their bodies and confidence in themselves by doing it. In today’s age of body shaming (not just for being big, but also for being thin) it is actually pretty powerful and refreshing to see a girl rocking a slutty costume and showing she is proud of her body. Plus, it may help her find her future husband…I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to talking to the slutty bride.
But slutty costumes aren’t just limited to women, they make plenty of them for men as well. Although I will admit that they tend to garner a different response…typically laughter. *sigh* face it guys, girls have it way easier when it comes to turning on the opposite sex. But at least you tried– and gave us a laugh. and for that we thank you.
So in the end, I have to give two big CENSORED up to slutty female costumes, and one corner-of-the-mouth-smile up to slutty male costumes. and hope to see a lot more of them in the upcoming days.
