Picture this: It’s Halloween and you’ve thought of the best costume ever. You spent hours sewing and constructing that ghoulish zombie costume but when you step outside you notice that everyone’s half-naked with what is a poor excuse for a costume on the streets. Then you think: should you have bought that sexy cheerleader costume you saw at the store??

As a 20-something-year-old female I’ve done a lot of growing up the past few years and I have to say that Halloween has definitely turned from something that used to be fun and creative to a public display of sluttiness. Since when did it pass as a costume idea to run around in booty shorts and a bare midriff? Why is every costume you can find at the Halloween store a “sexy _____”? Why can’t I just be a regular referee or Little Red Riding Hood without being a sexy one?

Editor’s Note: I tried to look for sexy costumes with BLACK models and there weren’t any. SMH…

My guess is that many people feel Halloween for adults can’t just be about dressing up as something fun, we have to take it an extra step further. However, I feel that it shouldn’t just be women who have to fall into the slut trap. If women are pressured to be something attractive for the Day Of The Dead then men need to step up to the plate and dress up as a hunky firefighter or drop dead gorgeous policeman. Maybe if the fellas did try to be handsome when they dress up they’d have a better chance of hooking up with that cute Playboy bunny.

I don’t have a problem with women wanting to be sexy for Halloween but there’s a fine line between being cute and walking down the street ass-naked. Remember, what you conceal can be more sexy than what you reveal and if you look like a ho then you’re going to be treated like a ho. Is that what you really want?
