|Some costumes for sale at a local grocery store.|
These days, girls are apparently dressing as Candy the Slutty Ghost.
If not some ridiculously pink and frilly princess, girls have few options from purchased costumes that aren't a miniature adult version of what a woman would wear to a Halloween party with the singular goal of getting laid.
Is it too much to ask that a vampire costume for a girl not include a red lace corset? Or a devil costume to include pants?
It's an adult concept that sex is part of the whole dark fantasy of a creature who can suck the life out of you, or that lust is a sin that can undo the saintliest of saints.
It's scary that young girls are parading around in these concepts and getting Snickers and suckers.
This makes me an old fuddy duddy, right? I suppose I'm rather fortunate that I have boys. Else I'd be spending all night on Oct. 30 trying to make a homemade costume appropriate for a young girl.
