In 2007 I wrote about Halloween costumes for girls being too revealing. I would have hoped that in the four years since then, parents would have taken over and said that's enough.
Sadly, what I am seeing is the exact opposite. While we make our costumes, the kids and I of course like to browse the Halloween aisles of the stores. Each year, the skirts and dresses get shorter and the looks get a bit more outrageous than the last.
Why is it that some people (apparently many people, if you go by the number of costumes designed this way) feel the need to oversexualize young girls? Why do costumes for seven-year-olds or even teenagers need to be sexy?
I can understand why some adults would want those kind of costumes? But why do these looks exist for kids? Am I alone in the thought that these costumes are over the top?
Apparently not, as Andrew Riggio explored the topic in relation to teens earlier this year. Are teen girl Halloween costumes too sexy?
The results of a Web search on child and teen costumes or a visit to the store for the same may scare you, as it did me.
Please end the purchase and sale of sexy costumes for those under 18. I find it sad that I even have to ask.
