    Reminds me of drag queen "reading", I can see me saying this kind of thing to my mates and vice versa, we show love by insulting each other. Maybe it's a gay/British thing, but I laughed.

Saddest picture I've seen so far

More Feminism. Less Bullshit.

For the fourth time . . .

Dress codes have less to do with sexy than with social order. They are like sumptuary laws, frequently, unconsciously or not, designed to protect a sexist, frequently racist and homophobic status quo and kids know it. This is absolutely brilliant, and perfect for the school board and administrators.

Silly to sexy. The sexualization and adultification of children's costumes

  • Princess Cinnamon

    I don't see a problem with most of these costumes. I don't get why it's considered sexy or inappropriate for little girls to show their arms, legs, and bellies. Some of them do look a little adult but mostly, they're just normal kids' costumes.

  • Princess Cinnamon

    I'm not disagreeing with the article, I just think the photos were poor examples. I've seen sexier kids costumes than those at the Halloween store. It's ridiculous to say a little girl's costume is inappropriate because she's not completely covered from head to toe.
