At some point in time, probably a long time before I actually realized it, Halloween stopped being a kid’s holiday and became a holiday adopted by legions of emotionally stunted, self-obsessed women with very, very low self-esteem.
These women have taken what is essentially a holiday that is meant to bring out the inner-child in us all, where we can temporarily believe in ghosts, goblins and all the things that go bump in the night, and turned it into a erotic ball where they can showcase just how far they will go for attention. It’s less Halloween than Holloween. I was looking around for interesting costume ideas and 90% of the costumes for women had the word SEXY in front of them… SEXY Nurse, SEXY Vampire, SEXY Catwoman… FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, how low does your self esteem have to be to want people to validate your appearance even on a day in which you are supposed to be someone else?
Show me a woman wearing a costume that needs the word SEXY in front of its name and I’ll show you a woman who probably isn’t and probably wouldn’t ever be considered sexy in her own right. It just screams of low self opinion and its just sad. Sad in ways that really irritate me.
