Ahh, the joys of being a woman and shopping for a Halloween costume.

Luckily, this Halloween season I am broke will create a costume from my own closet. Before I realized I was low on cash I wanted to be Wonder Woman. I usually try to make my own costume from scratch, but life has been nuts and I figured I would buy a costume. Surprisingly, the pre-made Wonder Woman costumes were more conservative than the original Carter costume.

Classic Wonder Woman

Modern & surprisingly not slutty Wonder Woman

When I saw this, for some stupid reason, I thought that maybe, just maybe, female costumes were finally losing their slut appeal. I understand the whole “flaunt it if you got it” thing, but isn’t Halloween supposed to be about all things scary not all things slutty?

I continued to look through costume ideas online thinking I may stumble upon a cheap find or get some inspiration. I considered being a sailor. I have been a Sailor Scout, but why not try to be an actual sailor. How can that be sexy. Well, this is how:

Sailor Slut

Maybe the model forgot to put on her top…

Then I considered being a Hogwart’s student. I have business casual clothes that could work and I wouldn’t be hanging out of my costume. I mean, only a pedophile would sex-ify Hogwart’s, right? Oh wait, I spoke to soon:

Horny at Hogwart's

Something is not right when your cape is bigger than your skirt. Just sayin…

My love of ewoks was recently destroyed by a slutty costume as well. I tried to find a photo online, but apparently this was a homemade costume. I give the girl props for that, but the fact she barely resembled an ewok overshadowed that. She had the furry ears and the hood and that was where the similarities ended. I am pretty sure ewoks did not wear bikini tops, mini skirts and uggs. Thank you to the girl that has forever tainted my view of ewoks.

Once again, it seems like we have forgotten the true meaning of a holiday. I guess seeing slutty versions of certain people can be scary, but is it really necessary? Nevertheless, I do love Halloween and I won’t let this slut parade ruin my favorite holiday.

Once again, another broad has blown my mind. You think the term broad is derogatory? Well, my apologies, but as a woman I feel that dressing unprofessionally in the workplace is “broad-ish” and gives women as a whole a bad reputation. Need a visual aid? Let’s examine this photo of sportscaster Ines Sainz below:

How to dress like a broad in the workplace

Okay, maybe I was being harsh and showing that much midriff and wearing jeans that are painted on is a common practice. HA, HA- I kid, I kid. Apparently, Sainz wore her “fashionable” attire to conduct some interviews with the Jets. Much to her surprise players made advances on her and she was the victim of “rude vocabulary” and now she hopes the NFL takes appropriate action.

Hmm…let me think about this. An attractive woman in revealing clothing shows up to conduct interviews with a group of, presumably, testosterone teeming athletes and she is surprised by the rowdy behavior of the men. Where is the logic in this? Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying it is okay for men to harass scantily clad women, but I am saying that as a woman you should be aware that dressing so easily welcomes that type of attention.  AND you should especially NOT dress like that for your PROFESSION. You are expected to be PROFESSION-AL- i.e. keeping it classy ladies. Now if you were going booty shaking in the club that would be appropriate attire.

I understand that women have come a long way in regards to their rights, but this does not mean we should be running around showing off our goods in a professional setting. That, my friends, is the fastest way to loose all that respect we have gained.

I do give Sainz some credit. Since this incident, and a Today Show interview with her girls busting out, she is now claiming she never felt she was “attacked. Hopefully she realized she was being a dumb broad about the situation and that maybe she should put some clothes on.
