One time, a long time ago, I wrote a post about how I thought a sexy skunk costume was ridiculous because, despite Pepe Le Pew’s best efforts, I don’t think you can make skunks sexy. I just don’t.
I’m typically a “you do you” type of non-judgy person, but I guess I came across as really judgy in that post because I have gotten (and continue to get) a lot of “You don’t get it because you’re a bitch” comments, and on the other end of the spectrum but not really, “Oh yeah? Well I love that costume and you’re a bitch” comments.
Obviously, I have found those well reasoned comments very compelling because I’m writing this post to say that I no longer care what you dress as for Halloween. You do you.
So, the next time I see a sexy skunk costume, I’m going to assume the wearer is a sexually empowered grown-up version of Flower from Bambi. And I can support that.
Happy Halloween y’all.
