I No Longer Care What You Dress Up As For Halloween.

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.

  1. what I don’t get is why women feel the need to make Halloween sexy in the first place, as if it is a free day to dress like a slut without being labeled a slut… Halloween is supposed to be about the scare factor, not letting everyone and their brother see your parts

  2. I think it’s exciting to think someone feels so passionately about defending their skunk costume that they would take the time to hate you and write that they hate you. Hats off to that kind of commitment. But I have to wonder, if you feel so intensely the love for the sexy skunk, do you wear it for the rest of your life? And, though I know you’ve moved on from judging the sexy skunk, is there an age limit? Can I pull off the sexy skunk look well into my 40’s, 50’s or even 60’s?

  3. Ha! I’m always amazed when people take anything on a humor blog so seriously. You know what I’m sayin’? It’s like a punch in the gut getting comments like that!

    Now if you’ll excuse me. I need to put the finishing touches on my sexy chipmunk costume.

  4. “Buffy: It’s just … You’re never gonna get noticed if you keep hiding! You’re missing the whole point of Halloween.
    Willow: Free candy?
    Buffy: It’s “come as you aren’t” night! The perfect chance for a girl to get sexy and wild, with no repercussions.
    Willow: Oh, I don’t get wild. Wild on me equals spaz.”
