Huff Po Highlights the moral questions involved with slutty Halloween

I have always been surprised how girl react to Halloween. Normally reserved girls may suddenly dress up like vixen exposing more flesh in the middle of Autumn then they ever do at the height of summer. Beyond just the amount on show it surprises me how much much sexually suggestive and provocative content finds it way into to costumes. Now I do believe that for some girls they are choosing this style and may even find it freeing but my concern is the growing social pressure to conform to this pressure.

It is well established that media impacts young minds. I doubt that every young girl is happy in the costume they are finding themselves in. I do feel this issue highlights how sexism is still a strong undercurrent in culture with the expectations it places on women. I believe this is an example of how women are still expected to be sexual objects for men. Objects that must conform to specific pressures. Pressure that can degrade women and long lasting impacts on the self esteem of young people.

It may seem like an overreaction but do feel that the social pressure of Halloween costumes are having a negative impact on girls elf esteem.

I created this image to use as a discussion starter in my work, what do people think about it? I wanted to think about how gender equality is often present in attitudes towards oral sex, especially (but not always) by me.
