Super Stores Offering “Naughty” Halloween Costumes for Young Girls
It’s that time of year again, and every super store you walk into has Halloween decorations up and two or three aisles dedicated to Halloween. Halloween has always been about getting dressed up and enjoying the festivities. For adults, we may enjoy a costume party, but the holiday is for the kids. Getting dressed up and going trick or treating to get candy. So why are super stores selling “naughty” outfits for young girls?
Super stores have started carrying a “Naughty Leopard” toddler costume and a “Devil Diva” suit for very young girls. Since when has Halloween costumes become more about being sexual instead of scary? Children grow up fast enough, it seems society is trying to make them grow up even quicker. Society and the media have put extreme pressure on young girls. I thought most of these pressures came in the later years of elementary school or middle school, not the early years of life.
I like to think that I’m in the majority on this one: I feel it’s obvious what they are trying to do. I know we live in a world that “Toddlers and Tiaras” is a running reality show that actually gets decent ratings, but when do we put our foot down and say that enough is enough?
The Naughty Leopard costume was spotted in a the store, but appears to not be available on the retail store’s website. However, the Devil Diva outfit is for sale online for $23.97.
Do you think that the super store missed the mark on this one? Is it the parents choice what costume they want their daughter dressed in?
