I don't think people are hating on sexy so much as hating on the sexualization of girls.  And little girls don't need to be exploring their sexuality.  Some things are taboo for a reason.

I think this is a great discussion and a thread full of fabulous comments.  I blogged it and quote StixandStones and MandyLikesPie.

I don't mind the sexy costumes, but it seems every year the stores are stocking fewer alternatives.  Sexy costumes are great when it's appropriate for the concept.  The Bettie Page nearly got me, naughty nurse/teacher/etc and other fantasies can be funny for the cheese factor.  Sexy Queen Elizabeth is a bit ridiculous.  It is also a little insulting to see traditional clothing made into ho-wear (can't believe someone felt the need to ho up the dirndl).  Overall, it just exhausts the sexy theme.  You can be sexy without your T+A out for all to see.  Look at 60's cat woman!

I have to say that today I went to the local party store and saw some Hannah Montana outfits, but otherwise the costume choices were all pretty tame.  I loved the big yellow mustard squirt bottle costume for a medium sized kid. 

I got my daughter a mouse nose and my son a fake mustache.  Son is going to go as a mortgage broker offering variable rate mortgages in exchange for candy.  Either that or 1970's Burt Renyolds.

  Wow can I relate, I hate those costumes soooo much, one year I dressed up as the grim reaper (not sexy reaper, scary reaper) and only danced with girls ( I asked with the reaper like finger curl) they all thought I was a guy until I took off the robe hahahahahahah!  they all crapped their pants!

to each his or her own opinion. no one should have to feel bad or apologize for the way they feel or for what they think. no one directly called you anything, so for you to take offense is ridiculous. you wear what you want and we will all feel how we do.

    Ho-bag outfits for young girls are just wrong and if adult women want to objectify themselves they can go the hell ahead but why are the rest of us presented with ONLY the whore option- I for one am not interested!

  Heres an idea someone could wear skimpy grey clothing spray their hair grey and go as an ash-ho read it out loud a coupla times you'll laugh!

  Edited cause previous comment I was replying to has been removed and I sounded like I was insane or something!

I don't have any problem whatsoever with adults who want to dress sexy on halloween. I agree that
homemade costumes are much better but not every one has the time to make a costume. No, the costume in a bag thing is not very original but I think they are all very cute. I find it pretty messed up that half of you called me a whore or a ho bag. Just because I can pull off something like that doesn't make me a whore and it doesn't mean I look like one either. I thought this was a board for halloween crafts, not insulting people's costumes.

If you're going to get nitpicky, we said "ho-IN-a-bag" and not "ho bag."
Besides that fact, nobody was talking about you.

What exactly does it mean that someone can "pull off" a skimpy costume.  That doesn't suddenly make it not skimpy.   Huh
