Internet In Rage Over Halloween Costumes
The internet is the perfect place for people to research information, get in contact with friends and family, or waste time at work. Apparently, it is also the perfect place to let out your anger and totally flip out on people.
Halloween is coming, and you know what that means: Candy, booze, and costumes. Funny costumes, unique costumes, and of course…sexy costumes. Yes ladies, remember when you were 10 and wanted to dress as a fairy princess or a cheerleader? Well, you still do, except with a lot less fabric.
As Lindsay Lohan in the movie Mean Girls pointed out, “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” which as far as I’m concerned, holds completely true. Why? Because it’s a day to dress as what you normally would not dress as.
Apparently, the internet is in a goddamn rage over this. Articles such as this and this berate “slutty” costumes, citing them as everything from impractical to a step backwards for women’s rights. Impractical? I’m sorry, I wasn’t aware I was spending this Halloween in the snow, fighting off wolves. And everyone knows women’s rights are completely determined by what we wear. That’s what we were fighting for, the right to…not wear what we want to? It’s ridiculously more demeaning for one woman to even resort to calling another woman ‘slut’ or ‘tramp’ over her clothing. What happened to respecting personal style choice and even more, what happened to keeping your nose out of other people’s closets?
The problem that all these anti-slut-costume people see is that…oh wait, there is no problem. All it is, is pages of whiny bitches complaining about people wearing things that they don’t like. Seriously. There is not one goddamn legitimate reason to complain about slutty costumes on OTHER people. No one is making you wear a sexy costume.
Other complaints I’ve heard are along the lines of “If they can’t think of anything unique to wear then they are just dumb!” Oh, I’m sorry, I wasn’t aware I had to put effort into my Halloween costume. Afterall, it is just one day out the year that frankly isn’t worth it to dedicate hours to thinking up, designing, and putting together a unique costume.
Honestly internet rage people, if you are that worked up about what other people are wearing, just stay inside your home and don’t talk. No one wants to be friends with someone who criticizes someone else’s wardrobe for no other reason than they don’t like it.
