About 10 years ago the Onion listed the top 10 Halloween Costumes for Women Ages 24-36, and they were: sexy nurse, sexy devil, sexy angel, sexy schoolgirl, sexy maid, sexy nun… it was at that moment that I decided I would never dress up as one of those stupid things, and that my costumes would always reflect an attempt (at least) to be creative, unique, strong and smart. I’ve dressed as the Economy, the Girl With A Pearl Earring, the 12 steps… this year I’m going to be the Arab Spring.
I encourage all men to fight against gender bias by dressing as sexy stuff for Halloween. It’s easy, just decide what you want to be, then modify it so that you’re wearing short shorts. Last year I dressed as “Sexy Orville Redenbacher”, and it was a hit. I fought against patriarchy and got several compliments on my ass. You’re welcome, society.
