"We quickly located a firefighter costume for boys, complete with a bright red jacket, a traditional helmet and an axe. The girls’ version, on the other hand, is a skin-tight, short, shiny dress that’s surely flammable. It includes a fascinator (in lieu of a helmet) never before seen on a real firefighter.

The model on the package, who looks to be about the same age as my daughter, completes the outfit with heeled, calf-high boots — not ideal for running into burning buildings, or trick-or-treating for that matter. The costume is for children four to six and it’s one of several provocative costumes for the age group.

Even the pumpkin costume for preschoolers is sexy: it’s sleeveless and features a black bodice with an orange ribbon that laces up the front like a corset. I found the girls’ firefighter and the police officer costumes the most offensive, as they hung on the rack in stark contrast to the boys’ versions.

What kind of message do these costumes send to our girls? While the boys have costumes that look like the real thing, girls are expected to dress up in spoof ensembles, thus suggesting they can’t, or shouldn’t, do the real job. The costumes are not only “sexy,” they’re also sexist."

monosexuals:

femininity is sooo intertwined w capitalism too like if you needed more proof that its not harmless. There are billion dollar industries built on making women feel like shit. And these companies are all owned by men. These men make money off us and then tell us we arent good enough so that they can make more money off us. 

you know that phrase “being a woman is expensive”? thats not an accident.

  • People: Like no offense to asexuals or anything but I'm afraid of new sexualities coming in and making the LGBTQIAP+ longer.
  • Asexual: Oh! Use MOGAI! It stands for Marginalized Orientations, Gender Alignments, and Intersex. It's more inclusive, sounds cute, and I don't think it'll get longer!
  • People: And now even aromantic people are trying to get in on this? Like "A is for asexuals and aromantics, not allies". Soon it'll have to be LGBTQIAAP+! Oh yeah. Forgot agender! AAAP.
  • Aromantic: We don't want to inconvenience you with our presence. That's why we already came up with a solution. Can you please switch to MOGAI?
  • People: If only there was a way that we could be inclusive and not have to say a mouthful....
  • Pansexual: *CHEERS MAKING LOUD NOISES* MOGAI!!!
  • Person: I guess we may never know....
