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.
Reminder to everyone that it’s cooling down and winter is on it’s way, which means people with seasonal depression / SAD associated with cold and winter are going to start showing symptoms. Remember to support your friends instead of shrugging it off as something that “happens every year”
MARVEL NOW! — (ONGOING) SOLO FEMALE TITLES
It’s 3:30 in the morning and I’ve had this au/headcanon that Mabel discovers she’s gifted in the Craft and starts to learn different spells and incantations but she’s having to learn on her own cause she doesn’t really know any other witches (the hand witch doesn’t count) so she sort of only knows how to levitate junk and talk to her familiar Waddles. I may start a mini comic on this idk yet
Head canon: Pacifica never cared for Mabel, but she did care that Dipper never cared to notice her and try to win her affections. She tries to be nicer to Mabel and tries to make him one of her many admirers but Dipper gives zero craps and just kind of reads the journal. Pacifica just falls for him and he doesn’t care
