What Sucks...The Flapper Costume


Ladies, for Halloween this year let’s put the 1920’s Flapper costume to sleep.

You have so many choices of what you can be- a sexy nurse, sexy cat, sexy pirate wench, sexy witch, sexy devil, sexy school-girl, belly-dancer or gypsy.

You can be a sexy Tarzan wife, sexy Pocahontas, sexy French maid, sexy Maryann and/ or Ginger, sexy Jailbird, sexy Raggedy Ann (I’ve seen it) or Wonder Woman.

You can break new ground and go as Shakira, Jessica Beil or even, if you’re a fan of more obscure costumes, Kathleen Turner from Body Heat.

Why chose to be a 1920’s, a-sexual, anti-prohibition, hair in a bob, girdle wearing, cigarette holder smoking, Charleston dancing Flapper? That’s definitely not the cat's pajamas.


One of many possibilities.



Or honor our ancestor, the cavewoman.

A WHAT-SUCKS CLASSIC (ahem, repeat)! HAPPY HALLOWEEN

I'm going to try and say this in the nicest way possible but frankly your sexist attitude sucks.

I totally agree that the flapper costume sucks and that its a total copout but why can't we girls go as vampires, swamp monsters or hell demons? Why do we have to go as something "sexy"? Isn't Halloween meant to be spooky not sexy?

I'm sure that you didn't intend to offend your female readers and that you're not any kind of awful misogynistic bastard but frankly the emphasis on women having to be sexy for Halloween sucks.

Sorry to be so blunt but sexism sucks.

Sexy swamp monsters? Just kidding. You have to admit, other than the flapper, there are a lot of "sexy" female costumes out there- in researching, I think I even saw a "sexy Lynne Cheney" which is hard to pull off. Didn't mean to offend just exaggerate, and to some extent, encourage but you're right sexism does suck.

Am female, not offended. Although the "sexy" costume pisses me off too. Unless of course it's a sexy dwarf. I heard someone suggest such and thought it brilliant. Halloween is the greatest holiday with the most potential for controversy and you want us to waste it all on retarded sexyware? How about a sexy prom queen who gave birth in the bathroom and then went back to her prom? I sported that one three years ago. I hope it offends someone, I truly do. As it didn't seem to when I was wearing it.
