Young Female America Deliberates: Just How Sexy Should We Get for Halloween?

Dear Diary,

Geez. I just don’t know what I should be for Halloween!

I could be a sexy kitten. Kittens are so sexy after all, batting around string and flipping their tails like they do. And they bathe themselves. Guys like to think of girls in the bath, right?

Or…I could be, like, a sexy nurse! Yeah, that would be totally, way cool. Like, dress in a tight white dress and have my boobs sticking out. Not only would it be sexy, it would be, like, waaaaaay sexy. Plus, nurses are helpers, and guys like girls who will help them as they do stuff, right?

My brother is dressing up like a monster, and my other brother is dressing up like a werewolf. Sometimes I think, wow, it could be totally fun to dress up as something actually scary for Halloween.

But I don’t know if it would be, like…sexy, you know? And I think it’s pretty important to be sexy.

Maybe a sexy devil. Yeah! And devils are way naughty, and maybe if a boy sees me, he’ll think I’m naughty, and I’ll do naughty things! Plus red vinyl is, like, way sexy, totally.

I remember when I was a little girl, how I used to dress like Rainbow Brite. It was so much fun. I was a princess one year, too, and my mom made me a crown covered in tinfoil. It was spectacular. And I got a ton of candy, and I ate it all without worrying about getting fat.

My older cousin is always going on and on about the male gaze and girls objectifying themselves and something about an unfair double standard for women and blah blah blah. Please. She probably doesn’t even shave her legs.

Hmm…sexy sailor girl. Sexy policewoman. Sexy firefighter. Sexy witch!

I don’t know which one I’ll be, but I’ll tell you one thing. It’s gonna be sexy. After all, that’s what Halloween is all about. Being sixteen and sexy. Yeah. -- Jennifer Mathieu
