Dear my local news channel:

I'd like to discuss your take on popular Halloween costumes.  I can see why you'd say men favor the Batman and Michael Jackson costumes.  They're certainly popular.  But to say that women favor the sexy nurse and sexy barmaid completely misses the fact that there are no other kinds of costumes made available to women.  They are all some version of sexy

Yes, there are many women who love to dress sexy for Halloween, and that's perfectly fine, but don't generalize saying that women favor sexy costumes, because finding one that isn't sexy is damn near impossible.  And extremely frustrating to attempt.

I'm actually glad Halloween will be over soon.  Which fucking sucks because this is my favorite time of year. 

A woman who will be decidedly not sexy.

I know. I'm fucking sick of it. It's not fair that men get to have a variety of costumes--be funny, be scary, be clever, be political, etc. while all the women only get is SEXY.
