Jill Sobule on Halloween Costumes

I can’t say that I agree with my favorite folk singer, Jill Sobule, on this one–I’m all in favor of folks (especially women)(especially women who aren’t my daughters) dressing up sexy. I’ve been trying for years to get my wife to rock something hot on halloween, but no dice–she’s got all this pesky dignity and nagging self-esteem.

Living in a university town, the “weekend” (now Wednesday night through Sunday) around Halloween is always an “oh brave new world” type of visual experience. Still…

The thing about “sexy halloween costumes” is that the concept can go horribly wrong in what seems like a blink of the eye.

And in the other side of the  “careful what you wish for” department…click here at your own risk especially if you’re inclined towards feminism.  I know a couple of angry vegetarians who will ridicule me just for posting the link, but these are funny from the right perspective.

But for the sake of gender equity and fairness to oppositely oriented folks, as well as those who favor a relatively balanced mix of sex and violence….

About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
