Our society is repressed when it comes to sex, and because of that repression we become confused as to what is actually appropriate or not. I fully endorse slutting it up for Halloween. I think adults going out and playing, flirting and basically shedding inhibitions is important for a multitude of reasons including the very simple that it just feels great. As I have written before, I am also fortunate to live in a city with a secondary event where sexual repression is shed and that is during our Calgary Stampede. These are great events where the inner slut can come to play in a more public forum, shedding inhibitions with little to no judgement. However, we have made a small mistake in our quest for fun, and that is in not keeping the sluttiness for adults alone.
Sex is for adults, sexual behavior is for adults, sluts are for adults. Short skirts, knee high socks and mocked cleavage are not appropriate for our children. I have heard a couple of times Dan Savage tearing strips out of parents who are trying to be GGG (good, giving and game) when it comes to raising children. And guess what? This is not appropriate behavior. Dressing your children up to show excess skin, or to display sex appeal is not the way to show your sexual openness. It is outright crazy. Adult behavior and actions are for adults and not for our children. I cannot see any well rounded parent handing their 8 year old a joint and saying here, just a taste. And yet when I go to costume shops I see an endless array of slutty, tight fitting costumes for girls ages 8 and up. The manufacturers produce these because there is a demand, and I am perplexed as to why there could possibly be any demand at all.
