But you can have fun without looking slutty and/or sleazy.
And you can have fun looking like a ****/sleaze too. Doesn't bug me either way. The question is why it bothers you how random strangers express themselves.

I don't think I've ever seen such a close poll. This is the first time I checked that it hasn't been exactly even, and it's still close at 27/25. I don't think there will be any agreement.

Enough with the slutty attire and lets get back to what Halloween is supposed to be.
Begging strangers for candy?

For a "religious" or "kid friendly" event, NOPE; but for a fun night at an adults only party, why not?
Just out of curiousity, do you ever take your kids to the beach? They'll see far more there than on Hallowe'en.

Misogyny alert. So much sexism in America.

I have no problem with anything a man or woman wants to wear so long as it complies with local laws. Although, some of those laws are sexist and outdated. They should still be complied with until they are repealed.

At our yearly Halloween party we just have one friend in the bunch who always comes in an extremely revealing, "sexy" costume. She looks very out of place and always seems miffed that she's the only one who "went there" with her costume. She acts surprised that none of the other women go that route. But I'm not surprised she dresses that way for Halloween. She is very conformist / brainwashed by our culture. She has received the message loud and clear that womens' only purpose is to look "sexy" and she subscribes to the Mean Girls philosophy of Halloween being a night for girls to dress like "sluts".

... your point again is what?
