Way cooler than a ‘sexy Care Bear’ costume.

..or whatever else the corporate hacks are peddling to us these days. There’s a seemingly endless parade of ‘sexy’ Halloween costumes marketed to women – sexy fishmonger! sexy polar bear! sexy beekeeper! sexy sexbot!

Which isn’t to say that there’s anything wrong with sexy Halloween costumes. There isn’t; I’m just annoyed by the uninspired, gender-normative (i.e. you’ll probably never see any ads for a ‘sexy’ Charlie Chaplin costume) selections fobbed off on women around Halloween.

This is cooler!

Plenty of the costume ideas are also hotter than any of the interchangeable “Sexy ___” selections in stores.

Josephine BakerĀ  (costume looks simple enough, though one might have trouble finding the leopard.):

 

Some of the costume ideas almost tempt me to dress up for Halloween this year, something I never really got to do as a child.

Poverty’s always the most amusing to people who don’t have to experience it. Continue reading

“a safer watering hole”

Because I value your time more than Scott Adams apparently does, here is a short summary of this article (and, by extension, basically every MRA screed ever penned) to spare you the tedium.:

Rape accusations are overblown, but men are genetically-programmed to be testosterone-crazed, butt-humping fuckbots. However, all these shrill, castrating feminazis are meanies for castigating men as testosterone-crazed, butt-humping fuckbots. Also, chicks only like hugs, not fucking. Fucking is for testosterone-crazed, butt-humping fuckbots.

(These statements may then be followed with garbled arguments resembling the ‘Evolutionary Psychology 101’ class notes of a lonely, sexually-frustrated male undergrad. Insert clumsy metaphor about apex predators and cute little herbivorous prey here.)
