"The hyper-sexualization of little girls and their bodies, as a mother, really bothers me. It plays into the sexualization of their bodies into their teenager years and adult life. It makes them grow up faster than they need to. Let them be little girls, have fun, be able to play in the playground and not worry about going on the monkey bars because someone’s going to see their underwear. Something like this constricts their movements, which affects the way they play."Jenny Reid, a volunteer firefighter with Langford Fire Rescue, says the costume is not only offensive to women in her field, it’s also damaging to the self-esteem of little girls.
"That costume is awful and it sends the wrong message," she says. "It reinforces that there are still jobs that are off-limits to women. It’s not a representation of the real job. Little girls can do whatever they want. They shouldn’t be restricted. Those types of costumes put so many limitations on them. They don’t build the self-esteem and confidence you need to be a firefighter or police officer." " [x]

I don’t know why there can’t just be one unisex costume for little kids. When I was little and wanted to dress like a dinosaur, I wanted to look like a dinosaur, not wear some frilly little dress with a picture of a T-Rex on it.It’s like even on Halloween when you’re told that you can be whatever you want, little girls are still given the message that they have to abide by society’s standards of what’s for girls and how girls “should” look. They’re costumes of police officers and firefighters aren’t taken seriously so they subconsciously learn that they won’t be taken seriously in those career fields so why bother. They’re just an ornament for decoration


Studies show that gendered marketing sells more products, because a person who associates a product as being specifically catered to them personally will be more interested in it.  It’s disgusting that these sexist double standards exist for small kids, and the adults who make these products and the parents who purchase them are both to blame for it.

Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit.
