io9: Kids dressing up as Harley Quinn is “gross”

So apparently little girls should not dress up as Harley Quinn for Holloween because it “grosses out” some people, people like Evan Narcisse writer at io9. Can I just say for.fuck.sake! Holloween is not about dressing up as your role model, Holloween is about playing dress up about fantasy and having fun. When someone slips into a costume especially kids do you really think they are pondering what morals the character they are dressing up as represents in society and in entertainment? No! Repeat after me wanting to wear a certain costume does not mean that you view that fictional character as a role model. I want to dress up as Predator for Holloween next year, does that mean I look up to a mass murdering alien as a role model? No!

grosses-outI will be sure to tell Darth Vader, The Grimm Reaper, and the various vampires when they come knocking at my door. That is why adults like Evan Narcisse should stay far away from things like Holloween and just let kids be kids. And let’s be honest if we are going to start drawing the moral line then Vampires and other monsters aren’t the best role models either. If he ever has kids, I take it he will only allow them to dress up Nobel peace prize winners. Have fun kids! And strange how we see people taking issue with girls wanting to be Harley Quinn but when boys want to dress up as Wolverine or Deadpool who by the way are both as fucked up as Harley Quinn no one of these people bats an eyelid. It smells of double standards and hypocrisy to me…

[Editorial Note:] I did not get the memo that kids need to dress up as role models for Holloween. Dress up your kids as a serial killer, a witch or a devil, or one of his many demons slaves. No problem! But dress up your little girl as Harley Quinn? THINK OF THE CHILDREN! Save your outrage Evan Narcisse, the children (little girls) will be just fine.

    Reblogged this on RACCOON DADDY : Father, Husband, FAMILY, and Gaming and commented:
    I think the REAL concern here is HOW the kid is being dressed up! Kids at a certain age shouldn’t be dressing up as Suicide Squad Harley with and hot pants that show almost everything! Parents have to do their job and police their own kids. Boys AND girls.
    Trust me, when my daughter is 15 or 16 she is gonna attempt to push the envelope with wearing sexier and more revealing attire. It’s mine and my wife’s job to ensure she doesn’t going out trying to attract the wrong attention. Same goes, if she’s dressed up like Ted Bundy or a clown with a REALISTIC prop shotgun.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for self-expression and personal freedom and expression!
    Personally, I feel the American culture views violence in a lesser light than sexuality and as Americans we’re sexually repressed.
    Regardless, it all comes down to their jobs right and NOT BEING LAZY ABOUT IT!!!!

      Honestly I haven’t seen a single girl (kid) dress up in hot pants, and most parents wont allow that in any case. So that point of the argument is pretty invalid.

  2. Ah, yes, Evan Narcisse, the man who wrote a long-ass tirade about the lack of realistic hair for black people in video games. Truly a man of our age.
