Librarian Halloween Beatdown

Last year I pointed out that my local Target was selling a semi-skanky (and of course, Highly Accurate) “Librarian” Halloween costume.

This became a popular post, and I inadvertently helped sell dozens more of the silly things.

To counteract this, and help bring the universe a bit more into alignment, here’s a charmingly
inflammatory comment on Yahoo! Answers in response to a woman looking for tips on building a librarian Halloween costume:

Yes, ladies (and believe me, in the eyes of the world you are ALL ladies, even the dudes) why desexualize yourself by dressing like a hideous old librarian for Halloween, when you can just step on down to Girls’s Costume Warehouse?

This year I’m going as Frog.

  1. That video reminds of the line in Mean Girls, “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”

    Slutty – scary – what’s the difference!

  2. Erica, I know you will appreciate this costume: an internet meme!

    I spent the whole night explaining what a lolcat is!

  3. That video is a riot. My mom and I were in the store today looking at all the costumes aimed at little girls that were essentially slutty versions of normal costumes – slutty cat, slutty princess, slutty witch, slutty pirate, and Cheetah Girl (just plain slutty). Horrifying.
