Jennifer Lawrence attends ELLE’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I’m way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I’m really hyper, most likely because I’ve been drinking, and I can’t not photo-bomb somebody if it’s a good opportunity. But it’s something I always tell myself: ‘You need to calm the fuck down. You don’t want to constantly be a GIF.’

Well may we say “God save the Queen”, because nothing will save the Governor-General

"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 work at a halloween store and have been pointing this out to coworkers, as well as getting into discussions with moms and dads about this all year (really, for the past four years, but it has actually gotten worse).

We did a count and we only had two little girls costumes that weren’t a dress/skirt.  Costumes like pikachu, cat, cop, firefighter, powerranger ALL are turned into little dresses that barely look anything like they are supposed to.

It is sad and scary. Make your own costume.

It really is getting worse. I would buy the boy’s costumes for little girls if I wasn’t able to make my own. But it’s really fun and often cheap to make your own.
