Halloween Is a Pedophile's Dream

Forget Halloween being for kids -- Halloween is for pedophiles who enjoy seeing our little girls half naked and dressed up like whores.

Radical Mommy: Gone are the days when little girls threw on long skirts and headscarves and hit the Halloween candy trail dressed as gypsies. Nowadays, little girls want to look sexy, and they're being allowed (by their idiot parents) to wear belly-baring shirts, micro-mini skirts, and fishnets -- and that is as a firefighter!

A prime example of young children dressing like prostitutes is Miley Cyrus' 9-year-old sister, Noah, who recently appeared at the 2009 Halloween Dream Event in Hollywood dressed like a pedophile's dream in a dress that barely covered her crotch, knee-high platform boots, and red lipstick better suited for Dita Von Teese (the famous burlesque star who, by the way, I have NEVER seen wearing a mini skirt and knee-high platform boots) than a child who hasn't even entered the double digit years of her life.

Why on earth would Noah's parents, country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife, allow their precious little girl to show up at a public event looking like she's a 25-year-old hooker? How on earth could they think that's alright? Never mind the message that it sends to other kids, but what about the pedophiles sitting at home pleasuring themselves to her kiddie porn-like image? That's not a problem for you, Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus????

Personally, I think it's bad enough that so many grown women use Halloween as an excuse to parade around half naked -- stuffing their size-16 butts into size-6 Sexy Pirate Booty Costumes. But to allow your child to leave the house barely covered under the guise that it's just a "costume" is downright bad parenting. Would you let your son walk out of the house in skin-tight hot pants and a belly shirt? Hell no!! Well, why then do you let your daughter?

Now I'm not saying that kids who wear these costumes deserve anything to happen to them, but maybe their parents need to sit down and have a good long think, and maybe peruse the news, and think about the fact that over-sexualizing little girls is not only inappropriate -- it's freaking dangerous.

Sadly, we live in a dangerous world. Kids get abducted all the time and rarely is the outcome good. Why give a sick and twisted child predator any additional reason to pay attention to your child than you have to?

Please, please this Halloween, reconsider your child's costume and make sure that they look like a child, not Paris Hilton out for a night on the town, before you hit the streets and possibly encounter a pedophile who might take a liking to your partially dressed child.

I think we need to personalize this issue more. The pedophile factor may be scary but I have 3 daughters and their self esteem and healthy body image is a far more real and everyday concern than a pedophile on halloween at this point. What Im trying to say is aren’t pedophiles what they are because they get aroused by youth and innocence of their victims? If so then actually the opposite would be true, no? anyway.. that was just random thought I had after reading this piece but I must say i agree with the principles of your post and that is a call to stop dressing our young females like grown up party girls. I for one don’t even put make-up on my girls’ for halloween, dance recitals, or any other event where costumes are involved.

I consider myself a pretty open minded person and don’t know that I have ever been so taken aback by any momlogic article as I was by this one. Just the first sentence alone about dressing our little girls like whores is outrageous. I think the author is quite over the line in her way of writing this piece. While I agree Halloween is a scary time not for ghost and goblins but for safety for our children I think it could have been much better said than this.

I don’t let my kid get outfits that make her look like a prostitute, so any possible perverts in my neighborhood are going to be sorely disappointed by her costume. As well they should be.

i went to the costume store the other day for a costume for myself, and i actually had to ask the person “do you have any costumes a little less slutty”….go figure we couldn’t find one! it was for my childrens halloween party….she actually tried to give me a dorthy costume (wizard of oz) and it looked like something more suitable for dress up in the bedroom with my husband!

Wow, sounds like someone is upset at their own body. I think this article says more about the author than it does about what the author is talking about.

I could not agree more! I have actually written a few pieces about this very subject- when parents enable their daughters to dress up like junior hookers, whether for Halloween or a Bat Mitzvah, they are contributing to a culture which alternately glamorizes teen sexuality while punishing men for acting on their attraction to teens.
When my step-daughter showed me her pirate costume yesterday, I was taken aback. I am grateful that SHE made the choice to not wear the fishnet stockings that came with it. Her mother picked it out for her, and I really feel like saying something. But I probably will come off sounding like a sancti-mommy and I think I should let this go….Thought?

This author totally missed the point. Pedophiles are not going to be deterred by a more conservative outfit. But pedophiles are rare, and so are stranger abductions. Far more common, and more dangerous, is the “rape culture” that these kinds of outfits perpetuate — and if you are a mom and don’t know what the term means, please research it. After all, girls are much more likely to be attacked by someone they know, like all those boys in CA who thought it was totally OK to rape a 15-year-old girl. I would be much more worried about what our sons and daughters are taking away from all this.

Jennifer, I think you’re initial thought is right, if you say something u will not be heard correctly, so don’t be direct. Remember guidance comes in many forms and sometimes a simple suggestion on how to “enhance” the costume’s theme or trying to make it unique so the girl doesn’t look like every other pirate out there will do the trick. Thats what i do with my 13 yr old, she is real big on not wearing the same thing as dozen other girls so I give her tips on how to tweak the costume, works for me because i usually get her to add coverage

Being proud of your body is much different that feeding the sexualization of our society. I might feel good about my body but that does not mean I would go trick-or-treating as a nudist. Jeez people, where do you draw the line?

Anonymous October 30, 2009, 9:26 AM

Totally agree with this author 100%. Let children be children. Don’t let them grow up so fast and dress way too old.

cassie October 30, 2009, 12:56 PM

Hate to tell you people but pedophiles are going to be looking at our daughters AND sons no matter what they wear. It’s Halloween let your kids have fun. go to this website type in your address or where you will be trick or treating memorize all the pedophile’s faces plan your route away from their houses and don’t worry so much

I love the people on here, almost all of them are assuming, overprotective and uptight.

I’ve done alot of research on sex offenders and if they want a child, they’ll want them because they’re a child.

Do you assume all lesbians like all women, or all gay men like all men? That’s stupid. Do you, as a heterosexual, like all of the opposite sex you see? No, of course not.

True, the stores are selling more revealing costumes for children, but if you don’t like it, then you don’t have to buy it. It’s that simple. Go online and look around. Or make your own costume.

As well as “shoving” my size-10 butt in a Halloween costume, I’ll do it because it’s my life and I like to have fun. I really don’t give a crap what anyone thinks. Life is too short to worry about what other people think about me.

 Rather than shelter your child, why not try TELLING THEM THE TRUTH? Nothing got cooperation on this subject (dressing age-appropriately) from our 12-year-old faster than the truth. Pointing out grown hairy men and explaining that certain ways of dressing will make them think of touching her put the “ewwww” factor in there faster than any discussion filled with “just because” requests and squirmish side glances ever could.
 This article absolutely speaks volumes more about the author than it does the subject.

I feel the same way about beauty pagents. Seeing 4,5,6 year olds in full make-up, fake tans & $100 hair-do’s makes me sick. I know that not all of the people filling those seats know those little girls.

Its rare that I find an article that I agree with on this site.
I worked at walmart for a while, and I saw countless small children, dress up in ways that I would never dress myself, let alone allow a child to do so.
I never understood this new fad with letting the kids choose their clothing, and then the parent not making the final decision.

Hey folks. Non-offending pedophile here. Yes some of us pedos are probably getting our sick jollies looking at your kids in their Halloween costumes. Sorry, at the very least I don’t mean to.

There are a considerably larger number of non-offending pedophiles than offending ones. Though we may seem so thoroughly disgusting to you, we are not inhuman. Most of us have the same sense of conscience, morality, and decency you have and therefore have no ill designs on your children

Sexualization of little girls is awful.
I admit that many kids dressed up in their mother’s clothes and makeup playing house and all that. But when you let your children dress like their 25 when their 12 that’s risque. Let kids have a childhood. I knew parent’s who were nudists and taught their kids to have a healthy attitude towards nudity. They weren’t abused nor molested. They just respected themselves and lived as naturists. But that’s a totally different subject.
When you present children as how society treats women (like whores or sluts) that gives the ok to rapists/sex offenders. They look for that in children. They are aroused by that. Sad but true.

With little girls dressing like that I can imagine the pervs taking Kamagra Jelly and going crazy all over the TV, it is a dangerous behavior of parents to allow them dress up like that even if it’s just a costume.

Excellent info. Thanks, very informative and easy to understand.
