Since middle school, we have been well aware of the proud tradition of using Halloween to dress up like Ye Olde Tart. However, the trend has now trickled down to toddlers: A Wal-Mart in the Portland/Southwest Washington area is hawking "naughty leopard" costumes for children around age 2, complete with cabaret sparkles and the ever-sexxXy combo of pink and black.
Granted, there are two definitions of the word "naughty," but these days the connotation is way more "Spank me, Daddy," than "I stole some cookies and got into harmless childish hijinks," which lands this one straight on the Sexualizing Little Girls Expressway. As one mom in the area told Katu.com: "The outfit itself is cute, but naughty leopard doesn't sound like something a kid should be wearing."
One awesome alternative is that you, a grown-woman, wear this toddler's Halloween costume and therefore be the Sexiest Leopard Ever.
