Today's subject: "Slutty" (revealing/sexy) Halloween costumes for women. Why are they so popular?
A) Women secretly wish they could be more open and sexual all the time, and Halloween is a "safe" time to pursue it and act it out.
B) Women see "sluts" as something worthy of a Halloween costume, and dress up because the "costume" is weird/funny/different.
C) Horny men own all the costume companies, and force women into a narrow range of choices.
D) It's just what's popular.
Also: Is "slut" a bad word? Does it depend on context (and who's calling you one)? I don't like the connotation it usually has, but it's quite descriptive.
