Folkie singer Jill Sobule has come out with a new anti-slutty-Halloween-costume song, which can be heard here.
Sobule, who is Jewish, composed the song about adults wearing all-too-revealing costumes. Her sentiments are all the more apt in connection with young girls wearing similarly revealing getups. This evening I saw a pair of 13-year-olds wearing shorty spandex-type shorts (the kind that usually go under cheerleaders’ skirts) with not-oversized football jerseys, and posing like they were ready for their close-ups on some “Girls of the NFL” calendar.
The mothers of some trick-or-treaters clearly ought to be doing more than looking over their candy.
