With each passing year, Halloween becomes more about revealing and provocative costumes than it is about having fun going door to door. "Sassy Maid", "Sexy Viking", "Pink Punk Pirate" are just a few of the costumes one can find with a quick Google search, and lots of them have kid sizes as well. Is that really what Halloween is all about now? But rather than go after the real problem, activists attack Subway for "sexist" sandwich ads that make fun of the trend. Glenn had more on radio this morning.
"I'm so tired of all of the costumes for our girls being so skanky. Why do we have to dress our girls up like that? Are we the only people on the planet that are offended by that?" Glenn said.
"I'm convinced the only reason we buy some of these costumes is because those are the only choices you have," Glenn said.
But rather than focus on the costumes themselves, people are up in arms over a Subway commercial that mocks the skanky costumes as "sexist".
"There's nothing wrong with this ad," Glenn said. "The ads that you should worry about are on actual subways and in the subway platforms and what they're sending out as brochures and everything else out and every costume shop in America. They have all of them. And look, it's not for 25-year-old girls."
"This is advertising to sell a sandwich," Glenn said.
Stu said these attacks are just the latest in people's desperate search to find something to complain about online.
"The desperate Indiana Jones like search to be offended by something," Stu said. "To find something that you can make yourself feel alive for a few hours and complain about Subway. It's so pathetic."
