Halloween is a comin’ and Pinterest is full of boatloads of fabulous costume ideas. This one is quite popular and is being re-pinned with this caption, “Add a tutu to any boys halloween outfit and it instantly becomes a girls!” Because, you know, if it doesn’t contain yards of magic gender-identifying tulle, it’s not an appropriate Halloween costume for a girl. So remember, people, when it comes to dressing up your daughters for Halloween, be sure you “Stick a tutu on it!”

    You guys need to lighten up! Some girls like tutus, some don’t. It’s a super cute idea, don’t get your panties in a twist! Why can’t superheroes be girly and wear tutus? Hating on the idea because it adds some femininity to something typically masculine actually makes you the ignorant ones – girls that are true to themselves and want to be girly shouldn’t be allowed to now because it reenforces stereotypes?

      You don’t get it. If a kid (yes I said KID) wants to wear a tutu with their costume, so be it. It’s Halloween. The problem with this is imposing the tutu upon the girls to “make” the superhero costume “girly”.

      The point, you are so missing it.

      I wonder what your reaction would be if a boy decided he wanted to wear the tutu with this spiderman costume? You see, no one is saying that the girl shouldn’t wear the tutu, if she wants to, what is being said, however, is why put the tutu on it, just to make it girly. Why can’t the girl wear the spiderman costume as is.

        Yes, that is how I feel – let them wear what they want – I don’t get the “put a tutu on it to make it girly” mentality. But then again, I’m not into forced gender roles…

    This offends me to no end. Why do parents insist on forcing their kids into gender stereotypes? And what superhero could do all that they do in a tutu?? If your little girl wants to be spiderman…let her be spiderman! For that matter, if your little boy wants to be a ballerina, let him be a ballerina!
