I told my mom I was dressing as a man for Halloween. She sighed and said “But Courtney, you are such a BEAUTIFUL girl.” So I said, “So… what if I went as an ugly female zombie?” She thought that was a brilliant idea.


Why is it, that for millions of “properly gendered” people, dressing as the other gender on Halloween is perfectly acceptable, but if you are genderfluid all of the sudden its wrong?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I think that people view it in the same way that they think it’s okay for straight girlfriends to hug each other in public, but lesbian friends who aren’t even in a relationship can’t. I know it’s dumb.
    Go as whatever you want for Halloween, though, and have fun with it!

    why does your mother decide what you wear? If you would want to give her the most shocking halloween feelings tell her you go as a girl this night, for it`s totally ok for our society to dress as the opposite sex on halloween. THIS will make her think…
