Is Your Pet's Halloween Costume Sexist? Most Likely, Yes, According To...

Is your pet's Halloween costume this year sexist? Most likely, yes, according to a progressive podcaster in San Francisco.

According to the Washington Post, Scott Lawrie — who speaks to his audience about gender issues — was deeply offended when he discovered that some retailers who sell pet costumes actually put them in gender categories for male and female animals.

He was particularly bothered by costumes like police officers and firefighters that were in the "male" category and costumes like pink cowgirls and nurses that were in the "female" category.

“It seems silly on the surface, but this is part of a larger message we’re sending, that there are certain jobs for men, and certain jobs for women,” Lawrie lamented. “The career options for women — and dogs — need to go beyond pink loofahs and pink cowgirls.”

Career options for dogs?

“Even if it’s just on principle, this is important. I’m waiting until they fix it,” Lawrie exclaimed concerning buying costumes for his own dogs.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to get discernible comments from any costumed pets involved in the ongoing pet gender career segregation.
