You are right Melissa. It is not only for a particular parent's kids. It is to help everyone's kids. Afterall we are our brother's and our sister's keeper.

I couldn't believe how ridiculous this problem has become when I took my kids to the Spirit Halloween costume store this year. The walls and racks were completely full of various mutations of the vamped up anything you can think of . I said to my daughter, well it looks like YOU can be anything SEXY this year.

She ended up choosing a normal character costume from the "boys" costume section, one for which the character looked true to itself rather than the vamped up girl version of the same character wearing a short kilt like miniskirt and tight bodice. Ridiculous. Might this petition not be also delivered to the manufacturers of these oversexed girls costumes, and to Walmart and Spirit Halloween stores too? Seems unfair to pick on Target when the problem is everywhere.

My daughter is now 17. We were frustrated during her trick or treat years with the lack of non-sexual costumes. She admitted being embarrassed to look at them or try them on. Target: please take the lead on this. You will find it's not only the right thing to do, but it's also a great business decision. Support parents as they are raising young girls. Thank you

Not all parents allow their children to participate in halloween, no matter what their age. I think all stores should be petitioned in the non sexualisation of childrens clothing and halloween costums not sold at all.

Roditelji na vaspitanju! Roditelji su iskompleksirani od straha da dete nece se udati ili ozeniti.Ta bolest je lose uticala na vaspitanju deteta.Ima i druga strana kod tih roditelja oni nisu mogli kod svojih roditelja a moje dete ce moci kod mene .U svom uzivanju roditelji ne vide losu buducnost njihovih princeza i princeva.Spas u svemu vidim skolu i vaspitace koji ce uzeti u svoje ruke buducnost ugrozene,golisave i nasminkane dece.Pozzz.

I think costumes that suggest the results of violence, guns, knives, bloody faces, etc are worse than sexy female costumes for girls. The petition is too limited focusing only on girls. ALL costumes should be fun, scary maybe, but not depicting truly horrific acts. What is wrong with a white sheet for a ghost?? The parents do not have to purchase expensive design costumes. get back to making the costume from stuff in the house.

I am even more agin Halloween than I am the sexualisation of children. I wouldn't allow my kids to participate (if I had kids).

I have only seen dresses for girls witches, princesses, snow White, Cinderella. Minnie Mouse and such like! What's wrong with that? As for Target...Never heard of them or where are they?

Ou're absolutely right, this celebration in fact concerned with the family in the most important aspect, that of the cult of the dead, you should prepare dinner for those who left us to meet our ancestors on Halloween night but ... lobbyes of the giocattolari rockefelleriani do not give up from wanting to turn our daughters of small whores in order to manipulate them better usurer see, eg, barbie the first American prostitute who then influenced the rest.
