Is This a Joke? Feminist Blog Suggests "Empowering" Halloween Costumes for Girls, Including Astronaut, Doctor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Billie Jean King, and... Lena Dunham

Wow. Now that's empowering.

I think one of the costumes is supposed to be Yoko Ono. I mean, who is this supposed to be? My only other guess is Madonna but I don't remember her ever dressing like this, with the big sunglqasses.

Despite the tremendous progress women have made over the past fifty years, the costumes that are most readily available for our next generation of leaders do not reflect the times we live in: Boys have a seemingly endless choice of strong, powerful figures to choose from, while girls' costumes are limited to characters like Snow White, Cinderella, and "Elegant Toddler Bride."

So if your daughter wants to be a firefighter, a police officer, or an athlete this year, you'll have to check the boy's costume section ... or learn how to sew.

Young girls (and their parents) need more choices this Halloween and, with that in mind, we reimagined Halloween costumes-- MAKERS style. These costumes in the gallery above celebrate the heroic, groundbreaking women of MAKERS.

Well... um, I get the idea that of hoping that your daughters dream of more than being a "Child Toddler," so... you want to elevate their aspirations so they can be someone important... like Lena Dunham?

Meanwhile, while you may hope this advisory against politically incorrect costumes is a parody, you can't be quite certain, can you?
