53. But sexist costumes are just fine, I suppose.
Remember high school jocks who thought it was hilarious to dress up like cheerleaders, with balloons tucked under their shirts?

I'm a woman and I think those costumes are pretty stupid and lack originality, but Halloween is also for having fun. There are worse grievances in the world, to put it mildly. Am I supposed to feel offended if a man wants to dress up as a woman for Halloween? Maybe I "should be offended", but the truth is I have more serious issues to worry about.

Getting back to stupid sexist cosumes, I would be a lot more impressed if a man were a bit craftier with their outfit and came to the party as a giant breast, or a huge vagina. Now that would take some effort.
