The Washington Post Wrote a Long Article About Sexist Dog Halloween Costumes

And that right there is a headline straight out of the Onion. I had to double check to make sure I was actually on the Washington Post with a headline so preposterous. When I confirmed that yes, it was the Post, I figured I was in for a light-hearted, tongue in cheek, good ol fashioned Friday morning article about dogs in costumes. Nope. Wrong again, bucko. Shit got REAL.

What are we…what are we even talking about???? Dogs and gender roles and career options? It’s not that serious, bro. Dogs don’t have career options. Dogs are pink cowgirls for halloween cause it’s cute as fuck. I don’t think any rational human looks at a Labradoodle in a Halloween costume and begins a deep reflection on gender identity.

Another great part from the article:

Representatives for PetSmart and Baxter Boo did not respond to requests for comment.

Imagine reaching out to fucking PetSmart to get to the bottom of the Chihuahua ballerina costume scandal. Good for PetSmart for not even responding to something so ridiculous. Almost makes me want to buy one of their inbred dogs. Almost.
