Petition Closed

Today, 12 million people are suffering from eating disorders. Trick R Treat Costumes/HalloweenStore.com is trivializing and mocking this serious, life-threatening disease by selling an offensive, tasteless costume called "Anna Rexia," encouraging women to wear a sexualizing, skin-tight, skeleton-themed dress with a matching measuring tape belt around the waist.

Their website raves, "'Make no bones about it - this dress will spark some conversations." We couldn't agree more! The conversation SPARK, a movement committed to ending the sexualization of girls, wants to have is about how destructive it can be to mock and sexualize eating disorders. The American Psychological Association released a report that proves that sexualization diminishes girls' self-esteem and mental health, decreases their academic achievement in every subject and increases sexism among boys and men.

Additionally, 3 in every 100 American women suffers from an eating disorder which is the leading cause of death for girls ages 15-24! Not funny at all.

Join us to demand that HalloweenStore.com, a leading supplier of Halloween costumes for children and adults nationally, removes this offensive and dangerous costume immediately.
