I have never been bothered by people dressed as witches. But I was on another site just now and a woman was talking about how offencive it is to see kids with witch costumes and big green noses... She said it's like walking around as a pregnant nun (which I was one year). It's offencive to believers of that faith and the costumes should be sold...
What are your thoughs?
**Please keep it civil!

If they are walking around with big green noses, that makes me think of the Wizard of Oz, so they aren't really walking around as just a witch but as an actual character. Regardless, something like that wouldn't bother me. I'm Catholic and I don't think the pregnant Nun would have offended me, I might have looked twice, maybe even shook my head, but it's all in fun and nothing that I would have been upset about.

I don't find it offensive. First of all it is a legitimate literary character. Also, it is a little disturbing that people find it offensive. Does old or ugly really equal bad? I understand that there was a conscious effort to make that so, but I don't buy it. One can be a crone & be beautiful. One can be disfigured on the outside & be spiritually beautiful. I say we embrace all that was labelled as bad.
