Keeping Up With The Kardashians may divide opinion, but we can all agree that Kylie Jenner deserves respect.
Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, a new survey has depicted her in a pretty unpleasant light.
According to Refinery 29, Kylie has been named ‘the most promiscuous Halloween costume of 2015’ by dating website WhatsYourPrice.com.
The site worked this out by asking over 60,000 of their single male members which costume would suggest that the woman in it is, shall we say, up for a good time.
In a press release about this study, the company said: ‘Results of the survey found most single men think women who dress up as Kylie Jenner will be the easiest to get out of their costumes.’
But why WOULD someone dressed as Kylie be so ‘easy’ to undress? By all accounts, the teen is in a committed relationship with rapper Tyga.
And who cares about that anyway? A girl could sport nothing but a bra and pants to a Halloween party and be 100% sure she’ll still be wearing it at home time.
Even if she does end up out of her outfit, that’s completely her prerogative. We shouldn’t be shaming people for the decisions they make about their own body.
We have to ask what exactly this costume would consist of? Over the past few months, Kylie’s worn everything from T-shirts and jeans to glam dresses and cut-out bikinis.
A WhatsYourPrice.com representative has opened up about the furore, saying: ‘With surveys like this, there’s people whose feathers are gonna get ruffled.

‘But it’s simply a fun survey we throw together to help people kind of [identify] what costumes to avoid and what ones are advisable this Halloween.’
Alas, in the release it’s noted that dressing as presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ‘may be a safer costume’ than Kylie.
This is because: ‘Women who choose to dress as Clinton may be viewed as more serious and less likely to have a lapse in judgement by guys who just want a hook up.’
But isn’t this just another example of victim blaming? As if someone were to receive unwanted attention – or something more serious – on Halloween, it would have something to do with their choice of attire.
This kind of survey just perpetuates the outmoded thought that we’re not allowed to wear what we want unless we’re prepared to feel nervous.
With movements against body-shaming and slut-shaming taking over the internet right now, we’re shocked that this would even be a topic of discussion.
And who wants to base their costume on what those 60,000 blokes reckon, anyway?!
