    On the site BaxterBoo.com, options for your female pooch include “sweet heart nurse” or French maid. “Any tidy girl dog will look adorable wearing this French Maid Dog Costume,” the site’s description reads. “Whether your pup is a clean freak or a messy mutt, she will enjoy playing ‘dress up’ in this fun costume.”

    The choices for male dogs, meanwhile, include fireman, mob boss and doctor (suggested pairing: “match up with a girl friend with the Sweet Heart Nurse Dog Costume.”)

    “It seems silly on the surface, but this is part of a larger message we’re sending, that there are certain jobs for men, and certain jobs for women,” said Scott Lawrie, 36, who co-hosts a podcast, ‘She will not be ignored,’ about gender issues. “The career options for women — and dogs — need to go beyond pink loofahs and pink cowgirls.”

    Last year, the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs found that items marketed to girls and women are routinely marked up an average 7 percent compared to items for boys and men.

    It turns out those mark ups aren’t limited to humans, either. At Party City, Supergirl and Wonder Woman doggie costumes were priced 30 percent higher than Superman costumes ($16.99 versus $12.99). Batgirl costumes, meanwhile, were selling for $19.99, a 33 percent premium on Batman’s $14.99 price tag.

    The most popular costumes for pets were gender-neutral pumpkins, hot dogs and bumblebees.

    Not sure if it is liberals, or the price tag that is saying that.

    You have to admit that it is weird that even feminine costumes for dogs are marked higher.

    About 15 years ago my neighbor's little girl put a doll's dress on her male dog for a Halloween costume. Sadly no one at the time realized she was such a forward thinker and pioneer on gender identity issues.

    I'm no fan of dressing up pets. There is one exception that I must admit cracks me up any time I see it....

    It was really funny. He was a Chihuahua mix and a dress from a Cabbage Patch doll fit him perfectly. When he was offered a treat he stood up on his hind legs and pirouetted around - looked like a dancer with a flowing skirt.
