I’m sure you’ve heard of The Handmaid’s Tale. If not, it’s that craptastic feminist fantasy about women being oppressed by men and their toxic maleness. Man-hating ladies often dress as the characters to protest Republicans. Usually for Republican’s anti-abortion platform, but sometimes just to dress up and look silly. As if a reference to a third-rate Hulu show is going to make cause the Republicans to quiver in fear, forcing them to suddenly reverse their policies on baby-killing.
Seeing as the armpit-haired demographic invokes the book/show on a daily basis, a costume company had the idea to give Handmaid’s attire a sexy Halloween twist.
Who thought this was a good idea? https://t.co/6IOEZxkYZ4

Naturally, this caused the left to explode. Much like a feminist’s waistline after a Man-Haters of America meeting at Arby’s.
If you ever need a reminder that we have a long way to go to end the objectification and humiliation of women, look no further than Halloween costumes. This ‘sexy handmaids tale’ costume pretty much sums it up. https://t.co/EdJ43eqAF4

So, if women cover themselves from head to toe, that’s oppression. If they let it all hang out, it’s objectification and humiliation. At some point, the left is gonna have to make up their collective, groupthinking mind.

Feminism, which used to view women showing leg and cleavage as virtuous. I guess those days are long gone.
Eventually, the company making the costume chose to stop selling the costume altogether. Most likely due to fear of their headquarters suffering a stampede from an army of pudgetastic feminist warthogs. Who are not their target audience.

The funniest thing here is how this “symbol of women’s oppression” only exists in feminists’ imaginations. Contrary to what the left tells us, The Handmaid’s Tale is a fictional book about a fictional America. In the real world, ladyfolk are free to leave little to the imagination with their dress. Much like the very existence of this costume proves.
Also, I’m no expert on feminist theory here, but isn’t making an oppressive garment “sexy” actually mocking oppression? The message being “instead of covering up, here’s some thigh and a healthy dose of bewb-crack to keep you up at night.” I hardly think the company would be making a mockery of female oppression while at the same time enforcing it.
Second also, whatever happened to women being allowed to make their own choices? If a woman wants to be a slutty handmaiden, shouldn’t she be allowed to be a slutty handmaiden? Similarly, how is it news that Halloween costumes get sluttified? Whatever you do, don’t tell feminists about Halloween nurse costumes. Don’t.
The leftist fun-police strikes again, depriving gents of aesthetically-pleasing ladies in provocative pilgrim-wear. Fighting “oppression” by dictating what costumes can and can’t be worn. How ironic.
The left’s war on Halloween is real, people. Resist.
