Begin the Halloween Wars have. This was all the rage last year (see Bill Maher Hilariously Destroys Anti-Halloween PC Liberals! and #SJW Feminists Try to Ruin Halloween. Let’s Laugh At Them…). This year? We have the University of Florida offering counseling to any student who is offended by a Halloween costume. Yes, really. Trick or treat has a whole new meaning!
No, really. This is an actual thing happening.
The University of Florida administration is preparing for upcoming Halloween festivities by reminding students that the school’s “Bias Education and Response Team” is prepared to handle complaints about offensive costumes. Additionally, the school will provide 24/7 counseling services to anyone who is offended by a particular costume.
24/7 counseling. For students offended. By Halloween costumes. Let that sink in. These students are, as a cheesy commercial would say, “the future.” Scared yet?
An administration newsletter published on October 10 warns students “to think about your choices of costumes and themes . . .” because “[s]ome Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions. Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”
They forgot “professions.” Like you ladies who like to slut it up by dressing as naughty nurses. Apparently pushing a “professional” stereotype is okay, though.
The newsletter continues, “If you are troubled by an incident that does occur, please know that there are many resources available . . .” including “a 24/7 counselor in the Counseling and Wellness Center . . . .”
Trick or Treat? Smell my feet! Go screw yourselves.
How miserable do you have to be to ruin Halloween? First, it was the 80s when people started to put razor blades in candy. That’s a problem. Dressing as an indigenous person? Not so much. #Perspective
Now, precious snowflakes needing psychological counseling…over a costume they deem offensive, all day and every day: offensive costumes are one of the Halloween perks. If you’re so triggered by costumes, by MAKE BELIEVE, might I also suggest you never watch a movie, read a book, or go on the internet at all. Your delicate little heart cannot take it.
As to the University of Florida, what strong students you’re nurturing. If I were a student there, this story may inspire me to transfer. I wouldn’t want to be seen as a Snowflake come resume time, when a future, potential employer looks at my alma mater. Just saying.
Seriously, get a grip, you babies.
