OSU magazine: Your Halloween costumes are only offensive if you’re white

A student magazine at the Ohio State University has published a guide for students to determine if their Halloween costume may be racist or offensive to other students.

According to the October edition of 1870 Magazine, three categories of costumes that require special consideration are “A Meme,” “Something Sexy,” and “Politically Charged.”

Despite claiming that their guide is for non-offensive costumes, the “Yes,” section of “Politically Charged” costumes features an option for costumes that make fun of President Donald Trump, in which the magazine advises readers to “DO IT!”

For costumes that are not politically charged, the guide then asks students whether or not the costume is in honor of a celebrity who has passed away and lists the late singer Prince as an example. According to the editors, the costume of Prince is only okay if a person is not white… those who are white and want to go as Prince need to “Try a new costume idea.”

The guide also addressed the topic of sexy Halloween costumes, specifically ones that may be a nod to different cultures. While the magazine lists costumes such as “sexy construction worker,” and “sexy animal” as being acceptable, students who want to dress up as sexy outfits from different cultures should take a number of precautions to ensure their costumes are not offensive.

For example, if a student wears a sexy costume that is not of an animal or a specific occupation, but their costume included “Traditional headwear from other cultures,” the costume is only okay is the wearer is not white. Those who are white with such a costume idea also are told to “Try a new costume idea.” In other words, if you’re white, you can’t wear a costume from another culture, but if you’re not, then you are fine.

The guide also addresses costumes based on internet memes, indicating that only memes from “The Wholesome Memes Twitter Account” are likely to be acceptable as Halloween costumes while condemning costumes featuring racist themes such as swastikas or Pepe the Frog.

It seems that the snowflakes have no imagination. There are plenty of costumes that don’t appropriate some other culture yet can amuse and should cause an uproar at any Halloween gathering.

Examples are but not limited to:

  • Nancy Pelosi: Go as a brain cramp, her mask and all one needs to say Uh-uh-uh-uh!
  • HRC: Costume consists of a wine glass ad bandages. Whine and bitch about everything.
  • Harvey Weinstein: Wear boxers and an overcoat and a Bill Clinton mask, honk every boob in sight.
  • John McCain: Show a hole in head and brain removed.
  • Faculty: Form light poster board into a cone, making a pointy head, cover with long hair and perhaps a ponytail.
  • Hemorrhoid: Get a bulging purplish mask with tufts of hair and go as a progressive student leader.

These delicates can’t be allowed to pick out a costume for Halloween lest they run afoul of some PC regulation concerning ‘Cultural Appropriation’. Why don’t they all co nekkid with their naughty bits flopping about in the chilly night time air. But then someone will accuse them of appropriating human culture. That would be true of course.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear

Throughout October, universities across the nation are warning their students against Halloween costumes some consider offensive.

Gone are the days when college students could dress up without fear of being reported to a bias response team. In recent years, more and more campus leaders have made it their mission to warn students what not to wear.

Fliers, memos, workshops and more impart the admonitions.

“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”

“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students. [snip]

At a “Conversation Circle” at Princeton University this Sunday, students will “engage in a dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

With this last we believe we’re into the area of felonious costumes.

If these fragile individuals need help with ideas, why not go forth gowned as faculty members, Pelosi, Shumer or Hollywood celebs in sumptuary raiment. A campus full of Harvey costumes should bring massive chuckles.
