Cultural appropriation nonsense at Halloween (1)

Telling a Texan not to wear cowboy boots is like telling Colonel Sanders not to fry chicken.

Fraternities and Sororities were instructed to avoid Halloween party costumes and themes that might “appropriate another culture or experience,” according to The College Fix.

Students were issued a 29-point checklist to ensure they avoid any controversial or offensive trick or treat regalia.

Here’s a brief list of the costumes and themes considered harmful by the University of Texas:

Cowboys and Indians — anything “Squaw” or any generalized depiction of an indigenous person or peoples;

“South of the Border” and “Fiesta” themes;

“Ghetto Fabulous” or “Urban” themes;

“Pimps and Hoes” theme;

“Trailer Trash” theme;

“Chicks and Hicks” “Rednecks.”

In other words, no tacos, tee-pees or Daisy Dukes at UT-Austin Halloween parties.

The university also urged party-goers to avoid sensationalizing transgender celebrities such as the “Jenner formerly known as Bruce.”

Schools across the fruited plain have been warning students that Halloween is less about trick-or-treating and more about not triggering micro-aggressions among overly sensitive and easily offended millennials.

The University of Florida is offering counseling for any student offended by a Wonder Woman or Zombie or Papa Smurf costume.

“Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions,” school administrators wrote in a blog post. “Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”

However, the University of Texas does believe there are some costumes considered appropriate for the academic community.

They suggested kids could dress as superheroes or an athlete or perhaps a letter of the alphabet.

Although, students might want to steer clear of the letters “L”, “G”, “B”, “T” and “Q.”

The crux of the matter here is that anyone can be offended by anything. Whether that offense is legitimate is the real question. Continuing to allow false offense is the true outrage.
