Must not disrespect Hollywood fiction

AN online clothing company has been forced to remove a costume from their site in the lead up to Halloween following severe social media backlash.

The costume, reminiscent of the outfit worn by the handmaids in the dystopian television series The Handmaid’s Tale, but with a ‘sexy’ twist, sparked controversy online for trivialising the message of the show and sexualising the handmaids — who are subjected to rape in the fictional totalitarian state, Gilead, in an attempt to repopulate society in the face of a rapidly declining birthrate.

The handmaids in the show are recognised by their long red dresses, white bonnets and red capes.

The outfit has also been used as a symbol for protesting women’s rights. Recently, a number of demonstrators wore the outfit to protest President Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh.

A picture of a model wearing the sexy version of the costume on featured a red minidress paired with a revealing red cape and a white bonnet. The model also wore sky-high black stilettos.

Sexy USED to be "empowering." Now it's "self-hating subservience to the white, hetero, cis-gender patriarchy."
