Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

The social justice warriors have been busily finding things to be offended by on college campuses across America during this Halloween season. It seems even the mere possibility that someone somewhere could be caught having a good time is just too much for them to bear.

As a result, several colleges and universities have developed checklists, guides, workshops and in some cases went so far as to threaten probes or investigations over the mere possibility that someone MAY dress up in a costume that COULD BE viewed as offensive by somebody somewhere. Some schools are even offering 24/7 counseling to assist the little darlings with coping with what used to be a night of fun and revelry on campuses across the nation.

Now schools are cracking down on any costume deemed not politically correct which could be anything from dressing as Caitlyn Jenner to creepy clowns and anything in between. Offensive costumes are ones that incorporate “a long history of prejudice, hate, discrimination, colonialism, and slavery” as well as turning “an important and/or sacred element into fashion.”

“The scariest thing about your costume isn’t what you think,” according to a “Halloween and Cultural Appropriation Tabling” event at Goucher College in Maryland.

The University of St. Thomas in Minnesota put up “Costume or Culture Appropriation” fliers listing “unacceptable” costumes and clothing as including Native American headdresses, a Mexican sombrero, a geisha outfit or any form of blackface.

The flier lists a definition of cultural appropriation 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.”

According to Fox News, the list of colleges and universities participating and perpetuating this level of nonsense is staggering.  The news outlet states –

The University of California, Santa Barbara recently held a Social Justice Workshop to teach students how to spot Halloween costume abuse and appropriation.

Similarly, Washington State University’s Social Justice Peer Educators Group held an event entitled “We’re a Culture, Not a Costume” to teach people about “harmful” Halloween costumes, according to Acculturated.

The University of Massachusetts, Amherst put up “Simple Costume Racism Evaluation and Assessment Meter” (SCREAM) posters around campus, assigning threat levels based on how much a costume differs from the student’s own race.

Ohio State University’s student magazine had a similar flow chart this year that supports costumes that “make fun of Donald Trump,” but warns white students not to dress as Prince or wear “traditional head wear from other cultures.”

A Notre Dame Residence hall rector sent out a memo to her students before a Disney-themed dance not to dress up as Moana, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan or The Princess and the Frog.

At the University of Utah, a newsletter put out by the Student Affairs Diversity Council, tells students to avoid Halloween costumes if it is labeled “tribal” or “traditional,” or if it includes dreads, locs, afros, cornrows or a headdress.

Northern Arizona University’s Housing and Residence Life warned against African-inspired costumes, Pocahontas, Asian rice hats and more, according to The College Fix.

At Princeton University, the Center for Equality held a “dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

The University of Texas even went so far as to issue a 29-point checklist on what could potentially be deemed “offensive” Halloween costumes where even seemingly harmless themes could be viewed as harmless, dangerous, and racist if carried out incorrectly.

At Tufts University university officials warned  students they could be subject to probes from campus police for costumes that make students “feel threatened or unsafe.” The university administration is encouraging students to report anyone wearing what they deem as an “inappropriate and offensive costume,” according to the College Fix.

A Greek official at Pennsylvania’s Gettysburg College warned fellow Greeks their fraternity and sorority chapters could be shut down if the wrong costumes were worn.

It begs to be asked when is simply wearing your everyday clothes going to become offensive and subject to cultural appropriation? It seems what used to be fun is no longer allowed – the PC Fun police must suck the joy out even the most innocuous of costumes. Reasonable people are simply opting to stay home rather than deal with the hassle.
