Offensive Costumes
People should be able to do whatever they want just be prepared for ridicule if you're being a dick.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: Offensive Costumes
Wouldn't you have to go out of your way to make it offensive, though. Like doing the black face thing with a noose around your neck, or that Catholic condom thing. Simply dressing up as another ethnicity is allowed, imo. Some people wish they WERE Native American, so let 'em dress up like a Chief once a year.

RE: Offensive Costumes
Halloween has become an opportunity for people to dress up in costumes and express themselves for one day out of the year. It's been that way for a very long time. Like any other of the 364 days out of the year it would be a good thing if people used discretion on "where" and "how" they chose to express themselves but many people chose not to, just like the other 364 days of the year. In the great scheme of things I have to wonder why people are so wound up about it. It could be worse. People could be acting like this every day, and some actually do. This is the one chance for people to let loose a bit, just like the looneys. The uptight should just get over it. It only lasts a few hours.

[disclaimer] I haven't worn a Halloween costume since 1998.

RE: Offensive Costumes
This makes no sense, people dress the way they want for halloween because they want to. Its not some asinine political statement against a particular culture, or "race" of people or ideology. Next they're going to have a poster of Dracula holding up a picture of twilight vampires...ridiculous

No, you don't. Not in a rational and ethical society. What if the majority of people approved of it, like in some regions? Promoting it. You're a privileged class harassing an underprivileged class. That's going beyond just being an asshole. That's straight out racism.

And people excusing it because they didn't "intend" to doesn't matter.

Fuck, do I feel like a debbie downer posting this.

Normally I love a fucked up joke, I even like a good "pedo-priest" joke told here and there. But consider being one of the thousands (who knows how many) of victims, and you happen to be at a party when a guy shows up in this costume. What would you feel?

Funny?

I get it, and it's funny to you and me, but a little thought goes a long way.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
