Is your daughter’s Halloween costume "appropriate"?

Unless you’re Polynesian, dressing up your child as Disney’s Moana is racist, according to an activist parenting blogger.

Little girls dressing up as Elsa from Frozen should just let it go —because her character promotes “white beauty,” Sachi Feris writes in her blog, Raising Race Conscious Children, in a post that went viral and was picked up by Cosmopolitan.

But that's all child's play compared to the continued policing of costumes on college campuses.

The mere possibility of someone dressing up in what could be viewed as an "offensive" costume is causing several colleges to proactively warn students — using guides, checklists, workshops, threats of probes and investigations. Even offering 24/7 counseling.

That writer and anyone else that thinks children have a political and racist agenda with their halloween costume of their favorite disney character hate themselves and have a terrible life. they think "progress" will make their shitty lives better - thats all most of this social justice garbage boils down to.

Shouldn't that just motivate the non-SJW students to wear the most offensive costumes imaginable?

Are are today's college students too pussified for that?

Yes, and like a true socialist they want to legislate that everyone elses misery equals their own. The truth is, people like the sociology professor who abhors the white nuclear family are just f'd up in the head. They have legitimate mental health issues and shouldn't be listened to; or given any positions of authority or influence. They're incapable of good judgment.

Dressing up as a non-white character is appropriation. Dressing up as a white character is promoting white supremacy.

I'm not clear on what other options there are? Dress up as a robot?

It's another liberal minefield, an unsolvable trap of constant butt ache. That's why they're miserable people, they put themselves in these conundrums of every path leading to a trigger point. The problem is they're weak and offended by everything and so create this poorly thought out strategy to avoid offense when the proper solution is having thicker skin as to not be offended so easily to begin with.

Think of all of the snowflakes my buddies and I would have offended today if we dressed in our Halloween 1982 costumes. Three white cisgendered males dressed up as the Pointer Sisters would have people running from the streets dialing 911 in today's world.

Just say that you're gay and then you're good to go.
