HALLOWEEN is about dressing up, having fun and deeming the costumes of others offensive and demanding their cancellation. These are practically hate speech:
Mario and Luigi
You and your best mate want to do a costume together, you like video games, the movie was out this year, where’s the harm? The harm, you are informed, is in the perpetuation of a cultural stereotype because not all Italians are plumbers who leap down pipes and smash blocks with their heads for money, you xenophobic bastard.
Ever actually worked as a maid? Nothing sexy about it. You are appropriating labour undertaken by immigrant workers with low pay, long hours and often exploitation. Why don’t you try making beds and cleaning up after other people all day and then see how you feel, your teenager says, oblivious to any irony.
A Halloween mainstay, a bit of fun, popular with the kids surely? Apart from those kids who inform you the character is deeply problematic, a victim of domestic abuse, gaslighting and coercion and you are glorifying a mentally unwell criminal. If you knew Harley was queer in the comics now you could argue back, but you don’t.
Really? Haven’t nurses suffered enough? Don’t they deserve to be taken seriously? By objectifying these professions you turn them into nothing but perverse avatars for your shameful fantasies. You’re the kind of prick who dressed as Covid in 2021, aren’t you?
Where to start? Oppenheimer committed mass murder. As for Barbie, the unrealistic standard of beauty she created have led to generations of body dysmorphia, which is even worse. Being rollerskate Barbie isn’t subverting that, it’s playing into it. Dressing up as both of them and going full Barbenheimer? Leave society now. You are not welcome here anymore.
