It’s becoming ridiculous how social justice warrior snowflakes’ blood pressure goes through the roof when they see an offensive costume on Halloween. For the record, I would probably laugh if I see a bunch of white people dress up like Chinese railroad workers. There’s nothing offensive about this within normal parameters. Even on the Left, there are some people who are trying to prevent drag queens from participating in certain LGBTQ events because it could be demeaning to trans people. Progressivism is a lifestyle in which pointing out how awful the world is a mandatory exercise. On college campuses, it’s been institutionalized through bias squads, which took note of three blind mice costume made by some students at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville (via Heat Street):
The documents, which Heat Street obtained under open records laws, reveal that a member of the Bias Incident Team reported the students herself: “There was concern about their choice as it makes fun of a disability,” says the team’s meeting minutes.
The Bias Incident Team decided to follow up directly with the costume wearers, noting that “this incident is being considered a personnel issue in Residence Life” because the students were also staffers.
Photos of the mouse costumes were also removed from Facebook, though it’s unclear whether the Bias Incident Team compelled students to take them down. (The photo accompanying this article shows different people wearing the same type of costume.) The meeting minutes don’t reveal the identity of the students who donned the “three blind mice” costumes.
