to help you all out!
They don't want you to inadvertently offend with your choice of costume this Halloween. Here are 14 pictures of costumes with an explanation as to
why you shouldn't wear them.
As you might imagine, cultural appropriation features heavily!
I like the one that tells you not to wear a dreadlock wig. And then you aren't supposed to dress as a convict either because that could be
insensitive to trivialize the prison system. The preggo belly and white dress that makes you a reality TV star in the making is also bad because of
it's body shaming implications. Don't dress like Hannibal Lector because you are making fun of mental health. And you can't be a scary hobo clown
because ... it makes fun of the homeless.
I wonder what they'd say if I sent my kid out in his martial arts outfit? Likely that's cultural appropriation, too. Heck, he probably shouldn't
even be learning Tae Kwon Do because he's not Korean. I guess I should start looking for his lacrosse lessons ...
