FSU asks students to dress up as “extraterrestrials” instead of “illegal aliens”, says Harambe costumes are “cultural appropriation”

Florida State University is taking all the fun out of Halloween by infecting it with political correctness.

A display at the university in the Deviney Hall tells students what costumes could be offensive and it's completely shocking.

According to Campus Reform, the bulletin board is adapted from an ad campaign titled “My Culture is Not a Costume”.

Campus Reform says that “The FSU board includes several photos from the original ad campaign, which began at Ohio University in 2011, and six additional photos of Halloween costumes that can be considered culturally appropriative, including an Arabian princess, a samurai warrior, and a bullfighter.”

In addition, there are written examples such as “headdresses” and “Harambe” - the gorilla who was killed by the Cincinnati zoo and has since become a very popular internet meme.

However, while claiming Harambe is not allowed, the board says “any animal” would make a “great Halloween costume.”

On a hilarious note, the board suggests students dress as “extraterrestrial aliens” as opposed to a “Latinx alien”.

Absolutely ridiculous.

I didn’t know that gorillas had a culture that could be appropriated. Also, where is the outrage over others appropriating white culture? (Democracy, science, technology, capitalism, secularism.)

OK. Fine. Now who appointed these people the social context monitor?

Wearing a tie could be considered appropriating Greek cultural history.

Wearing a pleated skirt could be considered appropriating Scottish culture. Something about wearing plaid.

Lipstick is appropriating traditional Egyptian culture.

Wearing a beret is cultural appropriation.

Non French citizens eating French fries, non Scots drinking Scottish whisky, non Orientals eating egg rolls, non Peruvians eating eating potato, non Polish drinking vodka, non Inuit wearing mukluks, et cetera, is cultural appropriation by the SJW standard.

In some way everything and anything can be cultural appropriation.

If someone shows up wearing a sombrero. ninja outfit, a gorilla outfit (of any gorilla), a vampire outfit, what will they do? Call the police and lay charges of cultural appropriation? Dressing as they wish? Insensitivity to their safe space?

Give us a break!
