Going to university can be so daunting these days so it’s good that administrators and student unions at several Canadian universities offer guidance on the many complications associated with Halloween parties.
Gone are the days when someone could don an edgy costume for laughs or shock value. That’s too traumatizing for the precious hothouse flowers in 2016.
Wearing the wrong togs today might be “culturally insensitive” or “politically incorrect” or worse, it might act as a “trigger” to super-sensitive students.
Recently, a National Post story examined some university policies on Halloween across the continent.
It was at times hard to tell if I was reading the Post or The Onion.
But I waded through it for you, so watch as I share some of the more ridiculous policies and the logic-challenging double standards, especially when it comes to the election in the U.S., applied by the progressives.
My advice to kids who really want to dress up as an Indian or an Islamist? Pull an Elizabeth Warren and claim you’re one-sixteenth native or Arab.
And if you can’t prove you’re an Indian or Islamist, just say you identify as one.
And if the gatekeepers still say no, then tell them you’ll file a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
If you use that line on a “Social Justice Centre Supervisor” you’re gonna scare the living crap out of her, and isn’t that what Halloween is all about?
