ollege campuses are alerting the student body that they can call and consult with advisors as to whether their Halloween costume is politically correct.
“Unsure if your costume might be offensive?” asks a poster that’s been hung around campus at State University of New York at Geneseo. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions.”
The poster provides five different phone numbers and email addresses to which students can refer if they are concerned about their costume.
Wesleyan University is also offering its students the opportunity to make sure their Halloween garb is appropriately inoffensive.
Kat Timpf at National Review writes,
It’s not clear whether students will be able to reach these numbers round-the-clock through Halloween weekend. Hopefully they will. After all, Halloween is a very serious issue, and can not be treated as if it were just some fun little holiday that’s a chance for people to use their imaginations and have some fun without taking each other too seriously.
What if you want to dress up as a politically correct Halloween costume consultant for Halloween?
