As discussed on The Five, The University of Colorado Boulder has asked that students don’t dress in any “offensive” Halloween costumes. Most of the non-approved costume ideas did sound inappropriate for a college campus (sex kittens and bunnies and gophers or whatever). But, Cowboys?
Okay, so there are many people who are anti-Halloween altogether. They cite its Pagan roots and abstain from any part of it. Then there are the rest of Americans who look at the holiday as a time to dress up and get candy.
Should college students be restricted from dressing up like hookers because it’s Halloween? I wouldn’t say that’s a bad rule to have. It’s a school, after all. And school’s should have rules. I’m just afraid that our country has gotten SO PC, that you really can’t win anymore.
