Student magazine warns against 'racist' Halloween costumes

The latest issue of a magazine run by Ohio State University students features a flow-chart designed to help students determine whether their Halloween costume is racist.

The guide published in 1870 Magazine allows students to ask themselves a series of questions about their costume ideas, directing them to one of several determinations based on their responses.

"As long as you're a sexy vampire or along those lines, you should be good."

“Is it politically charged?” the chart asks of costume ideas that pertain to “something serious.” If yes, the magazine is interested only in whether makes fun of Donald Trump, in which case the chart advises the reader to “DO IT.”

If the costume is serious, but not politically charged, then the chart asks whether the student plans to dress as Prince, which it only considers acceptable if the wearer is not white.

With regard to costumes based on memes, the chart is anxious about anything derived from “4Chan or Reddit,” unless it comes from “the wholesome memes Twitter account.”

If not, it asks whether the costume “validates white supremacists,” with a “yes” answer leading directly to a bubble saying “What the f**k is wrong with you? Try again.” A “no” answer, on the other hand, is met with apparent skepticism, as the chart then asks follow-up questions including “Does it require blackface, milk, or a swastika?” and “Does it humanize inhumane people?”

The flow-chart takes a rather more charitable view towards “ironically sexy” costumes, welcoming students to dress up as a “sexy construction worker” or “animal of some sort,” but cautioning them against costumes featuring “traditional head wear from other cultures.”

Donning foreign headgear is fine for students who are not white, it elaborates, but those who are white should “try a new costume idea.”

Campus Reform reached out to the editor of 1870 Magazine for comment, but has not received a response.

And what happens if you break those ridiculous rules? Just do the opposite. Who cares what they say.

I am trying to comprehend the leftist newspeak.

So when fat and ugly SJWs attend 'slut walks' are they being 'IRONICALLY SEXY'?


Does this mean I can't go as a vampire, werewolf or other monster then?

Monsters are people too!

Now PETA are after people that dress as animals?!!

It's so confusing!!!

@Diana - all those months making a papier mâché Pepe head...wasted!!!

Guys, i need my safe space and coloring books!!!

Comment by Diana on October 12, 2017 at 5:55pm

DTOM, the chart clearly shows that Pepe in any form is not acceptable (they even flip you off).  I don't understand the milk thing either or why there is no mention of bananas, watermelon or cotton.

Comment by DTOM on October 12, 2017 at 5:38pm

So does this mean I can't go as a very rare Pepe the Wehrmacht frog?

N.B - The only 'politically charged' costume option involves being anti, such freedom of choice.

“Does it require milk'...?

What does that even mean!!?

How about you non-Celts stop your cultural appropriation from the traditions of the Scots and Irish?

Oh wait...this bullshit is arbitrary and only works in your favor.

How wonderful, they want to control everything. Isn't it provoking disobedience?
