The University of Florida Is Now Offering Counselling To Any Student 'Offended By A Halloween Costume'

Consider the University of Florida officially triggered.

So, the University of Florida is perhaps a little over-sensitive…

The college published a blog post this week, announcing that should they be so unbelievably hurt by a Halloween costume they deem offensive, they are able to seek legitimate counselling. Yeah…

“If you choose to participate in Halloween activities, we encourage you to think about your choices of costumes and themes. Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions.”

Okay – that makes sense. Stuff like Blackface is ridiculously offensive, and it’s understandable that if someone saw it, they might need to talk to somebody about it. But there was a little more to the post that seems to be raising a few eyebrows…

“Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”

So basically, you can choose to wear anything, and anyone can choose to be offended by it. Whether it has literally nothing to do with race, gender, culture, or religion, it can still be offensive enough to warrant counselling. That’s right, even that sexy Shrek costume you’ve been planning for months could, and probably would somehow offend a millennial student.

I’m sure the 24/7 hotline the university has set up will be treated with complete respect and legitimacy…
