Columbia Law School joins Halloween Costume PC witch hunt

Columbia Law School joins Halloween Costume PC witch hunt

Who decides what is disrespectful?

Cracking down on “offensive” Halloween is all the rage, as we have highlighted many times.

Of course, offensive is in the eye of the beholder, yet university administrators are using expansive descriptions of what is not allowed.

Toni Airaksinen is a student at Barnard College of Columbia University.

She posted this tweet:

An email early this morning to the Dean of Columbia Law School seeking comment and an answer to the following question has not been returned as of this writing:

“who will decide what constitutes a “disrespectful” costume?”

The PC costume police are bad enough, but the broader question is even more disturbing: Why are supposed adults participating in Halloween? I left childish things behind a long time ago. The last time I went trick or treating with my friends was when I was in eighth grade, and even at that point it felt kind of silly. Going to a costume party is one thing, but dressing up in Halloween costumes and attending class or work like that is something else ~
