Thanks to the new academic myth that being offended is tantamount to being physically assaulted, student leaders at Tuft University are warning their peers that wearing insensitive Halloween costumes could earn them a visit from the police.
That’s according to a recent report from The College Fix, which details the ways in which some students are working to create a Halloween safe space on campus by chilling students’ rights to free expression.
From the report:
The warning was part of a letter to the presidents of fraternities and sororities on campus signed by various Greek Life council leaders, who asked the chapter presidents to relay the message to their members.
The letter stated in part that “Greek Brothers and Sisters have worn costumes that appropriate cultures and reproduce stereotypes on race, gender, sexuality, immigrant or socioeconomic status. Outfits relating to tragedy, controversy, or acts of violence are also inappropriate. … It is our mission to promote spaces that allow members of the Tufts community to have fun without feeling as though any part of their identity is being misrepresented or targeted.”
The letter went on to warn “there are consequences for wearing an offensive costume.”
School leaders reportedly are encouraging students who feel offended to file reports with the school, promising: “Any complaints will result in full investigation by University officials and could result in serious disciplinary sanctions through Judicial Affairs.’”
The totalitarian crackdown on free expression is a trend occurring on other campuses throughout the country—and each year around Halloween the extraordinary sensitivity of many young adults is compounded as they whimper in corners for fear of cultural appropriation.
