anybody worth their weight in cat shit can see why things like this are problematic. that being said, it must be nice to live in a world where nothing touches you, and where you don't have experience being discriminated against for your entire life based on something that was never your fault. your desire for an OMG EDGY costume will never be more important than the rights of the mentally ill to be treated with respect and dignity. in short, get the fuck over it.
I couldn't agree more.

I also think they should pull any costumes labeled as "Princess" or "Queen" as not to offend homosexuals... if it prevents one feeler from becoming hurt it is worth it.

Perhaps if they changed the name to, "Psycho Killer," everyone would be happy!

How popular are horror films

" I wanted to be a cancerous lung in high school..."
Lmfao. That's the spirit. I'm kinda hoping you meant in some kind of costume party / school drama production... Not just sat in class being eaten away by malignant tumours whilst studying Tom Sawyer. Because that would be more weird than I gave you credit for.

You said it yourself, get the fuck over it....

Someone is going to wear a costume like that one night out of the year and get hammered at a party and then throw it away.

Those costumes have been out for decades and people never complained before. Our society is becoming too sensitive(bunch of pussies as you put it)...worrying about every little thing, arguing about nothing. It's getting ridiculous; pretty soon we won't be allowed to have anything of color because people will cry and think that it offends homosexuals and blacks.
