So a company called Yandy.com decided to add a sexy Handmaid’s Tale outfit to their online store.
Behold the “Brave Red Maiden Costume.”
What will they think of next?
But of course the women who fear America under Trump will become a puritanical dystopian nightmare were furious that the costume wasn’t sufficiently puritanical.
I know. Shocker isn’t it? Who knew modern-day feminists were cranky, humorless kill-joys?
But isn’t that costume the polar opposite of the puritanical world these chicks fear?
Maybe it’s me, but I think the angry feminists are just pissed off because none of them would be able to pull off that look.
You’d think girls who truly believe that Trump and Pence want to police women’s choices wouldn’t be trying to police other women’s choices.
Clearly there’s a market for the “Sexy Fill-in-the-Blank” costumes.
Our society doesn't take the rape of real women seriously, why should they take the rape of fictional women seriously? https://t.co/aiKMn0N3xJ

Actually, I think it’s more that we don’t take you seriously, honey.
Clearly @SeriousMolly here hasn’t gone to their website and checked out the rest of their inventory.
I went to Yandy.com. And for the record, none of their costumes could ever be mistaken for puritanical.
In fact, they’re pretty much slutty, trashy crap.
For example, Yandy loves, loves, LOVES the slutty nun’s habits.
[Though, oddly enough, not one “Hottie Hijab” to be found.]
In fact, you could argue the “sexy school girl” themed costumes (of which they have tons) promote statutory rape. I wonder what @SeriousMolly thinks of that.
But make a sexy version of a Handmaid’s Tale and that’s a bridge too far.
Now, it probably doesn’t surprise you that Yandy.com caved to the Puritanical Police.
(Not to be mistaken for the “Officer Pat U. Down” police. Yes, that’s really one of their costumes.)
Yandy yanked their “Brave Red Maiden Costume” from their website last night.
But of course.
And, groveling on hands and knees to the Puritanical Police, Yandy released this statement:
Yandy always has stood, and will continue to stand, at the forefront of encouraging our customers to “Own Your Sexy”. We support our customers being comfortable in their skin, regardless of who they are or what they choose to wear. Our corporate ideology is rooted in female empowerment, and gender empowerment overall.
If that were true, you would stick to your guns. Some women might actually want to dress like a sexy Handmaid. Shouldn’t they be able to “own their sexy” if they so choose to own it as a sexy Handmaid? Shouldn’t they be comfortable in their skin?
Over the last few hours, it has become obvious that our “Yandy Brave Red Maiden Costume” is being seen as a symbol of women’s oppression, rather than an expression of women’s empowerment.
Okay, stop right there.
FYI, Yandy.com sells sexy gladiator costumes. Gladiators. You know. The oppressed slaves who were forced to fight to the death for the pleasure and entertainment of the people.
Sounds just a tad oppressiony to me, Yandy.
This is unfortunate, as it was not our intention on any level. Our initial inspiration to create the piece was through witnessing its use in recent months as a powerful protest image.
Who believes that?
“Oh, look at those angry, unattractive women dressed like puritanical handmaids! I’m so inspired, I’m going to sell a sexy version of that outfit!”
Anybody else wondering what inspired the sexy nuns costumes?
Or the underage sex kitten costumes?
Any old how. Yandy.com closed their statement with this:
Given the sincere, heartfelt response, supported by numerous personal stories we’ve received, we are removing the costume from our site.
It wasn’t a “sincere, heartfelt response.” It was a Leftist Flying Monkey Feminist rage mob.
Just a heads up, Yandy. But none of those humorless, angry crones were ever going to shop at your website — even if you never offered a sexy Handmaid costume.
But you caved to them anyway.
However, I agree that you should remove the Brave Red Maiden Costume from your line-up.
After all, “Brave” is hardly a word I would use to describe Yandy.com.
Hat tip The New York Post.
By the way:
Did the angry puritanical rage mob get angry when the Emmy Awards did this in 2017?
Okay, I’m done.
