Is there no part of childhood that the kill-joys on the Left will leave alone?
For Pete’s sake, who gives a crap what children choose as a Halloween costume?
The entire Halloween obsession has reached peak stupidity thanks to one “parenting” blogger named Sachi Feris.
According to the UK Daily Mail, like so many other Halloween Kill-Joys out there, Faris is cautioning parents not to let their daughters dress up like Moana.
Now, in the interests of full disclosure, I have no idea who this Moana is. And the only reason I’ve heard of her is because of the Halloween Kill-Joys.
But on her blog “Raising Race Conscious Children” – now that sounds like a fun blog – Faris claims that children dressing up as characters from different cultural backgrounds is insensitive and “cultural appropriation.”
None of this is new. This Moana character has, for reasons I don’t understand, been Ground Zero for the Halloween Kill-Joys.
But what sets Faris apart is she is also cautioning parents about letting their daughters dress as Elsa – the princess from the movie “Frozen.”
Because Elsa – a white character – promotes white beauty.
So, don’t dress your white child as a brown Disney character. But don’t dress her as a white Disney character either.
There is just no winning with these people.
I feel like because Elsa is a White princess, and we see so many White princesses, her character sends the message that you have to be a certain way to be “beautiful.”
Starting a sentence with “I feel,” pretty much means I’m going to vehemently disagree with you.
Because nobody cares how you feel, Sachi.
If you don’t want to dress your kid in a particular costume, then don’t.
But nobody else is under any obligation to clear their child’s Halloween costume choice with kill-joys like you.
Rodgers and Hammerstein said it best in “South Pacific.”
When it comes to creating an environment where people are obsessed with race, “you’ve got to be carefully taught.”
“Raising Race Conscious Children,” my ass. What this idiot is doing is encouraging people to browbeat their children to the point where they are obsessed with race.
And stressing a child out who just wants to dress like a princess is unnecessary emotional abuse.
The person I feel pity for is Faris’ five-year-old daughter.
Describing her own discussions with her five-year-old daughter, Feris said: ‘Moana is based on real history and a real group of people.
‘If we are going to dress up a real person, we have to make sure we are doing it in a way that is respectful. Otherwise, it is like we are making fun of someone else’s culture.’
The parent, from Brooklyn, New York, revealed that after her discussion about ‘cultural appropriation’ with her daughter, the young girl decided to go as Mickey Mouse instead.
I’m trying to imagine my mother having that kind of discussion with me when, at five, I decided to dress as a Gypsy for Halloween.
Talk about sucking all the fun out of childhood.
Perhaps Faris would be satisfied if you simply put a brown paper bag over your kid’s head and send them trick-or-treating.
Then again, unless your kid is brown, you better not choose a brown paper bag. And if you choose a white paper bag, you are only perpetrating the stereotype that white paper is a superior material in the making of paper bags.
