Your Halloween Costume: A Bigot

9:57 am - 10/23/2009
The offensive costume is a Halloween staple. Because some people, you just can't reach teach. Combine a need for attention with alcohol and some markers and duct tape and sometimes you get something great. Sometimes you get something else. But we do expect businesses to know better. Read on for this year's most bigoted, misogynistic, racist costumes. All available from legitimate retailers. Including Amazon.com.

Teen Asian Dragon Lady
The world of Suzie Wong includes registering as a sex offender, apparently.

"Fee Ling"
It's even cheap. Just like all Chinese stuff.

Barack Obama
While the above is the worst example, why would you even try to do this? Because you're racist, that's why.

Pumpkin Head Obama
Is this racist? Might be. Is it beyond stupid? You bet your ass it is. Would the only person to wear something like this probably be kinda' racist? No doubt.

The Vagina
"Way to go brah! Let me touch your clit! Oh, I can't find it! Get it? Ha ha. Gimme' another Bud Lite Lime." Hey women who sleep with these men human dildos, you're only encouraging them. (For shame, Amazon.)

Illegal Alien
Ha! Get it? It's a play on words, like going as delinquent beauty queen "Miss Behavin." Except racist. Target actually got into trouble for carrying this mask's full body counterpart. But this mask is so much worse; like a masterpiece from the Charlie Chan period.

Ha! So gay.

Okay, Gaylien is the worst because you would have to spend the entire night explaining what you are. I mean worst as in worst costume choice. I can't decide which one is the most offensive.

What's everyone going to be? I have no idea if I want to go slutty or not.
theartistprince 23rd-Oct-2009 08:22 pm (UTC)
and Halloween masks suck in general. Lame for a costume and you can't drink easily out of them.
misatojaganshi 23rd-Oct-2009 08:25 pm (UTC)
vagina costume? JFC!
also i wish people would stop randomly using the word ~geisha when they clearly have no fucking idea what it means or what actual geisha and maiko wear!

Don't forget to click on the link for true works of art like this.

UGH IKR. Geisha =/= Oiran TYVM.
preeho 23rd-Oct-2009 08:26 pm (UTC)
wow, glad such creative people exist - how else would those racist bastards be able to buy a halloween costume? I mean, we have to think of them, right?

I'm going to be Space (like the Final Frontier) - mostly because I already own a teeshirt w/ planets all over it, and tights w/ stars on them. And i'm cheap. Also I get to wear really cool make up and lots of glitter!

People dressed up as Native Americans piss me off the most, because it's so common. An ethnicity is not a costume.
theartistprince 23rd-Oct-2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
People dressed up as slutty Native Americans piss me off the most. Halloween is not a 1960's Parisian cabaret.

Slutty Snow White, yes. Slutty Native American... :\

Gaylien is an Andorian rip-off.

EVEN KHAN IS ANGERED BY THIS (although he blames Kirk for it)
samanarana 23rd-Oct-2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
When I see people on the streets on Halloween wearing costumes like these I make sure NOT to make eye contact, talk to them, or take a picture with them. >_____> Those costumes are so awkward even beyond their offensiveness!!
celtic_thistle 23rd-Oct-2009 08:36 pm (UTC)
What the ever loving fuck.
schmiss 23rd-Oct-2009 08:40 pm (UTC)
LOL vagina costume.

I'm going to be Orly Taitz. And yes, I am preparing to explain who that is to every single person who speaks to me.
pichipai 23rd-Oct-2009 08:45 pm (UTC)

Don't forget to "OK OK" and "IF YOU LET ME FINISH" at every opportunity xD
discostare 23rd-Oct-2009 08:45 pm (UTC)
people find these funny?
ultradowney 23rd-Oct-2009 08:46 pm (UTC)
What pisses me off (clearly the illegal alien bit) but every year someone dresses as a Mexican by wearing a poncho and sombrero. -_-

Also, I'm going to be Elvis Costello, idc if no one is going to know who I am, I don't even have plans yet :(
theartistprince 23rd-Oct-2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
if we went to the same bar, I would know ♥
afa_mom 23rd-Oct-2009 08:47 pm (UTC)
how are the obama ones racist

They're all pretty awful, but I think the vagina costume could be saved if the person wearing it went with a friend in a penis costume.

(And OF COURSE someone else already had the same idea as I found out when googling "penis costume". See video at the source location above.)

The Obama mask looks like an Arnold Schwarzenegger mask that got painted over.
lisaee 23rd-Oct-2009 08:53 pm (UTC)
... People dress up as vaginas for Halloween? Evidentally I've been attending the wrong parties.
dyfferent 23rd-Oct-2009 09:10 pm (UTC)
There is a costume of 'The Shocker'. I suppose you could go as a vagina if your friend was The Shocker.

I'd avoid those people, of course.
teacup_werewolf 23rd-Oct-2009 08:53 pm (UTC)
:< I still need to find the gear to go as a mad scientist....
lanrek 23rd-Oct-2009 08:56 pm (UTC)
How is the vagina one offensive? I think this article confuses the words "tacky" and "offensive" in a lot of these.
happythree 23rd-Oct-2009 09:43 pm (UTC)
I wondered the same. Maybe it's because it's lewd?... I mean, if it were a vagina costume that also incorporated some stereotype about women it would be offensive, but yeah, idgi.
illogical_me 23rd-Oct-2009 08:56 pm (UTC)
I was going to dress up as a magnet this Halloween, but One Act got in the way of my plans.
Instead, I will be acting on all Hallow's eve for a shiny trophy and the chance to do the play again for state.

Also, my god these are awful asffffssss.
modelrockets 23rd-Oct-2009 10:24 pm (UTC)
OMG the magnet thing is so kick-ass.
cattyhunts 23rd-Oct-2009 08:57 pm (UTC)
NGL, I actually lik the first costume posted.
alil2sarcastic 24th-Oct-2009 02:49 pm (UTC)
Lol. Same.
rex_dart 23rd-Oct-2009 08:59 pm (UTC)
I'm not seeing what's actually offensive about a vagina costume.
victorialupin 23rd-Oct-2009 11:44 pm (UTC)
IA. Stupid, yes, but not really offensive.
septembrist 23rd-Oct-2009 09:00 pm (UTC)
I think I'd like the vagina if I didn't know that some stupid idiot would wear it in that context of sexism and ignorance.
jorajo 24th-Oct-2009 04:07 am (UTC)
Yeah. I don't find it offensive but I can see it being an open target for so much horrible shit.
lastingchances 23rd-Oct-2009 09:06 pm (UTC)

I didn't know people dressed up as vulvas for Halloween.
juunanagou18 23rd-Oct-2009 09:32 pm (UTC)
frontyardninja 23rd-Oct-2009 09:12 pm (UTC)
I always think I have the best costume idea but it never pans out and I end up going as a zorro-mask + wizard beard + mountie hat... weirdo.

And then I only get apples.

Halloween is the best.
violetrose 23rd-Oct-2009 09:16 pm (UTC)
The illegal alien one literally left me speechless. Actually, pretty much all of them did.

I just don't... what is this shit? All these costumes are offensive, disgusting and just wrong. Why, unless you were a bigoted fuckbag, would you want to wear any of them? Seriously.

(Also, sort-of feminist rant: I'm a little tired of menstruation always being made fun of. Yes, women go through it, and it's a bodily function for us; but it's not made fun of on the same scale, or way, that say, taking a dump is.)
whosmurry 23rd-Oct-2009 09:39 pm (UTC)
I was going to try to be balloon boy's balloon, but that seems too complicated. Now I think I'm going to go as a Sim.
whosmurry 23rd-Oct-2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
Oh, and back on topic: WTF? Who thinks that's okay?
