UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS BANS COWBOY HATS BECAUSE ‘OFFENSIVE STEREOTYPES’

As a Texan, I want to say this.

Politically correct thinking has run amok when a Texan can’t wear a cowboy hat on Halloween of all days.

Folks are running around our state’s flagship campus looking to be offended, and when there aren’t any real offensive things taking place, they make this kind of shiplap up! (See what I did there? I think Chip Gaines would be happy with this one.)

It is beyond the pale.

Now that my rant is over, here is the rest of the story.

In an attempt to ban ‘offensive costumes’, the University of Texas at Austin has published a 29 point guideline on what is, and what is not, an acceptable Halloween costume.

Here’s a brief list of the costumes and themes considered harmful by the University of Texas:

  1. Cowboys and Indians – anything “Squaw” or any generalized depiction of an indigenous person or peoples;
  2. “South of the Border” and “Fiesta” themes;
  3. “Ghetto Fabulous” or “Urban” themes;
  4. “Pimps and Hoes” theme;
  5. “Trailer Trash” theme;
  6. “Chicks and Hicks” “Rednecks”;

Are you kidding me? On the one day that it isn’t considered taboo to dress in a costume, you want to ban all but ‘politically correct’ costumes?

Give. Me. A. Break.

No wonder Donald Trump is doing so well right now.

Americans (and Texans) are fed up with this PC nonsense.

Here’s the full list published by UT. (Warning: You may vomit)
