    University of Florida offers counseling for students troubled by 'offensive' Halloween costumes
    • UF said a counselor would be available 24/7 to help 'impacted' students
    A memo released by UF on Monday encouraged students to think about their 'choices of costumes and themes'.
    'Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions,' the statement read.
    'Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.'

    The team will provide support to 'those that were impacted' by connecting them with the 'appropriate services and resources', including a counselor available 24/7 by phone at UF's Counseling and Wellness Center, according to the statement. UF added that the team will also 'educate those who were involved' in any reported incidents of bias.

    UF isn't the only school asking students to think twice before deciding what they want to be for Halloween this year.
    The University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse planned a seminar this week titled 'Is Your Costume Racist?'

    If, somehow, Worldstar could be smuggled in a balloon in the colon of a drug mule, it would be more Florida than Florida. This school needs to have several seats for this nonsense.

    Also, Ohio is the x-rays of people with things crammed up their asses.

    This has been "What is that state like?" with your hostess with the mostest, QC.

    Black and Orange Day? Meet the New Wording For a Toronto Kids' Halloween


    Tomorrow in many of the city schools kids will be having fun on "Black and Orange Day."

    The
    Toronto District School Board has already taken measures into its own hands making sure that tomorrow's fun filled holiday spirit will not infringe on anyone's beliefs. While to many it may sound a bit silly it makes a bit of sense. Every year, schools have to deal with the C-word in December.

    The school board has outlined six reasons why Halloween had to be changed for this school term.

    1. “Halloween is a religious day of significance for Wiccans and therefore should be treated respectfully.”

    2. “Peer and social/media consumer pressures target all children and their families as consumers of costumes, makeup, food products, etc. Many students and their families can feel this socio-economic marginalization keenly.”

    3. “The images and icons associated with consumer-oriented Halloween can come into conflict with some students’ and their families’ religious beliefs.”

    4. “The food products that are marketed heavily during the Halloween period can come into conflict with students’ and their families’ dietary habits.”

    5. “Some students have had first-hand traumatic experiences of violence that make talking about death, ghosts, etc., extremely alienating.”

    6. “Many recently arrived students in our schools share no background cultural knowledge of trick-or-treating or the commercialization of death as ‘fun.’”

    Vermont is like a gay wedding with a golden retriever ring bearer.

    California is like a Porta potty at a construction site with a pine tree air freshener hanging from the ceiling.

    I can do this all day.
