Feminist Group Says We Don’t Need Monsters On Halloween Because ‘Reality Is Scary Enough’

Grace Carr | Reporter

A feminist group tweeted that Halloween, a holiday that celebrates everything scary, spooky and grim, isn’t necessary anymore because reality is already frightening.

The status of police violence, the wage gap, abortion access and sexual violence are among the issues that present a “scary” reality, according to a flyer tweeted by the Feminist Majority Foundation.

Feminist Majority “advocates for women’s social, political, economic equality around the world,” its Twitter bio states.

The group tweeted a myriad of other posts with the #ScaryStats tag Wednesday.

Feminist Majority’s Halloween tweets come after a number of organizations determined that traditional Halloween costumes are inappropriate for various reasons. (RELATED: The PC Police Are Ruining Halloween)

CNN reminded readers Wednesday to adhere to a 2016 flowchart advising them on which Halloween costumes are and aren’t appropriate.
