As far as bad ideas go, Sexy Handmaid is right up there with the terrible Pepsi campaign where Kendall Jenner solves racism in the United States with a soda pop.

Come on folks, we can do a lot better.


The website Yandy launched this years Halloween costumes with a sexy Handmaid's Tale.

If that wasn't bad enough they added this tag to really get you in the mood.

"An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say."
"However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume."

The comments were brutal.








Gee, we cannot understand what women could possibly be offended by. Especially with the outfit inspiring comments like these from some men.



And women.





The company removed the costume and issued this official statement:

"Yandy always has stood, and will continue to stand, at the forefront of encouraging our customers to 'Own Your Sexy.' We support our customers being comfortable in their skin, regardless of who they are or what they choose to wear. Our corporate ideology is rooted in female empowerment, and gender empowerment overall."
"Over the last few hours, it has become obvious that our 'Yandy Brave Red Maiden Costume' is being seen as a symbol of women's oppression, rather than an expression of women's empowerment. This is unfortunate, as it was not our intention on any level. Our initial inspiration to create the piece was through witnessing its use in recent months as a powerful protest image."
"Given the sincere, heartfelt response, supported by numerous personal stories we've received, we are removing the costume from our site."

Love yourself? Simple.

ME! ME! That's who. I can't do any of the above simply.

It's all hard. And you know it too.

It's just designed to" look" easy only to bamboozle us.

Approach everything as a burden and live by a motto...

Art is subjective.

As much as movies are universally loved, there are some that leave a big question mark.

Sometimes films, plots, and characters make no sense. AT ALL.

And that is uncomfortable for the ego.

Example...

Howard's End.

Is it art?

Am I just dumb?

Why do I care?

They say it's hard for workers to get fired from their jobs. That is unless, of course, the employee is self-sabotaging and has nothing at stake.

While there are many unemployed people desperately looking for work, there are apparently just as many of those who want nothing more than to leave a situation that makes them miserable, despite having a steady paycheck.

A trial can hinge on one simple piece of information.

All it could take for a suspect to walk free or go to jail for the rest of their lives is one single fact.

With this in mind, some lawyers will do their best to make sure that this information is buried, legally and ethically one hopes, and will never be brought up in trial.

However, for this to happen, Lawyers will still need to know this piece of information from their clients, as it otherwise could be brought up by the prosecution, effectively ending the case.
