"To make a costume out of a marginalized identity reduces that person and community to a stereotype for privileged people to abuse."

Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume has sparked indignation on social media.

The costume, entitled "Call Me Caitlyn Unisex Adult Costume," is a recreation of Jenner's iconic Vanity Fair cover. Sites like AnytimeCostumes.com and WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com are selling the costume, which ranges in price from $49.90 to $74.99. On both of these sites the costume is found under the "Humorous" section.

I ran across an article about this earlier in the evening.  For whatever reasons, varied as they are, Caitlyn Jenner has really struck a good number of nerves.  The woman can't catch a break --   She can do no right in the eyse of some.  She can't do enough in the eyes of many.  She's lucky enough to have the money to go all out in her transition.  If she waited this long, why'd she bother at all.  And now she's a halloween costume.

Hiya Charlie, Michael, and Monica. I Have Also Just Signed The Petition. Something as Offensive To The TS/TG/TV/CD/LGBT World in General Upsets Me. Thank You So Much, For Bringing This To Our Attention. Take Care, And Very Best Wishes, Stephanie. xoxo
