Someone Tried To Make These Sexy, Obviously

Oh, Halloween. How I miss the days of my childhood when everyone just wanted to be a cat or a witch or maybe a fireman. Now it seems like it's a just a whirlwind of offensive costumes, the latest being this Sexy Ebola Containment Suit getup being sold at, first spotted by Like mom always said, "You can be any sexy version of a thing you want, if you just believe."

In case you haven't been reading any sort of news in the past year or so, Ebola is a disease that's spreading pretty rapidly throughout the world, and has a mortality rate ranging from 30 to 70 percent, depending on where you are. So, while I'm a big proponent of the "finding humor in even the most depressing situations makes life a lot more bearable" theory, even I'm not entirely on board with any sort of Ebola jokes this October.

Oh, and if the costume wasn't already gag-worthy enough, the site (which looks like it's going to give my laptop a few viruses of its own, BTW) also takes a misogynistic spin, saying "Ending plague isn’t the endeavor of a single woman, so be sure to check out our men’s Ebola Containment Costume for a great couple’s costume idea.” Ah, yes. All the single ladies, please stand in a corner and weep until the men have chased Ebola off the planet.

Also, can I just say that that's, like, barely sexy? Those yellow boots are heinous. Bad job all around, offensive costume designers.
