    Dial P for Psycho

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24278768

    As a person who has family members with mental health issues, most recently my brother being sectioned and spending a week at His MixuDave's Pleasure in the Royal Ed, I find people getting offended at this offensive.

    Thoughts?

    You'd have to be mental to be offended by these costumes.

    To be fair, I can see why the term mental patient is a bit insensitive. Surely Psycho Killer or something would be more appropriate?

    Presumably if they'd called it a Hannibal Lecter style costume, that would have been OK?

    It strikes me that linking mental health treatment with extreme violence is hardly likely to help combat the stigma that people with mental health problems often attract unfairly.

    Couldn't they have called the fancy dress Horror Movie Costumes?

    Like you I hate folk that get all offended on someone else's behalf. Fukk sake it's bad enough in the world without being able to laugh at stuff like this.

    As an aside, on Sunday at Whitekirk there were two boys playing who looked like they had these orange boiler suits on. It was a WTF moment. Must ask Tiger if he saw them

    These brainstorming meetings must be $#@!in magic to be a fly on the wall. I mean, at what point does some tool come up with the suggestion of giving a product a name that, to 99.9% of the population is obviously inappropriate, and the chairperson decides 'Yeah, I like that'?
    Game's rigged, why bother?

    I dont think the costumes are offensive at all.

    Labelling them as "mental patient" and "psycho ward" is offensive and bloody stupid though.

    I am surprised anyone might find the costumes in themselves offensive -- that's not the issue. It is the labelling of the costumes in that they reinforce stereotypes about mental illness that is unhelpful.
