Unrelated to sexism, but I wanted to post about this anyway:
Two British teenagers, Amber Langford and Annie Collinge dressed as the burning twin towers for a Halloween costume contest. Their costumes featured crashing planes, flames, models of people falling to their deaths along with hats topped with American flags. They won the contest.
They apologised, stating: “We never meant to be offensive, but we apologize if any offense was caused. The idea was to depict a serious, modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke.”
