Tell Walmart to stop selling "cutter" makeup tattoos.
Browsing Halloween products on Walmart's website I found this. I have no issues with blood and gore and the tattoos are appropriate for the season. The name, however, is in insanely poor taste. The "cutter" moniker often refers to self-harm and to trivialize mental illness and its physical manifestations is appalling. Racist and sexist costumes get called out to make the public aware that that behavior is not okay. The same ethos should be applied to mental illness. My anxiety is not a costume. Having suicidal thoughts is not a costume. Our nation keeps talking about the "mental health crisis" that has been deemed the cause of mass shootings. I'm pretty sure making light of these issues, effectively backing those who are struggling into a corner, is not a good starting point. Walmart needs to stop selling the product until the manufacturer changes the name.
