Culture of Victimhood in America: Village People Edition

So, I actually would have thought that the complaint would be that dressing up as the Village People is too gay.

But apparently, what's offensive about dressing up like a Village Person is that it makes fun of North American Indians or something and is therefore racist. 

I really think that the Village People (are any of them still alive?) would be horrified that anyone thought their costumes were racist. They were merely supposed to be sexually enticing to other men. 

Now, in the pecking order of victimhood, Muslim generally trumps everything except for raaaaacism. Gay comes a close second and then I guess Native American is somewhere down the list.

It's so hard to keep the priorities straight gay bi two-spirited, queer, questioning, trans, in transition.
