  • Rebecca made the claim that judgment and embarrassment aren’t the same
  • The reasons being for dressing would be because its fun, because its Halloween, its not socially acceptable to dress up any other days of the year, personal desire, it could be funny, we could get extra credit for it, to show off our costumes, make connections with other people wearing costumes, its a tradition, or it could be not a tradition for some people and they want to change that, getting your cost worth out of your costume, or to join into the festivities
  • counter proposal because as a scholar bill needs to be able to give an academic reason for points that are given
