Patrick Bateman Halloween Costume

He is a racist, misogynistic, torturous, homophobic, and anti-Semitic, but he feigns concern for equality and "traditional moral values" for the sake of his public image of modernity, or simply out of the misguided notion that this would render him more agreeable. His peers ridicule him behind his back, Evelyn is cheating on him, his own lawyer calls him a “bloody ass-kisser” and people outside of his social circle call him "yuppie trash".


He has nothing approaching feelings for anyone else in his life, except for his secretary, Jean, who he knows is in love with him and who he passively accepts that he will probably marry one day. Even then, however, it is made clear that he sees her not as a person, but more as a beautiful object that should not be destroyed. He talks to her throughout the novel and neglects her feelings for him.
