Ranty Friday this week is about offensive T shirts and why, well, why I find them offensive.
Whilst strolling around our local market last Sunday I saw a lady, of a similar age to me, walk towards me wearing that T-shirt. I was stunned. Nay, disgusted actually.
A) why would you buy a T-shirt like that; B) why would you wear it out in public?
I get that the world is saturated with “Keep Calm and print this slogan on another piece of tat” and this means that people are unhappy with it. I do get that, I am getting pretty bored with it all now. They are everywhere and linked to every conceivable activity.
But would I ever wear a T-shirt to show my displeasure? A T-shirt with the F word on it?
Why would anybody do that?
When I go shopping, or take my children out shopping do I want them to be confronted with a T shirt with the F word on it? The week before I saw somebody with a tattoo on his side that also had that word included in it. And there he was wandering around, with his T shirt OFF, with his family, proudly displaying his body and that word.
“What does that say, daddy?” Can you imagine?
I am not against the word, I have been known to use it myself on occasion (sorry mum) but you would never see me wearing it on a T shirt.
Would you? Am I just being a prude?
