That's what my son's new tattoo on his chest says. It supposed to finish ..."than a loaded gun".

Thoughts please?

Every time ge falls asleep on the safa, fill in an alternative daft ending to the sentence... Has he recently been dumped? Or beaten at a judo tournament by a woman? ;)

Obviously all humans are more dangerous than guns, intrinsically... stupid sexist tattoo though.

Nasty.

I hope he realises that any woman worth her salt will be out of his bed in a flash once she sees that. Does it reflect his attitude to women in general? And how old is he?

Classy

That is not nice.

I hope my dd never meets him, and that if she does she runs a mile.

Yes, he's recently been dumped.

I've tried to warn him that a sweeping misogynist statement will do him no favours and to keep it mysterious, I.e. by not finishing it off.

I hope plenty more of you will add to this thread as the mighty collective voice of MN might put him off doing such a misguided thing.

Actually, if that is how he views women - tell him to finish the tattoo.

It will serve as a warning to future girlfriends.

Men are a lot worse than women.

My first boyfriend (greasy stoner type) got the Welsh flag tattooed on his forearm. His mum went absolutely mental. Just looking at my toddler now thinking I wonder how old he will be when he gets his first tribal tatt sad

Ah well it's done now OP. It will be part of his life story.

If he's getting that as a tattoo, I'm not sure he will care what a load of women on the internet have to say about it!

Tell him it's very kind of him to warn off future girlfriends like this. If I met someone with a tattoo like that, I'd run for the hills.

'with the safety catch off?'

gordyslovesheep Fri 11-Jul-14 10:43:18

yes - tell him to follow it up with 'I hate women' on his forehead just to make doubly sure we get the message

Just research a load of boring stats about the crime, violence and homicide figures and print them out for him. Then when he's asleep cross out the "wo".

Or is the "danger" it's referring to the danger of having your sexist ass dumped? He's just made sure that will happen plenty more times.

BigfootFiles Fri 11-Jul-14 10:43:42

There is another way of reading it. Without it being finished, surely the implication is that the line is a label on, and refers to, him?

So he's saying a woman is more dangerous than him.

Still sexist, but would his mates not rip the piss?

I'm reminded of the only good joke in The Internship

"What does my neck tattoo say? 'Make reasonable choices' "

TheFirmament Fri 11-Jul-14 10:46:57

He could of course make it good by finishing it off with something inoffensive and undeniably true.

Like "...than a hamster".

SaucyJack Fri 11-Jul-14 10:47:34

I quite like it [shocked]

I wouldn't find it particularly misogynist on the right man. More passionate? He'd have to be really really REALLY good in bed to carry it off tho.

BigfootFiles Fri 11-Jul-14 10:47:44

And I would totally swerve anyone who had that tattoo, finished or not. I like tattoos, but I do believe they tell you a lot about a person. He's telling everyone he's ignorant, at best.

MrsKoala Fri 11-Jul-14 10:48:24

It's just such a tragic cliche tho isn't it? Like most of the awful slogans people have inked on themselves. I'd just think 'sad pretentious loser thinking he was being all philosophical but trotting out pathetic and hackneyed cliches'. Please don't say it's in that scrolly writing too? At least it's better than that quote from pulp fiction which got popular - just cringingly painful.

Also can you imagine having sex with that slogan looming down on you? <i don't think i'd be able to stop laughing/retching>

DioneTheDiabolist Fri 11-Jul-14 10:48:30

...when she sees a stupid tat.

Thumbwitch Fri 11-Jul-14 10:48:42

What a tit he is. He wants to stay single for ever then, does he?
