yanbu, revolting.

what sort of a pathetic arsehole would someone have to be to wear a t-shirt like that?

SuePurblybilt Sat 18-Jun-11 20:52:16

YANBU. But take comfort that they are worn by knobbers who only have sex with Ms Righthand and only then when their mum is at Asda.

It wouldn't offend me as such, but I might be quite judgey about the person wearing it...

Did you see someone wearing it or see it on sale in a store? If I saw someone wearing it, I'd think each to their own, but they lack class, style, decency etc.

If I saw it in a store for sale I'd find it greatly distasteful. I'm definitely not a prude, but something like that is open to questioning by youngsters in a public space and therefore awkward answers. No, it's not appropriate in a general store.

Sybil the sort who is in no danger of dying that way because his t-shirt has served as a warning to all of humankind?

omg. That's really horrible. And I'm not a prude either!

CareyFakes Sat 18-Jun-11 20:56:25

I'd have laughed probably. Not what I'd wear personally

Grim. I would comment he may have more chance the other way round.

People who wear things like that do it to cover up their lack of personality .

YANBU. Helpfully though, the real message behind these t-shirts is actually:

"I am a complete fucking loser. Please avoid me."

I saw a hideous t-shirt for sale the other day in a card shop in a large shopping centre. It was black with white writing that said 'I've had it up to here with midgets', with a horizontal line about belly button height. I was shock and just walked out of the store.

By sheer coincidence I'd just seen two different people with dwarfism during my lunch hour that day. Can you imagine how they'd have felt if they'd have seen it? sad

I'd just wonder- what on earth does it mean?! Beyond the literal meaning. Would you walk up to someone, shake their hand, and calmly announce..."death by this, death by that"? Treating the F-word as something completely normal.

The midget T shirt is nowhere near as bad. It's don't need that tough a skin to get over it and even be able to laugh at it. It doesn't mean anything specific, but at least it's got a base meaning. Everyone'll know that the wearer has nothing really against midgets- or that it's something so personal that no one else shares it. It's lighthearted...

Horrible, crass and chav but if you yourself own T-shirts with swearwords on then YABU to be offended.

worraliberty Sat 18-Jun-11 22:27:21

Oh now see the midgets one has just made me laugh out loud!! grin

But I wouldn't wear it cos it is in poor taste I admit.

LadyFlumpalot Sat 18-Jun-11 22:40:09

Ha! Went to Download festival a couple of years ago (Metal, goth and rock) and some of those tops....

"Dead chicks can't say no."
"C*NT!" I'm sorry all die-hard MN swearers, I don't like the word so am not going to type it.
"It's not rape if you shout Surprise. It's surprise sex!"

Etc, etc.

I hate inuendo T shirt slogans.About 10 years ago I was waiting in the doctor's surgery when a very pretty young girl came in ,she was perhaps 15 at the most.She took off her jacket and displayed a large rabbit picture with the logo 'I FCUK LIKE A '. Try and explain that to your 5 year old who has just learned to read.

DoMeDon Sat 18-Jun-11 22:53:32

YANBU - seems 'adults' right to express themselves is more important than the right to protect DC from sexual innuendo/swearing/general twuntery or other people's right to not be confronted by horrible shite.

It's like porno song lyrics & music videos, violent TV & games, innuendo TV ads - all so pathetic and childish. With maturity should come some sense of appropriateness and responsibility.

If you shouted CUNT in the middle of Waitrose would it be a public order offence? Oh but a T-shirt discussing necrophilia/rape/ect - that's ok hmm

Think there should be a law where you get an instant on the spot fine....and told to remove the shirt.

CarnivalBizarre Sat 18-Jun-11 23:07:54

UGH! I would be inclined to think that someone wearing that T shirt is probably unlikely to have ever had sex before and is wearing it to big his tiny todger up - KNOBBER!

I think all logo t shirts should be banned on pain of death, they make the wearers look like complete tools imo

Saw one the other day:

Drink triple
See double
Act single

Oddly enough, the rough looking chav wearing it was alone. Who'd've thunk it?
