I think it was off anyway but especially on a boy who looked about 12-14. Just back from local restaurant with my kids and this teenager's t shirt said

" Bitch, ride a unicorn ". Am I just being po faced? It was my 9yr old who spotted it and was awed/shocked.

Yanbu, totally disgusting. What twat allows their child to wear that.

YANBU but i would have probably been so shocked I would have laughed, my 9yo dd would have just been confused by that slogan!!

Agree totally. Also -don't get it confused

My 9yo wouldn't get it. Neither do I?

I assume it's something sexual. Unicorn horn? Penis? Ride me?

SurlyCue Sun 10-May-15 20:59:34

I dont get it either but the use of the word bitch makes it inappropriate to me.

If it's this one my teen niece has it. I dont think it's bad

My 9 yr old was agog at the "B word" being used. Anything else passed him by. I assumed that the ride a unicorn was sexual but I'm old and not cool or down with the young ones.

Pure morning. What does it mean? And why would a girl (well, anyone, but especially a teen girl) want the word Bitch on their T shirt.

Bambambini Sun 10-May-15 21:04:11

Puremorning - that's probably it. I wouldn't let my 13 yr old wear it and the other boy looked about the same age.

MerryMarigold Sun 10-May-15 21:04:31

I don't think my 9yo knows the 'B word'. They all know the 'F word' (even my 6yo) and I had to tell him not to say 'What the hell' as I personally hate it.

My niece also has the t-shirt shown above but she's 18. On a 9 yo I would wonder tbh.

Think it's missing some grammar. Think it should be "Bitch [about me], please. I ride a unicorn."

A bit like "bitch about me because I drive a ferrari", but more, confusing?

It's grim. What parent lets their young teen wear that in public? What older person would think that was appropriate to wear in public? I don't really care what it means - the fact that it has to be explained means it's not funny or clever.

CatOfTheWoods Sun 10-May-15 21:09:42

Or is is please as in "puh-^lease^"

Like it's saying Oh FGS bitch. I'm so much cooler than you.


Zippidydoodah Sun 10-May-15 21:10:09

I guess it's like saying "I'm better than you, because I ride a unicorn, BITCH!" (With the "bitch" a la Jesse Pinkman! grin)

Bitch is a bit much on a child, but the unicorn doesn't mean anything dodgy.

Just another thing that's currently in fashion on FB- bit like zombies.

todayisayesterdaystomorrow Sun 10-May-15 21:11:34

Another for don't get it.
If my teenagers aquired clothes with "bitch" written on, it would get lost in the wash.

Bambambini Sun 10-May-15 21:11:51

I didn't see it all clearly. I translated it as meaning "Bitch! ride my unicorn (dick)."

RebeccaCloud9 Sun 10-May-15 21:12:09

Yeah, lemony is right. Like 'oh please, you can't bring me down because I ride a unicorn so I am awesome'.
