Sometimes I wonder if the people behind T-Shirt Hell are trying to send a message to the world about various topics. Yes, their t-shirts offend a lot of people around the world and from all walks of life. But should they really be offended?
Let’s analyze these two recent shirts.
Of course this is a parody on the Support our Troops idea. You know, the t-shirts mostly worn by Americans when their children or relatives are fighting a war overseas, which seems to be most of the time. This t-shirt could just be a joke but it could also be a serious commentary. While some American people are travelling around the world fighting for peace and freedom (ideally) others are sitting at home eating pizza while enjoying sports on the TV. And all the while their own freedoms are being eroded but they don’t bother to do anything about it.
My first thought when I saw this t-shirt was: that’s not cool. If it were He Beats Me it would certainly cause outrage. But the fact of the matter is that men are also the victims of domestic violence and I’m sure that the actual rate is higher than the reported rate too. T-Shirts like this could bring light on the dark matter it concerns.
Of course it could just be a dirty t-shirt.
