When I think of your everyday message T, I think of nice, positive, thoughtful messages that empower, encourage and perhaps educate. Like “Save the Whales,” “Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute,” or “Kiss Me, I’m Irish.” But then there are the other kind of message Ts. The ones whose message is questionable, ill advised, or just down right offensive. And when those t-shirts are made or marketed to kids, then it’s just double down on the tacky.
These message T-shirts leave the land of being positive one liners and delve into the land of dangerous and disgusting. It’s an issue that has been highlighted lately with the shirts being sold at big box stores like JC Penney. And you really have to wonder about the motive of those behind not just the people who make the shirts but of those who buy them.
