10 Bad Message T-Shirt For the Youth of Today: Which Is the Worst?

Future Trophy Wife T-Shirt

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.

Check out these ten bad message T-shirts, which one do you think is the most offensive?


  • Allergic To Algebra 1 of 9
    Allergic To Algebra
    This Forever 21 shirt caused quite a stir for being marketed to the tween/teen aged girls.

  • Boys Are Stupid Throw Rocks at Them 2 of 9
    Boys Are Stupid Throw Rocks at Them
    First there is the statement that boys are stupid, then there is the threat of violence. So this shirt has not one bad message but two.

  • Girls Are Dumb – Pull Their Hair 3 of 9
    Girls Are Dumb - Pull Their Hair
    Another double bad message shirt. First the statement that girls are dumb and then the pulling of the hair? That's not cool.

  • For Free – My Big Brother 4 of 9
    For Free - My Big Brother
    The thought of selling your big brother is bad enough, but this shirt advertises that you can just have him for free.

  • My Dad Can Kick Your Dad’s Ass 5 of 9
    My Dad Can Kick Your Dad's Ass
    Even if it's true, it's something you don't want to advertise.
  • My Best Subjects 6 of 9
    My Best Subjects
  • My Parents Hate Me I Failed My I.Q. Test 7 of 9
    My Parents Hate Me I Failed My I.Q. Test
    Not only do their parents not like them, but the kid is evidently pretty dumb. Really...who would wear this shirt?

  • I’m Too Pretty To Do Homework So My Brother Has to Do it For Me 8 of 9
    I'm Too Pretty To Do Homework So My Brother Has to Do it For Me
    JC Penney for some reason sold this shirt. A shirt that made parents, girls and the general public at large upset.

  • Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels 9 of 9
    Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels
    This quote from Kate Moss was featured on T-shirts in sizes from adult to kids. And kids wearing this shirt? Well, that's just not right.
