I know that the loot for the great summer solstice celebration is beginning to pile up in the nooks and crannies of my house. Among this loot lies three t-shirts that are MINE. Two of them are the classical, angry t-shirts which broadcast to the world that the wearer is a jerk. One is all rainbow coloured and pretty (seriously, all anyone has to do to keep me quiet is lock me in a room with an infinite book supply and the occasional kaledoscope). I like them.
Anyway, I was considering the politics of wearing your politics on your chest and it seems to me that t-shirts are an excellent indicator of personality. For example when you see a guy with “never trust something that bleeds for a week and doesn’t die” emblazoned on his chest, then you know you should do your best to make him bleed. Personally, I want a t-shirt that says “Never trust a man who wears a sexist t-shirt,” but that might imply I actually care about men. Decisions, decisions.
