I was coming out of the library today when a woman around my age or a little older stopped me.

She said my shirt was offensive.

She said I should think about what I'm wearing before I leave the house.

She said I especially shouldn't wear something like this when I'm in a place children frequent.

She said I shouldn't support sensationalised violence because children might get the wrong idea.

She said I should consider setting a better example for younger people.

I asked if she was campaigning for Stupid Bitch of the Year.

My shirt had the name of our local roller derby team on it and nothing else. It's a regular black t-shirt.

Her shirt said "Overworked and Underfucked". It was cut off at the belly.

Good luck with that one, darlin'.

Hypocrisy aside, I want her shirt.

As long as you can pull it off better than she did.

I think I know what her problem with the "under" part was.

You'd be surprised at what I can pull off.

Aren't white-trash fun? :rolleyes: She'd fit in nicely in the southern part of my county.

I must have that shirt. But not cut off at the belly. That would cause blindness.

IRV! Where is your avatar from? I totally remember it but cannot remember where from! I'm thinking something like Sesame Street. Am I correct?

I have no problem with her wearing that shirt.

Depending on the name of the roller derby team on your shirt, I might not have too much of an issue with her commenting on it, though I might say it really is none of her business. (Out of curiosity, what is the name of the team that she so objected to?)

But for her to be wearing THAT shirt and commenting on YOUR shirt?

Have I ever mentioned how much I despise hypocrites and hypocrisy?

I do have one shirt with the word "fuck" on it: a George Carlin shirt with the saying "Simon says go fuck yourself!" on the back. I do NOT wear it any time I will be in The Bar, or if I am going to go somewhere I know young children or families will be. However, I WILL wear it when I am just going out or walking down Duval Street, especially at night time. I am waiting for the day some yahoo tourist jackhole gives me shit for it while they are dragging their kids through the Duval Street madness at midnight. Ohhhh, am I waiting for that evening!

I get snide remarks quite often about how I shouldn't dress so "nice".

I usually just retort back "At least I look nice!".......you want to go out in public in your jammies and your hair the way you woke up with it, fine by me. You don't see me trashing you for it, but don't trash me because it's Friday evening and I dared to wear my nice clothes and wear makeup and do my hair nicely.

The name on the shirt is "Tampa Tantrums", above a picture of tiny roller skates. It's a wonder my sinful flesh doesn't fall off. I almost feel bad; with a little notice, if I'd known she'd be there I could have come up with something MUCH more offensive, I'm sure.

It just happens naturally with me. :angel:

You sure she wasn't just messing with you? :headscratch:

That's the only explanation I can come up with . That, and maybe it was a desperate last ditch effort to get someone to notice, become offended by, and comment on her shirt.

Frankly, I have often thought things like "What the hell were they thinking when they put that on?" and "Does s/he own a mirror?" but I can't muster the mental energy to actually be offended by someone's clothing.

Wait, not "The Vicious Marauders" with a slogan of "We Beat the Hell out of the Competition" and a picture of a roller skate impaling a human skull?

Obviously this woman (a) knew what your shirt was about, (b) had a personal vendetta against roller derby, and (c) thinks that roller derby is far worse a sin than explaining to a child coming out of the library from his reading lessons what "underfucked" means.

Maybe she thought it said Tampon tantrums? :lol:

I thought she was trying to be funny initially too. I laughed. She looked indignant. OH WHAT'S THAT SMELL IS IT IGNORANCE AGAIN.

Funny you mention tampons. That is actually an alternative shirt design. (Box of Tampax, where the name has been changed and the prescription is DERBY!)

I don't think there are any really offensive derby names -- where team or player. Most of them seem to try to be clever instead. (Anita Bopabitch, Anne Tagonise) And it's actually nowhere near as violent as people think . . . at least, not the registered professional leagues.

Man, now I feel lame. I think the most offensive article of clothing I own is a shirt with a little cartoon man pointing at a lip mark on his butt. I must get some clothes with swears so I am prepared for this in the future! Maaaaaan.
