Dads against daughters dating shirt shoot the first one
As the National Fatherhood Project puts it: They also have data suggesting that the absence of a father is tied to greater risk of abuse, neglect, malnutrition, obesity, delinquency and incarceration, aggressive behavior and relationship instability.So just the presence of this father is a powerful, powerful message to the daughter and to those she might date.
See, the really disappointing thing about this one is that it had the potential to normalize male submission/female domination during sex, only to sabotage this more progressive message with the overarching theme that women are objects to be "stolen" from other men in a symbol of alpha male triumph.Setting aside the issue of ableist language, I can only assume that the definition of "crazy" in this context is "jealous, overprotective, and prone to violence," in which case my only response is: I'm embarrassed to admit that the "joke" here was really, really lost on me for a solid hour after I first laid eyes on this piece of work, the word "GAY" in giant capital letters drawing me over like a fish to a lure.For whatever reason, I forgot that "gay for pay" is 1) very much a thing and 2) a thing that straight people find really funny.I was later informed by my partner that this particular "joke" was a favorite among straight boys when he was in middle school, which makes a lot of sense, since I did my best to tune out most of what straight boys said to/around me in middle school.My only question is this: if you find gay people so repugnant, why put this shirt on your body unless you are very seriously advertising your willingness to go boardwalk cruising for a crisp Andrew Jackson? Really don't have much to say about this one except that the Jersey Shore is a genuinely terrifying place and no one should ever go there.I assume the unfortunate young suitor whom the daughter is trying to date without her awful, creepy, overprotective father's interference, but "The First One" is still sort of an ambiguous, dangling modifier here. Why do you have so few ideas of your own that you really, truly think you have anything to add to the art world by slapping some tattoos, piercings, and a Jack Daniels t-shirt on a terrible illustration of Alice that looks like it came from a Sassy Disney Ladies coloring book? I truly can't even think of anything funny to say about this one.
I how you've chosen to utilize your definitely-pricy art school degree? Are you trying to elicit a reaction other than an eyeroll? All I can say is that if you are enticed by the thought of spending money to quite literally wear your hatred of immigrants on your chest, I truly and sincerely hope your precious job is the first one to get snatched in the prophesied Immigrant Invasion.
After all, you like feathers and beads and smoking, and as far as you know, that's all native cultures have to offer you.
Hell, as far as you know, the people whose hypersexualized and caricatured images you're parading around on your shirt aren't even around anymore to be offended.
If you've ever taken a trip to the Jersey Shore, whether your destination was Point Pleasant or Seaside Heights or Wildwood, then you're probably familiar with the area's boardwalks: hubs of beachside cuisine, entertainment, and family fun.
You know the aroma of powdered sugar wafting from stale funnel cake, the cackle of orange-skinned second-generation Italian moms, the muffled catcalls of men trapped behind the game booths, and the slow, eerie spinning of overstuffed Pikachus and poop emojis as they dangle overhead in their Grand Prize prisons.
), and the reduction of a vast multitude of unique cultures to "feathers, beads, and smoking" only serves to further degrade and erase such cultures.
