Vox Day has a new shirt:
In case you weren’t sure if Vox wasn’t talking about your teenage daughter’s interactions with boys, note how he frames this shirt:
Never mind that every man with an attractive wife is well aware of the death stare she reserves for idiots who don’t respect her wedding ring or recognize her initial signal to back the fuck off.
Here are three questions to illustrate why I have no problem with this shirt but do have a problem with the other shirt:
- What is the main difference between your unmarried, teenage daughter and your wife? Why would you be interested in signaling the unavailability of one but not the other?
- What do you think the biggest difference is between men with the balls to approach a married woman and your teenage daughter’s BadBoy McBikerDrummer/Actual Good Guy Suitor?
- What is the biggest difference between a teenage girl talking about her daddy and a grown woman talking about her husband?
Understand the answer to those three questions and you might get why the other shirt seems awkwardly cartoonish and this shirt seems kind of cool.
Because going by Vox’s commentary he either 1) Doesn’t understand the criticism at all, or 2) Is getting actual weirdos criticizing it.
I dunno. I’m just not on the same page here.
