    Default What is it with teen boys/ young men wearing porn T-shirts?

    Has anyone else noticed a lot of this? I have been seeing it a lot lately and I find it really sad. As if young girls and women need more of a reason not to feel good about themselves

    If my son came home with one of these it would be going in the bin along with a talk about respect.

    Examples:

    Revolting. Hate it. Offends my retinas.
    I started a post like this TWO years ago about my husbands t-shirts... He was going to wear one (not quite as bad) to DS's prep reading.... : /
    He hasn't worn it since.
    Wear them in a club or whatever ifyou must but can't stand the thought of KIDS seeing that image down the street.

    My brother wears some, although pretty tame. I must say I am so desensitized I don't really notice any more. I showed one to DP once and he said he wouldn't be caught dead in one, he doesn't want to come across as a pervert.

    Guess there's no inner bogan there.

    My brother wears a few of them, but thankfully he seems to have almost completely stopped wearing them.
    I think some are ok, but most are feral

    I find it even more interesting when the wearer is female.
    I have seen some interesting words and images on the t-shirts of young girls and women.
    More recently, I went to a housewarming where I was surprised to discover that that the rather raunchy framed images belonged to the female.
    It would seem that some young women equate these images and words with sexual liberation and wear/display them proudly.

    I think it goes nicely with the 'Sexy', Playboy and 'Hot **tch' shirts that young girls and women proudly wear

    I dont like seeing them on young boys (as in late primary/high school age) but have nothing against young MEN wearing them (providing the image is not of a violent nature). I would wear a lot of them if DH had them (I'm too lazy to buy them for myself lol).

    But primary aged kids and younger see these men wearing them. It's not just about who is wearing them it's about the effect it has on everyone seeing this.
