    I agree. I too feel very uncomfortable with children being exposed to these images and words.
    But your original post made specific reference to boys and men. I think it's important to acknowledge that women also carry these words and images on their clothing. It's not a male issue - it's a cultural and generational issue.

    To me it's no different to my daughters seeing me in a mini skirt or short shorts and strapless top. I just explain to them that mummy is a grown up, and that it's not nice for little girls to wear these sorts of clothes. If I had a son I would explain to him that they aren't suitable shirts for young boys and once he is older he can wear them all he wants. I guess it's about educating them. That's just me though and I do understand why people don't like them.
