It’s got the universal man/woman icons on it, only the woman is bigger and it says “Team Player” underneath, the implication being that the guy wearing the shirt will “take one for the team” and chat up the fat friend so his bros can hit on the hot chick at the bar.
WTF! There are plenty of men for whom I am the one they WANT to hit on, the the bullet they take so their friend can get the hot girl. I *am* the hot girl! Stop opressing me with your douchebag t-shirts!
Intrigued by the tag “fat girl” on the shirt itself, I clicked it to see what other shirts were being offered. The pleasant surprise is that they were more positive than negative, with slogans like “Fat Girl Pride!” and “Everyone Loves A Fat Girl” outweighing (no pun intended) shirts like the misogynistic crap pictured here.
Still, check out this misogynistic crap. The whole discussion of “entering” is just gross in and of itself, and once again it’s both objectifying women and reinforcing the notion that certain women are societally “acceptable” to have sex with, and others are not.
Still, there’s always the amusing T-shirt reading, “Help, this FAT girl ate me!” Which would only make sense if written by a fat girl who wants to poke fun at the “skinny girl trying to get out” trope.
