Let’s admit it, anything sexist gets the attention of people. Some women get offended more easily than others. Some men laugh at it, while others agree with how distasteful things are – depending on the specific situation.
In this particular case, DC licensed sexist tees are getting “fans” all riled up because, well, they are supposed to be sexist.
Case in point. This teenager’s tee from Walmart.
I could be thick-headed sometimes, but what’s wrong with being Batman’s wife? One could do worse than the caped crusader, yeah? Then again, there’s the other side to the coin: why would one want to stay up all night and worry if her husband will come home with a few bruises and cracked ribs or if he won’t come back at all. But he’s Batman.
Another DC licensed sexist tee is being sold by Superhero Den, but this time, it features Superman and Wonder Woman.
C’mon guys. Superman waited for decades to get Wonder Woman. Let the guy celebrate!
This tweet is even worse, I think.
