If I like a shirt, I'll wear it. It's not my problem that you might get offended over it.

It's the same poster who said beer at a wedding was "beyond tacky."

Meanwhile I'm the crackpot because of my views on bread and butter.

Yes, I've noticed a lot of things this poster has said in the past... have even had some fairly nasty stuff directed at me.



Oh oh are you the one that said if someone butters an entire piece of bread it looks like they are making a sandwich???

Sorry, but even if someone hadn't seen the movie, I think a reasonable reaction is, "Huh. Wonder what that means."

My husband actually owns the thinkgeek version of the shirt and gets positive reactions to it every time he wears it (which is often.) Never once has anyone mentioned anything negative about it.

Yep, that was me! It is a huge pet peeve of mine! My husband makes me crazy with his open faced butter sandwiches.

But I don't care what tee shirts anyone wears. First Amendment!

LOL - open faced butter sandwich! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

That doesn't bother me. The pet peeve I was attacked for was appreciating proper grammar. Excuuuuuuuuse me!

So anyone should be able to wear T-shirts with cuss words to Disney World? What if someone wears a shirt promoting the KKK? No one's allowed to be offended? I'm sure there are plenty of offensive shirts out there. I'd find some and link to them, but don't want to get points. Simply google "offensive T-shirts" and tell me if you're ok with people wearing those to WDW.

I agree you have the right to wear what you want in public. Others have the right to be offended by what you wear. Businesses have the right to deny you service based on what you wear/don't wear.

One of my favorite stories on NPR recently was a letter-to-the-editor. All Things Considered had done an interview with Mandy Patinkin about the movie to celebrate its 25th anniversary, and he had been talking about how that catchphrase had followed him around for his entire life.

The listener had her own story on the subject: "A few years ago, I was in a class and we were introducing ourselves. One guy stood up rather hesitantly, and then said: 'My name is Pete Montoya.' The whole class of about 30 people, including the instructor, immediately responded, 'You killed my father, prepare to die.' The resigned look on the guy's face indicated that this was not the first time he'd heard this."

The original story: http://www.npr.org/blogs/monkeysee/2...d-of-that-line

And the letter: http://www.npr.org/2012/10/08/162524...-inigo-montoya

Another person's choice of apparel does not affect whether I enjoy Disney or not. I am okay with any idiot wearing any idiotic shirt anywhere. None of my business.

Would I let my own kid? Of course not. But I'm not going to tell other people how to dress.

Guess I'm just not going to get all upset and run and tell some "authority figure" to "protect me" over what someone is wearing. YMMV

I think if someone gets all offended about this stuff they have control issues. You (generic, not specific) do not get to shove your opinions/beliefs/thoughts/prejudices on anyone else. Well, except maybe your children.

It's a shame that society has become so intolerant and paranoid. I thought we were supposed to be getting more well-rounded with all this high-tech globalism.

If a private business wants to control what people wear, that's their prerogative...but they usually lay out specific guidelines. If someone chooses to go to said business and point fingers at someone else and say "I don't like what their wearing, make them take it off". I think that's ridiculous.

Who said anything about going to an "authority figure"? I thought this was about being whether someone could be offended?

Regarding the bolded... couldn't you say the same thing as people who wear certain T-shirts? Gay's can't get upset if someone wears a shirt saying "Gays are going to h-ll!"? I'm not saying anyone can make someone change their clothes, but I think it's unrealistic to say "anything goes, no one should be offended".

I will agree 100%, that's not what I was talking about.

Being offended is a choice.

If one chooses to be offended at something that is their "right". It's not about "should" or "should not". It's about choosing what gets your panties in a bunch. I just happen to think that anyone who takes offense at a t-shirt is a bit on the side.

IMO they have bigger issues than just getting offended at a t-shirt.
