Ha! "More Glitter Less Twitter" is wicked. Now get a Hanes tee and a Sharpie and DIY!

Was Helen wearing that wretched Dior tee...? If she was, I'd dismiss her with the same contempt I'd dismiss anyone else wearing it: It's really the context of wearing an expensive designer slogan tee that's a farce to the cause, and spits in the face of such a statement. (Unless Dior was giving these tees out for free.)

^ No, she wasn't wearing the T ... go take a look at her thread & find out, it's well worth a visit

I'm not sure that a high price invalidates a message. This Ashish stuff isn't cheap, but the messages are sincere and real.

my first and continued reaction to the pussy power bag is to question the choice to put a GIANT buckle in the middle which all but obscures the message...

i mean...
really>?

*cowardly a**hole...
just in it for the clicks...

i'm all for DIY-
but loads of people aren't, i guess and selling t shirts is a quick and easy way to make money for a campaign or cause so i guess that's cool...
people love t-shirts...
personally, i don't wear many t shirts (except to sleep in)...

i'm sort of shocked that there isn't more stuff like this on the runways...
but i think people have figured out other ways to express their opinions and their outrage...
*like calling congress*
or having fundraisers or using social media to speak out...

i kind of agree that it's a bit incongruous and flippant to wear a shirt like this...
but i think it's good to see it on the runway, cause that will get media coverage...as will the message...

* i saw a big giant guy with red hair and a beard wearing a shirt that said "we should all be feminists" and i CANNOT tell you how freaking happy that made me...
i asked him if i could take a pic!...

story:
i have been working with a graphic designer who i think does really fun, pop kind of work...
and she keeps designing t shirt graphics...
and i'm like- why not just DIY? and- don't you think there are enough t shirts out there already?

and she's like- i can't , my writing is bad...
...
she won't even make a sign by hand...
she would rather do it on the computer and print it out...

go figure...
so, i've loosened up my opinion on that a bit...
but i do find that anything DIY is more impactful...
you don't get your pic in the paper carrying a printed sign or wearing a logo t shirt...

on the other hand, if you are famous and getting your pic taken anyway, it's easy to just grab a t and throw it on...
that seems like a good way to get a message to your followers about what you believe in...
