Well Target has gifted us with another ‘well damn’ moment.
Word on the street is, Target’s promoting a rape culture by selling shirts with the word trophy on the front. I can’t say that I’m pissed off to the highest level of pisstivity over the company’s reflection of women. Our society is so wide open for accepting so many things; I can almost get why they thought these shirts would be a good idea, but really Target??? We’re still on the road to recovery from the Bill Cosby mayhem and you come with this? Plus, I think everyone can agree that we have more than our fair share of insecure, low esteem, “I’m ratchet because my momma was” women in the world, there’s no need to add to their current situation.
I’m curious to know what happens if we flip the situation. What would the reactions be if a sassy 65 year old was wearing this shirt or a woman who’s happily married and wouldn’t trade her man in for all the tea in China??? Would it still be degrading or would that be considered cute? Perhaps these types of shirts are more appropriate for certain ages or for signature shops with frequent adult purchases versus a family-friendly store environment. What do you think?
