URBAN OUTFITTERS’ “CLASSIC ROCK BOYFRIEND TEE” IS AN INSULT TO GIRLS, METAL, IRON MAIDEN, EVERYTHING

classic rock boyfriend teeSo many things wrong with this. SO many. Is this worse than the time Drew Barrymore wore an Iron Maiden shirt? Way worse.

But I’m not gonna rant and rave because The Deciblog‘s Jeanne Fury has already done a mighty fine job of that. Sample:

Tagging band t-shirts with the “boyfriend” label is doubly offensive. The slightest notion that a girl can’t have her own Iron Maiden t-shirt is ridiculous. It’s 2010. Chicks listen to metal. Like, actually listen to metal. Not because their boyfriends or brothers are into it, but because they love metal. Seriously, how long is this ignorant and annoying misconception gonna go on? Looping back to the original argument, clothes—band t-shirts especially—have no gender. Unless this Maiden shirt comes equipped with a penis and testicles, it’s just a fucking t-shirt.

If my girlfriend steals my Iron Maiden shirt and wears it I’d classify that as a “boyfriend shirt.” Boyfriends do not come prepackaged at Urban Outfitters. Neither does metal cred. I dare the anorexic bitch at right to name ONE Iron Maiden song. Why if I ever see anyone wearing this shirt Ima… Enough… gotta stop ranting…
