Both these shirts are offensive. The red, because as soon as I saw it it screamed rape (or DV generally). The grey, because of the dehumanizing factor. People have a hard enough time recognizing women as human beings/people.
I am glad enough people pointed out how horrible these shirts are that the company apologized.
See, I think it's funny because it's so offensive. Then again I think The Nigga Song and the Make a Realistic Wish Foundation sketch are funny. It's a dangerous line to skirt though. Played too straight or too long and it just becomes tasteless.
