Misogyny marketed to tweens at local Westfield shopping mall

Our pal Lindsey came upon this heinous thing at a kiosk in the vicinity of Jamba Juice and Sanrio at Westfield San Francisco Centre, our local giant shopping mall.

“[M]isogyny marketed to tweens,” she says in a blog post, “pretttty cooooool!” We assume she was being sarcastic, but asked for followup remarks, she cuts them some slack: “[T]hey also sell YOLO shirts though…”

I like when a babe makes me a sandwich as much as the next guy, but ‘cmon.

    Interesting that you assumed the shirts were for boys… :)

      I actually realized that after the fact as well. it’s technically ambiguous, but that phrase is commonly joked about as an asshole thing to say, and i’m not too confident in the ability of the tween market to discern between technical semantics & a misyogynist precedent. but then i realized that i LOVE when the babes at st francis bring me my sandwich, so maybe i should buy the tee anyway.

    This is a lot more ambiguously misogynist than the frank woman-hating going on a few posts down on this very blog. (See “Pants Rainbow.”)

    As they say on 4chan, “You can’t force a meme.”

    My sister-in-law would totally wear that shirt.

    My girl has said to me before ” cool story babe, now get me a beer”.

    Would it be any worse to see a sign that says this?:

    “Cool story, dude.”

    “Now, go fix my flat.”

    Some people are just too fucking pc.

      Yes, because men don’t make less than men and just barely got the right to hold jobs and fuck who they want 40 years ago.

      Good luck getting laid in this town, BTW.

    I teach high school (public) here in the city, and these shirts were pretty popular last school year….with the girls. I don’t think this is an issue of misogyny marketed to tweens, rather an issue of being too old to “get it”.
