    Not at all. This whole article is worth reading, if you'd like to take the time. Sure, they'd fit on a woman's body, but they wouldn't look nice or flattering. They're not at all unisex in that sense.

      From your link: "Text or images across the chest area of a shirt draw attention to that area. Many women are uncomfortable having attention drawn to their breasts in this manner."

      Is this a joke?

        Please keep on explaining how women should feel.

          That's not entirely fair. Should Threadless not have t-shirts for women because they all have graphics on the front? I think imagery on shirts has enough nuance that saying it is inherently sexualizing is as much speaking for women as you are claiming he is.

          One can both agree that unisex t-shirts aren't good enough while still calling out taking the discussion to an absurd extreme. You don't have to agree with that call out, but just saying NO is hardly useful here.

      Genuinely curious - if I'm a really fat dude can I complain they don't accomodate me too?

      And no - I'm not saying super fat dudes are the same as women. But simply asking that if I don't feel I'm being "represented" by t-shirts then do I have the write to get all pissy?

        Considering super fat dudes makes up 1/3 of the US population, you absolutely have the right to get pissy. However, unfortunately for you and all the other super fat dudes, being fat in tech isn't hot right now.

      Nice or flattering for whom, exactly? Why are women's t-shirts meant to objectify us?
