I’m very conflicted about these shirts from Kinksterwear.
On the one hand, I know that BDSM is consensual and all that stuff. And I’ve expressed the sentiments displayed on these shirts to partners before. However, the idea of wearing them on a t-shirt, unless it’s at some sort of kink event, makes me uncomfortable. If you saw someone walking down the street in one of these shirts, you’d have no context for the phrase on the shirt. And, even as a kinkster, conjure images of abuse much more readily than they do BDSM.
“Don’t worry, it’s supposed to hurt,” is kind of triggering for me as a rape victim. And “I hit girls/boys” just seems like something you really wouldn’t want to advertise, could (and most likely will be) totally be taken the wrong way, and just makes me uncomfortable. However, like I said above, I could see possibly wearing them to some sort of kink function, where you would be around likeminded people that would get the joke.
What do you guys think?
