Yet another reason why feminism isn't irrelevant

The Bluenotes clothing store chain is selling guys' t-shirts that read "No means have another drink." A classy endorsement of date rape for the low price of $15.50. More on that here. Even better, use the chain's convenient feedback button at the bottom of their website to remind them that promoting sexual assault in order to make money is offensive.

Oh Christ- why go after BlueNotes when you could go to source, like Maxim, MTV or any number of cultural influences who have been spouting this kind of misogyny for decades?

Handy, though, that they have a feedback button.

Why? Because I believe companies, like individuals, should be held accountable for their own choices. "The media made me do it" isn't much of a defense once you throw free will and basic intelligence into the mix.
