Would you let your child boy or girl wear a shirt that reads, “I am to cute to play with your ugly ASS kid” you could also take out the word ASS



(Why or why not)





The debate would be: Whats the harm? whats the big deal? in a new born or 19month old or 3year old child wearing a shirt as such? Is there a appropriate age to wear a shirt like this?





Personally…I would not rule out my sons wearing a shirt like this…depending on where we were going.





Edit to add: I changed my mind I would NOT let them wear a shirt like this

Well, if I saw a kid in that shirt, what it would actually say to me is "My parents are rude, crude, morons. They have no class, and are ugly hateful people, please keep your children at a safe distance!!" I've always been good at reading the fine print! LOL, j/k, I can see a little humor in it, but not for my children!

There's a difference between "I love boobs" and "I'm a tits man" IMO.

Definitely not. I don't want my daughter to think that way and I don't want other people to think that I think that's okay. It's just rude really and not funny at all.

I think it is totally unacceptable. Our kids have enough problems with bullies and people acting like they are better than others in school with out a stupid shirt to make it worse. i mean seriously, what kind of message are we sending our kids out there. I would NEVER allow my child to behave with that type of attitude, let alone wear a shirt like that.

I don't think I'd ever buy a shirt that said anything like that simply because I really don't appreciate the attitude in it. First of all, I would never want my child to think that kind of behavior or attitude was humerous, so regardless of age I wouldn't purchase it or let someone else give it as a gift. We need to raise our children to have respect for themselves and others, and that shirt does the exact opposite. Not to mention if I brought my kid to the park to play and we saw another kid with that kind of shirt on, I don't think I'd allow my son to play with them, simply because if that's the kind of attitude the parents find humerous, I don't think I'd be too comfortable with waiting to find out what other kinds of rude or hurtful behaviors they allowed their child to think were acceptable. I think society in general is already a lot more disrespectful than it used to be, and is certainly more disrespectul than it should be, I really don't think it's a good idea to be adding to it.

No. I don't want my children to grow up to be conceited or to think it's okay to judge people based on their outward appearance.
Although I will admit I get a chuckle out of the onesie that says, "I cry when ugly people hold me." But I wouldn't buy it for my child.

No way in hell would I buy this shirt for my kids to wear!!!!!!However,if one of my children(all 3 are teenagers 13-16) received this shirt as a gift I would have to let it be their choice! I would explain my objection to the shirt and express to them how much that could hurt someones feelings and how that it could make people feel that they are a "selfish,hateful,egotistical ASS who obviously needs to put other people down to lift themselves up" type of person and is probably not the type of person you yourself would associate with! This would get the typical teenage response "but it's funny" although they would acttually never wear it.(okay maybe my 16 soon to be 17 year old would)

no i wouldn't. kids are mean enough to each other already, without having them wear a shirt insulting other people's children

[deleted account]

Yay! Let's just encourage MORE rudeness to strangers and then claim their hurt feelings are just acts of PC'ness.

I find shirts like these just plain rude and why is that necessary?

[deleted account]

Holy hell no! Fun or no fun, this kind of thing sends the message to your kid that it's ok to bully/abuse/ be rude to others. As parents we need to remember every little thing we do is mimicked by our kids, sometimes without them understanding the meaning of what they are saying/doing. IMO, this kind of thing is tantamount to saying it's ok for a kid to go around wearing swastikas, or the uniform of the KKK- this shirt may not be as offensive as either of these examples but it's the same principle- letting or even encouraging your kid to minimise other people. Not cool IMO.

I wouldn't buy it for my kids. I can see my husband or his sister or even my one brother buying it though.

Doesn't mean they are going to wear it. I always have veto on any outfit they all wear. Even if they did own it, they'd never wear it.

No I would not buy that shirt, or put that shirt on my kid, with or without the “ass.”

The message says “I’m better than you, and I judge you based on looks, and I’m callous and rude. (as are my parents.)” That’s not at all in line with my family motto from the Bible “Treat others as you would have them treat you.” It’s a big deal because any amount of peace begins in the home and (hopefully) travels from there. Also, it sounds like a good way to get bullied and make enemies.

Bit to rude for me.No,not a bit, WAY to rude.

I would say no.:-)Don't see the point in stuff like that.Sends out a bad message to others and makes parents like me think when seeing a baby etc wearing crap like this"What sort of parents have you got kid"lol.Not cool.:-(

@Erin: I think "douchebaggery" would be the North American equivalent of that. :) And no, it's a horrible shirt. I'm not a fan of being gratuitously mean to others.

[deleted account]

Absolutely not. I'm teaching my kids to be friendly to everyone, so I definitely would never allow a shirt that goes directly against that... especially based on something as superficial as looks.

@Emma -- my son has a breast cancer awareness onesie with a pink ribbon and the saying "I love boobs". Do you consider that offensive?

I love the word boganity hahaha you know what I mean. I might swear and not be that classy but I don't go for deliberately offending people with slogan clothes and using your kids to do it is just wrong and very obnoxious. Even those shirts that are like "I'm a tits man" on little boys. REALLY? Total and utter boganity.

No. It's obnoxious as hell, and a prime example of why I'm not a fan of slogan clothing for kids.

And Emma, I think you just made up a word! 'Boganity'! Lmao

No! Very distasteful. I don't like lewd slogans on shirts especially for kids who don't choose to make that statement. Even I have limits to my boganity.

Ok I laughed, I admit it! Is there really a kid's shirt that says that? That being said I would never allow my kid to wear anything like that other than around the house, and not over the age of 2 in the house, it is quite crude. And I would be appalled to see that on a kid out in public. A saying like that is designed to appeal to adult humour but really has no place on kid's clothes.



Edited to add: I would never actually buy a shirt like that for my kid, or anyone else's.

[deleted account]

My husband bought a shirt for my step daughter when she was a year and a half old it read "I Cry Because Your Ugly" I never put it on her when we had to go out in public, she wore it maybe twice and in the house with us. That being said... I dont like the word "Ass" being in it so no I would not allow him to wear it at this age, if it didnt have the word, I wouldnt mind him wearing it in the house where nobody can see it. But I also wouldnt go out of my way to buy it. I see it as being somewhat humorus (but my sense of humor is the dry, sarcastic kind) but I understand most people would find it offensive, and I also dont go out of my way to offend anybody.

No, I wouldn't buy it for my kids. I was looking at some funny onesies for my grandson before he was born, and some crossed the line from funny to rude or crude even.
