Recently, some blogger going by PJ got her panties all in a bunch, over a DC t-shirt in Walmart. The gray & purple graphic tee read, "Training to be Batman's wife." I think its cute. Apparently PJ did not. She blogged about the tee in a rage saying:
“The idea that you should settle for being married to or sleeping with someone awesome instead of being the awesome person is insulting...”
“This just happens to be aimed at a young girl. I resent the idea that she should “train” to be so Batman’s wife.”
First: Its just a t-shirt. If you don't like it, don't buy it.
Second: The shirt is not saying you should settle for anything. That's just how you interpreted it.
Who says you can't be "the awesome person" yourself and be an awesome wife? Why should being a wife, be considered as settling?
I'm sick and tired of society trying to beat the idea of marriage out of girls' heads. What is wrong with idea of being married?
These days women are going to college, getting degrees, having careers and being awesome before they even get married. Then they have awesome husbands, and can be awesome wives and mothers. What is wrong with that?
