I read a couple of years ago about a shirt for tween girls that says "I start rumors".

that's simply just not true. I dislike clothing that lies to me, even worse that it has a misogynistic agenda

Its defiantly not something I would buy my DD, but freedom of speech and all...My hope is that I will raise my DD to think that this type of shirt is stupid. Fingers crossed.

I feel the same about this shirt. I saw a pink t-shirt for a girl that said Too Pretty For Math, or something like that. It would have fit a 7 or 8 year old girl. Our society is shit.

At that age, I had more interest in boys than books. Not by much, but boys would have edged it out. It's just a shirt, not a statement of fact. I really didn't think the person next to me was stupid when I wore my "I'm With Stupid" shirt, either.

So true. If, only books could carry stacks of other books.....

Quoting Clairwil:

1.  Books respect headaches, and wait patiently on the shelf for you to be in the mood

2.  Books are actually good at squashing nasty insects

3.  Books contain more than one idea

4.  A book doesn't complain when you pay attention to a different book

5.  Nobody calls you a book slut for collecting and comparing books

6.  Books educate you and so help you get rich, not dependent

7.  A good book will be your friend your entire life, no breakups

8.  Amazon.com doesn't review boys to let you decide before trying if one is to your taste

9. Books are witty, no matter how you are dressed or looking at that moment

10. Books don't judge you by your cover
