Im sure target will pull it because no corporation has stood up to any form of political correctness as of yet. My thought is that the market will dictate what women want to buy, if no one likes the shirt it will make them no money. My thought is they will sell them, I just don't understand all these easily offendable people. I don't understand at all why anyone listens to them. Let them be offended

Yeah I don't get it either.

If it said something actually offensive I could see it. But it's clearly a shirt designed for women...Target is not dumb..they do their research to know what is likely to sell before they stock it in their stores.

I found many examples on Pinterest with women wearing shirts that took it further
as I mentioned.
Trophy WIFE for example or Future Trophy wife. The women wearing them are smiling while wearing them too.

There are women out that think this type of thing is "cute" ...should we ban people from buying or selling these shirts?
I see a lot of people wearing dumb shirts ...but we are also supposed to have freedom of speech too..right?

It would be nice if once in a while corporations stood up to crazy political correctness instead of 'apologizing' for offending people.

It seems like nowadays there is some outrage or phoney outrage and then the company just back peddles instantly.

Is this really a big deal? ... Obviously it's a play on the "IN N OUT" sign.

Anyways they are getting what they want...more media attention!

They are experts at getting the media to cover them.
