If you wear a T shirt that says the following: “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a ….” what does it say about you? It says that you are a laid back, cool sort of person who is not too troubled by the everyday hurly burly of life. What it also says about you is that you like reading, though this will be obvious only to those who are themselves fond of reading. Since this is a very famous line from the classic novel Gone with the Wind (a little altered for modern usage; the original reads “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn”) spoken by the protagonist Rhett Butler in the end of the novel, it would immediately ring a bell.
Graphic tees these days are not merely meant to make a fashion statement, the t shirt design slogan is meant to display your attitude. Sample this one: “I don’t need a weapon. I AM one!” how cool and tough does that make you. Now this one would make a risque sort of statement when sported by a woman! You can also go for i just want all the dogs shirt.
Sometimes teens or adolescents who are going through a particularly rebellious phase of their lives can resort to offensive one-liner graphic tees to make a statement and perhaps underline it. For instance this really rude one “You remind me of a dumb person I know” or this one “You stop and smell the roses. I’M BUSY” would go down really well with an angst ridden teen who was looking to make a non-conformist statement.
