Are these T-shirts offensive?

By Han Yushi

RUDE and offensive T-shirts are making their way onto people's backs and onto our streets.

You can now easily find them in shops along Orchard Road and Bugis Street.

Many of them carry sexual messages, some even print the F-word explicitly.

''The thing is, people don't care. They don't really bother about the meaning of it. As long as they feel it looks good, it's funny, it's OK, they'll wear it,'' said sales assistant Jun Sim, who works at street store X-craft in Tampines Mall.

Even with the trend becoming more socially accepted, some Singaporeans think that such T-shirts are sending the wrong messages.

''Things like these should definitely not be displayed,'' said STOMPer Sanjay.
