So I’m not a T-Shirt Person. At all. Hell, I can make a T-shirt so I rarely pay them any mind in world at all, except for maybe my PRIM WHORE t-shirt which seems all too fitting if you know me. But when someone whose work you know is GOOD make s T-shirts you know that there is going to be something a little different, that sets them apart and makes the more interesting.
How about a badass graphic?
Schrottvogel, Cajsa’s dear friend, dropped some items on me to check out and for the first time in quite a while I got as excited about the T-Shirts as I did by anything else in the folder.
This one says, Make Whores not War – which I am exactly post-feminist enough to dig mightily.
Vogel also makes swimwear and surfer gear, which you will be seeing more of from me as now I have to go surfing cuz I have these badass rashguards.
I can’t believe I’m digging someone’s Tee’s this much, but his are really fun.

As a female, I think this shirt is offensive and degrading to women.
Just my opinion.
Nothing degrades us that we don’t allow to degrade us.
Well, I know I wore a swimsuit that offended Gidge on this blog. I struggle with the concept of post-feminism myself. Post-feminism would be a lot easier to accept if we were post-sexist.
However, I do like the concept of reclaiming the words used to marginalize and stigmatize women. Maybe not all of them, I can’t see myself using the c-word any time soon.
I use the C Word for grins as it suits me.
And, I wasn’t offended by the swimsuit.
I was offended by Chez Guevarra. 🙂
Funny – they’re both Vogel.
Looks like he challenges us in many ways……
I dig that. Even if I don’t like Chez Guevarra.
Post feminism really just means I can be a bdsm slave or a barbie doll or a corporate exec – that none of these things mean I’m less of a feminist or outside of my rights as a female.
It does away with those concepts that “we have to be like men” (career minded,serious,lessplayful) to be equal.
Screw that. Why on earth would I ever want to be like a man?
I like this kind of way you talk about it. It shows me that the effect i tried to cause did happen. It should provoke and spotlight on the person that wear it. Its the same with the CHE-clothes. Its degrading a so called “IDOL” to a trademark. I could place the pope or Einstein on the clothes but CHE is the most trademarked IDOL i know.
By the way. The shirts are set in the shops Cajsa. 🙂
