Spencer's Gifts performs a public service...

...by providing shirts with such horrible, sexist messages, that you instantly know to avoid the people wearing them.

Have a link.

I don't know about anywhere else, but here in Portland Spencer's is seen as the epitome of douchebag merchandise. I've been in their stores a few times, and I've never seen any damn thing of redeeming value.
Oh, you take the high road, and I'll take the low road...

Ah, these t-shirts.

Worn by dumbass men and male teenagers who inherently subscribe to the belief that men are somehow meant to be controlling of women.

These simpletons have such a base sense of humor that all you have to do is say the words "kitchen" and "bitch" and they devolve into moronic chuckles that make Beavis and Butthead look like mature, well-adjusted individuals.

These sort of men can become the people who justify rape because a woman doesn't follow their orders.  They think it's their god-given right to put women in their place.

Ironically, these guys will probably make homosexual jokes, in a vain attempt to hide their own attraction, no matter how minute, to the same gender.  Expect them to fly off the handle if another man so much as looks at them funny in all seriousness.

Do not even weep for these men.  It is not an unfortunate twist of fate that makes them this way.  They shall reap the just fruits of their labor.

By the way, this soapbox is higher than I thought.  Can anyone help me down?

I've seen the warming the dick thing on one of those e-card things. Though it was "SHe slapped me when I said I was "heating up her dinner" which was a bit more funny. What the fuck is wrong with this store?

It's funny. One of my customers walked into the store wearing the "I Have the Dick, I Make the Rules" shirt--which angered a female co-worker of mine. As he walked out I told her I thought the shirt was supposed to read "I Am a Dick".

This doesn't surprise me since Spencer's has had this type of humor for ages. I haven't seen anyone wearing that type of shirt, thankfully, but they're all extremely dickish and serve as a good warning.

I'm a terrible person for being so desensitized that I just look at things like that and laugh.

Not really.

On a personal note, the first shirt (and only the first) is one I actually don't have a problem with because I view it as a reply to the female version. So when I see either shirt I view one as saying "I am Bitch, hear me roar!" and the other as saying "I am Asshole, hear me *FRRRT*."

Though I do think those shirts are idiotic and anyone who wears them is an instant douche, they DO have shirts like that for women too.  The one by me I've seen ladies shirts that read things like "I have the tits so I make the rules" or "Your face makes my pussy dry" and so on.

Not saying I like any of these, but Spencers goes out of their way to offend EVERYBODY.

Same here.

Then again, they also sell these t-shirts, as pointed out by the user sarahpuppylove in the comments section.
