    Re: Offensive Clothing...

    I don't have any problem at all with Disneyland going down the slippery slope to censorship. On this thread, and on the other one on naughty ride photos, it all boils down to having standards. DL has every right to run a G-rated park, and to insist on guest behavior and attire that follows that standard.

    I'd love for the word on the street to be that DL doesn't put up with any nonsense, and to have a reputation for simply kicking guests out of the park and in some cases revoking AP's when guests don't follow the clear standards of behavior.

    Some people will whine about how harsh and non-tolerant this kind of policy is. The vast majority will reward Disney with their business, and be thankful for a small oasis of good taste in a country where we've become de-sensitized to rude and selfish behavior.

        I would have to agree Disney is a family oriented place and those shirts were in poor taste. Sometimes its not even what people wear but their language. Its one thing if they are quiet about it but when they are shouting it makes me mad. At least with a shirt you can choose not to look at it. I know Disney would get a a lot of flak for banning what people wore in the park but it would be no different from a club banning you form wearing a hat, white shoes, or shirts with company names. Disneyland is private property they can make the rules that people would have to follow.

        On top of that where are some of these teenagers parents at? Okay I'm sounding old now.

        I was just thinking last night leaving DL that I wonder how people were back when the park opened. I couldn't believe how inconsiderate people in the park can be.

          I saw some big gay guy have a gay porn website on his t-shirt at WDW. What if a 12 year old remembered that website and typed it in... :O. Y'know?

            Re: Offensive Clothing...

            From my understanding, there is a policy where if a castmember/security sees your clothing and deems it inappropriate, and you don't change you'll have to leave the park. I have a few friends who wear a certain fashion stye (completely modest, but park employees seem to have problems with it in the past. most likely because it can seem a little costumey at times, depending on what you're wearing.) and have had to talk to CMs before.

            So because of that I'd say that either
            a.)CMs probably don't notice this trend and/or are too busy with a current task at hand to do something. I mean, I can't imagine how many people they gotta deal with in a day. so if you think it's too offensive for kids to see, why not report it yourself to somebody?

            b.)or CMs might not care. Especially the teens, yah know. They're not in the parental mindset, and they are probably more focused on their job.

                Is this how you do the spoiler tag?
                Disneyland's closed for all of 2011. See you in 2012. Snow White is now a water ride, Matterhorn has a fullsize basketball court where the Clippers have relocated to, and King Arthur's Carousel is suspended 250ft. in the air.
                Enjoy it while it lasts! LOL!

                  I don't find any of that stuff personally offensive, but I do wish people would be a little more appropriate, especially at Disneyland. Like, I might wear a "That's what she said" shirt on a normal day. (prompted by my love of the TV show "The Office" and Michael Scott's immaturity) but I'd think twice before wearing it at Disneyland.

                    I believe images will be more of an impact on kids rather then words but even the words can be disrespectful to families all together. I myself would not like to see a shirt that says.."must be this tall to ride" it's rude. People just need to have respect for other people and themselves. You wouldn't go to a family dinner wearing those clothes dont go to a family place wearing them!!!!

                      Re: Offensive Clothing...

                      I know some of what I posted earlier may make it sound like I am advocating people wearing stuff that others deem offensive but in reality I am not.

                      I see the points that others are making about the family image and when you really look at it this way... Disneyland is a private business and if they want to enforce rules as a business regarding dress code they definitely should and have every right to. Being a private business, if they really wanted to they could enforce strictly a dress code like a nightclub, restaurant, or anything else like that does. But again, I will not lie that as a person I am one of the most uncensored people out there and as far as personal values are concerned I totally do not believe in censorship of any sort. Although not many others will agree with me on that I and as a result if people want things to be kept in a certain image I will tone things down for them or comply with whatever dress codes they want. It doesnt stop my personal values against censorship but when we are talking about things in the scope of Disney being a private business, all bets are off as we are walking into someone elses backyard where they can set and determine the rules in which I will have my enjoyment. Keeping that in mind, if Disney wants to have a dress code for their parks and wants to follow through with it I will gladly oblige as whatever I wear on my Disney trips is usually just typical solid colors and fashionable pants like my denim and other stuff anyways.

                      I think the main concern on this is whether or not Disney is following through on their dress code for the parks or whether or not they want to go as far as deeming those shirts as inappropriate... I know with most theme parks and water parks its typically an unwritten rule [despite it being written on park signage and maps where guests can easily view it] that shirts deemed as offensive should not be worn. The reason most theme parks will have this rule is because as guests visit their place of business, people from all walks of life and lifestyles will be present at the park.

                      This is one reason that when I go to Wet N Wild here in Phoenix I try to wear a shirt with my swimsuit as I am a little hairy and not everyone is going to want to see a bit of my belly covered with a lot of dark chest and body hair or if I ever had Tattoos I would assume that everyone would not want to see a tattoo on my upper arm either and I plan accordingly. Or another example is when I am at Disneyland I stick with solid colors mostly and classic styles because not everyone is going to like my wilder styles of bright and loud t-shirts or dramatic pants that I would wear to go out and party. There is really a time and place for everything when it comes to style and what to wear and if Disney wants to enforce their dress code strictly then I am sure whomever had those shirts on probably either A) went through the gate without it and put it on when they got in, or B) Wasnt told to wear it inside out, cover it up, or find a new shirt [and I know people at the main gates have told people to do this before as I saw them say it to people entering in front of us]

                      But again, many people make some excellent points on the posts... And while I may not agree in the whole censorship aspect of things, I do have respect for everyone elses opinions and can respect where everyone else is coming from... Without getting into it being Gay Days and a red shirt, I will say this.

                      On the official Gay Days site they do have a disclaimer that as the park has a family atmosphere and there will be guests from all walks of life present at the park, they ask that guests attending Gay Days take discretion in the logos, wording, and other attire worn into the park when choosing a red shirt. Obviously I dont think whomever was mentioned in the first post paid attention to the website for the event if they happened to be attending the parks for that reason but they do make mention on their site to keep your shirt within something that would be appropriate in a family atmosphere. And its always been that way every year since I have always wanted to go out to the parks for Gay Days but never got the chance.
                      Add me... I dont bite LOL!

                        I don't quite understand your post. How do you know this males sexual orientation? If he was indeed homosexual, does his sexuality support your claim that his shirt was inappropriate?

                          Walt would be turning in his grave, those kind of messages on clothing should be outlawed from the Parks.

                            You seem like a very thoughtful and intelligent guy. Why cover up your body? This doesn't sound like you are doing it for others...it sounds like you are doing it out of embarassment or shame and that's not good. Let it show and be proud! Some people like hairy fellas!

                            And on the tattoo note...I have a naughty tattoo on my arm. So when I am in a place that it may not be appropriate, I draw a little bikini on the naked lady with a Sharpie. Nobody notices any nipple and I don't have to roast in a long sleeve top! Everyone wins!

                                That's nothing. A friend of mine once wore a shirt to WDW that said (fully spelled out):

                                  I saw innapropriate shirts yesterday that weren't red, I think they were jut slacking off and not telling people when they're shirts had bad things. I've seen other shirts with innapropriate things, too, on other days

                                    I never read peoples shirts. I rarely notice what people wear. It has to be pretty bad for me to take notice of it. I doubt any of the mentioned shirts would have caught my attention.

                                      It doesn't matter if he was gay, straight, black, white, purple, or green- no one should advertise a porn website at Disneyland. It's sad that people have no shame and no respect for themselves.

                                          It's not just words on s shirt, it's also VERY tight and low cut shirts and those teeny tiny shorts, in same cases with but cheeks hanging out. I've seen young girls dressed in shorts like that. Inappropriate almost everywhere, esp. in a family park.

                                          I honestly don't know if I could report someone wearing a shirt wit an inappropriate message... it just seems a little like tattling to your mom. Obviously a person who would wear an F the F You Fer shirt or or their boobs hanging out just wants attention, and that's jsut giving them some. Like was mentioned, CMs decide if it's appropriate.
