    Re: Insulting red T-Shirts from gay days?

    I personally didn't see any insulting shirts there unless you are of course insulted by shirts promoting Gay Rights and Gay Days.

    If so ... tough.

    Insulting red T-Shirts from gay days?

    I posted this here for subject matter:

    I remembered that some people were wearing some pretty insulting red T-shirts, during gay days. I Also remembered that back when DL was still young, that people who were wearing offensive T-Shirts were usually not allowed in the park. What happened to modesty?

    You're painting with a pretty broad brush there, Magenta Panther.

    Last time I checked, Disneyland was open to pretty much anyone who can pay the $72 to get in. And I was there both days this weekend. I saw no disruptions .... just familes of ALL types enjoying a lovely California weekend. We should all be able to enjoy that.

    I think the most offensive shirt I seen was at World of Disney. It said, "I'm bringing Grumpy back". I mean why bring Grumpy back during these tough times. Why not bring Happy back, maybe even some Sleepy, at least a little Dopey.

    Re: Offensive Clothing...

    I have zero input on whether or not the incidence of offensive shirts is at all correlated to Gay Days. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever even been to the park during that time. But it seems pretty straightforward to me that, regardless of what day of the year it is and regardless of one's own opinions, it's just (not-so-)common decency to avoid wearing clothing that's sexual, vulgar, or disrespectful to a given group of people. It's not really productive to wear that sort of clothing in the parks anyway...when was the last time someone changed their mind on an issue because they saw someone wearing a shirt? Can't say I've ever called anyone out on it, as I actually haven't seen too many cases of this, but especially if I had children with me in the park, I might say something to someone wearing a particularly horrid article of clothing.

    EDIT: I see the thread's been litterboxed. Probably for the best, I suppose.

    Personally, I think those shirts are funny!

    I once saw a woman pushing a baby stroller, with a toddler on her hand, at DL, wearing a shirt that said all over the whole shirt. THAT is offensive to me when I had my small kids with me. Not what you mentioned.

    Most of the time, I just stay away from these topics. I realize that I am not going to change anybody's mind. They do have a right to their opinions, and their lifestyles.

    Considering my age of 62, I have seen a lot of wardrobe changes over the years. I remember when I went to high school. Girls could not wear pants of any kind. Over the years that has definitely changed.

    Recently my grandson changed his wardrobe. He now wears heavy metal t-shirts almost all of the time. He knows that I don't care for heavy metal music., He knows that a few of his shirts would rub me the wrong way, and so he doesn't wear them around me. I didn't censor his wardrobe, he did that all on his own. I do appreciate the fact that he thinks about my feelings in this way.

    It's another one of those issues that isn't all good or bad. Sometimes we have to learn when to pick our battles. Respect works both ways.
    Sounds like your grandson is a good kid.

    The thing is, too few people respect childhood, or the very notion of childhood innocence anymore. You see this especially in TV programming, the object of which seems to be to "educate" kids about certain things before their parents or teachers can. Frankly, I'm beginning to think that the Disney organization doesn't respect childhood innocence either. At the very least, the parks should be a haven from the crassness and crudity of the outside world. That's surely what Walt intended. Shame on the current management of Disney for not protecting the image and purpose of "the happiest place on earth".

    I think it really speaks volumes of any organized group when they openly remind those participating to be respectful of the general public. As others have stated the explicit shirts are not specific to any organized group but a reflection of lowered standards in society as a whole. I wish individuals would have the same amount of respect many organized groups demonstrate. For me the encounter with the Hells Angels really opened my eyes. Here are bikers known for leading a rough life and one of their first thoughts is to "clean up and cover up" for kids!

No matter who is having these events, they should respect that families are still going to be there. Keep it clean and appropriate.

    I do remember seeing pictures of DL in the 50's and 60's. With all the people all dressed nice. Kinda sad that we've gone from that to things like this!

    "NOTE FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE OFFICIAL GAY DAYS T-SHIRT: We encourage your creativity when selecting a shirt (as long as it's red!). Just please keep in mind that Disneyland is open to the general public and there will be people of all ages present. Thanks!"

    They do make mention to keep in mind that people of all ages will be present... I think that speaks for itself that its best to wear a red shirt that does not have anything offensive on it... you do make a good point but its plain and clear on the Gay Days website and the best they could do is put it up on the website as they cant control what people decide to take out of their closet and wear to the event. That falls under Disney and whatever their policies may be regarding shirts like that and obviously it was too offensive or deemed as inappropriate I am sure there is some protocol regarding it.

    Can someone also correct me if I am wrong, but doesnt Bats Day also have a similar disclaimer when it comes to what to wear for their event... I am not sure whether Raver Day does or not but I have heard of some wild outfits coming out of peoples closets and being worn on raver day. Especially a few Kandie Kids I know who have told me of some of the things they have worn to Disneyland on that day.

    Oh and just like that grandson Barnaraann mentioned, I am the same way when it comes to things like that... I pick my battles and know what I should and should not do certain places same with what I wear out to certain places... those offensive worded shirts are more suited for kegger type of parties and parties where you want to make a fashion statement, theme park attire is more basic and less flashy, whereas work attire is a lot more professional and dressed up... its really about respect for everyone... have all the fun you want but try your hardest not to intrude on other peoples fun either!

    This essentially is what I don't see. What you describe is a respect for others, a compassion towards the beliefs of others and a willingness to think beyond one's self interest. If more park goers were like your grandson then maybe we wouldn't see so many offensive shirts!

    Last time I checked, "ghetto" wasn't a bad word. That kid couldn't be reprimanded for that. It's not breaking any rules.

    Um...She's not completely naked, but her booby is showing. But you really have to be staring pretty hard at my arm to figure out just how offensive it is. A quick glance will not suffice.

    That is the other thing too - people who wear shirts with F whatever on them only care about themselves and aren't thinking if it's appropriate to wear them to a family park. Not every place you go to is the appropriate place to make a statement.
