the most popular t-shirts in greece

Dispatching from the islands of Santorini, Crete, and Rhode.

I had read about these shirts on Feministing and Pandagon before I got to the Greek Isles, so I wasn't completely shocked by their existence. But honestly, they're EVERYWHERE.

So it's bad enough that the men are actually purchasing these shirts, right? But what about the women who are walking happily hand in hand with the men who are sporting them? I expect the guys who are attracted to these shirts to receive the dirty looks I've been giving because I can't help myself. But no. So many many women apparently do not care about the overt misogyny that their boyfriends or husbands are displaying by choosing to buy and wear these shirts.

Too patriotic for all the international tourists, perhaps, but I still like it.
