So, wait, you're mad because a company responded to the free speech complaints of its customer base by changing its behavior? I mean, what's so wrong with the company saying "oh wait. These shirts kind of make us look like assholes and a lot of our customers don't respect that and won't by our stuff. Oops." It's hardly gubment censorship: it's free speech and the free market in action. If you don't like it, go shop at Spencer's.

And yes, their alternate t-shirt ideas are lame.

au contraire. I'm not mad at all. I'm just making fun of them because that is what I do.

Actually, I have no problem whatsoever with their process. As you said, its an exercise in free speech. I totally support that. I have no problem with the A&F response. Its free enterprise. I totally support that. The problem I have with them is that I personally feel that their argument is stupid and hypocritical. I think in essence what they want is just as harmful (or unharmful, depending on your frame of reference) as the original shirts, and they're hypocritical for thinking otherwise. But I totally support the freedom to hypocritical speech. I employ it myself quite frequently.

That, and their alternate T-shirt ideas are lame.
