I bought this shirt a couple of weeks ago, and it finally arrived yesterday:
A bartender at my club was wearing it, and I instantly fell in love with the design, the sentence structure, the many meanings. It feels provocative and powerful to me, disrupting ideas of patriarchy and slut-shaming in subtle and shifty ways. Or maybe I’m reading too much into it.
Does it refer to the service industry? The young and underemployed? Strippers? Who are the losers?
How do I feel identifying as a “beautiful loser”?
How would this shirt be different without the word “beautiful”: Support your local losers ? Why does being beautiful matter in also being a loser? I have some ideas… Do you?
If you want one, search for Bandit Brand on Etsy and email the owner. She made one for me when I messaged her saying I desperately wanted one!! 🙂
