Please, young-woman-who-will-marry-my-son, don’t buy this shirt. Please, don’t believe this shirt. Don’t even snicker at this shirt.


Believe, instead, that you are a young woman of destiny, loved by your creator and full of promise. Your life is meant to be one of purpose and courage and love and faith. Don’t let the world’s relentless bombardment of beauty-cheapening messages dumb you down.

Grow up, daughter-to-be, into the wonderful, courageous, clever, faithful, loving woman who you are meant to be. Know, believe, that your story is much more interesting than the one society will try to write for you. Resist culture. Live YOUR life.

(Apparently, the shirt has now been taken off the shelves. The message, sadly, will undoubtedly linger.)
