    Damnit, I’m buying me one. Maybe two! I’ve worked hard the last couple of weeks and I deserve it.

    But this cracked me up: I went to browse the Feministe logo shirt, and–

    Men’s style T-shirts $11.99
    Women’s style T-shirts $13.99

    Truly patriarchy is everywhere.

    But those are still very affordable prices. I’ll just buy the men’s.

    Ha. I didn’t even realize that. Maybe I’ll email him and see if we can make the prices the same…

    Mmm, I want me an Angry Fembot Army shirt!

    The size thing is especially bizarre since the baby doll shirts look like (since they’re shorter) they involve less cloth per shirt than the mens’. More for less? Weird.

    Womyn’s Studeis, dammit! Conform to the stereotype!

    But I can’t pass up the one with what appears to be about 600 words of Howard Zinn text on it, about midway on the main page.

    Crap. The sizes are not what I would have hoped for.

  6. March 25, 2007 at 8:45 pm

    ilyka, I noticed that too! No escape, even with a feminist t-shirt. I’ll be going for the men’s too.

  7. March 25, 2007 at 8:47 pm

    The women’s shirts are more expensive because they’re stretchier, more expensive material, which makes the wholesale prices higher. Since the wholesale price of the women’s shirt is $2 higher, the marked price is $2 higher. But we may just charge men $2 more to even things out…

    I just got my “So that explains the difference in our pay!” shirt in the mail last week. So far it’s been worn about 3756 times.

    Dude, my birthday is coming up, and I’m putting the Angry Fembot Army T on my list. The expensive girl’s version, even. Very cool.

    Bea Arthur (!), as Amazonian Planet-Ruling Fembot Disguised as a Femputer:

    Why? Why? I came here from a faraway planet. A planet ruled by a chauvinistic Manputer that was really a Manbot. Have you any idea how it feels to be a Fembot living in a Manbot’s Manputer’s world?

  11. March 25, 2007 at 10:57 pm

    Jill, you should charge the men $4 more, to make up for the difference in our paychecks! (Or whatever the accurate amount would be. I’m mathematically-challenged.)

    I may have to get two of the Women’s Studies shirts. One for every day, and one for my Sunday Goin’-to-Meetin’ shirt (or Sunday Joggin’-by-the-Meetin’ House with my dirty dirty woman’s body, whichever).

  12. March 26, 2007 at 12:09 am

    The women’s studies one made me nearly spit water all over the screen.

    Anybody ordered from these people before and know how the baby-doll style shirts fit? I hate regular t-shirts, because they just drop from boobs to hips and make me look pregnant. But if the XL in the baby doll style would be too tight, I guess I’d go with the t-shirt. 36G here, so XL doesn’t always fit, depending on the manufacturer.

    And yeah, if the shirt does fit tight, that’s good because it calls attention to the slogan! But if it’s too tight it’ll be physically uncomfortable, quite apart from the whole self-consciousness issue. Wow, that was some serious TMI.

    Love the Angry Fembot Army shirt! I just ordered one.

    Hmm, just realised the “If I had a hammer…” isn’t a Feministe tshirt. The feministe t-shirts are all good though.
    Time to spend some money in a good cause…

    I have two of their shirts, and I think they fit really well. The babydoll shirts are definitely fitted — I’m about 5’3″, fairly petite (though not skinny) and a B cup, and the small was perfect for me. They’re cut to fit women’s bodies — larger in the chest, sightly tapered at the waist. I don’t know if that’s helpful at all, but I hope so!

    Any chance of getting plus sizes in the women’s t-shirts?

    I hate to think I can’t order anything.

    I’m bigger than both the women’s and the men’s XL and I have to say I’m disappointed that people my size and bigger are excluded.

  18. March 26, 2007 at 10:42 am

    I’ll get in touch with the guy who runs Radical Rags and see what we can do about offering bigger sizes. Right now we’re still in a trial run — if Feministe t-shirts don’t sell well, Radical Rags may not keep us on, so I don’t foresee them adding plus-sized shirts just for Feministe until we prove that we can move product.

    That said, the sizing is for all the Radical Rags t-shirts, not just the Feministe shirts, so it might be worth dropping them a note to say that you’re interested in buying, but hope that they will start offering plus-sized shirts.

  19. zuzu

    Quite the dilemma, since we could move more product if many of our readers (and one of the bloggers) could actually buy sizes that would fit.

  20. March 26, 2007 at 12:43 pm

    I like the shirts, but I’m not going to buy any until they’re in sizes that plus-size women can fit. (Tell Radical Rags THAT.) Jill, that comment about being “fit for women’s bodies” (larger in the chest, smaller in the waist” left a bad taste in my mouth. Babydoll size tees are cut to fit SOME women’s bodies, certainly. But not all. If one of your own bloggers can’t fit the product, that’s saying something. Something bad.

  21. March 26, 2007 at 1:37 pm

    Edith, I was responding to a question about how the baby doll shirts fit. All I meant is that they’re cut to fit someone with breasts, unlike men’s shirts which tend to be very boxy.

    And I’m working on the plus-sized thing. If anyone has any suggestions for printing companies that don’t use sweatshop labor, don’t make money off of offensive (rape-promoting, etc) t-shirts, offer a wider variety of sizes and are affordable, please send them my way.

  22. March 26, 2007 at 2:54 pm

    Yeah, I get what you meant, but I have large breasts and I’ve never had trouble getting them inside a men’s shirt. I think the main difference between the cuts (other than simple overall smallness) is that the babydoll types have more room in the top part of the shirt than they do in the bottom half. So they’re built for someone with a larger top half than bottom, that is, wider chest than waist. Certainly a lot of women fit that, but many other women have a waist the same size as their chest, or larger than their chest. It seems to me that the babydoll shirts focus more on having a small waist rather than having breasts. But maybe I’m just splitting hairs. I think there is a distinction, however.

  23. March 26, 2007 at 4:55 pm

    Jill was actually replying to my very specific question re: the fit of the baby-doll shirts. Personally I’ve never had any trouble getting my boobs into a men’s t-shirt, I just find them unflattering, because the way my body happens to be built is the big boobs, big hips, relatively small waist in between. So anything remotely boxy in shape just makes me look pregnant. Hence my interest in the baby-doll shirts, which, unless they fit like a sausage casing, are more my style. But I’ve often wished for plus-sized baby doll shirts, because for women with my body type it’s a flatteringly shaped garment, but in the past I’ve been out of the S-XL size range.

    So I’ve been there, and it’s enormously frustrating to try and find clothes when your body doesn’t fit whatever shape the manufacturer has decided it should be. And the fact that sizing is all over the map is frustrating too. If manufacturers insist on making clothes that only fit a standardised body type (from which the vast majority of their customers differ in one way or another), the least they could do is standardise sizes as well. Use centimetres or something.

    Certainly I would also be interested in plus size Feministe t-shirts, if they were to become available. They’d make terrific presents!

  24. March 26, 2007 at 5:00 pm

    I am working on the plus-sized thing, just waiting to hear back from Radical Rags. If they won’t/can’t offer plus sizes, we’ll strategize where to go from there. The CafePress store is still open and they have plus sizes, but they’re more expensive (more expensive than RR in general, and the CafePress plus sizes are more expensive than the standard CafePress sizes). So that’s no good either. I promise I’m working on it, because I know this sucks. So, really, any suggestions are welcome.

  25. March 26, 2007 at 5:19 pm

    This would be the first time I have commented here, although I’m a regular reader and love this blog.

    It is so frustrating to be a social concious fat chick. WTF is that about? I have searched and searched. The best I have come up with is to wear second hand things. At least then I am reusing…

    I did a search on Co-op America’s Green Pages and found a total of THREE places that admit to selling plus sizes. Totally ridiculous. I mean, maybe a few others sell XXLs here and there, but only the Decent Exposures place actually has plus sizes that run up to size 4X (28-30.)

    http://www.kasperorganics.net
    http://www.decentexposures.com/index.shtml
    http://www.bluefishclothing.com

    Only the first two carry t-shirts and such. The third is super expensive, seriously hippiefied drapey type things. Some of which look nice but yeah… probably not what you are looking for.

    Oh and fuck wearing mens shirts. They are cut totally differently and are not comfortable. In order to fit my boobs, the darn things end up being huge in the arms and down to my knees.

  26. March 26, 2007 at 11:05 pm

    Someone really ought to wear the “Sanctimonious women’s studies major” shirt to the YearlyKos conference. Or several someones.

  27. March 26, 2007 at 11:45 pm

    Jill, could you please measure the shirt you have (after washing).
    The chart they have on the Radical Rags website makes the women’s extra large (30″ width) equivalent to a size 0 women’s shirt at American Apparel (the second google hit-which runs notoriously small). I would imagine that both brands have a similar amount of stretch. Size two is hardly a plus size.
    Otherwise, I like thier shirts. Glad to see the switch.

    There’s always American Apparel, which runs up to 3X and also has some organic shirts. Definitely not a sweatshop.

    Does the CEO of AmAp still masturbate during the interviews for female employees and otherwise engage in routine sexual harrassment of his female employees?
