Red Slash Through War Anti-War T-Shirt for Kids

The red slash through the word "war" is a straightforward anti-war expression for this kids' t-shirt, made sweatshop free by American Apparel and printed by Skreened.


Free Speech 4 Students Kids' T-Shirt

Since the Supreme Court ruling that students cannot carry controversial signs (like one reading "Bong Hits 4 Jesus) even off school grounds for fear that doing so will cast aspersions on the school to which they belong, the free speech rights of kids has been whittled down to the freedom to say things that don't bother anybody. But that's not what the Constitution says. That's not what the First Amendment says. Declare your loud and unyielding support of Free Speech for Students with this Free Speech 4 Students T-Shirt for Kids. Dare to wear it to school -- and dare your principal to take it off your back.


Clenched Fist of Protest T-Shirt for Kids

Kids have the right to protest, too, and there's a lot for them to be angry about. This raised and clenched fist expresses the defiance against authority and authoritarianism that is part of being young (and hopefully part of being older too).


Bong Hits 4 Jesus, But Not 4 Kids! Subversive and Healthy T-Shirt for Kids

A picture of Jesus Christ holding a bong is accompanied by the following text:

Bong Hits 4 Jesus, But Not 4 Kids! That's right, kids! Jesus can handle a hit of THC from the ol' water pipe. But that's only because he's the son of God and has supernatural powers. You don't live in that divine state of grace. Even filtered through water, marijuana smoke contains cancer-causing chemicals. Pot messes with your memory long after the high wears off. It makes you act pretty stupid, stupider than you think. And what else did your dealer mix into your stash? You don't need pot to be weird. Just read Heinlein, or play disco, or don't wash.

This sweatshop-free, made in the USA t-shirt is riffing off of the Supreme Court decision that kids cannot carry a message reading “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” to school. Yes, that's a problem for Free Speech rights. But it also assumes that kids are stupid, gullible and thoughtless. This t-shirt is healthily subversive.

Stem Cell Research: Who Supports It? Who Blocks It?

Stem Cell Research: the National Academy of Sciences endorses it, the American Medical Association supports it... and George W. Bush blocks it. Isn't it about time we blocked George W. Bush?


But Barack Obama Knows the Alphabet!

America's kids roll their eyes as they watch adults hyperventilate about the so-called "issue" of race in the 2008 presidential election. America's children are wise enough to know that race is not an issue, and wonder why adults can't move on beyond the ugly past.

Progressive kids mock the racism of the adults around them, and make fun of the thick-headed presidency of George W. Bush, with this t-shirt that satirizes the racist language of adults who question whether a black man can ever be President of the United States: I like Barack Obama, but is America ready for President who knows the whole alphabet? President Bush can't even make it to W.

As with all the items made at skreened, the kids' shirts with this pro-Obama design are made in the USA without any sweatshop labor, so you'll do the right thing as you support the right candidate in 2008.
