Queer, Too | Unisex Short-Sleeve T-Shirt
The word “queer” is an ideal subject Type Wear's Boundless collection, so much so, that we created two versions. Its original meaning — and the first definition you come upon today, in your dictionary of choice — is an adjective referring to something or someone that is “strange,” “peculiar,” or “odd.” Beginning in the late 19th century, the word morphed into a derogatory label for gay people, and through the late 1970s into the 1980s, the cultural pejorative faded somewhat. One might say the word returned — conversationally, anyway — to its original meaning.
By the early 2000s, queer was increasingly used to describe a broad spectrum of non-normative sexual and gender identities — and politics. One might say that Academic disciplines such as queer theory and queer studies blossomed, sharing a general opposition to binarism, normativity, and a perceived lack of intersectionality, some of them only tangentially connected to the LGBT movement. Queer arts, queer cultural groups, and queer political groups are examples of modern expressions of queer identities. One might say the some of the people who were once castigated for being (being a) “queer” have reappropriated the word, however, it is not a universally accepted term even within the LGBT community.
The design is printed on the best-selling Gildan short sleeve, soft-style tee, made of durable cotton fabric and has a double-stitched neckline and sleeves. It's a classic unisex t-shirt that fits well on both men and women. It's a standard length, absent excessive length or bagginess.
