The “sexist” shirt worn by rocket scientist Matt Taylor was actually made by a female friend who gave it to him for his birthday

So this rocket scientist named Matt Taylor lands a spacecraft on a comet – the first time that this has ever been done – and a bunch of people claiming to be “feminists” accuse him of “sexism” because he was wearing a shirt which depicts scantily clad women holding guns.

My first reaction to reading about this was that if these women are holding guns, they are not victims – they are empowered.

Then, when I looked at the shirt, I immediately saw that this was a richly detailed, beautiful, colorful piece of art. I know the difference between art and porn, and this is definitely not porn. It is art.

The shirt was handmade by a woman named Elly Prizeman, who is friends with Taylor, and who gave it to him for his birthday.

The people who falsely claimed the shirt was “sexist” bullied Taylor to the point that he cried on international television.

Prizeman said of this:

Dr. Matt Taylor is an amazing, kind, loving and sensitive person.

I never expected him to wear my gift to him for such a big event and was surprised and deeply moved that he did.

I made that shirt for his birthday last month as I make clothes just as a hobby and he asked if I would make him one.

He is a close and very loved friend so made sure I did this for his birthday present.

I appreciate that everyone is entitled to their opinion and having worked with people and events for a long time I have certainly learnt that you are never going to please everyone….

I am so proud of Matt and his achievements and the fact he is an interesting and very brave person to do what he did with the very sweet gesture he made towards my gift and to wear his individuality with pride.

It has certainly made history more exciting and bold.

The clothing industry has expressed interest in mass producing Prizeman’s shirt.

    Like racists, the most sexist are the ones who scream sexism the loudest.

      It’s not a myth that women are sexually objectified more than men in our society. I’m saying this objectively. (I don’t hate men because I am one.) But just look at the porn industry, spandex pants, or bikinis at the beach.

      The sad truth, though, is that women are their own worst enemies. Most objectification is women doing is to themselves. Men are just happy to go along for the ride.

        How does it go?

        She WAS mad but I was happy!
        Because she was not mad at me . . . .

    I really find this a sad commentary on so called “feminists”. Are they so insecure in their own minds that they get unstrung by a shirt? They are nothing more than play ground bullies who, because of political correctness, have become a scourge to the rest of the females of the world.

      Well said! They are playground bullies. Unfortunately I followed the link to the larger photo and read the article. I hope the designer gets a big contract and I see that shirt all over the place. That would show those so-called feminists that they do NOT speak for all women. Good grief. The way they were whining I was expecting some kind of pornography. How long until they start making people with tattoos in this style cover them up?
