Your Pleasure Is My Submission Unisex T-Shirt
The feminist artist Barbara Kruger creates her work by recontextualizing found images and adding text to them. In Kruger's piece "Your comfort is my silence," she features a man shushing. The speaker is presumably a woman, and the message is directed at the man. The woman's silence is what creates the man's comfort.
My shirt is inspired by Kruger's work. In Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony of her rape, she described the "uproarious laughter" as being unforgettable. That laughter came from Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. As Kavanaugh pinned Ford down, he and Judge laughed. For Ford it was one of the most traumatic moments in her life, for the her assaulters... it was funny.
In my shirt the speaker is a woman and the reader is, well, you know who.
