The WHAT EXACTLY IS HETEROSEXUALITY SHORT SLEEVE TEE is a unisex fit, short sleeve t-shirt made of a dense and sturdy 100% USA-grown cotton jersey with a rib-knit crewneck collar and a straight hem. Available in BLACK or WHITE in sizes XS-5X.
The text for this shirt has been adapted from Alan Wakeman's 1975 poster mural that mocked heterosexist platitudes. The front is printed with the text "WHAT EXACTLY IS HETEROSEXUALITY AND WHAT CAUSES IT," and the back is printed with a list of sardonic theories as to the root cause of heterosexuality. Alan Wakeman (1936-2015) was a British author, playwright and gay rights activist.
TL;DR— we recommend ordering "true to size." We know that can mean a lot of different things, but this is a fairly standard-sized tee. Ricky (they/them) is wearing a size MEDIUM in the fit photos on this page.
