Response to yuiyoshida (Original post)

Sun May 3, 2015, 08:30 PM

74. The older generation won't see the T-shirt in this picture.

They will only see the "gang tattoos", and that will conjure up all the stereotypes of punks and motorcycle gangs. While myself (at age 70) don't have a problem with ink, I know for a fact that many, if not most of the people of my generation have a very negative reaction to that kind of skin art. A big part of good communication is knowing your audience. If you want people to hear your message don't start out by alienating them.

Go ahead, flame me for being out of touch and narrow minded. But I'll say it again: I don't have a problem with it, but most of the people of my age that I know will have a problem with it. If you don't want their votes, this is the right way to not get them.
