You don't see me beating people wearing a shirt with a British flag on it or cursing at someone wearing a t-shirt that says "Praise Allah!" on it yet those could also invoke 'painful memories' of past events. Water off a duck's back, water under the bridge, water <adjective> <noun>. Get over it and ***** about something that is truly wrong.
It's wrong to wear picture of a terrorist on your shirt and walk around offending people. Would you like to sit next to some one wearing a t-shirt with picture of Osama Bin laden on it saying september 11th was great or something like that?!?

What I would like them to do and what they have the right to do are two totally separate things. Besides, the message on Diaz's bag isn't even that negative "Serve the People" that's kind of the government's job.

A variety of reasons.

- No Money
- I'm not a woman
- I don't have any belts that match the color
- I'm not gay
- Man-bags aren't really my thing
- Holding it would tilt my center of gravity and cause me to walk with a limp
- Never been to China
- Not a big fan of anything that says "Made in China" on it other than fireworks
- Does it come in beige?
- Everything I need I can carry in my pockets
- I'm not cool enough
- Low self esteem

That pretty much sums it up. Next question?

How about a Che Guevara t-shirt then?

Khaki is close to beige.

Not a big fan of communism, I've never considered him a bad guy though. Sure he wasn't the nicest character, but when put against Mao, Stalin, Kim and other leaders of worldwide socialist movements I don't think Che is that bad. Granted my experience with his feats/accomplishments/atrocities is not very deep, but he seems to me more like a fighter going after true military goals than a terrorist targeting women and children. Guerrilla warfare may be a ***** to fight, but I don't consider it any less honorable than standing 80 paces apart and firing a muzzle loader.

Fair enough. But if I were to give you one of them for free, would you have accepted that?

Are you willing to wear or carry something that offends many people? Say a t-shirt with "9/11 was an inside job" or "Stalin rocks"... something like that.

Will you be wearing one if it was handed to you for free?

If it was something I believed, yes, I would wear it. If I was unaware of the items meaning/symbolism but liked... the pretty colors, yes, I would ware it. Hell I may even wear something just to annoy people, but I would not knowingly wear an item of clothing that I knew would offend many people if I did not believe it. For example, you give me a shirt that says "eat pork" on it and send me to a Muslim nation that doesn't have punishments for wearing such a shirt and I will wear it because dammit I love pork. But once again, I won't wear it if I don't believe it.
