How many colors is this? It looks like more than 6 and you are limited to 6 plus the shirt color.

It's only six. I reused a lot purple in the backdrop grunge.

In that case, I commend you! It's impressive to make the illusion of more colors out of very few.

It appears that you have 8 different base choices. There are only 4. Are you trying to represent

A=T one way and T=A the other?

I love the design, but I that would bother me.

There are only two sets of base pairs possible: AT and GC.

Maybe it's some crazy DNA/RNA combination! In which case AU is also included... which still doesn't make sense with the colors. Hm.

I know this is an "homage" to the crazy youtube video, but another view point is that the shirt is making the statement that homosexuality is genetic.

I'd buy it just for the fun of pissing off the conservatives!

This is a large part of the reason I voted for this design as well. Not so much with the intent of antagonizing anyone, but more with the thought of making the statement "Yes, as a matter of fact, I *was* born this way. Deal with it."

Often times, I respect your points. However, voting for a shirt that is so clearly off topic to make a political point (that I 100% disagree with, by the way) substantially bothers me.

It's still not really on topic, though.

You could make the same basic statement with the fine folks of Made With otterific, and not even need to vote for an off-topic rehash of an already tired meme just because it unintentionally holds some truth.

The shirt is no less off-topic than most of the derby this week, and is nowhere close to the fog. I sincerely doubt my one vote, politically-driven or not, makes one jot of difference. If it stood a chance of printing, I might reconsider my position, but as it stands, the shirt is just like my rampant queerness ... a harmless and mostly irrelevant bit of fun.

Still not DNA. DNA has A-T and C-G. You have 6 color units pairing up, making 3 base pairs.

Re: double helix rainbow


I'd wear this shirt all the time because I love the meme and I love the possibly political statement. If I chose to be the way I am, then my subconscious is a very rude child who likes screwing with me. That being said, it's a shame this shirt isn't in the fog. I'd buy one...or two...maybe just three...
