Maybe they don't want to eat the brains. Maybe they just want someone to help them spell "heteronormative".

What about female zombies that prefer women and male zombies that prefer men?

Seems a bit exclusionary here.

(Or phrased differently: "what sgaon said.")

Pretty much what I thought, too. I would have totally gotten it, but unfortunately, I'm a boy and like boys with brains

I said this on facebook but I'll say it here too: I think it's the phrase that's most important, not the girl or boy who's saying it. Therefore, since either print can be purchased in men or women sizes, everyone is covered... EQUALly.

No, it's definitely important. If I were to wear the female shirt proclaiming my love of men with brains, I would be essentially enforcing a heteronormative view.

This isn't necessarily something that is bad. However, it is not in line with who I am. I am anything but. I'm as faaaar away from heterosexual as one can get.

I am also part of the LGBT community.

Would have bought a shirt if there was a choice that matched identity.


Love the idea though.

O-M-G! Think about the families with babies that are born without fully formed brains... they'll be SOOOO... insulted!!!!

It's just a T-Shirt. Don't expect retailers to cater to every sub-group that exists.

I think having it this way makes the point the most obvious. While some want what you want, not everyone would get the punch line without being told.

Pretty sad for woot that basically every post here is about missing 50% of the options. Woops.

Wish you could pick and choose if you want the male or female zombie with "men" or "women" in the text... How complicated could that be? ;P

Is it just me, or does the male look like Stewie from Family Guy?


Did they made a Zombie Family Guy ep yet? Hmmm.

Who does the girl look like?

It would seem that, if you're a male who likes men, you could buy the male t-shirt and just take a black sharpie to the WO and there you go...

For women, it's a bit more complicated...

Reality: A nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Nice phrasing *grins*

Just adding my voice so that woot gets an idea of how many of us there are that would prefer other options. I would have ordered several of these if there had been m/m and f/f options - 90% of my christmas list is comprised of queer, zombie-loving geeks.

So umm..yeah, I prefer women with brains.

I don't like guys or girls, even if they had the homosexual options, I'd be left out. You know what I do? Sit and wait for tomorrows shirt. Woot kind of went above and beyond offering 100% more shirt than they normally do. Be happy.

Can't add anything that hasn't already been said. But yeah, a gay/lesbian/bi version would have been beyond epically amazing.

I agree - i would buy one if it were a guy saying "I Prefer Men with Brains"... but - oh well...

Nope - I get it. You already said you'd be offended if there were a gay option. It's you that doesn't get it. If you're offended by someone wanting something - then you must have thin skin. I'm not offended, just disappointed.

Agree... Moreover; it would be like saying that you do drag... not all gay men do drag. That's a stereotype.

I dunno.. it would not been too hard to have an left/right option of a male or female zombie on one side, and a "Men/Women/People" option for the right...

The shirt thing is going more towards an "on demand" model - why they now offer reprints of shirts beyond the top 20. They can do it, they just need to see there is an interest for people to buy it.

It's all about $$ and buying power... and they won't know what people want if we don't talk about it.

I'm offended because I don't think sexuality should be taken lightly.

You don't get it because it's not about preference, it's about zombie dating.

That level of customization only comes with the digital prints, these are to be silk screened.

I implied no such thing. I said the shirt isn't about preference but zombie dating.

I'm also not into guys or girls... or anything really. That relationship jazz just isn't my thing. But aren't these shirts kind of inappropriate for children, considering the use of "men" and "women"? Seems like it would be soliciting unwanted attention.
