In the meantime I hope to convey my tongue-in-cheek intent. I made this design with the aim of irking the masses. Not a specific group of people, but I realize humor can be a polarizing thing at times.
Anyway, if it meets with rejection I'll understand...
I wish you could spend an hour with OCD so you could understand how misguided and insensitive this is. I don't demand that all Woot's shirts be politically correct, but I do wish they would all be sensitive to serious medical conditions.
This shirt does nothing but perpetuate a false stereotype about what OCD really is as well as minimizing the damage it can do to a person's life.
And for the record, while I'm sure some people with OCD are meticulous about their clothing, my socks are not matching right now. I spend my time counting and memorizing and repeating sentences and words over and over in my head and worrying about everything from allowing anything green in my kitchen to my neighbor breaking into my apartment and killing my cat to my fear of Manhattan north of the George Washington Bridge. I don't have time to care about my socks.
