This is a shirt about the hero and riveter, Emma Gonzalez, and her message about gun reform, which I am all for helping to spread in any little way I can....If this is rejected, I would totally understand why. I realize it walks along a thin line. I just felt moved to make something, and when thinking on the theme of a SUPERPERSONS derby, I could think of no better representation than Emma.
Thank you, Oakenspirit, both for the submission and for the recognition that it walks a fine line. We’ve discussed the entry this morning, and while we appreciate its merit, we have ultimately decided that we need to reject it. Because the design uses the likeness of a minor, we would need written consent from her legal guardian before we could print it.
