This is why: species like this this shark/eel (it has 300 teeth!) have survived for an estimated 80 million years. It has outlasted just about every other living species.
This is the type of organism that thrives at life. It is aggressive, lean, dumb, and impervious to reason or sentiment.
Sadly, in the world of politics, it is often the ideas and memes that share the same characteristics that win out (i.e. gay marriage is evil, immigrants are ruining the country”, “your religion is wrong”, blah, blah).
Just like this thing, those ideas can only chomp away at whatever is in front of it.
This shirt is terrible and offensive. But so is the reaction to it.
Why are we teaching kids that it matters what some stranger has on his shirt? I hope I do not raise a kid that believes what someone else wears has an impact on what he or she can accomplish in their lifetimes.
