This t-shirt might make you recoil in disgust, according to the shocked parent who recently came across it while shopping.

The offending shirt, white with pink lettering, reads "Barely Legal" in block letters, with the word "Hustler" running vertically up one side.

The shirt, a toddler size 4, was discovered in a used clothing store, Pocahontas_Spaceman elaborated. "I grabbed it without even registering what the label said, it just looked like a good night shirt for the summer," the redditor wrote. "Carried it around for about 5 minutes before I read the text and threw up in my mouth a little."

Comments on the thread seemed generally to share Pocahontas_Spaceman's outrage. A few users even pointed out that there is a clothing company called T-Shirt Hell that sells adult and baby-sized shirts with similarly inflammatory slogans. ("Pedophiles don't fit in" and "Hung like a 5-year-old" are among a few of T-Shirt Hell's offerings for tots.)

Throughout history, one certain way to become a citizen, for women, was not to have a job or even have a child, but to have a husband. And to a large degree, that’s still the case. Ask any single woman with an advanced degree, corporate job or religious ordination, and she’ll probably tell you: the thing people keep asking me is but when am I going to get married.
