No girly V-neck???

I still struggle with self harm. I'm not emo or maladjusted- I'm actually pretty successful. That said, seeing pictures (and hipstertastic models) mocking a condition I have fought long and hard against (and which, ten to one, neither they nor the creator of this design have ever experienced) is still kind of painful. I can't help the way my brain is wired, and I've had to work long and hard to overcome my impulse to take my problems out on myself. Mental illness still has an incredible stigma today, and this kind of crap is incredibly damaging. What's next, Threadless? Are you going to print a shirt mocking, I don't know, multiple sclerosis? Or, ooh, how about we make fun of recovering alcoholics? Honestly, I expected better of you guys.
