Tank tops
Mood:  incredulous
Topic: Random musings
I have to get this off my chest (no pun intended). Why in the world has the term "wifebeater" or "wife-beater" become an acceptable substitute for a tank top or athletic shirt? I even started seeing it crop up in lesbian fiction, which bothers me greatly. If the term is derived from the stereotyped man wearing an athletic shirt while beating his wife, why should this become a popular term for this type of shirt? And why the hell should it be considered a description of a sexy undershirt worn by a hot lesbian?

Call me old-fashioned, but this trend sucks.

JS, who likes to wear TANK TOPS or A-shirts (as she heard it called in her youth) while riding her bicycle...
