When I was 15, and still pretty new to Canada and English terms, my boyfriend at the time told me he liked wife beaters, I side eyed him so hard & called him out on it, while he reassured me it was simply the name of the shirt. 

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed how fucked up the term is. 

I’ve always hated that shit. I grew up calling them tank tops or undershirts and will continue to do so

This is the same as no one in my town being bothered by the street name “Lynchburg”. Ever if it was a guy’s last name, it sounds like a road were people were hanged. Being in the south, we know what people that would have been. I bet if there was a Hitler Street they would have changed it by now, even if it was named after Johnny Hitler, some random guy not attached to the holocaust.
