Pansy Screen Printed T-shirt Pre-Sale

£25.00 GBP

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

Meet the first t-shirt from a new collection which turns historically homophobic slurs into something beautiful and proud. 

The insult "pansy" actually comes from the French "pensée", which is the past tense of "to think", but is also a feminine reflexive. This term came about in the mid-15th century and essentially it was used to negatively describe a man who thinks too much, "like a woman" . If a man was not brawny, active or robust, he was thought to be slightly effeminate. It wasn't until the late 1920s that the term "pansy" was aimed at gay men.

The actual pansy flower however is robust and can bounce back time and again when trampled on, all the while flaunting its beauty. So going by this definition, hell yes to Pansies everywhere! 🌸
