This t-shirt was available from Delia’s, a mail-order catalog that targets girls between the ages of 12 and 15. They stopped selling it after some complaints.
Presumably (hopefully) the intended meaning of "tight" was the one along the lines of cool/hip/awesome.
Yeah, that's the way I read it as well. I can see the objections to it, though.
I'm sure the double meaning didn't go unnoticed.
I', pretty sure tight means cool in this case. But still, good for people for being concerned with suggestive branding, and good for Delias for being so willing to removie potentially suggestive merchandise from the market. I'd rather have people get upset over a mistake than ignore a real issue any day.
Personally, I think people are way to uptight. Relax and have a little fun! You think 12 year olds don't understand (and/or engage in) sexual humor/innuendo?
