    Come on now, women have as just as much right to be part of the precious metals extraction industry as men, I don't see the problem.

    Nike's been looking to break into the competitive nose-picking apparel industry for a while now, good on them.

    The mining industry was originally male dominated.

    It's supposed to be taken as a joke. "Gold digger" as in digging deep for a gold medal. So it's basically supposed to be a negative label applied in a positive sense. It seems like the shirt understated the in-joke too much.

    What Optimus said.

    I found it rather obvious, seeing as how its Nike, a sports apparel company.

    Digging deep...for the gold.

    How is it sexist?

    It's not saying all women are gold-diggers.

    The funny thing is, this shirt is clearly meant solely for women to purchase and wear.

    It would be a different thing if Nike made a man's T-shirt saying "Women are nothing but gold diggers," but this is clearly a different scenario. If this is truly offensive to women, as some claim, then the free market will certainly bear that out.

    Someone needs to tell certain women rallying against this t-shirt that it's meant to be an ironic statement of athleticism, not the scarlet letter they always knew would come...

    This is why nobody likes humorless feminists.

    Coca Cola ripoff
    If I was a Lawyer and worked for them on this case, I'll make a $#%^load of cash
    Even if I worked for Nike and defended the right for this Gold Digger T-Shirt, and won of course

    Problem is, law isn't my thing

    That really is the only problem, because if law really was your thing, Nike and Cocacola would be winning a lawsuit they would never have won.

    How are any of us ever gonna win any cases!? Go to Law School Spider-Aziz, you're our only hope.
