That shirt design is as offensive to "Team Guys" as the movie "G.I. Jane."

I wouldn't mind wearing a t-shirt with a small embroidered American flag over the heart. On the back could be an embroidered 1911, and the embroidered message could be: "If I got you in my sights, you're just one finger pull away from being dead. LOL!"

lol

Right because that's not overly macho. And the SEALs don't carry 1911s? :confused:

The young "Team Guys" are always overly obsessed with the image and how many pushups & situps they can do. Talk to some of the older/experienced guys they're a bit more laid back. I don't know how they'd feel about that shirt but I think they might get a chuckle out of it... it's not degrading, just a play on their name. After all, those are some pretty tough looking seals.

Overly macho?

The OP asked us females if we'd wear such a t-shirt design. I'm female and my answer is, No, I would not. I look at the design and I don't see an attempt at humor, wit or patriotism. I see something that makes me wonder what the heck the message is. Now if the design was a picture of an ideal hunky man in a U.S. Navy Seals outfit, sniper rifle at the ready, I might. But if I'm going to wear a design depicting an animal or two, that animal better be a kittycat, a puppy, a wolf, a tiger, a horse, an eagle -- not some fat seals. Look at the U.S. Navy Seals online store -- where is a fat seal on a t-shirt for sale there? I see only a skinny angry seal mascot, and I wouldn't even wear that one.

Here's one tasteful design from the Seals website I might wear:

Besides I'm an Army brat. If I'm going to wear a t-shirt with a military logo, it's going to say U.S. Army on it.

If you still find my reasons for choosing a different t-shirt design unfathomable, then please don't ever buy me a t-shirt.

They are "frogmen" more than a "seal"- as in the animal. Which are more amphibious, hence sea air and land.

Someone went overboard with the cute and fuzzie?

This is on the same level as the color pink for everything female -- yeech!

Navy SEAL mascot is an actual seal named Sammy IIRC. UDT is Freddie the frog.

Well, pardon someone for attempting some humor around here.

It's honestly fairly amusing, and i would wear the shirt to see who gets the reference.
C'mon, cut the person some slack here.
