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
It’s just like how the toothbrush mustache is forever known as “The Hitler Mustache”
