Tacky or just plain disgusting?
I just don't know. I certainly don't think they're funny. I think they go beyond tacky. But then again I'm the girl that thinks tattoos are tacky and pierced lips are gross. I'm not a big fan of scarification or body modifications, and I think, given the choice between the two, I'd go for the Stigmittens over the real live stigmata.
I question the motive and the humor. I hate when people make fun of other people's values and beliefs. Which, btw, is why I am not welcoming of religious cards into my own home. Because it's rude, it's dismissive, and it's insensitive. Anyone that doesn't get that, in my opinion, has a real problem with their own self-awareness. But that's neither here nor there. I don't think poking fun of something like the stigmata by making mittens depicting the bloody scar is wholesome fun for all. I wonder the reactions there would be if people who are religious saw some kid wearing those. I'm guessing those mittens could incite some real hatred.
But I'm curious. What do you think? Are they funny? Would you wear them? Do you find them insulting? Stumble It! JBlog Me
