Gluten Scares Me

As somebody with celiac disease I can’t stand that this has become a big joke to people. Gluten is poison to people with celiac disease. Would you do a shirt making fun of Parkinson’s disease? MS?

Hey there! We certainly don’t take celiac disease, or any disease lightly. In fact, we have a Wootployee or several with different levels of gluten intolerance. Be assured, though, that this design wasn’t meant to be offensive or inflammatory to anyone.

It’s become a joke because people without celiac disease are avoiding gluten for misconceived health reasons. This is what is turning a serious but specific and understood disease into a scary misunderstood boogy-man, which I believe is what makes this t-shirt so funny.

This. Exactly this. Thanks for commenting. :slight_smile:
