    that's not what it means, period.
    we can play this game to justify dk running it for hours.
    it's disgusting.
    what nonsense to suggest it means "you would kill someone to be with me. " utter nonsense.

      I'm not trying to "justify" dk running it. I think it's a pretty tacky ad, and agree that it should be pulled from the site.

      I also said flat-out that I can easily see the jailbait angle, which is itself, after all, a reference to sex with underage girls, aka statuatory rape.

      I'm just saying that I don't necessarily think that whoever wrote the slogan meant it quite the way you're taking it. Just because they meant to promote a different offensive idea from the offensive idea you think they meant doesn't justify the shirt or the ad any more.
