This is an odd thread in this section.

It's like Judge Judy.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

It his property, so his rules (within reason).

Honestly? If I knew that they had a such an incredible beef with my clothing that they threatened to ban me from their home? If they're so insecure in their faith that a little T-shirt mockery gets their shit so thoroughly ruined? I wound't want to be there anyways. And if anyone questioned why I wasn't at the big family get together, I'd let them know that the host was so intimidated by my choice of silly T-shirts, that they had forbade me from entering their property.

When I used to live with my father and step mother while attending college, I didn't have any silly atheist T-shirts, but they did have the house covered in Christian paraphernalia. The really bad stuff was the kitchen cork bulletin board, where they pinned up really ignorant and hateful anti-atheist tripe from Facebook. After passing by it day in and day out for months, it eventually came to a head and I said something about it. I even remember the exact bullshit meme.

This wonderful piece of uncritical tripe right here...

So in line with their passive-aggressive bullshit, I took a post-it note and wrote 'This is bullshit, and if you care, I can explain why', and pinned it over top that. They cared all right, but not to hear what I said, they only cared about chewing me out because I hurt their feelings. From that day forward I knew I was a second class citizen in my own home, that my perspective was not welcome, that my opinions were of a lesser value. I was not an equal, and that was made abundantly clear.

It's his house, his rules. I'm in no rush to return there in protestation, because I don't feel welcome there. Now I moved out years ago, but that place stopped being home long before I moved out.



TL;DR - If someone cannot handle a silly T-shirt, I'd want nothing to do with them anyways. If you don't dig being an introvert, sorry I don't have better advice for you.

I always found shitting on someone's carpet was a sure sign I'd never be invited back.

Mind you, I only tried it twice.

Make him feel weak by telling him you'll respect his safe space.
