    when reading a detailed argument, let alone a slogan on a t-shirt.

    First, we must assume that the t-shirt slogan represents a point of view, otherwise there is no point in even discussing it.   Once we assume this, Principle of Charity requires that we interpret the slogan in its best possible light.

    If we assume the worst possible assumption, as the diarist has then we would be saying that someone is trying to sell a t-shirt to women that is encouraging people to have non-consensual sex with them.

    From time-to-time, people say things like "I love you so much I would do anything for you" (at least romantic people do). Presumably "doing anything" would include "going to jail".
