Te Fiti Baseball T-Shirts
Inspired by the Handmaids Tale this design features the iconic words Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum. This is a made-up Latin phrase which was a schoolboy joke written in the Commanders Latin schoolbook. It roughly translates to “don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Outside the world of the book and new TV series on Hulu, the phrase has become a feminist rallying cry for women.

"nolite te bastardes carborundorum" is said to mean: "Don't let the bastards grind you down." Revisiting Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale after all these years is still chilling. Resist. Unite. Stand up for what's right. ©050617
