ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A North Texas school district has banned a T-shirt sold by one of one of its high school’s football booster club after the school student newspaper questioned whether the slogan on its front was a rape innuendo.

The Arlington school district banned the shirt designed by seniors on the Martin High School football team and printed by the team’s booster club.

The shirt includes the slogans “We take what we want” and “Shhhhhhh, just let it happen.”

The school newspaper “The Warrior Post” questioned if the slogan “connotes rape culture.” School district spokeswoman Leslie Johnson tells KXAS-TV (https://bit.ly/1wOxrrx) of Fort Worth and Dallas that the booster club and coaches didn’t construe a rape message. Nevertheless, she said the team has stopped wearing the shirt.
