This tank top has the name of the soc.motss Usenet group across the front in rainbow letters. soc.motss was a pre-social media gathering place for LGBTQ individuals to communicate via the internet in a time when being gay was not widely accepted by society. "Motss" stood for "Members of the same sex". The forum was created by programmer Steve Dyer, and was intended to be a friendly community forum, not a debate board for whether being gay was acceptable. Some of the chat lingo created to communicate on this board, called the Bear Code, inspired chat speak that came later. 

This shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium.
