    This is a reference to something Pat Robertson said. He said something like “Feminism causes women to become witches and lesbians”.

      Pat Robertson went hard. [The feminist movement] is a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.

      The kill their children part is omitted from humorous re-quotes, but he was being willfully cruel and hyperbolic.

        This is good context info. But it still doesn’t address OPs question. It could be worn by someone who supports Pat Robertson and his statement. Or obviously by someone as sarcasm.

          I don’t know the answer. But I know the context. Since then, the sorry I skipped church sentiment has been a pro-feminist statement when it’s not on the back of someone who appears to be an old man.

          I don’t know what it means to this wearer, though.
