A gray jersey can be worn and the cyclist neednt blend in.

Helmet color. Bike color. Rear blinky light. Cyclist swaying because they are pedaling.
right there- 4 other legitimate ways a driver can see you, even if the jersey happened to exactly match the road(which it doesn't look to match roads around me).

I do appreciate the humor in your Darwin award though. For this topic though.

I actually think it's somewhat clever. It's a humorous take on the concept of "Man's supposed evolvement from apes. I would wear it. I'm conservative and have a sense of humor.

Agree; that's my concern. Many drivers can't see or aren't watching. You need all the help you can get. Bright color, yes; gray no.

Don't really understand why this is a concern. If it doesn't offend you or create conflict with immediate family then go for it. The imagery has been so over done for the last 20+ years that I'd wonder about the person who finds it shocking.

Shilling...

...to promote sales from an AliExpress business. I agree with this assessment.

As to the jersey, not particularly clever or original. It's less than worth wearing or displaying.

It's like the popular television show "Big Bang Theory", which is written by adolescents to amuse dull people by portraying what the audience might have imaginined smart people are like. A complete fail...

Would people get triggered? Maybe.
I would not take it off and I would keep wearing it until someone does.
I wear a "This guy needs a beer" jersey quite often. To a recovering alcoholic, this might be triggering. If he/she were to come up to me and ask me to not wear it on the next group ride/tour, I'd honor his/her request (provided that I knew he/she would show up again). This would be a reasonable request, and I am an understanding person.
But I would certainly not go out of my away to not wear it if no one said anything simple because I though someone "might" be triggered or offended. That's what SJW's do, and I don't play that game.

So as an ape riding a bicycle with a unique jersey, the last thing I worry about is what you think of my clothing. Wear it, ride and enjoy. We all are in a state of some kind of evolution, although at this point I think the hairier apes are beating us.

Evolution seems to mostly go in reverse not sure why we'd want that.

lol seriously?

my 'testimony' is that in different group quite a few people asked where I found it.

and the most quality of jerseys like $ 13 in there is not really recommendable to other people, I'd say.

where is this thread going? think I probably won't be able to even try jokes to Americans.

then maybe gotta love Canadian more then, just alternatively. I think they're actually decent, properly educated and humble people.

It’s going just where you hoped it would.

+1. The meme from which it was taken has been floating around the Internets for a while.

This can be a trigger for some, but it is popular on cars.

Amusingly, a friend gave me one of those and I put it on my bike, but took it back off after realizing that proclaiming "survival of the fittest" while contending with traffic might not be the best idea. I was also parking my bike at work, and decided it wasn't politically correct.

Since I bear more than a passing resemblance to Snuffaluffagus (sp?) and Big Bird's lower abdomen, I'd actually think this was pretty funny. I'd wear the crap out of that kit.

That sounds like someone who are not only incapable to distinguish reality and perspective of reality, but also who’s spitting to one’s own face.

I’m grateful that I was able to get an opportunity to learn that I am just a human with 5 senses and subjectivity so only what I have is mere my own perspective, neither truth itself nor so called facts.

I mean, unlike something sounds like a bell like you said. 😂

I congratulate you for your sanity! (that show also triggers me, not in a good way)

I'm not a fan of hollyweird.

thank you asking a real question. it will wrap almost everything up I think.

I've placed an order even before posting this, and after that, I was concerned with the decal.

now I just gotta wait for a long long month until it arrives.

It depends on where you wear it.

In Kansas,it might get you shot at, run over, and/or hanged.

It would certainly get you a lot of dirty looks.

In more enlightened places (aka the rest of the world), not so much.
