Thinking of making a label and I have 2 first drafts, what do you think?
Would people be offended by these labels?
Brand name is Aggressively Apathetic.


If I go with the green one or something similar I will trim the extra stuff outside the circle, these are just rough drafts.

Edited to remove them. Clearly it is offensive and that is not my intention.

IMO it is Aggressively inappropriate, and really borders on troll like posting. Alcoholism is not something to treat so flippantly; I argue that this community is about responsible brewing and consuming, and are ambassadors for such lifestyle. Accordingly this community recognizes the inherent dangers of alcohol, and also supports those who struggle with the gripping and harrowing affects it has on their own lives, or of those they love.

I believe there is a world of other avenues for you to pursue, and would strongly suggest you explore them.

I have to agree with cyberbackpacker concerning the AA label as it is inappropriate. In the words of Jim Rome, did drunk driving or kiddie porn not want any of that?

repost! We are not ALL so easily offended by good humor.
Don't base your opinion of the forum by a guy with 97 piosts and one with 16! Let the moderator's decide what's appropriate.

Agreed, the mod will ask you to take it down if its overly offensive but 2 people is not a majority.

Having seen the OP before it was removed, I have to say that I found nothing offensive about it. It took me a bit before I even got the AA reference (I can be kinda dense, sometimes). It was a clean, simple, label.

That being said, I can see that someone (or at least two someones) may take a PC slant on the AA angle, but I've never been that guy.

"My name is Kelsch, and I'm an @sshole."

Admittance is the first step, I guess...

I stand by my claims; as has been made evident, post count clearly is not indicative of possessing good taste or understanding of serious medical and social ills. I applaud the OP for removing the label, as appropriating the symbol of Alcoholics Anonymous for a beer label or brewery logo is never in "good humor", and is not merely the reflection of someone taking a "PC slant".

People that are familiar with alcoholism, or been unfortunate to be impacted by it, I believe would agree with these statements.

My opinion is not everyone's, I get it, but being conscious, and acting accordingly, of serious issues is something I believe in regardless if I am in a minority. Doing the right thing, regardless of what other people might say/do, is the right thing to do.

End rant.
