Poll: Does The Term “Wife Beater Tank-Top” Offend You?

A couple weeks ago we did a post on this awesome, but expensive tank-top/garter combo from Kiki De Montparnasse — because the tank was the kind with the ribbing, I used what I thought was the most common term for the tank itself. A wife beater. Last night, I got an email from a reader which read:

Would Eating Steak Make Me More Attractive?

Can a vegetarian and an omnivore have a lasting relationship? And what happens if one person has a gluten allergy and the other subsists on pasta?
