A mixed martial arts fighter who won her competition while wearing a viral t-shirt now says she plans to auction the shirt and give 100 per cent of the proceeds to a popular veterans charity.
Part of the revival of bare knuckle boxing, Sheena Starr won a competition over the weekend while wearing the viral, profanity sporting t-shirt. Fans and detractors across social media expressed their support for their fighter and bemusement at the political message emblazoned on her shirt.

Starr won the bare knuckle boxing competition after landing several blows to her opponent’s eye, forcing the referee to end the fight.
According to her Facebook page, Starr now plans to set up an auction for the shirt and give 100 per cent of the proceeds to 22 2 None and The Together We Can Campaign, a group seeking to aid veterans after they return to the United States.
“Average 22 veterans commit suicide every day,” wrote Starr. “22 to [sic] MANY!” She added that she has “seen first-hand the wonderful things this charity does for our veterans,” and is happy to support them.
22 2 None is a non-profit organization “lead by a board of fellow Veterans to help raise awareness and provide support in hopes to combat veteran suicide,” while The Together We Can Campaign is a related group showing veteran advocates who work to end veteran suicide.
She is asking her friends and supporters for help finding the proper venue to auction the shirt before announcing further details.
Looking for suggestions on what would be the best platform and also the most user-friendly platform to auction off my…
This is not the first time Starr wore explicit clothing during one of her matches, previously wearing a shirt with the self deprecating words “I Have No T*ts” to one of her fights earlier this month.

eBay BANS Six Dr. Seuss Books That Will No Longer Be Published Due to “Racist Images”
This is getting completely out of hand.
The hysteria continues: eBay has banned the reselling of six Dr. Seuss books that will no longer be published due to “racist imagery,” saying that these listings now violate their policies.
eBay had emailed people who put the books up for sale early Thursday morning. With a subject line titled “Your listing was removed: Offensive material policy,” eBay’s email reads as follows:
“We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our Offensive material policy. Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.
“Dr. Seuss Enterprises has stopped publication of this book due to its negative portrayal of some ethnicities. As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not relist the item, there will be no negative impact to your account. Please review our Offensive Materials Policy prohibits this item for more information [sic].
“You can’t relist items we’ve ended. Please ensure your current and future listings follow this policy.”
Example screenshot below:
The six books that Dr. Seuss Enterprises said they would no longer publish include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.
Big League Politics reported Tuesday that a school district in northern Virginia stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day because of the “racial undertones” of such books. Although the district said they would not ban Dr. Seuss books from their libraries and classrooms, there’s no doubt they’ll consider removing the six books now considered irredeemably racist.
eBay is probably the first domino to fall. Expect Amazon and others to follow suit.
