Opinion needed!  

Is it culturally insensitive or tacky in any way to wear a shirt like this to the New Year celebration in Chinatown?

YES! What are you THINKING?
Not culturally insensitive, but not a great idea either...
It shows a willingness to join in the festivities, so yeah, wear it
If you can't wear a shirt like that to Chinatown, where CAN you wear it?? DO IT!

Comments SO TOTALLY welcomed.

BTW, regardless of the shirt I wear, rat earrings WILL be worn ^_^

I demand pictures at least.

Pictures will be taken, although most will be taken by me, so no guarantees. I'll try to get at least one group shot, though.

I actually have two different types, one that is gold cut outs of rats facing sideways, and others that are more 3-d but the gold rats dangle from their noses. I'll be wearing the sideways cutouts. I'll try to get a picture, though.

I can't find a pic of the other ones...

I like them both... :)

I lost my rat pin at the parade. It matched the gold cutout earrings, and apparently the manufacturer doesn't exist anymore. So now I'll never have a complete set of rat jewelry.

Oh crap! Well, I would not say never, someone else may make one that is even cuter. Just keep your eyes open. Oh yeah, check craigs list and ebay, you just never know.....

I checked eBay. I'm hoping there might be something at the rat show we're attending in two weeks.

I think if you dressed like this and went around talking like Warner Oland then there are issues. But certainly dressing with respect to the culture should not be any issues

I actually got a couple of complements on the shirt...
