The Monday Spree
June 23, 2008
Well, we certainly got a lot of attention for Marc Jacob's T-Shirt.
Let's clarify a few things.
We don't actually think that Marc is some sort of White Gay Supremacist, nor are we endorsing the T-shirt ourselves, we just found it worthy of note.
Our take is that, although Marc has yet to make a comment himself, he found it an intriguing conflation of two nearly diametrically opposed symbols, meant to provoke thought and conversation.
And it did.
In a temporary change of form, here's a few of the sites that picked us up today:
• The Cut
• Towleroad, who contrasted Marc's window with Ralph Lauren's now standard rainbow lineup of Polo shirts.
• Out.com/Stylelist, who cried "SCANDAL!"
• Shakesville, who elicited a whopping 88 comments.
Thanks for the attention, folks.
