    Marc Jacobs Stumps for Gay Rights

    "Gay Rights" is the new "Hope," with Marc Jacobs' new T-shirts campaigning for the cause and selling like crazy.

    The message is direct: "I Pay My Taxes, I Want My Rights." And Marc Jacobs has created a limited-edition batch of 200 tees emblazoned with the slogan to campaign for gay rights legislation. Not surprisingly, the tees (at $24 a pop) are selling like hot cakes in NYC -- in fact, we're taking bets on how quickly one makes an appearance on a high-profile celeb.

    Our one gripe, though, is the limited audience for the shirts -- perhaps we might implore Mr. Jacobs to make a hetero version so we can help spread the love?
