Marc Jacobs just released his own, slightly more targeted take on American Apparel's "Legalize Gay" t-shirts. While anyone can wear the AA shirts, the ones at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Accessories store on Bleecker make the most sense if the wearer is actually gay, since they're printed with the message "I pay my taxes, I want my RIGHTS!"

One tee simply displays the words in handwritten script; the other weaves them around a very chic lesbian couple sitting with their equally chic daughter. The shirts go for $24, which isn't that much more expensive than the American Apparel version, and a store manager tells the Cut that they've been selling since they arrived in the shop on Wednesday.
