This comes on heels of Target selling there Pride, Harmony, & Love t-shirts.

I don't see an issue here. Most Americans support providing right to the lbgt community...I mean, it's 2012. Let's get with the times. And these companies simply realize that they can profit off the general support that exists in America regarding gay marriage.

It was like the rock singers of the 70's doing a disco song, to cash in on the bucks.

so now the stores want to benefit from us being gay...

ok, go for it, I dont mind.

put it out there, the more people see it, the more no one is bothered by it.

Nifty. If big corporations don't fear financial repurcussions for supporting the LGBTQ community then it's really becoming mainstream and it will be easier to gain equal rights.

Go Macy's! Wish these shirts were selling at my location so that I could easily pick one up.

Smart idea for these retailers. It brings in more business from gender #3 . Makes this group of individuals know that the stores are not bias and welcome their business.

Macy's used to be my go-to store for quality clothing.

As a non gay guy, over the last several years, I've noticed a shift in the Macy's men's department that has made it a little difficult for me to find clothes that fit my style. The colors, the patterns and the cut of much of what I see is geared to the gay man. NTTIAWWT.

It just doesn't work for me. I still shop Macy's, but half the time I find nothing I want.
