    I was wondering that myself...
    Would be cool if i knew how to make my own shirts...and would save a lot.

    Maybe ill research it (>_<)

    I remember when i was a kid making my own shirt...but totally forgot how i did it.

    thinking seriously about it I think these shirts are really cool.
    But I believe if it could just give players something "gay" to use in-game.
    I do not know. A mount that leaves a rainbow trail wherever it walks.
    Or a glyph. Rogues could have a smoke bomb with all the colors of the rainbow for example.

    Something like this?
    I would just remove the unicorn...might be a bit too much.

    I am always confused when people expect more then empty pandering for money from marketing... you don't really think they care do you?

    I bought some of their pride collection(love unites) clothes from adidas. Much better stuff and looks nice. What blizzard offers is lackluster indeed. But to their defense, they dont really deal with clothes

    Obviously I ordered Ashe and BoB tshirts from blizzard recently. Boy it takes time to ship over the dam

    - Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle… and wonder if we’ll ever get the chance to kill him.

    Blizzard Doesn't run the Chinese store/game There's a Chinese company as a middle man.

    The expression is "gay dollar" and refers to money that is spent by the gay community towards various things. Often it is trips, clothes, games, in-game items, cups/dishes, stuffed animals, etc etc etc that are geared towards the gay community. Its the same thing as the "black dollar" or "Latin dollar" or "Asian dollar" meaning that the target audience is specific and the advertisement is geared towards that target audience. The "gay dollar" happens to be more than the other specific groups like that because generally speaking the gay community has more expendable income because of lack of children. Keep in mind expendable income doesn't necessarily mean richer nor does it mean that everyone in the gay community has extra money to spend around but just that the overall population of the community doesn't have the responsibilities that other groups have.

    Don't buy Pride merchandise from any big business.

    There is a reason for that. Just like BMW and Mercedes Benz didn't put rainbow in their emblems on their Islamic country websites. Kinda makes you see that all they are doing is pandering to you.

    Unless the companies flag the Pride Flag in ALL countries where they operate, not just in countries where it's socially acceptable, they're just pandering for money.

    Disgusting regardless of which company does it, really.

    There are many small companies that will produce shirt/hoodie/bag/wallet/etc with ANYTHING on it for the fraction of the this price.
    Stop giving these scummy big ones money even if they present it as 'we respect X thing'.

    My favorite "pride pandering" from a company was that time I saw a t-shirt that said "there are more than two genders" and it came in male and female option.

    I wouldn't want to be caught dead in a Blizzard sweater at the best of times, so my opinion of pandering to certain groups for cheap (and utterly fake) PR doesn't exactly aleviate that. In general I don't wear "merch" where the main purpose is to be a walking advertisment that I have to pay for, that shit is so backwards it's not even funny.
    MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis.

    I'm not gay. lol.
    But you're right. I had forgotten about this TOY.
    It's already something...
    But it would be nice to have some Glyph like that. With rainbow colors or any other color we like.
    I really wish some Glyphs could change the color of the visual effects of my skills. Probably all my Hunter skills would be purple just for me to at least have the feeling of playing with a Dark Ranger (/crying)

    Ty. I have never heard anything about this before. Where I live we don't have that kind of term. Thanks for the explanation.

    Nothing says "I support X cause" more than slapping a related logo on merch and seeling it for profit.

    When will companies stop pandering to Twitter lol

    Be 'happy' with what they are offering because honestly I could care less how or who you enjoy having sex with. I don't need it flaunted in my face with symbols. You don't see t-shirts that symbolize that I like cunnilingus from Blizzard, but should I be up in arms about it because I'm not being represented? No. It doesn't matter at the end of the day. And yes, it's still against the law in most states to have oral sex, look it up.

    Also don't hit me up with what the symbol actually means or what it signifies. If you actually cared about it, you would put a picture of Stonewall Riots or something that actually signifies what took place. Maybe one of the rioters that helped in all of it. Nope, Nothing, Notta. Now it's a poor excuse to have a parade and fly the rainbow colors.
