The pins feature the Official Olympics symbol combined with a rainbow heart. Critics claim that retail stores are not displaying the items due to homophobia, while retailers claim they’re not displayed to to low demand.

Basically, the argument is who has the homophobia. Either the retailers, so they’re not selling them, or the consumers, and they’re not buying them. One would think that in 2012 this argument would be moot.
