Dolce and Gabbana

Aging singer/songwriter Elton John is calling for a worldwide boycott of openly gay clothing designers Dolce and Gabbana. The openly gay father-of-two who is “married” to his longtime partner, David Furnish, was incensed when he heard about Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce’s definition of a traditional family.

Dolce and Gabbana

Dolce and Gabbana promoted traditional families and criticized gay adoptions via surrogate mothers and what they called “synthetic children” grown in laboratory test tubes.

“We oppose gay adoptions,” said Dolce and Gabbana. “The only family is the traditional one.”

Elton and Furnish have two children who were born via surrogate mothers. Neither child has ever known their biological mothers.

Dolce and Gabbana, who once considered using a surrogate themselves, said children should never be deprived of a mother.

“You are born to a mother and a father – or at least that’s how it should be,” Dolce said in the interview. “I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalogue.”

Elton threw a hissy fit on his Instagram page on Saturday in response to Dolce and Gabbana’s interview with Panorama magazine.

“How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic’. And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF – a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children.” He signed off with: “#BoycottDolceGabbana”

Dolce and Gabbana seemed to walk back their comments in a statement on Sunday, saying their opinions on traditional marriage and families “weren’t intended to judge the choices made by others.”

Dolce said “it was never our intention to judge other people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love.”

But on Monday, Gabbana called for a boycott of Elton on his Instagram page.

In a post Monday Gabbana shouted “Fascist!” and took direct aim at the singer: “#boycotteltonjohn”. On his Instagram account, as you might expect, there was quite a lot of support for his criticism of Elton John among the hundreds of comments. Polina Yaguzhinskaya says: “We live in a free world and if Stefano wants [to] express his personal opinion it’s his right. So just mind your own business.” Source

      -I’m so mad at myself for not doing any work this weekend but I needed the mental break 🙁
      – I agree with the suggestions on the plus-tween clothes. My only gripe with ON is their fit. The pants always made me feel weird and bunchy (I have hips)
      – Blanche, I’m not gonna lie- I looked up that person last night after writing you :shocked: I still don’t think they should crucify her but dayyyyymmmm. I didn’t know all of that happened. I can’t exactly remember when I s tarted following her but I know it was a great bit of time before she started juicing. Reading about her journey actually made me look further into doing it for myself. And you’re right, why should a person keep apologizing for **** that happened so long ago when the victim has forgiven them.

    • Blanche Devereaux

      There are a couple things that confuse me about their stance…

      So…straight couples that use IVF, are they against that too?

      I already told yall my mom is a lesbian and I look at her partner as my parent because she DID parent me. Sometimes more than my biological parents :shrug: but she earned that love and respect from me and I obviously knew/had a dad too.

    • Mother Of Dragons, The Next Supreme (proud nerd)

      Yeah, I will not be boycotting them based on this. As a matter of fact let me go see if they have anything I like :pc: I’m glad they stated their opinion and I’m tired of gay people trying to demonize everyone that doesn’t agree with them, even other gay people. Just because a person doesn’t ascribe to your belief system doesn’t make them wrong or bigots. Children DO need mothers and fathers ideally.

I respect a person that can say what they did. Put it all on front street and still walk tall. Folks swear they are perfect.

      You are a gay designer and you said THAT :huh: I know wonderful people who have used IVF. I think that part of the statement is wrong. I can see a gay couple adopting a child who is already here but I personally don’t understand them getting a surrogate and creating a child. If God wanted two men and two women to have a child, he would have made it possible. And Elton John is too old to be anybody daddy.

      They said it was taken out of context. They didn’t say IVF is wrong period. They criticized gay people doing it and cutting the other parent completely out.

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybcNSoh8vI4 VDot

      but force that ish on people that don’t agree with it.
      ^^^^^^^^^

      When people say they are forcing the gay agenda on them, what does that mean? Serious question. Because honestly in my mind, they’re doing the same thing I’m doing, living their lives out loud and without shame. Is it that people prefer they hide being gay? Don’t be a family in public? Don’t love on one another in public? I don’t get it :no:

    • http://Scam-Or-Nah.com KiMi0414

      @Vdot I’m talking about the people that go ham on people that don’t agree with their lifestyle. Like the gay extremeists that think if you don’t agree with everything they do, then you’re the scum of the earth. The people that go hard to change the way conservative republicans think knowing good and well it won’t happen.

      Millions of children are raised in households with women. But two men raising children without a mother is not ideal. Children need to see how both sexes interact in the home in order to develop a healthy respect for women.

      There is no gay agenda. People are no more gay or experimental than they ever were :no: These folks say I’m gay and I’m proud and play with it, :buttshake: And people don’t like that. BUT, they can’t make people like or accept it or them.

      Do ya’ll think that we should go back to “Don’t ask, Dont tell?”
      I personally don’t care…..

    • iWasteTime

      Their comments had nothing to do with traditional marriage since both are Le ghey. It was about how babies are made and it was ignorant. Not only same sex couples use those methods to have a child.

      I will say that I can’t stand when a person is deceitful in their sexual preference. I.e. The transgenders and homosexuals who chooses to trick an unsuspecting person. I just saw a rerun of Cat-Fish where the girl said she preyed on hetero women. I’m still mad at the victim thinking that she (the fisher) was Bow-Wow :sideeye:

      …………………….

      Most people that are gay don’t walk around with a big flashing sign. But is obvious in a couple or family setting its obvious and thats when people get to acting funny. I’ve seen it, I’ve felt it.
