Acne Studios

Acne Studios has confirmed rumors that the model who embodies the "ideal woman" is in fact a 12-year-old boy.

Frasse Johansson is the petite model seen teetering on high heels while wearing a $1,200 coat and $400 shades in Acne's forthcoming campaign.

Yahoo Style's senior editor Leeann Duggar thinks Acne went too far:

Sometimes, you know in your heart of hearts that something terrible is true. And yet, you still reserve the right to be annoyed when it’s actually confirmed before your eyes.

Today, we see proof of the old saw that, for fashion designers, the ideal woman’s body is, in fact, that of a pre-pubescent boy. WWD announced that the forthcoming fall campaign by fashion-forward Swedish brand Acne Studios will star Frasse Johansson, who is a 12-year-old boy.

Who is modeling very expensive clothes meant for adult women.

“Walking in high heels is so hard,” Johansson told WWD. “I don’t understand how anyone can walk in them.” Welcome to the patriarchy, kiddo, enjoy your blissfully brief stay.

    This for @Boot. We was just tambout this!!! This is TODAY. A few minutes ago. One every 3 or so months here!

    Two North Carolina brothers, wrongly convicted of raping and killing an 11-year-old in 1983, have each been awarded $750,000. The state has additionally been ordered to pay for the men to receive educational opportunities. Henry McCollum, 51, and his half-brother Leon Brown, 47, were pardoned by Governor Pat McCrory in June. New DNA evidence cleared the brothers and pointed to another man.

    "I wish my mom we here. I lost my mom in 2013 and then I got out in 2014," said McCollum. "She never got to see both of her sons walking free."

    How can a 12 year old be the ideal woman even if it was a girl? Folks need to go on & that kid should be playing in gym class somewhere.

    "Today, we see proof of the old saw that, for fashion designers, the ideal woman’s body is, in fact, that of a pre-pubescent boy."

    No Shade, but that what; the designers are into...They like being with little boys, so that's what they find attracted to.

    This my opinion, if you don't like you want be the first. By the end of this post. Who knows what I will say. I've just mixed my first drink.

I am dead serious.... beat him so blasted bad he won't want no more of that prepubescent puss..... then i'd chain myself to my daughter the only break she getting from me is when she's at school and i'm calling every day to check make sure she still there... she wouldn't be able to breath....

  • PettyEyezPrime

  • eljjai

    I've been saying the exact thing for years. The ideal woman for gay the gay white men who run the womens fashion world is a 12 year old boy.

    I even heard straight white guys say the want chick with a tight little ass like that of a 12 yr old boy.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    My mother has been saying this for years...

  • MissHarlem

    Even with the dumb ass shades this looks like a child to which I say ? I don't like Lil girls dressing grown far less a sissy in training. Piss poor parents. No dollar is greater than my child ?

  • Jusstlookn2

    Loves my Sallys, but what straight guy talking yeah man...Yes, give me a women that looks like a 12 year boy. grabbing his nut sac.

    Where they do that at?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I didn't even think about it but there is definitely an element of pedophilia...

  • Jusstlookn2

    Calling Whang to the dance floor, this is crazy.

    I worked on the McCollum case, they were awarded the money months ago
    and still haven't received it. The Gov didn't want to sign off on the
    money till we decided to throw a huge rally in NC, that he finally
    decided to sign. But they are taking months to give them their bread.
    And yes 750k is no where near enough, thats why we are setting up a
    lawsuit now for more..

    Maybe he's already gay.

    Chile. My niece almost got some fool monkey stomped. She was about 15-16. Her and my nephew was at the store. They cousins but more like sibs. Some OLD azz man pure followed her out the store. She was going to car. Nephew was paying for the stuff. But SAW man follow her out. Asked for her number. Instead of keeping it stepping, she STOP and was like no. I'm not allowed to date. Etc. My nephew came back heated? "I almost went to gel. Twice! I done pushed the man and snatched HER azz up I thought I broke her arm."

  • Jusstlookn2

  • Jusstlookn2

    My granny and mama had me so scared I was 20++ before I was even thinking about it and then I was like I better call them to see if this is okay. I got through that stage...Thankfully

  • Junkanoo

    I got nothing for this one, doesn't make much in the way of sense. Why not use women to model clothes to women who are buying the clothes. If I had to dig deeper we are spirit first above ethnicity ,class ,religion or gender.

  • VDot

    New post! Teyana and Baby Iman Jr.

  • jussaying

    I love Acne's leather jackets. But yeah this is ridiculous. Worst than when Victoria's Secret used to let girls as young as 14 model their lingerie.

  • jussaying

    Lmao you leave my Macaulay out of this. He is busy smoking his crack and taking his meth whilst playing his guitar with his band ok ?

    I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    Based on the photo, there is nothing overtly sexual or woefully inappropriate about the visual, unless you believe in the strict adherence to gender roles.

    The world of fashion, like art, is about pushing boundaries. Maybe this ad was a deliberate and calculated move to get people talking about this brand, which apparently worked.

    In my opinion, a purse and high heels aren't the worse things a little boy could wear and just because he's playing dress up in expensive women's clothes, doesn't mean it's going to turn him gay.

    However... as a father, I would never allow my child to participate in anything that might be deemed controversial or potentially harmful to his or her psychological well-being.

    A parent's job is to provide a sense of stability and normalcy for their children.

  • Zizzle

    How could anyone not know that's a little boy?

  • Tammie Reed

    WHERE is his damn parents and who in their right mind approved this travesty? Lawd!

    No. That is the upsetting part

  • MsVAllDay

    Where is his daddy? Why is he letting his son dress up like a lady. Clearly there is a lack of parenting going on here.

    So you claim you're a man and a father, but a few posts ago you were just talking about men (I forget who) being fine. #thingsthatmakeyagohmm

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This is nothing new. They called this one model too fat, and her boobs we too big. She clearly was thin, but not thin enough. They love bobble-heads!

    I'm gay. I'm not a father. I used a poor choice of words. I meant, that if I were a father....

    I hope this clears up your confusion. By the way, did you know that there are gay biological fathers out there? ?

  • Canary Red™

    Hey JL?

    I was looking for her too....?

  • Queen Negus

    I finally have to agree with you. The world of fashion is pushing boundaries by getting people's attention. I stated earlier bad publicity =great advertisement. They want people's attention in which some may or may not purchase their products.

  • Queen Negus

    Nothing is wrong with being gay and I enjoy your uplifting and joyful posts ?

  • Queen Negus

    Yes they been overcharging us like we didn't know. Sallie Mae is refunding folks. It took the Govt to act on something we already know AND they changed their name

  • Petty_boots

    Damn, too bad my loan is federally subsidized by William stafford ? I never win. And it's funny they changed their name yet are being sued and allowed to keep operating the same scheme.

    Sometimes, it isn't enough to be talented. Sometimes, you need a gimmick to get noticed.
    Anita Baker is a brilliant singer, but she said when she started singing in clubs, some people wouldn't pay attention while she was performing. So, to hold her audience's attention, she started rocking and twirling her skirt.

    Maybe that boy's father put him in high heels and women's clothes to get our attention. Maybe his son is into wearing female clothing and his father decided to include him in his ads.

    Personally, I would never do that to my child. I wouldn't encourage my child to do something that might subject him or her to ridicule.

  • Bonny

    That will just push her closer.

    If that was my sister. That nigga would def be dealt with.
