Strange that two of the biggest designers in one of the most open and progressive industries can harbor such conservative and antiquated views. The comments they made are absurd, but I can't help but feel a pang of sadness for them. They must still have major issues with who they are, and continue to live with some pain/shame/self-loathing about their sexualities, which no doubt harkens back to their upbringing.

Well they certainly will be losing quite a number of celebrity clientele. Madge won't like this type of statement..

I agree with this... doesn't make it any less revolting, but it must be revolting for them, as well.

This is incredibily sad to read. It is true, that everyone is entitled to their opinion but gay people are the last I'd expect to make such remarks. And I agree, this will totally backfire, they will lose clients because of it. When will people start to realize that love is the most important, not the gender of a person?

Well Elton John is pissed according to The Guardian and calling for a boycott. Dang!

It is sad but coming from a Catholic upbringing myself, not surprising, ah.. f*ck up daily and then chill, open your arms to god's everything-goes forgiveness and feel the love. True magnanimity..
So yeah it is totally common to be gay but practise homophobia, to believe in marriage but have the occassional affair too, to be a mafia lord and invest on building churches...

The bad news is that these ideas are so common, even my mother (who's quite progressive) was active on gay rights, 'just don't go into adoption'. After many heated arguments over the years she's now with us in 2015. But it's common, the good news are, it's mostly an older generation and they're slowly departing. And they're taking their cliché views on fashion and womenswear too thank god.

Also, IVF is more in the realm of biological science than chemistry. As for the procreation should be an act of love, there are a lot of children who were conceived with no love at all even though it was still a natural conception, I wonder what they say about them

The way Stefano is handling the situation is beyond immature with all the stupid, parody posts about it.

D&G responds
Quote:
Dolce & Gabbana founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana say they did not mean to judge other people's choices when they criticized same-sex parenting and the method of conceiving children via artificial insemination, which sparked controversy on Sunday and a scathing response by Elton John.
The singer-songwriter, who shares two sons born to a surrogate with husband David Furnish, had said, "Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions." John's remarks included a call to boycott the luxury designer label.
Dolce said in a statement that while his own family was "traditional", that does not "imply that I don't "understand different ones," according to the U.K. newspaper The Guardian.
"I was talking about my personal view, without judging other people's choices and decisions," he added. "I'm Sicilian and I grew up in a traditional family, made up of a mother, a father and children. I am very well aware of the fact that there are other types of families and they are as legitimate as the one I've known...But in my personal experience, family had a different configuration. That is the place where I learnt the values of love and family."


Gabbana said in his own statement, "it was never our intention to judge other people's choices. We do believe in freedom and love," according to the newspaper.
"We firmly believe in democracy and the fundamental principle of freedom of expression that upholds it," he added.
Neither designer mentioned John.
Dolce and Gabanna, who used to be involved in a romantic relationship, had made their controversial comments to Italian magazine Panorama. Gabbana had called children conceived via insemination, a method used by both same-sex pairs and heterosexual couples, "synthetic."
He added, "The only family is the traditional one," while his business partner commented, "Life has its natural course, there are things that must not be changed. And one of these is the family"
John's call to boycott Dolce & Gabbana drew support from several celebrities, including fellow gay parentsRyan Murphy and Ricky Martin as well as Sharon Stone, a mother of three adopted sons.

Please comment there from now on (just to avoid double-talk).

Thank you
