Elton John Calls for Boycott of Dolce & Gabbana
JOHN TAKES ON DOLCE AND GABBANA:
Quote:
John did not take well to comments made by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in the Italian media about traditional families.

In particular, John was offended by the Italian designers calling children generated through IVF “synthetic.” On Sunday, the artist tweeted his response to the statements made by Dolce and Gabbana, calling for a boycott of their fashion. “How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic,’” he tweeted. “And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF — a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce & Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana,” added John, who has long been a close friend of that other Italian designer, Donatella Versace.

So not only do their clothes suck nowadays, so do they as human beings.

I see a career suicide after this. As a gay man I feel they need to shut-up and focus on creating creative collections, not the same copy-and- paste crap they have been doing since several years ago.

Children who are raised by parents of the same sex are healthier, happier and have a better relationship with their family. This is evident from the largest study ever done on the well-being of children with two mommies or two daddies.

With IVF they pick the most active sperm seed because that one is probably the best & most healthiest

+ IMO: IVF kids are mostly better looking hahaha
Look at Suri Cruise & North West

It is a very, very sensitive topic and I think it has been extremely silly of them to say something like this. Kids are kids, no matter how they were born and who their parents are. If I were Elton, I would be very offended. They knew what reaction it would cause, sometimes it is better to keep your mouth shut. Coming from a traditional family, I don't think I would like to be raised in the family where both parents are of the same gender, so the whole topic is something I could debate on, even though I try to be as open minded as I can, but I would never, ever allow myself to say that some kids are synthetic or something of that sort. There are traditional families who struggle with having children for health related or any other reasons, so they have to use less traditional methods. Do such families not deserve to have kids if they can't have them the way they are supposed to be made by nature?

Who's still buying this brand anyway tbh?

While I'm not a fan of IVF mostly because I prefer adoption, I'm not gonna go bash people who choose it. I'm certainly not gonna bash children who are a product of it, that's incredibly cruel. There's nothing wrong with them, they're still made of an average sperm and egg. To me this is almost as bad as racism, because it's like they're saying that these children are not "proper humans". On a side note, the Catholic Church is against IVF.

Also, the way they talk about homosexuality, gay marriage, and IVF sounds like they're regurgitating ideas they were taught. It doesnt sound like a conclusion they personally came to and have reasons behind. It seems like they're just told this stuff and believe it without questioning it, and it makes them sound like idiots because they it seems like they can't think for themselves. It's especially weird because they're in a same sex relationship themselves. Also considering how new this idea is of marrying freely for love...

So what? Should everyone go by studies and statistics to determine if they should become parents?

I've said it before, but these close-minded and outdated viewpoints that Domenico and Stefano are exhibiting, that contradict their very own sexualities, just make me feel so... sad. What a tragic existence to to think that you, as a human being, are not entitled to have children or get married. Like a bizarre self-imposed prison. Catholicism must hang over this duo like a powerful, all-encompassing storm cloud.

Absolutely disgusting! How dare they give such a demeaning name to these children?
First they bore us with redundant collections, cheat their country out of millions, and now spew ignorance and hate. Just abominable people.

In 2006 Stefano said.
Quote:
"My dream is to have a baby, not to adopt one because I am not up to it and I don't feel strong enough. I want my own child, a biological child, the fruit of my sperm, conceived through artificial insemination because it wouldn't make sense for me to make love to a woman I don't love. The person I love today is my partner so I am looking for a civilised and refined woman. A week ago I asked a dear friend of mine, who is twelve years younger than me, if she would help. I asked her 'Would you like to be the mother of my child ?' She was left a bit shocked and the following day telephoned and said she was still shocked but thought it was a great idea. I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents. A child needs a mother and a father. I could not imagine my childhood without my mother. I also believe that it is cruel to take a baby away from its mother."
Rambling ignoramus.

as someone raised in a stringent catholic upbringing and being from a very religious country..this is basically how catholicism works. You don't question it in these very traditional family centered societies, and you end up between your own thoughts and those of the ones you love

Huh? Like most people I too come from a "traditional" family. Of course it is difficult to imagine being raised in a different situation, but I do know that people who were raised by same sex couples or single parents usually also had very fulfilling and happy childhoods like I had. I have to ask you why you seem to suggest that a vagina and penis are required between two parents for raising a child - because that is what this argument of requiring a man and woman comes down to! I can also imagine if my parents were a same-sex version of themselves. They'd be the same people, same interests, same character, just some physical differences that are totally irrelevant to raising a child, or really anything... I think the biggest difference between men and women are certain physical characteristics, which are small compared to who we are as people.

There are mental differences between end and women because of brain and hormone differences. However, there are gay men who can be very maternal and lesbian women who can be very paternal, so it doesn't really matter what sex they are. Basically all you need is the personality associated with a male parent and a female parent, it doesn't really matter what sex that caretaker is or if there's one or two or if they're even biologically related. There are non traditional families that produce happy children, and there are traditional families that produce terrible children. You don't need a man and woman to raise a good child, just a good person with love to give

Stefano is handling the situation in a incredible, immature manner. This is definitely going to be damaging for him.

No. This is incorrect and plays into stereotypes that gay couples have "roles" each one plays, like "the woman in the relationship" and "the man." What do fraternal and maternal personalities even have to do with raising a kid? Does the maternal personality cook dinner and clean, while the fraternal teaches how to throw a ball? Which one says no to eating ice cream and which one says yes? Parents need to be able to take the kid to school and places, teach them right from wrong, help them with their school work, encourage them to participate in different activies - man or woman can do any of that and in the case of single parents, many do singlehandedly.
