DAAAAAAAAAYUM, GINA! The fashion icons and legends known as Dolce and Gabbana have made some rather serious proclamations regarding children born from artificial insemination, thereby alienating a LARGE chunk of the entire human freakin race.
“The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.
Dominic Dolce was specifically quoted as saying “You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog.”
Ummm… bitches? PLEASE! Your archaic, antiquated and downright asinine beliefs will land you and your worldwide brand in the muther-truckin landfill. As someone who hopes to one day enjoy the privilege of having a child of my own, whether through adoption or possibly with the help of a surrogate, I think they’re full of shit! As if any of the aforementioned methods require any less love, devotion and dedication from a parent, than having hot and sweaty sex. This is also a huge assumption on these designers that ALL conceptions are planned. I’d love to see the percentage of heterosexual parents who had intentions of having a baby against those that were surprised by the news when the woman had to pee on a teeny-tiny stick.
Sir Elton John, one who reaped the benefits of a child born from a surrogate mother, had more than a few choice words for the Dynamic Duo via his instagram page:
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. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana
Keep in mind that these two are the same drama queens that, despite their own sexual orientation have also taken a stand against same sex marriage. Not sure if this was before or after they themselves have split up their own relationship. Earlier today, Stefano Gabbana ATTEMPTED an apology:
“We firmly believe in democracy and the fundamental principle of freedom of expression that upholds it. We talked about our way of seeing reality, but it was never our intention to judge other people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love. 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 learned the values of love and family. This is the reality in which I grew up, but it does not imply that I don’t understand different ones. I was talking about my personal view, without judging other people’s choices and decisions.”
By the way, this is the same hypocrite that in 2006 had asked a friend to be a surrogate mother for his child. The designer told an Italian newspaper: “I want my own child, a biological child conceived through artificial insemination.”. My, how the mighty have fallen. Must be all that back-peddling. He probably backed right off a cliff. Other celebrities have hopped on board the #BoycottDolceGabbana train:
These designers horrifying views are never in fashion. Their clothes are as ugly as their hate. #BoycottDolceGabbana

I for one, cannot wait for their little freefall down into relative obscurity.
