Gay Designers Bash Gay Parents, Grounds for Boycott? [POLL]
If you've been anywhere near Twitter (or anyone who has today) you know that there's a HUGE feud going on between iconic singer Elton John and the famous clothing designers Dolce & Gabbana. In an interview with Italy's Panorama Magazine, the designers basically dissed gay families and families who use IVF saying:
- "We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one."
- "You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that's how it should be," Dolce said. "I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog."
- Gabbana: "The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging."
Elton John took to Instagram and Twitter to publicly respond to Dolce & Gabbana's comments:
I'm sure any parent would react to someone calling their child "synthetic" in as strong a manner, but Elton is calling for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana and started the hash tag #BoycottDolceGabbana.
Do you think this is a reasonable response, or is a boycott ridiculous? Do boycotts matter? Are you more likely to buy or not buy from a company based on the views of their higher-ups, or does that not sway your decision either way? Sound off on our poll!
