    A bit surprising but I've always disagreed with their taste in clothes finding them tacky and silly-looking. So no danger of inadvertently funding their soap box. But it does seem surprising that they would have so little consideration of so many gay bretherin who obviously value marriage and family. Cold.

    I've told people NOT to believe their faux homosexual inclusive ads. Their 'gay friendly' media campaigns are a farce. A crock of shit.

    D&G are undereducated fashion designers. They need to stick with making fashionable clothes, good smelling colognes, and back the f away from opining on sociological, political and legal issues regarding the LGBT community.

    Idiots. And I continue to refuse to support D&G. It's homophobia. And the fact they're gay only makes the story sadder. It's like the Dave Chappelle skit with the black and blind KKK member. Or American gay Republicans.

    I read that article and will never get those 25 seconds of my life back that I just wasted. Its clear that they are angry at gays. Their quotes are cynical, bitter and void of empathy. It's like they were angry and wanted to make a blanket criticism. "I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog."

    Normal, happy people just don't think that way... gay or straight.

    Yes, I agree. What's also interesting is that what they said also smacked every straight person that goes for in vitro, surrogacy etc when they can't conceive otherwise.

    Nevermind that gay people can adopt, or have children "naturally" from previous relationships (or one night stands).

    Their comment is so ignorant and hateful that I can't even begin to critique it except to say: Screw D&G. Bitter queens.

    Lets see, stereotypical one night stand uber gays, just because their relationship bombed, they hate on everyone else too? I cant imagine how difficult it is for them to keep their company going and get along with each other, no wonder they never got married, they would have to dissolve the company in divorce court, I would hate to be a fly on their home wall, DRAMA QUEENS icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

    P.S. I don't own and never owned D&G anything, not even underwear


    a same-sex couple until they split several years ago

    The two designers were asked if they had ever considered marrying each other.

    “What?! Never!” they answer in chorus, “I don’t believe in gay marriage.” Dolce laughs. In Catholic Italy, has their sexuality proved a problem? “No, never,” says Dolce. “The fashion industry is full of gays.”

    'The Only Family Is The Traditional One'

    dynastic, arranged-marriage families?
    multiple-wife, Old Testament families?
    20 children, with at least one wife dying families?
    wife ages prematurely from doing all the work families?
    dad earns enough to be the only one with a job families?
    father keeps a mistress families?

    Which tradition? There are so many to choose from!

    Self-loathing queens are the worst. Who knows they may both value traditional marriages where they are both wearing the gown.

    Ohhhhhh, Elton has got way more pull, with the people who can afford and buy high end D&G....


    Gabbana posted an image of John and Furnish with the caption: ‘Who wants to see him in a Dolce and Gabbana dress?’

    I just saw about this on Facebook. Although I agree with Elton John on this, I'm furious about HIM calling out D&G when he had no problem performing at Rush Limbaugh's wedding. The difference is clearly how much Elton is paid.

    * HUGE STADIUM APPLAUSE * to these geniuses, never into high fashion labels but just because of this, you got lots of new fans and customers from the majority !

    never in their statements they mentioned hatred or bigotry, ignorance ? perhaps. The truth is,truth hurts and hope they knew that there are MANY gays who agreed to their statements and hopefully this will be another start of lgbt groups who have the right to put out different opinions just like all the blind-straight-hatred, christian-hating gays did the same to their enemies and not be one of the sheeps who blindly followed their mainstream millionaire liberal turds. (not a liberal or conservative here either)

    Just because liberal media (mostly u.s) and twat celebrities blasted them on their headlines, this doesn't mean they lack thousands of supporters all over the world !

    If I have to boycott every person or brand in this world who don't agree with me, my opinions or my lifestyles...i won't even consider myself a human, too many people or products to ignore, even friends and relatives (which I never, ever will)


    Bring on the drama, boys ! icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    I'm going with Elton John on this one: Boycott D&G


    *CoolArmyDude, I see what you're saying regarding hypocrisy, but I think there's a difference between (1) merely performing for a person who is a huge fan, whose father happens to be a loud-mouthed bigot, and (2) bashing LGBT parents and in vitro fertilization children. There's a huge difference in degree, though neither 'helps' the LGBT cause admittedly.

    Dolce & Gabbana Forced To Walk Back Anti-Gay Attack

    His response is dishonest. His personal view does judge other people. To say it does not is disingenuous.

    You can't walk-back a steaming crock of shit. There's no salvaging this. It's like the Titanic, already at the bottom of the sea.
