Have Stefano Gabbana and Dolce Domenico finally realized the error of their ways?!
On Wednesday, the fashion designers
backpedaled clarified their comments on In Vitro Fertilization and same-sex parenting.
What’s interesting about the CNN interview is while they never specifically apologize for their views, the ex-couple DOES admit better words could’ve been used.
When asked about his feelings on IVF today, Gabbana said:
“Yeah, I don’t have anything bad, because the beauty of the world is freedom. We love gay couple. We are gay. We love gay couple. We love gay adoption. We love everything. It’s just an express of my private point of view.”
Hmm. It’s difficult to believe Stefano’s sentiment when you consider all of the disparaging views the designer has made about LGBT families over the years.
Dolce was less flexible about his views on the “synthetic” children of LGBT parents, explaining:
“I believe in the traditional family. It is impossible to change my culture for something different. It’s me…I respect all the world, all the culture. Every people has freedom for choosing what they want. This for me is democracy. I respect you because you choose what you want. I respect me because I choose what I want…This just my point of private view.”
Essentially, Domenico is not apologizing for his offensive comments… he’s simply saying he believes what he believes and that’s not going change.
Gabbana elaborated on the popular #boycottDolce&Gabbana trend:
“Boycott Dolce & Gabbana for what? They don’t think like you? This is correct? This is not correct. We are in 2015. This is like medieval. It’s not correct.”
Huh, some might argue that the Italians’ original comments are “medieval”!
Well, it looks like D&G are not budging on their stance.
So, are YOU content with the designers’ response?
