Why Is Elton John Boycotting Dolce And Gabbana Clothing? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why.  “Why is Elton John boycotting Dolce and Gabbana clothing?” you ask?  Good question. (Besides, it beats answering the question: “Why do gay guys dress better than straight guys?” Seriously? That’s a stereotype. The LGBT community doesn’t advertise it but there are some gay guys who don’t dress well.  So we hear.)

For those not up on gay gossip, according to Panorama magazine, Elton John just declared: “I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again.” Our fifth estate friend Carly Mallenbaum, of USA Today reports that the once closeted, denying singer-songwriter/pianist, along with other members of the LGBT community with whom the press doesn’t think anyone would be familiar “are using the #BoycottDolceGabbana hashtag to express outrage over what Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.”

“Dolce? Isn’t that what you pass from the left-hand side?” (Yeah, we know most of you don’t know Dolce from denim or Gabbana from gabardine. We know most of you have difficulty affording clothing from K-Mart and we sympathize and stand with you but, hey, it is Elton John here.)

So why is Elton John boycotting Dolce and Gabbana clothing? Apparently the designing duo dared express an opinion contrary to that of their own kind. The Telegraph published a translation of their controversial comment.

They said something like: “No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”

Mallenbaum adds that Dolce also said: “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 catalog.”

Gabanna added: “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.” Despite the fact that the two have dated each other, they have spoken out against same-sex marriage in the past.

Apparently, noting that same-sex marriage might be an issue with their community partially because many see it as some band-aid to the more serious issue of AIDS is not a popular opinion in the allegedly open-minded LGBT community.

Elton John took issue with their most recent statements. He posted on Instagram:

“How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic.’ And shame on you for wagging your judgemental (sic) 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 and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana.”

The AP later reported that Gabbana released a statement saying that “it was never our intention to judge other people’s choices.” Dolce added he was speaking about family based upon his own experience and noted other kinds of families are as legitimate.
