Why Elton John is boycotting Dolce & Gabbana

Boys will be boycotts


Sir Elton John is calling on others to #BoycottDolceGabbana, Courtney Love is vowing to burn all her D&G-labelled garments, and the designers have made an excellent - and perfectly public - example of why it's so important to pay attention in biology class.

According to Attitude, the duo, who split romantically back in 2005 but continue to work together on the label, told Italian news magazine Panorama that they oppose gay adoptions, adding that "the only family is the traditional one."

"No chemical offsprings and rented uterus," they continued. "Life has a natural flow; there are things that should not be changed."

Dolce also argued that children born from egg donors or artificial insemination are "children of chemistry, synthetic children," and are made from "uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalogue." 

And that was a comment Sir Elton John could not turn the page on. 

Boycotting the boys

In an Instagram post, he wrote: "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 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"

Gabanna responded: "Fascist!!! #BoycottEltonJohn"

Courtney Love joined the conversation: "I just round up all my Dolce & Gabbana items and want to burn them. I'm just beyond words and emotions. Boycott senseless bigotry! #boycottD&G"

All we know is: You cannot make synthetic children in the same way you can make synthetic fabrics - and even if you could, all life is beautiful no matter how you slice it.
