Gay Designers Oppose Gay Marriage
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, founders of the eponymous fashion house, have come out strongly against gay marriage, the notion of gay families, and the use of surrogacy to procreate.
Both gay men, have raised honest concerns such as the exploitation of surrogate mothers needed to provide male couples with babies and for governments to actually legislate for children to be raised without a mother.
Same sex marriage laws are not so much about equality as inequality for anyone with alternative views. No chemical offspring and rented uterus. Life has a natural flow; there are things that cannot be changed.”
They also said, “Procreation must be an act of love.”
“I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri for rent, semen chosen from a catalogue,” Dolce stated.
Gabanna said, “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”
The pair have long been outspoken about gay marriage. In 2013, when the London Telegraph asked them if they had ever considered getting married, they answered, “What? Never!” Dolce said, “I’m a practicing Catholic.”
Gabbana told the Daily Mail in 2006, “I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents.”
For daring to express the opinion that it is cruel for children to be taken away from their mother, Gabbana and Dolce have been largely boycotted by the LGBT community.
It is not unusual for gay men in Europe to oppose gay marriage. In fact, a group of gay men in France, calling themselves Les Hommen, have been an ongoing feature of traditional marriage protests in France. Les Hommen invaded the French Open, stripped to the waist, with pro-marriage slogans written on their chests. Gay Star News suggested it was “the most homoerotic anti-gay protest ever.”
