Stefano Gabbana (from Dolcce & Gabbana) said in an interview that he would have a child tomorrow if he could, yet Dolce said he did not feel comfortable with the possibilities gay men had for reproduction, he told Panorama magazine ”You are born and you have a father and a mother,or at least that’s the way it should be, and that’s why I’m not convinced by children from chemistry, synthetic babies, uteruses for rent, semen chosen from a catalogue.”
Elton John, who has two kids of his own conceived through IVF, reproached the designers calling a boycott of the label on Twitter saying: “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 fulfil 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.” Victoria Beckham, Ricky Martin and Courtney love were amongst the celebrities who united against the designers and their comments.
