People are upset with Vogue for a “gender fluidity” photo shoot and article that involved Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik. The piece touched on the couple sharing each other’s clothes and how this represented gender fluidity.
So, you would assume people were upset because, “Why would Vogue do such a ridiculous article? It only encourages the mental instability,” right? Nope. People are upset because it it not correct portray what they see as gender fluid.
Fox News reports:
In an interview with the publication, Hadid and Malik playfully talk about borrowing each other’s clothes, which led to the magazine titling their piece, “Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are part of a new generation embracing gender fluidity.”
“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Hadid says in the article. “Yeah, but same,” replies Malik. “What was that T-shirt I borrowed the other day?”
Vogue readers quickly took to social to voice their concerns over the piece, calling the magazine out for not featuring real people who identify as non-binary or gender-fluid. “Think Vogue is a bit confused on what gender fluidity is! Wearing your gf’s T-shirt does not make you gender fluid,” wrote one Twitter user.
However, after being slammed on social media, the magazine offered a public apology:
A Vogue spokesperson stated, “The story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture,” she continued “We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit we missed the mark.”
Vogue added, “We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity.”
How about they just focus on fashion and makeup, like they advertise, and leave mental disorders out of it! Stop encouraging these people!
