gay

While they are know-it-alls in fashion, they leave something to be desired as social theorists!

After giving an interview which states that they are the adoption of children by gay parents and that life has its natural flow, and disregarding any other ways to generate a child, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have been the target of criticism. In the meantime there is nothing wrong with giving your opinion about his philosophy of life and how they live. They can do and live as they want and their opinion should be respected, and should be understood as their right to exercise freedom of expression. The problem is when you are said to be against something, you are support taking away the rights of others who are in favor, and more so in this case as it is complex.
Take for example the first sentence: “I’m Stefano against the adoption of children by same-sex parents,” and the second sentence: “I, Stefano Gabbana will not adopt a child because to me a child needs a mother figure and father, as in a traditional family.” They will see the difference from the last sentence where you refer to yourself in your personal and intimate level, because a person has every right to express themselves and have an opinion. The first sentence is not the same when you say you are against something apparently it seems that you are directing your statement against persons who do so already and is not just a private opinion. Artists in general are very good at singing, dancing, designing clothes, or doing super movies, but when it comes to expressing opinions or philosophies of life people are generally unhappy with their comments. They may not know how to say things in a meaningful way, or they simply lack information for understanding life in general.
In this case, I believe that the designers did not know whether it was right to express their beliefs on a personal level, because even if they were as traditional as they say, they would not be gay. I believe that they are not enough informed about the new structures of families when they speak of natural flow of life. We could say that being gay is not in accordance with nature and will cite democracy which is a way to govern, and could have you only limited to talk about the right to freedom of expression and this would suffice. At the end of the interview Domenico states that he cannot have children because he is gay, and to say this I hope he has had a vasectomy. Otherwise this becomes more unfortunate because his comments are without logic.
Dolce & Gabbana are and will continue to be great designers and are also my favorite. I had the opportunity to meet with Stefano at the Hotel Santa Paula in Granada, Spain, and gave him presents of things typical of the city, and later I received a postcard of thanks. I hope that people who are public and have access to media stop and think before they speak, because their opinions can influence the ways of others.
I was once told that having money was bad and that rich people are the most lonely people. My thought was immediately that money is not bad, it all depends on what you do with it. Most of the time people with much money do not realize the real world in which they live, and how fortunate they are of all the people in the world. We are at about 7,500 billion people in the world, and not all can have access to everything. The planet is unable to provide a computer and a phone for everyone, and many people are consuming and producing little, and this production is not enough in return.
In a smaller context, when people make such comments like this, maybe these people do not realize the millions of children living without families, on the streets or without support in orphanages, waiting for someone, be they gay, old, women, men or who want to give them an opportunity, a home to live, because we live in a world where not everyone has the same opportunities. As Dolce & Gabbana these people need to think more and try to be honest with themselves and their realities, and how as designers after this controversy they become more popular not because of their way to make fashion but for your family’s vision.

Después de dar una entrevista donde afirma estar contra la adopción de niños por padres gays y que la vida tiene su flujo natural, descartando cualquier otra forma de traer niños al mundo, los diseñadores Stefano Gabbana y Dominico son blanco de criticas. Pero dar su opinión sobre su filosofía de vida y su forma de vivir, no tiene nada de malo. Pueden hacer y vivir como quieran y su opinión debe ser respetada, hasta ahí todo claro así como su derecho de ejercer su libertad de expresión, el problema es cuando dicen: Estar en contra, eso va contra el derecho de otras personas que están a favor. Primera Frase: ” Yo Steffano estoy en contra de la adopción de niños por padres del mismo sexo”. Segunda frase: ” yo Steffano no adoptaría un niño, pues para mi precisa de una figura paterna y materna, como una familia tradicional. Se percibe la diferencia de la ultima frase? Usted se refiere a usted mismo en su ámbito personal y a su propia persona, porque tiene todo el derecho de expresarse y tener una opinión, pero cuando afirma estar en contra, parece que esta yendo contra las personas que lo hacen, entonces ya no es una opinión privada. Los artistas en general, son muy buenos cantando, bailando, diseñando ropas o haciendo súper filmes, pero cuando se trata de decir su opinión o filosofía de la vida, generalmente son infelices en sus comentarios, o porque no lo dicen de una manera comprensible, o por falta de información o entendimiento de la vida en general.
En este caso creo que Dolce & Gabbana fallo un poco como persona por esa posición infeliz ante la vida, incluso porque si ellos fuesen tan tradicionales como dicen, no serian Gays, ellos hablan del flujo natural, entonces podemos decir que ser gay no esta de acuerdo con la naturaleza, hablan de democracia que es una forma de gobierno, podrían haberse limitado solamente a decir sobre el derecho de libertad de expresión y seria suficiente. Al fina Domenico afirma que no puede tener hijos porque es Gay, para decir eso espero que se haya hecho la vasectomía, de lo contrario seria otro comentario inacertado trata do de arreglar el primero.
Dolce & Gabbana son y van a continuar siendo grandes diseñadores y mis preferidos, tuve la oportunidad de encontrarme con Stefano en el hotel Santa Paula en Granada España,y regalarle cosas típicas de España y recibí como agradecimiento una tarjeta postal. Espero que las personas que son públicas y tienen acceso a los medios de comunicación, piensen antes de hablar ya que sus opiniones pueden influir en muchas personas.
Me dijeron una vez que tener dinero era malo y hacia a las personas mas solitarias, mi respuesta fue inmediata, el dinero no es malo, todo depende de lo que haga con el. La mayoría de las veces, las personas con mucho dinero, no se dan cuenta del verdadero mundo en que viven y que afortunadas son en comparación con la mayoría de las personas del mundo. Estamos 7.500millones de personas, pero solo algunas tienen acceso a todo, el planeta no tiene recursos para dar un teléfono y computadora a cada uno de sus habitantes, son muchas las personas consumiendo y pocas produciendo, y esa producción no es suficiente. En un ámbito mas pequeño, cuando las personas hacen estos comentarios, tal vez no se dan cuenta de los millones de niños que viven sin familias, en las calles o en orfanatos sin apoyo, esperando por alguien, ya sean gays, viejos, jóvenes o cualquiera que quiera darles una oportunidad, un hogar para vivir, pues vivimos en un mundo donde no todos tienen lad mismas oportunidades.
Personas como como Dolce & Gabbana precisan reflexionar mas e intentar ser sinceros con ellos mismos y sus realidades y como diseñadores van a continuar siendo unos de mis preferidos.
