Why Jaden Smith as the face of LV womenswear is threatening transgender territory
So, it’s been announced that 17-year-old Jaden Smith, son of American actor Will Smith, is to be the new face of Louis Vuitton clothes. To be more specific, the womenswear section. And I didn’t even know they had an old face – clearly I’m out of the fashion loop. But what a great publicity stunt for Louis Vuitton. So many people thought their fashion offerings were confined to handbags – whoever knew that they were actually selling womenswear for men?
So y’all know that I am up in this conversation, but this might actually be the most loony tunes thing I have EVER read. EVER. I do not understand how this “movement” has not already been completely discredited.
I do not understand how anyone who has even the most rudimentary ideas of feminism are not appalled by this.
I do not understand how this is not read by any person with five brains cells as insanely misogynist and woman hating.
Plus this ish:
When you get out of bed in the morning the most important thing you have to do all day is tell the world what your gender is, because from that, everything else flows. You may think that your job is to be an office supervisor or a stockbroker or police officer but these are all human constructs. Deep down your real job is to reproduce, and showing other humans your gender is the first step on that path.
This is straight up the definition of sexism. To reduce life to telling the world your gender so you can have babies. That is straight up what women have fought for millenia. And this is what this jackalope is calling liberation. Do you see how this sort of “activism” is incompatible with feminism?
I just cannot.
