Dolce & Gabbana: “The only family is the traditional one.”

Dolce & Gabbana: “The only family is the traditional one.”

In an interview with Panorama magazine, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the two men whose business partnership—and one-time romantic partnership—lies behind one of the world’s great fashion powerhouses, have declared that “The only family is the traditional one.”

“The family is not a fad,” Gabbana told the interviewer. “In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”

Procreation “must be an act of love.” Children born through artificial insemination or egg donors are “children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteruses for rent, semen chosen from a catalog,” Dolce said.

“The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow; there are things that should not be changed.”

And there was weeping and gnashing of teeth
