High fashion used to be about battling bad taste, not trumping testosterone. But this has changed further with fashion leader Gucci’s 2020 men’s clothing line, whose goal is to battle “patriarchy” and “macho virility” while advancing a “childhood theme” that some view as uncomfortably pedophilic.
Paper magazine reports that it was five years ago that Gucci’s then-new creative director Alessandro Michele created a fashion line ushering in “a new era of gender fluidity and romanticism.” Now he has gone where no woke, low-T soy boy designer has gone before, with clothing that purportedly captures the “purity of childhood, back when carefree days weren’t tainted by societal norms, particularly those relating to masculine ideals,” Paper tells us.
Boy - Ideals - Girls - School - Constructs
Then, what normal boy doesn’t exhibit “masculine ideals”? Girls were the “other” or icky in grade school, and we boys certainly knew we were different and wanted to be masculine. That this reflects mere social constructs you could argue — unsuccessfully, since not only age-old wisdom but also new science shows that the sexes are different womb to tomb. But it’s laughable fantasy claiming there was a time when kids were untouched by these norms.
Gucci’s Michele is all-in on the fantasy, however, making clear while showing off his new line at a recent Milan show that he’s the wokest wokester there is. “‘In a patriarchal society, masculine gender identity is often moulded by violently toxic stereotypes,’ read the show notes,” Paper informs.
Masculinity - Model - Babies - Birth - Attitudes
“A dominant, winning, oppressive masculinity model is imposed on babies at birth. Attitudes, languages and actions end up progressively conforming to a macho virility ideal that removes vulnerability and dependence. Any possible reference to femininity is aggressively banned, as it is considered a threat against the complete affirmation of a masculine prototype that allows no divergencies.” And thus spake Gucci.
Of course, why even speak of...
