Celine Dion and Nununu launch CELINUNUNU - Gender-Neutral Clothing for Children and What's really bugging the Conspiracy Theorists?
I am loving the strides fashion brands and inclusive celebrities are taking to promote equality. The conspiracy terrorists.. oops, "theorists" are having a field day labeling these initiatives as a covert promotion of The Gay Agenda - which is like a sounding board of hell and world's end to many of them. Tch, Tch is all we can say to them for now. Seriously some of the comments I've seen across social media are downright hideous. Which makes me believe that there is still a lot of work to be done to advocate and educate the illiterate.
What's really bugging them? These are people who do not like the concept of equality, let alone gender neutrality. They will hide behind acts of trolling, denying and abusing anything that doesn’t fit the norm of their supposed normalness. No one cares what they have to say and what they stand for any more!
Close to the heels of Abercrombie & Fitch's newly launched gender-neutral children’s clothing line called “Everybody, and, John Lewis dropping gendered labels on children's clothing.. CELINUNUNU comes across with a fresh and solid perspective on equality:
CELINUNUNU unites two forces by one voice: Fashion has the power to shape people’s minds. Inspire your children to be free and find their own individuality through clothes - https://www.celinununu.com/
Loving also, Celine's take on the partnership:
I’ve always loved nununu and what they represent. Partnering with them to encourage a dialogue of equality and possibility makes so much sense. – Céline xx…Quoting her from her Instagram : — Celine Dion (@celinedion) November 13, 2018And, my perspective on gender-neutral clothing remains supportive as always.
As gender norms continue to loosen, regardless of sexual orientation, almost everything concerning gender perception of femininity and machismo has gone into a constant state of influx and evolution and inadvertently has become an agent of change - forming a spectrum of gender dichotomy that is fluid and ever evolving.
It is unfortunate that these highly progressive stances on ditching reinforcing "gender stereotypes" have met with such regressive tirade.
There is already a sensibility of duality, plurality, androgyny, unisexualism in existence, in full force now, and in the process creating a whole new customer identity, shedding traditional stereotypes and social constructs of male and female.
I end now with this piece of simplistic wisdom:
Neutrality is becoming a crucial element in the modern liberal notion of inclusion, diversity, and equality.
