Dolce & Gabbana Don't Want Gay Couples to Have Children Together

Two of the most famous gay men in the world are making a ruckus by voicing their very anti-gay opinions this week. Italian fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana said that they don't believe gay couples should have children, and that only traditional families count at families.

Come again, now?

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are both gay themselves, and were even lovers at one point, but they don't believe in gay rights. They told Panorama, Italy's most influential news magazine, "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."

The famous pair have also gone on record as being against gay marriage, but this time they really went after gay couples who decide to procreate in a non-traditional fashion.

Dolce said procreation "must be an act of love," according to a translation by the site The New Civil Rights Movement. "I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog."

Synthetic children? It doesn't matter how the heck they're brought into being, they are just as human as anyone else on the planet. It doesn't matter if they were conceived in a test tube or the backseat of a 16-year-old's car, or on a couple's wedding night. They're 100 percent human children -- nothing synthetic about them at all.

No word on if they have problems with infertile heterosexual couples getting they help they need in order to have the children they're so desperate for. Or are those "designer" babies just as synthetic?

Gabbana continued, "The family is not a fad ... In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging."

Interestingly, the design duo made mothers the focus of their Winter 2016 collection, and even sent models with babies down the runway in Milan earlier this month. Some of the clothes included sweaters that read "I love you, mamma," and "Per la mamma più bella del mondo" (for the most beautiful mother in the world).

Well, I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even if it turns out to be the last thing anyone expected it to be. It will be interesting to see if the Hollywood set decides to stop wearing their clothes in protest or not, and if they do, will D&G change their tune?

Do you think it's wrong to use fertility treatments to help gay couples have children?
