Fashion: It's London Fatuous Week

A Boy In A Dress Isn't Evil, But Size Zero Models Are
'Does Andrej Pejic modelling women's clothes truly symbolise "the ultimate rejection of the female body" by "evil" gay fashion designers?
'The image I keep seeing is of Pejic in a Jean Paul Gaultier wedding gown. The same "Crazee" JPG who'd send a unicorn down the runway if he could, who designed Madonna's ultra-femme coned bra, whose perfume bottle is woman-shaped. Is this a gay man who hates women?
'What's so shocking about a boy in a dress anyway? Marilyn did the same in the 1980s and no one had a rad-fem fit. For the true face of catwalk evil, look instead to the girl models, some so emaciated they made Samantha Cameron blench in shock.
'As for the accepted "fact" that "fashion is full of gay men who hate women"… this isn't a fact – it's snide, homophobic hogwash, offensive to the hordes of committed gay professionals in the fashion industry. If fashion has a problem (and, by Zoolander, it does), it's not covert hatred of the female, rather, it's overt worship of youth and the BMI that comes with youth. All this, and worse, could be said of fashion, but let's keep the gay-bashing out of it."

Fagburn's most favourite newspaper columnist, Barbara Ellen, tells it like it TIS in The Observer, as per.
As your faithful servant Fagburn has reported, this hackneyed old anti-gay tripe/trope - fashion is dominated by gay men and gay men hate women yada yada yada - was disinterred this week by the dreadful Glenda Slagg Amanda Platell in The Daily Mail ('Fashion's Ultimate Insult to Women'), and by the equally hopeless Richard & Judy (!) in The Daily Express ('Boys Will Be Girls').
Funny - all the gay men Fagburn knows love women; from their best friends to their heroes to their mums.
