Vogue apologized for ‘gender fluid’ claims, but Miss Fame just went off on them anyway

‘It’s an insult to my community’

“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Gigi Hadid asked Zayn Malik last week in an interview for US Vogue’s August issue.

“I like that shirt,” he replied, “And if it’s tight on me, so what? It doesn’t matter if it was made for a girl.”

Hadid agreed, saying, “Totally. It’s not about gender. It’s about, like, shapes. And what feels good on you that day.

“And anyway, it’s fun to experiment.”

And everyone on the internet lost their goddamn mind

Rightfully.

On Friday, a Vogue spokeswoman issued a statement

“The story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture.

“We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit – we missed the mark.

“We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity.”

But Miss Fame — season 7 of RuPaul‘s Drag Race — was having none of it

“I am gender fluid and I live it”

“For Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik to wear opposing gender assigned patterns and cuts does not equate to gender fluid,” Miss Fame writes, “I am gender fluid and I live it.”

‘An insult to my community’

‘We are fighting to have a spot in these industries’

‘We will be seen’

So yeah Vogue, you did “miss the mark.” Maybe next time try reaching out to actual gender fluid models, because it’s not about “like, shapes.”
