Last week, there was a post about Jaden Smith in Hypebeast, about him starring in Louis Vuitton’s latest womenswear campaign along with models Jean Campbell, Sarah Brannon and Rianne Van Rompaey. Jaden’s knobbly knees were spread under a skirt and he further wore a see-through halter top along with a leather jacket and lampshade tassels.
His clipped dreads widely cascaded over his face while his pose was air-guitar chic. With two dainty, shiny loafers, his shoes appeared even chicer.
Meanwhile, the troll-infested comments section of Hypebeast who could probably never afford the clothing and shoes he was wearing, went totally crazy and there were stuff like “He’s skinny enough to be a bitch along with other garbage like “Even if he isn’t gay I lost a little respect for him” and—my ultimate favorite— “Man this is fruity.”
However, it seems like a lot of people thought the same and overall, Jaden’s cross-dressing sensation was considered to be rather gross by many.
However, the Hypebeast posted 10 of David Bowie’s Most Thought-Provoking Moments after his death at the age of 69; people were actually celebrating a man who was make-up and wigs in the 70s. At the same time, turning around to curse a kid for wearing a skirt in 2016 appears rather odd.
As a result of Jaden Smith’s appearance in the Louis Vuitton media campaign, he is being considered to be a sick latent homosexual who is crying out to Lord Jesus to save him. From the looks of it, he appears to have single-handedly feminized the modern man.
A lot of people are asking how the teenage movie star managed to accomplish this. From the looks of it, a lot of comments are suggesting that he made it possible by wearing a dress! Usually, we see that the word ‘man’ goes proportionately with genitalia, which are men are blessed with.
However, through generations, the definition has been broadened to include strength, sensibilities and stature. The notion of what makes a man is often tossed around by many. While answering that, the words strong, dignified and brave are chosen.
At the same time, we talk about the likes of great men and personalities like John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela among others. Now, here’s some food for thought. According to Huffington Post, would Martin Luther be considered great if he was wearing purple sweatpants?
Would Nelson Mandela be a lesser man if he was wearing a frock? Meanwhile, Huffington Post also shares the fact that Jesus himself wore a robe. Should Jesus have donned a pair of Levi’s before the second coming just in case his manhood was brought into question?
The sad part about all of it is that there are some members in our society who enjoy a rather literal and askew viewpoint of masculinity.
We have so many new options, opinions and aspects in 2016. Considering that how is it that a man is purely labeled on the kind of clothes he wears.
It is entirely ridiculous to consider a man homosexual or less of a man just because he decided to wear a dress. Sexual preferences are not at all a measure of man’s manliness. At the same time, his words and actions are.
Meanwhile, it seems like from birth, Jaden Smith and his sister Willow have marched to the beat of their own drums. From the looks of it, they are quite confident in the independence that has been instilled in them by their parents, Will and Jade-Pinkett Smith.
