It's A Givhan That She's Racist

WaPo's Robin Givhan moves from: It's OK to refuse to dress the First Family to: Ralph Lauren is possibly the nation's most bipartisan American designer, in less than two weeks.  I think that signals progression in a closed mind.

Actually, isn't she relying on those Tom and Lorenzo dudes lately?

Robin Givhan's heart is not yet filled with patriotism therefore she has room for prejudice.

How does saying it's okay to refuse to design for someone you don't like (it is okay, it's the advertising that when nobody asked that annoys) to saying some designer or another is top bipartisan (he is bipartisan) show progressivism is closed? How does saying two reasonable and correct things show a closed mind? No lo comprendo.

Givhan was duplicitous with her first column. Of course it wasn't OK (in her mind) to refuse service to certain groups. So she was actually lying in her first column. She seems to be catching on, though.

As I watch the varying degrees of physical uncomfortable yesterday as politicians walked down to their seats after being announced on the inauguration stage, I noticed how although uncomfortable w/ politics, Melania was in her expertise as a Marine escorted her down to her seat. Exquisitely poised.

I wish Donald Trump would button his suit coats.

That's a pretty minor complaint. Hardly worth mentioning but I did and maybe I'm not so crazy about what that says about me.

Anyway, I've heard-tell that the leave-the-bottom-button-unbuttoned custom started when some king (Edward?) got an appendectomy and couldn't button his bottom button for the extra girth from the bandage. Gentlemen followed suit.

Sounds like a bull story to me but you never know.

Another fashion quibble. I thought the rule was your necktie should just graze the top of your belt buckle.

Donald Trump: Just a good-looking rebel who plays by his own rules.

Is it OK to tell Hollywood leftists to eat shit?

chickelit said...

Of course it is, April. And they should be stitched together like a hunan centipede.

So let me get this straight. They are within their rights to refuse to design a dress but they would have to bake a cake?

How does that work exactly?

Look at it as a simple transaction with a buyer and a seller. When the gayness on the buyer side, the seller/artist are forced to sell; when the gayness is on the seller's side, the artist is free to snub or not to snub the buyer. In other words, by law, a gay baker need not bake a cake for a gay client.
