Apparently, Jaden Smith (whom I'd never heard of till I saw this article) is the new face of Louis Vuitton womenswear. What do people think of the article? Some of the commenters think it is satire.

I'm not sure that it is satire.

To those of us who are not transgender or into transvestitism the article may seem a bit daft, especially as at our age the last thing on our minds when we get out of bed is how to tell the world what gender we are!

But that might be very important for someone who is transgender or wants to be accepted as a woman in everyday life. I have noticed that most choose to wear rather feminine and even 'fussy' clothes. Perhaps Katie Glover is worried that the Jaden Smith thing is the start of a slippery slope, in that it won't be as easy in future to proclaim one's gender by one's clothes?

A bit rich for a trans woman to complain that Jaden Smith is 'encroaching on our territory' by wearing women's clothes!

Rather a silly article.
