Boys can be girls: what we learned from Paris men’s fashion week 2018
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: The Bible tells us that God created first the man, then He created the woman from the man so the two could be physically, romantically and spiritually connected to each other. It is God who created human love, and created the physical pleasures of sex within the bonds of marriage as His gift to us. The Devil, of course, hates everything that God creates, and that’s why in our day the greatest attack is coming not on the family so much as it is on the very existence of the two genders created by God. It is not ‘hate speech’ to say that God never created a transgender, never created a homosexual, and never created any one of the dozens of mind-numbing gender pronouns being forced upon us by the militant LGBTQ+ in 2018. So if God didn’t create these things, who did? Well, it’s called the ‘pride movement‘ for a reason. The Bible talks about a ‘father of pride’ who has ‘children of pride’ in Job 41. They use a 6 color rainbow for a reason, 6 is the number associated with God’s greatest enemy in Revelation 13. The rainbow God created has 7 colors. What is pride? It’s the original sin.
“He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.” Job 41:34 (KJV)
As Paris men’s fashion week comes to an end Sunday we look at four things we learned from a packed and at times emotional six days:
Men don’t have to be men
The pressure is off, boys. Dress like you did when you were a kid raiding your mother’s wardrobe. That seems to be the big message from a fashion week where the gender lines have never been more blurred.
We have had men in dresses aplenty before on the Paris catwalk but never has the male wardrobe itself been so comprehensively feminised. Blur’s “Girls & Boys” could have been the soundtrack for a week where genderless meant men borrowing all the best bits from the girls to sex up suits, shirts and trousers.
Margiela’s John Galliano said the time had come to “liberate” men from their sartorial shackles.
For him that meant silks and satins, daring to be “louche” by going shirtless under a suit, and most of all wearing clothes cut on the bias — the technique he has used for years to make his clothes for women so fluid and sensual.
“Gender doesn’t matter any more — it’s 2018,” Kim Jones told AFP before his triumphant debut at Dior Homme where he showed a transparent organza and tulle shirt embroidered with tiny, delicate white feathers.
Flowers and floral toile de Jouy blossomed out of a long run of other pieces, “but it is still menswear,” he insisted. Loewe used not a little humour to herald fashion’s rebirthing of man, opening its presentation with a naked young man sitting on a chair sauvely fingering his trumpet.

Naturally in such circumstances, pink — once the “boy’s colour” before it was supplanted by butch blue in the 1940s — was in full blush. From Dior’s pale pink double breasted suits and trench coats to Thom Browne’s Vichy check and bubblegum pink lobstar coats and the old rose of timeless Hermes, the colour threw its puff powder hue everywhere.
Vuitton’s Jones said it was time to bury the old wussy prejudices. “In LA kids in the street wear pink all the time. So it’s not, ‘Oh it’s pink, I won’t wear it’, anymore,” he added.
Fellow Briton Paul Smith agreed, sending out borderline violet DB jackets Sunday, while Lanvin also flirted with floral and silky pinks. Purist, restrained Valentino even used it for its logo while Raf Simons celebrated its gender-bending New Romantic glamour in fuschia satin coats and scarves. source

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,621 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,600 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
