People are Upset Over Zayn and Gigi Hadid's Cover

So I was cruising the interwebs when I found this little gem today on Buzzfeed...

Now I have no idea what any of that stuff in the title means but I saw "Really Pissing People Off" and I was immediately hooked. So I did some digging and this is what is getting to people...

This new blasé attitude toward gender codes marks a radical break. Consider the scene one recent morning out in Montauk, New York, where the photos accompanying this story were shot: Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik snuggle in interchangeable tracksuits as, nearby, Hadid’s younger brother, Anwar, rocks back and forth on a tire swing, his sheer lace top exposing scattered tattoos.

For these millennials, at least, descriptives like boy or girl rank pretty low on the list of important qualities—and the way they dress reflects that.“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Hadid, 22, flicks a lock of dyed-green hair out of her boyfriend’s eyes as she poses the question.“Yeah, but same,” replies Malik, 24. “What was that T-shirt I borrowed the other day?”“The Anna Sui?” asks Hadid.“Yeah,” Malik says. “I like that shirt. And if it’s tight on me, so what? It doesn’t matter if it was made for a girl.”Hadid nods vigorously. “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. . . .”

So based on that excerpt from Vogue, I gathered that people are upset with the fact that they used a hetero couple sharing clothes as a way to showcase gender fluidity. Now like I said, I don't really know how all that stuff works, but I'm just here for the shade. And that's where Twitter comes in!


And my favorite one...

Long live the internet!
