So much for 'Je suis Charlie'...

Italian stylists Dolce & Gabbana (who are also a well known gay couple) in an interview voice their support to the concept of 'natural family' (meaning a man, a woman and child(ren) ) and their disagreement with practices like surrogate maternity (which, by the way, is illegal in Italy) in a very sedate, reasoned way, with no hint of condemnation, name-calling or finger-pointing ('When you are born you have a father and a mother...') and the net erupts in outrage with calls to boycott.

Evidently freedom of expression doesn't apply equally to everybody, I can't really say I'm surprised.
