REBEL NEWS – This year, allegedly in celebration of Mother’s Day, clothing and lingerie brand Calvin Klein launched an ad campaign featuring Roberto Bete, a pregnant trans man, and their partner, Erica Feeha, a transgender woman.
Calvin Klein’s Instagram post which launched the campaign paid “tribute” to mothers and women everywhere by including a diverse carousel of images portraying the different aspects of motherhood.
The Instagram post includes an unscientific quote from Roberto stating “we can reproduce biologically or from the heart…our role in the world is to love and be loved.” Yikes.
Apparently, the campaign was received well on Instagram, garnering more than 30,000 likes and over 1,800 comments.
However, there has also been some backlash on Twitter:
We have a huge baby formula shortage! The Left says men are the root of all problems, so it's only fair to blame pregnant men right? I wonder what Calvin Klein has to say about this. #calvinklein pic.twitter.com/cReKkxxikt— Steven Crowder (@scrowder) May 12, 2022
The same people who care about wearing a brand like #calvinklein are likely those most susceptible to other forms of propaganda like political campaigns around #COVID and #woke BS— Guy Fawkes 🗽 (@GuyFawkes1111) May 12, 2022
