Ulta Beauty launched a podcast titled “The Beauty Of…” hosted by David Lopez, who identifies as “gender-fluid.” The podcast features influencers who give their definitions of beauty. One of the guests was transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, who discussed “girlhood.” Ulta Beauty posted the interview saying “Trans Girls Can Do It All!”
Luxury Brand Balenciaga released an ad campaign featuring children holding stuffed bears that were dressed in bondage outfits and BDSM accessories. This glorified version of child pornography in its ad campaign comes after Balenciaga’s creative director said, “fashion should not please.” Previous campaigns have Balenciaga’s products photographed with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on child pornography.
