If you are on any social media network, whether it is Twitter or Instagram, you might have come across a little something that has to do with Louis Vuitton and a certain someone. This past week, Louis Vuitton named Jaden Smith the new face of their new women’s clothing line.

Woah, wait. A boy? A boy being the face of a women’s clothing line?

It isn’t a rare thing for Jaden ever since he started wearing dresses and skirts out in public. He seems to be in no way affected by it when he posted a picture on Instagram of him wearing a dress with the caption, “Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean ‘Clothes'”.

He, as well as so many other people around, have shown that it is perfectly normal for boys to wear girl clothes and girls to wear boy clothes. The term best to describe what this is called gender fluency.

Gender fluency is “when someone can be more than one gender, not necessarily at the same time, but they feel as they aren’t a specific gender.” (Alicia Serrato).

Another way of explaining gender fluency is how some days the person would feel like a boy, so they are a boy and vice versa. They identify as being gender fluid.

Another thing to add is that being gender fluid does not erase the person’s masculinity or femininity and that being gender fluid does not impact the person’s sexuality. Pronouns are also a very important for a genderfluid person, as they usually prefer people to use they/them/their pronouns.

Jaden Smith is just a simple guy that loves wearing nice clothes. Can anyone blame him? Ruby Rose, of Netflix’s popular TV show Orange Is The New Black, and Miley Cyrus are openly genderfluid as well.

Hopefully, coming into the new year people will realize that clothes are just clothes and they can wear whatever they want no matter what section you buy them at the store. Jaden Smith being named the face of a Louis Vuitton women clothing line is just a step in the right direction.
