Liberal Logic on Designer Who Won’t Dress Melania: Conscience Rights for Me But Not for Thee



Donald Trump’s election has brought no shortage of controversy. One of the latest comes from clothing designer Sophie Theallet, who recently wrote that she “will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady.” In explaining her decision, she invoked her deeply-held belief in “individual freedom.”

“[A]s a family owned company,” Theallet explains, “[w]e value our artistic freedom and always humbly seek to contribute to a more humane, conscious and ethical way to create in this world.” She considers her and her family’s work to be “an expression of [their] artistic and philosophical ideas.”

Ms. Theallet, in other words, wants to operate her business consistent with her conscience. If asked to use her work to promote a cause or a spokesperson whose message she cannot stomach, she plans to decline.

She should have every right to do this, and most would readily agree. But oh how the sentiments of some change when the artist is a not a clothing designer who objects to the incoming president and his family, but a floral artist who does not want to design arrangements to celebrate a same-sex wedding

Refusing a job she's never been offered? What an impressive political statement. Melania probably has clothing design skills equal to this twit's,

Considering the weird shit Michelle's been tricked out in over the years, I count this as a win.
