Laynie's Dress Ripped Off Out of Vengeance


So… wanna see a really angry Grazia? Too late, I’ve cooled off by now, but when I read Laynie’s message about her shop being bugged by a bunch of people protesting against her and Teagan’s support of Autism Speaks, and as a result Laynie’s Vanessa dress being ripped off … trust me I had steam coming out of my ears.

First and for all because, like Laynie and Teagan, I do support Autism Speaks. I think it is a great cause. Autism speaks researches the causes and possible treatments for autism, and helps patients and their families to live their life to the fullest of possibilities. This is their mission statement:

At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism pectrum disorders.We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.

Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.Autism Speaks.

It’s time to listen.

Secondly, I think ripping someone’s work in general, but especially to take revenge over someone you don’t agree with, is despicable and pathetic and it makes me want to throw things.

Laynie now put the dress that was ripped out for free. I went to pick it up, and while I was there left a donation at the kiosk outside. I suggest you all do the same and turn this into something good.

  1. This almost unbelievable. Not the theft. That’s, alas, all too common these days. But to be against supporting research into a condition that devastates children and families around the world. I can’t even get my brain cells around what they could be thinking. Of course I contributed.

  2. Thank you for your support. Having many friends with autism and a family member this charity is important to me. When she threatened this, both Laynie and I sent out an AR but never heard either way on the issue.
