Aussie under­wear giant Bonds is stir­ring up a social media storm with their lat­est Pride cam­paign fea­tur­ing a non-bina­ry mod­el rock­ing a biki­ni. While some hail it as a bold step towards inclu­siv­i­ty, oth­ers are fum­ing, call­ing for a boycott.

The Cam­paign: Bonds’ 2024 Pride col­lec­tion show­cas­es diverse mod­els, includ­ing trans­gen­der indi­vid­u­als, drag queens, and non-bina­ry folks like Mikey, who dons a “Retro Ribℱ Seam­less Tonal Hi Biki­ni” with confidence.

Sup­port­ers Cheer: Many applaud Bonds for cel­e­brat­ing inclu­siv­i­ty and chal­leng­ing tra­di­tion­al beau­ty stan­dards. Com­ments like “Thank you for show­ing diver­si­ty!” and “This is what the world needs — more brands like Bonds!” high­light the pos­i­tive reception.

Crit­ics Cry Foul: Some cus­tomers expressed out­rage, claim­ing it’s “inap­pro­pri­ate” and “insult­ing to women.” One-star reviews flood­ed the prod­uct page, and sim­i­lar sen­ti­ments erupt­ed on social media.

Not a First: This isn’t the first time inclu­siv­i­ty in mar­ket­ing has sparked con­tro­ver­sy. Rip Curl and Bud Light faced sim­i­lar back­lash for fea­tur­ing trans­gen­der mod­els in wom­en’s cloth­ing campaigns.

Bonds Responds: The com­pa­ny stands firm, remind­ing crit­ics that “inap­pro­pri­ate or offen­sive” com­ments will be removed. They empha­size their com­mit­ment to inclu­siv­i­ty and rep­re­sent­ing the diverse com­mu­ni­ties that wear Bonds.

The Con­ver­sa­tion Con­tin­ues: The debate rages on, high­light­ing the com­plex­i­ties of inclu­siv­i­ty in mar­ket­ing. While some cel­e­brate progress, oth­ers resist change. Bonds’ bold move has ignit­ed a con­ver­sa­tion that tran­scends swimwear, prompt­ing dis­cus­sions about iden­ti­ty, rep­re­sen­ta­tion, and the bound­aries of inclusivity.
