Young Thug: "There's no such thing as gender"

Rapper speaks his mind in new Calvin Klein campaign.

Young Thug doesn't care for your social norms and he's letting it be known in a global campaign for Calvin Klein.

As one of the few faces picked to star in the brand's new Fall 2016 ads — Frank Ocean was selected, too — Thugger speaks on gender-specific clothing and his rejection of the concept:

"In my world, of course, it don't matter. You could be a gangster with a dress, you could be a gangster with baggy pants. I feel like there's no such thing as gender."

Jaden Smith: "I don't see man clothes and woman clothes"

If you know Young Thug, this open-mindedness shouldn't surprise you — last we saw him, he was donning a ruffled Prince-style blouse, high-waisted pants and MJ-esque penny loafers — but that doesn't make his words any less powerful.

In the clip, a woman off camera can be heard telling Thugger, "You look hot in a dress." Unfortunately, that campaign photo has yet to be released, but we're on the lookout.
