Lil Duval Is Scared of a Gender-Bending World That Includes Jaden Smith

The rapper fears it's "only a glimpse of what's to come."

Jaden Smith has been getting a lot of props lately for his bold style choices and out-of-the-box thinking, especially since he became the latest face of Louis Vuitton womenswear (that's right, womenswear!), but not everyone is here for his gender-bending ways.

Lil Duval shared his views on Jaden's unconventional style on Instagram yesterday, and seems pretty scared for a future in which gender identity is fluid. "Welcome to the future. Where humans are no longer considered male or female," he begins. "We won't be tripping off gay anymore because sex won't exist. Hate it now but this is only a glimpse of what's to come. And just like everything else we hate we end up conforming. Kinda like we did with snapchat. Everybody hated it at first now we all ok wit it. Same with Instagram. Racism isn't what's winning. technology is #staywoke."

Well, at least the rapper and comedian plans to "conform" to a state of acceptance, which only seems fair considering anyone who identified outside of "gay" or "straight" has had to conform for decades. 

Unlike Duval, many of his followers are excited to embrace Smith's non-conformity rather than simply tolerate it. Watch BET Breaks below to see how the budding fashion icon is changing the game:
