"Think Vogue is a bit confused on what gender fluidity is! Wearing your gf's T-shirt does not make you gender fluid," wrote one Twitter user, referring to an excerpt in the story when the couple talks about borrowing each other's clothes. Added another Twitter user, "yes hello police, Gigi Hadid wore pants last week and now vogue is calling her a gender fluid icon."
