Others criticised the publication's missed opportunity to shine a light on people who do actually identify as gender-fluid. One user wrote: "vogue magazine made an article about gender fluidity and didn't bother interviewing gender fluid people... alright"

"In this political climate US Vogue put a Muslim immigrant and a half-Palestinian on its cover. that's important," one person wrote.
