The Wrap reports:
Conservative commentator Candace Owens is facing down Twitter wrath after saying Harry Styles’ groundbreaking Vogue cover is an “outright attack” on “manly men” in American society. On the cover, which was the first one ever to feature a man by himself, Styles wore a Gucci dress. When the cover was revealed last Friday, Styles and the Vogue team were met with praise for breaking gender norms for both fashion magazine cover models and men at large.
There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence.
It is an outright attack.
Bring back manly men. https://t.co/sY4IJF7VkK

i think you’ve missed the definition of what a man is. masculinity alone does not make a man

Assuming Candace’s definition of “manly men” means those most capable of attracting a suitable female mate, I’m pretty sure Harry Styles will fare 100% better in a dress than any of the body armor-wearing losers wandering city streets whining about not being replaced https://t.co/pUBZoL7EXE

This is perfectly obvious. Anyone who pretends that it is not a referendum on masculinity for men to don floofy dresses is treating you as a full-on idiot. https://t.co/cioUNBh4bi

I don’t really care about this particular controversy, but I feel obliged to point out one of the odder factoids of the past few years: on Jeffrey Epstein’s living-room wall, we learned, was an oil painting of Bill Clinton in a dress.
I have no idea why. https://t.co/AOkEJLfuMK

I’ll give Candace Owens and Ben Shapiro editorial rights to Vogue in exchange for DC statehood and four Senators for Queens.
