Candace Owens: Harry Styles in a Dress Will Destroy Western Society

"There is no society that can survive without strong men," Owens claimed.

Conservative pundit and friend-of-Trump Candace Owens is terrified that a straight, cisgender man wearing a dress means the end of Western Civilization as we know it (and would that be such a bad thing?)

"There is no society that can survive without strong men," Owens boldly claimed on Twitter on Saturday. "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," she continued.

Now, if this sounds like a baseless and completely absurd conspiracy theory, that's because it is. Harry Styles is the first solo male cover star in Vogue history, and wears a dress in some of the photos, but is hardly attacking Western Civilization in doing so. Many men have enjoyed wearing dresses and "women's clothes" since clothes became gendered, and they'll continue to do so as long as they are.

Of course, Twitter responded and gave Owens a couple lessons in manhood and Western history.

Bob The Drag Queen took Owens to SCHOOL, tweeting, "You're ignoring the fact that no society can survive without fem men, or masc women, or fem women, or people in between all of that. It's almost like no society is a monolith and that's how societies thrive... through multiple contributions from various demographics." Damn!

Trixie Mattel had a simpler message for Owens. "Honey- you got a big storm comin'," was all she needed to tweet.

Queer journalist and Youtuber Carlos Maza tweeted "what I love most about all these 'edgy' new conservatives is that they sound exactly like the pearl-clutching puritans who've been around since the 50s and 60s. Genuinely impossible for them to be cool for even one second."

Many other users replied or quote retweeted with pictures of men from the past wearing dresses, skirts, wigs, and tights, as men have done for much of history.

Honestly, thank you Candace Owens, for giving the internet something to laugh about this weekend, we needed it.
