Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended former One Direction member Harry Styles for wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue.
AOC, 31, insisted that the overall style looks wonderful and reminded her of James Dean.
The masculine and feminine elements are balanced beautifully – the hair and jacket styling give me James Dean vibes too,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Some people are mad at it bc some folks are very sensitive to examining and exploring gender roles in society,” she continued. “Perhaps for some people it provokes some anger or insecurity around masculinity/femininity/etc. If it does, then maybe that’s part of the point.
“Sit with that reaction and think about it, examine it, explore it, engage it, and grow with it.”
The Democrat concluded her post by writing: “What’s the point of creating things if they don’t make people think? Or feel or reflect? Especially as an artist or creative? Who wants to see the same thing all the time? And never explore their assumptions?
“Anyways it looks bomb so…”
Styles made history as the first solo male cover star of US Vogue but the photos were met with ridicule and scorn from Candace Owens, who took to Twitter and wrote: “There is no society that can survive without strong men … bring back manly men.”
Owens added: “Sorry I’m not sorry.”
Matt Walsh also supported Owen’s remarks, tweeting that she was trending “because of whiney idiots are mad that she said men who wear dresses aren’t manly.
“Her statement, of course, is true and utterly self-evident, and would have provoked no reaction as recently as a decade ago.”
Owens responded and said: “Wait until they find out that I also think women should be feminine – and I enjoy cooking for and taking care of my husband. DEFCON 1.”
