Conservative commentators, Candance Owens and Ben Shapiro, took this opportunity to declare that masculinity is under attack in the West

Harry Styles graced the cover of Vogue as the first man to do so in 127 years, and took the internet by storm. 

The 26-year-old singer defied gender rules by wearing a dress after being inspired by the fearlessly flamboyant looks of his icons such as Prince, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Elvis Presley.

While fans of the former One Direction heartthrob went gaga over his Vogue cover dress, a few were reluctant to embrace Styles' gender-defying looks. 

One of them is the conservative commentator Candce Owens, who equated wearing a dress with being weak and warned against the alleged advance of Marxism into the West.

"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."

Director Olivia Wilde hit back at Owens along with Styles' scores of fans. 

"You're pathetic," Wilde tweeted. The actor-turned director is currently working with the One Direction singer in her upcoming film Don't Worry, Darling, which would mark Styles' second big screen appearance after Dunkirk.

Conservative pundit, Ben Shapiro, voiced support for Owens and retweeted, “Anyone who pretends this is not a referendum on masculinity for men to don floofy dresses is treating you like a full-on idiot.”

"I think that there is nothing more manly than a man being so secure with his masculinity that he can wear a dress," a fan argued.

Many on Twitter were patient enough to school the US rightwingers about men's fashion from a historical perspective by pointing out that men traditionally donned gender-blurring outfits from the Middle East to Scotland while successfully preserving their masculinity.
