The oh-so-conservative Ms. Owens was not impressed by the dress.
“There is no society that can survive without strong men,” Owens tweeted. “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 hissed in closing.
Today, Styles posted a photo of himself wearing a light blue suit complete with fluffy shirt sleeves while eating a banana.
His caption was brilliant in its simplicity: “Bring back manly men.”
The post has received over 6.5 million ‘Likes’ in less than a day.
Owens reportedly commented on Styles’ post but it, to be honest, was too hard for me to scroll through all the love sent his way in the comments. Pretending to be oblivious to his sarcasm, she wrote, “Thank God you agree.”
Unable to resist her ugly nature, though, she threw in another catty remark writing, “He looks great! He just doesn’t look masculine.”
In his Vogue cover interview, Styles shared his view of exploring the possibilities of fashion and referenced pop music royalty as his inspirations.
“The people that I looked up to in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen,” he told Vogue. “As a kid it was completely mind-blowing. Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with.”
Regarding the nasty tilt Owens clearly assigned to her conservative bent, it’s notable that Styles has been vocal about his support for all of his fans.
At several concerts in the past, he’s carried rainbow flags and declared his love for every fan: “If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender – whoever you are, whoever you want to be, I support you and I love every single one of you.”
Throughout the tour, the longtime LGBTQ ally has been dedicating songs to male fans and rocking out during guitar solos with rainbow flags.
In addition to multiple super-supportive LGBTQ moments on his tour, Harry has also been selling tour t-shirts with the phrase “Treat People With Kindness” in rainbow print with all proceeds going to GLSEN, an education organization that works to ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment.

British singer/songwriter Harry Styles is currently on tour in the U.S. and giving us many Pride Month moments to savor throughout the tour.
In Philadelphia on last night, handsome Harry saw a Pride flag being carried by fan Karla Balcazar in the audience and asked her to hand it to him. Harry took the flag, which read “Make America Gay Again,” and held it up for the audience to see.
And then there’s the moment when the 24-year-old pop star pointed to a male fan mid-concert and asked him what he was drinking.
When the fan said, “vodka,” Harry responded, “Straight?”
The fan said, “No, I’m gay!”
Harry then laughed and said, “No, I meant straight vodka, not ‘Are you straight?’”
“It’s vodka! Straight? No, gay!”
“Is it straight vodka? Ok, glad we cleared that up!”
How can you not love this guy?
Styles’ LGBTQ support has been evident throughout the tour, even been selling tour t-shirts with the phrase “Treat People With Kindness” in rainbow print.
All proceeds from the shirts go to GLSEN, an education organization that works to ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment.
Former One Direction singer Harry Styles, now touring in support of his debut solo album which hit #1 in the US and UK, gave an impassioned speech on behalf of LGBT folks this weekend in Stockholm, Sweden.
“If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender – whoever you are, whoever you want to be, I support you and I love every single one of you.”
During an interview on French television earlier this year, Harry was asked about LGBT+ equality being political, and his answer was totally on point.
“That doesn’t feel like politics to me,” he said. “Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone is equal. That doesn’t feel like politics to me.”
