Candace Owens is going full “Karen” over Vogue magazine’s latest cover featuring Harry Styles blowing a balloon while dressed in a ball gown and custom Gucci jacket.

The 31-year-old conservative pundit tweeted her displeasure towards the former One Direction singer’s apparent shirking of gender norms. “There is no society that can survive without strong men,” Owens writes. “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.”

If that wasn’t blatant enough, Candace left nothing on the table in her disgust for a man wearing a woman’s dress, bleating, “Bring back manly men.”

In the Vogue piece, Styles is candid about his infatuation with traditional women’s clothes. “I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing,” he tells the publication. “…You can never be overdressed. There’s no such thing.”

He attributes this affinity for cross dressing to rock legends that were revolutionary in bending gender clothing perceptions. “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. As a kid it was completely mind-blowing,” he said. “When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play.”

Fellow celebrity, and costar in the upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling, Olivia Wilde, was quick to defend Harry’s cover and denounce Owens commenting, “You’re pathetic.”
