After receiving a barrage of attacks following his Vogue cover shoot, Harry Styles has finally spoken out against all the critics with a simple, yet effective photograph.
You don't want to miss this one, folks...
Last month, all anyone could talk about was Harry Styles' Vogue U.S. cover shoot.
But it didn't come without backlash.It got so bad that even his mother had to jump in and defend her son over the issue.
But why were people so angry?It was all because of one thing - a dress.
Now, it's no secret that Harry has become more expressive with his fashion choices in the last year...
And last month, he's brought his quirky style to the cover of Vogue.
It's needless to say that most people were loving Harry in a dress...
With many applauding the young singer for breaking down toxic gender stereotypes in his photoshoot.

Here he is, in all his glory.As well as posing in dresses and skirts, Harry also partook in a lengthy interview, wherein he discussed his stance on the stereotypes surrounding clothing and fashion choices.
The "Watermelon Sugar" singer discussed his mission to "de-gender" certain items of clothing.In his interview with the fashion publication, he said: "Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. 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."
He continued:"I’ll go to shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means - it just becomes this extended part of creating something."
Harry admitted that "dress up" was a big part of his childhood.“As a kid, I definitely liked fancy dress," he explained. “I was really young, and I wore tights for that [school play]. I remember it was crazy to me that I was wearing a pair of tights. And that was maybe where it all kicked off!"
However, despite the overwhelmingly warm reception to Harry's photoshoot, not everybody was too impressed...
The controversial figure savagely slammed Harry on Twitter.
Here's what she said:
"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."

She later continued on her Instagram Stories:"Men in ball gowns is not a thing. Sorry, I’m not sorry. Conservatives are done bending to the weird, perverted will of the left and their Hollywood cohorts. Feminine women don’t need to sit back and allow uglier women to preach to them about why 'normal' is wrong."
She also added this:"Masculine men don’t need to listen to feminized men tell them about how 'stunning' and 'brave' it would be if they castrated themselves in front of the world. It’s a new day. We’re no longer the silent majority."
Quite predictably, Candace's Tweet generated an overwhelming amount of backlash and outrage...
Triggered was an understatement.

Candace quickly responded to the Twitter onslaught...And, of course, she wasn't the least bit sorry.
She unapologetically tweeted this:
"Since I’m trending I’d like to clarify what I meant when I said 'bring back manly men.' I meant: Bring back manly men. Terms like 'toxic masculinity,' were created by toxic females. Real women don’t do fake feminism. Sorry, I’m not sorry."
