On Saturday night (November 21), the 31-year-old Congresswoman answered questions from fans on her Instagram Story.
In one question, a fan asked AOC to share her thoughts on the 26-year-old “Adore You” singer wearing a dress on the latest cover of Vogue.
“It looks wonderful,” AOC responded. “The masculine and feminine elements are balanced beautifully – the hair and jacket styling give me James Dean vibes too.”
Shortly after Harry‘s cover was released, conservative commentator Candace Owens slammed the cover, saying, “There is no society that can survive without strong men.”
AOC went on to address these comments in her Instagram answer.
“Some people are made at it bc some folks are very sensitive to examining and exploring gender roles in society,” AOC wrote. “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 abut it, examine it, explore it, engage it, and grow with it.”
“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” AOC concluded while adding the hands up emoji.
