Fox New anchor Tomi Lahren said that LGBTQ people are “attacking traditional men and marriage at every turn” and used Billy Porter’s dress at the Oscars as evidence.

On Twitter, Lahren wrote, “You can be a proud part of the LGBT community and movement without attacking traditional men and marriage at every turn.”

The tweet left more than a few people confused, since LGBTQ people did fight for years for access to the institution of marriage.

But she sent another tweet to clarify.

“Yes, men are now wearing dresses on the red carpet to stick it to masculinity,” she said, implying that anyone who chooses not to follow the rules of masculinity hates an entire gender.

She was probably referring to actor Billy Porter’s dress-tux at the Academy Awards this past weekend, where he didn’t appear to be attacking anything by wearing an eye-catching outfit.

Lahren may have also been referring to Shangela, who showed up at the Oscars in full drag.

One person on Twitter summed it up.
