Logan Paul Does Something Good For Once And Stands Up For Harry Styles in Dress Debate

Harry Styles wore a dress. I have no idea why this is something people are talking about, but it is. Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, host of The Ben Shapiro Show and representative of the Lollipop Guild, called the Vogue cover featuring Styles in a dress “a referendum on masculinity.” Sometimes it’s actually okay not to have an opinion on things, especially if you’re three feet tall, you sound like you’ve just inhaled the entire US strategic reserve of helium and you want to tell us about being manly.

Good guy Logan Paul came to Styles’ defense though, saying… wait, hold up. Logan Paul? The suicide forest guy? The dude who just yesterday called Floyd Mayweather a pussy? That Logan Paul is doing the right thing here? I’m just as shocked as you are.

Good guy Logan Paul came to Styles’ defense though, saying “Is manly being comfortable in your own skin and being comfortable with who you are, regardless of what you’re wearing?”

People are complex and we all contain multitudes. Except for Ben Shapiro, he doesn’t have the physical space to contain multi-anything.

“I’m listening to you tell me you don’t want to judge people…and then watching you judge people!” he said. “I’m not getting angry, but I’m calling you out for your flaw.” He also told his co-hosts that their “lack of logic” would lose them this argument. “[You’re saying], ‘People shouldn’t judge people,’ but then, ‘He’s not a man because he’s wearing a dress,’” Logan pointed out.

I believe that when someone is right, they’re right, and they should get props for that. Logan Paul is right, not being traditionally masculine doesn’t make you less of a man. When people talk about toxic masculinity, if they know what they’re saying, they’re making the same point Paul is making; that there are all kinds of ways to be a man and that forcing men to act within a certain defined role is detrimental to all men. There’s nothing wrong with being traditionally masculine and there’s nothing wrong with not being traditionally masculine.

Logan Paul has a pretty large audience of pretty impressionable young people and I’m glad that, for once, he’s using that platform to advance an idea that will actually make the world a better place.
