Fox News Darling Tomi Lahren Tells LGBT Community to Stop 'Attacking Traditional Men & Marriage'

Wednesday Feb 27, 2019

Fox News fave Tomi Lauren took to Twitter this week to lash out against the LGBTQ community, urging people to stop "attacking traditional men and marriage at every turn."

"I just don't get this ongoing and continual assault on masculinity by the Left," she wrote. "You can be a proud part of the LGBT community and movement without attacking traditional men and marriage at every turn."


She followed up that tweet, which earned almost 16,000, likes, criticizing men who wear womenswear ware to red carpet events to "stick it to masculinity."

"Welcome to Lala Liberal Award Show season 2019," she tweeted.


Her outrage comes after "Pose" star Billy Porter wore a fabulous velvet tuxedo connected to a large dress, a custom look from designer Christian Siriano.

"People are going to be really uncomfortable with my black ass in a ball gown, but it's not anybody's business but mine," the Tony Award winner told the Associated Press.

"I was ready to create the conversation," he added. "We have to teach people how to treat us, we have to teach people how to love us, we have to teach people how to respect us, and the only way we do that is to respect ourselves."

He went on to tell the AP he understands where established notions of black masculinity originated, and he understands how toxic they can be. He and his stylist, Sam Ratelle, also realize how rigid gender-driven taboos can be and want to help the walls come down.

"It goes all the way back to the earliest of emasculations, which is slavery, so the only way to sort of overcome that is to be the strongest and the most masculine and the most powerful and now, what has become toxic," Porter said. "And I don't think it's just black people. I think it's men in general. Every ethnicity has their version of it."

Porter does not care about the negative reactions his look may have sparked.

"The comments are not my business. What people think about what I'm doing is not my business. I lived that already," he told the AP. "I'm inside of my authenticity and the whole point is that you have to respect me as much as I respect you. If you don't like it, go somewhere else. You don't have to look. It's not about you. I don't understand why my putting on a dress causes this much strife in your life."

    ""I just don’t get this ongoing and continual assault on masculinity by the Left," she wrote. "You can be a proud part of the LGBT community and movement without attacking traditional men and marriage at every turn.""Of course you do not get it, you are not a gay man who grew up in a straight man’s world.
