Playboy puts a man in lingerie on its cover and the MAGA crowd loses it, as they do

Bretman Rock in Playboy’s famous bunny suit

Playboy magazine, perhaps feeling a little starved for attention, decided to put a man in lingerie — the Playboy bunny suit — on the cover of its October issue. The man in question is “influencer” and former MTV star Bretman Rock, the first out gay man who’s appeared on a Playboy cover ever, looking a little bit fierce, if we’re still allowed to use that word.

Roosh V dismissed fears of COVID as “gay” and “girly.” Now he seems to have caught the bug himself, and it’s bad

Roosh, in happier times

It’s probably not a shock to learn that Roosh V — former-PUA-turned-Orthodox-Christian — is a COVID “skeptic” who railed against the COVID vaccines and refused to wear a mask. He once dismissed fears of COVID as “a girl thing” and “gay.”

When gay-as-hell rapper Lil Nas X announced the upcoming release of his debut album by saying he was pregnant with it — and posed for pictures with a fake baby bump — he no doubt knew it would cause some less enlightened folks to blow a gasket.

We’re back for Week in Woke, a couple of days late, but the right-wingers haven’t exactly stopped calling everything they don’t like “woke.”

Here are the latest catches:

Boldly resisting the culture of wokeness

It’s time for another of our weekly looks at the world of “woke” — the all-purpose insult that’s the right-wing’s new version of so-called political correctness.

The Federalist went to a Drag Queen Story Hour and lived to tell the tale

Drag queen Muffy Fishbasket, who is actually a different drag queen than the one I’m writing about in this story
