Must’ve been a slow news day at good ol’ FoxNews on Wednesday…
Laura Ingraham has gone on yet another long-winded rant about the so-called (also, non-existent) “war on men” in contemporary America. The weapon of war this time?
Fashion, or something. It’s honestly hard to tell.
Mostly it was the same rhetoric as always, but there was one bit that had people scratching their heads:
“For years, Hollywood’s been pushing the skinny jeans crop-top pajama boy version of masculinity on us, we’ve gotten kind of used to it.”
What in the name of heaven and all the planets is a “pajama boy”‽‽
That’s not a thing!
Are men wearing pajamas to work now or something? Or is it the entire idea of pajamas that supposedly makes you a weak little ladyboy?
Do rough-and-tough Republican men—you know the kind who carry assault rifles in farmer’s markets and the like—only sleep naked because jammies are for commies or something‽‽
Also… who and where are these men out here wearing crop-tops‽
Pretty sure the last men Hollywood gave us in crop-tops were Bill & Ted back in 1989.
Here, let’s watch Ingraham’s entire opus and see if it makes more sense:
Oh whoops… nope!
Still total nonsense.
For good measure though, Ingraham also saved time to completely misrepresent the American Psychological Association’s 2018 “Guidelines for Psychological Practice for Boys and Men” as having “trashed traditional masculinity,” whatever that is, and also to crow about Gillette’s anti-bullying ad—from NINE WHOLE ENTIRE MONTHS AGO (that’s 57 million years in internet time).
So at least it wasn’t entirely nonsensical.
Anyway, as you might guess, Ingraham’s bizarre deep dive into the elusive American “Pajama Boy” had the internet like “LOLWUT.”
Wait, so are the pajamas made up of skinny jeans and a crop top? Or is it an outfit where you simultaneously wear pajamas, skinny jeans and a crop top? Do the pajamas go under the jeans and crop top or over them?

“Skinny jeans crop top pajama boy…” no less. Sorry. I want to offer you insight but while I comprehend the individual words, I’ve never encountered them in this particular order…

I’ve worked in Hollywood. Where can I sign up to be a “pajama boy?” Sounds relaxing. https://t.co/raNutZ30qH

Never seen a skinny jeans croptop pajama boy in anything Hollywood has done lately, but go off.

Do conservatives not wear pajamas? They generally seem a bit frigid to be nude sleepers.

Spot on as usual, Laura. This year’s highest paid actor is noted pajama boy Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson https://t.co/pg5pzBpjyo

Though some seemed ready to embrace their new identity as a crop-top pajama boy.
I can think of no more accurate a term for my masculinity than "Pajama Boy " https://t.co/KRd71FCqtw

Fox crackpot Laura Ingraham says Hollywood is pushing "the skinny jeans croptop pajama boy version of masculinity", causing gay men everywhere to add "hot pajama boy" to their dating profiles.

And others were definitely ready for Hollywood’s new trend of skinny jeans crop-top pajama boys, whenever it may begin.
When do we see George Clooney in that getup?
