One thing I feel like this fandom ignores is that fact that a good portion of the fans are <18 and the things they say are just so nasty. Tumblr is supposed to be a safe place and antis just stigmatize all larries so if your a Larrie you must spend all your time forcing sexualities and genders on them and who tops and bottoms? And we don't care about any other lgbtq+ people or issues other than Larrie or even before we shipped them and that's just not true at all. 1/2
A lot of us are queer and the thought that our role models are apart of the community is very comforting. And even if you see the way they act and say they’re only friends you can’t deny the fact that they break gender norms and the closeness they all have is beyond how normal lads act towards each other in public. Which is all very refreshing and it makes us all feel safe bc if harry kisses louis on video and puts it on the Internet they won’t hate me if they meet me and find out I’m queer 2/2
When I saw this post going around and all the notes it had, I was genuinely horrified. I’m not kidding about the stigmatization.
me: *steps on a larrie*
larrie: *makes crunching sound like its a cockroach*
