22 Hardships Adult One Direction Fans Face

So last week or so Buzzfeed made an article entitled  "21 Hardships Only Adult One Direction Fans Understand" 

And while it made some good points.. Vicky (nooelgallagher) and I thought they left out A LOT of things so we kind of rewrote an entire list. 

Now presenting….. “22 Hardships Adult One Direction Fans Face”

1. When you hear 1D playing at the bar you’re at and you’re like, “Maybe I shouldn’t bump it” but then they start singing and you’re like, “Nah Imma do it anyway.”

image

2. When you and your child/student have the same favorite.

image

3. Having to explain to everyone the fact that Haylor wasn’t real.

image

 

4. Starting a 60k fanfic when you have work/class the next day. 

image

5. Knowing absolutely way too much about music management and how PR works. 

image

6. Wanting to get spectacularly drunk with the boys and talk to them about everything instead of wanting to get jiggy with it (well there’s probably 1 you wouldn’t object to…).

image

7. Hating Modest! Management for more than one reason.

image

 

8. Not seeing any adults in the general vicinity of you at the concert but knowing, just knowing, there are others like you somewhere in that crowd.

image

 

9.  Knowing that your fave is probably married to your other fave.

image

 

10. Responding to “Don’t you want to date them??” with “They don’t even want to date their current girlfriends.”

image

11. Having to deal with the stereotype that One Direction fans are only teenage girls and being a teenage girl is an insult.

image

12. Recognizing the problematic elements in songs and videos.

image

 

13. Suffering through bad PR attempts that you don’t let be force fed to you. 

image

14. Feeling the need to justify why you like them when they’re all 21 and up (except for Harry which 3 more months).

image

 

15. Trying to explain why you like them because it’s not that you think you’re going to marry them (but everyone thinks that’s why anyway).

image



16. Not wanting to follow the boys on Twitter because sometimes more than others, it is not them (and then having to deal with the bullshit when it is not them).

image

 

17. Recognizing that sometimes your fave is problematic, and educating them and other fans on why.

image

18. Not wanting to leave to go to work or class (especially on a Sunday) because shit could go down at any moment.

image

19. Acknowledging the various economic, sociocultural, and ethnic backgrounds each boy brings to the group and feeling offended on their behalf when those backgrounds are ignored or joked about.

image

20. The general whitewashing of the group that reinforces the claim that only white people are worth paying attention to.

image

21. Being an LGBT advocate in an overwhelmingly homophobic environment perpetuated by management and the fandom.

image

 

22. Recognizing that the boys could be extremely good role models for kids, teenagers and young adults everywhere, but they are not used that way but instead used as a brand.

well i guess it’s time to question the symbol of a chef hat

i keep picturing luke as so dorky and awkward on his first thanksgiving with your family and he would try to help in the kitchen because the idea of being alone with your father terrified him so he would have on a little apron on and do little things that your mom needed help with and you would just sit there looking at him and observe how massive he looked in the environment of the kitchen with everything else and he would look up and give you a big cheesy smile at you occasionally and steal kisses when your mom had he back turned i jus t
