The video of Little Mix isn’t as bad, from my perspective, as the transcript of the conversation perceived it to be, but it’s so rude. Sure, they can have their own opinion but what was the point in mentioning Taylor, or being so defensive about saying they would “swipe left”? If you don’t want to date him, fine, if you don’t fancy him in that way or see him as boyfriend material or whatever, fine, but really? I can’t help but think that if Zayn was in the band they probably wouldn’t have responded so negatively, or at least softened the blow of their answers, but they downright rejected him and didn’t care to listen to the fact that it was “hypothetically speaking.” I hate that Leigh-Anne brought up Taylor. There was no reason to do that what so ever, it was just a snide remark to their relationship which was so so so unnecessary..
And now they’re trending worldwide, or at least were, just as they’re reportedly about to drop their new single, and release their album and most likely go on tour again, let’s hope they sell out their shows this time right? I can’t feel like this is some ridiculous attempt at promo, which obviously won’t work because yeah, they’re being talked about but it’s for the wrong reason. Hating or “shading” or whatever on one of the members of the biggest band in the world isn’t going to get sales up for them, it’s most likely going to prevent people from wanting to listen to their music because they just upset or angered a hell of a lot of people that have the power to do whatever they want, so maybe the should have stopped to think about how they were going to answer that question before they actually did because it doesn’t matter who you are, if you mess with the fandom, you will feel the wrath of the fans.
I have no problem with Little Mix, I’m all for empowering women and feminism and I’m guessing they don’t hate Harry or whatever, they just don’t find him “desirable” but Harry is also one of the most kind, caring, feministic (totally not a word but..) males you will ever come across, he never objectifies women, he’s not a womanizer that the media always portrays him to be and I wish more people outside the fandom saw him this way.
