I’m pretty sure that if a completely objective person with no context into One Direction or the fandom paid attention to Harry’s behavior over the past few months they’d come to the conclusion that he’s interested in men.
It’s not that that should really mean anything for us, but it’s worth pointing out when we’re getting constantly shot down by half the fandom and they’re screaming “YOU’RE STEREOTYPING YOU’RE THE HOMOPHOBES BLAH BLAH BLAH” at us in pretty abusive manners.
We’re not stereotyping. We’re reading social codes. I’m not talking about his pirouettes or sashays or when he sticks a pink bow or party hat on his head, because yes, those are stereotypes, and while sometimes they go hand in hand with it, they don’t mean anything in and of themselves. And they shouldn’t.
I’m talking about how yesterday he flat-out flirted with a guy in the crowd, how he makes nearly constant dick and blowjob innuendos, and how he makes regular references to LGBTQIA+ culture beyond support that could be interpreted as an ally’s (no, I am not even referencing the Michael Sam jersey here, because that is a show of support that could just as likely come from an ally).
So no, we’re not crazy, and we’re not fetishizing homosexuality, and we’re not trying to jump all over Harry’s identity for him. Like I said - we’re reading social codes, and I’m pretty sure a bystander would come to the same conclusion.
