are you going to still support louis if he never comes out? not with this fake baby bs but if after all is done he still stays in a closet w or w/o harry?
Yes. I actually feel like I need to say some things here. I’m glad you’re saying after all is done and not with all this current bullshit, because if I believed Louis is using a baby to closet himself that’s kind of a different story. This fandom tends to demonise closet though and that’s justa big no. Coming out is a personal decision, staying in closet is a personal decision, nobody owes anyone a coming out. I am closeted, it’s just not safe for me to come out, it doesn’t mean I hate who I am, it doesn’t mean I am not proud of who I am because hell, I love who I am and I am proud to belong in the community I do. Is it safe for me to come out right now? No, it is unfortunately not, but that doesn’t make me a bad person does it. I often see people acting like Harry/Louis owe them coming out. They don’t owe you shit. I also see antis acting like closet doesn’t exists so they can fuck off as well.
I feel like I need to say all this as this fandom is.. literal mess and if Louis decided to not come out that’s his choice. That being said, everything that we’ve seen from Louis over the years shows that he does want to come out, that he wants to come out with Harry, that they are in it together. And again, being in closet does not mean having internalised homophobia or being homophobic and again, from what we’ve seen from Louis he is very much proud of who he is, he is proud of who he loves and I am sick of people trying to either imply he’s a homophobe or outward saying that. He’s trying to show support to his community as much as he can and he keeps showing people this is not what he chose (though, again this is completely different situation than staying in closet later on). I know Louis helps many LGBT+ people in the fandom, I am so grateful for the lgbt+ songs he writes and that they all have a positive message and stuff like that. I don’t think he wants to stay closeted at all, he definitely fought and is fighting against the situation they’re in, he’s proud of who he is, loves his lgbt+ fans and community and I love him.
IF he chose to stay closeted, that’s his choice. But I don’t want people to erase all the things he’s done, all the ways he’s been trying to communicate with us, to show support, to show who he really is, even though he can’t actually say it. I don’t want people to just ignore his actions and act like they’re meaningless, saying maybe he wants this and that, he’s homophobic because he isn’t able to show as much support as people would imagine and stuff like that. Louis is very loud and clear and he is lovely and some people need to understand the differences.
