Yeah, it's so true. Some people will look at these pictures and instead of seeing Harry, the real Harry, they will just shrug it off as artsy photo shoot.
Unfortunately, as loud and strong as image concepts can be, they’re not as effective as words are when it comes to an audience that doesn’t want to listen.
We do remember how this fandom reacted even to quite obvious and repeated statements from Harry. Hets and Antis have ignored all the rainbows and hints they boys gave out, but they’ve been able to brush off even Not that important and Don’t knock it till you try for quite some time.
Another man was beautiful and such an important step for Harry and the building of his new (as in yet not public) image, but it won’t mean anything to that portion of the fandom until (or unless) its core and meaning are reaffirmed and evolved over and over by Harry himself in many different ways.
