harry's shit

anonymous asked:

"harry has closet knocked repeatedly and SOFT OUTED HIMSELF TWICE and for you to act like we’re somehow in the wrong for listening to the words coming out of his own mouth is offensive and tone deaf" BUT he also choose to talk about girls ( or have ben do it) and he choose not to fight RS about it and you ignoring it/not accpeting it instead of bringing up 2014 is also wrong. It's his closet and he can do whatever he wants. He dosn't need you being a warrior bringing up 2014 every time he talks.

listen up douchebag it doesn’t matter when harry said it because time doesn’t make it any less true.

you seem to be a little bit confused about how the closet usually operates for celebrities trying to build a career so i’m going to give you a quick refresher with luke evans as a case study.

in the early 2000s he was an out and proud gay man in the theatre scene.

In 2002, when Evans was 23 and starring in the West End production of the Boy George musical Taboo, he was very forthcoming to The Advocate’s Paris Barclay. “People come up to me in pubs, gay pubs mind you, and can’t believe that I’m gay,” Evans said. He continued, telling Barclay that he had no intention of hiding this part of his personal life. (Barclay wrote in the introduction to his interview with Evans that he wanted to talk to Evans about his candor in particular “before Luke Evans becomes a household name here in the States and changes his mind!”) In 2004, when Evans performed in Hardcore, a stage drama about the UK porn industry, he reiterated the message, saying that being out hasn’t affected his career. “I did it for myself,” he told London gay magazine QX. “I didn’t do it for anything else — just my own self worth. I wasn’t happy living a lie as I’d been living a lie for the majority of my life, so performing in Taboo was a good time to come out, and it hasn’t bothered my career at all.”

cut to 2010 - he starts booking big film roles (like clash of the titans and the hobbit) and suddenly he’s back in the closet and talking about his girlfriend. it’s almost like - shocker - despite his previous comments, industry pressure was put on him to pretend he’s straight because there’s still a pretty huge stigma around openly gay leading men.

The 34 year-old Evans, who has had steady work in blockbuster movies in the last three years starting with his film debut in 2010’s Clash of the Titans, has achieved modest success in Hollywood with roles in overblown, big-budget films. Also on his resume are two adventure films, The Three Musketeers and Immortals, as well as the forgettable Edgar Allen Poe horror biopic The Raven; before landing the lead in The Crow, Evans’ biggest breakout was a role in Peter Jackson’s three-part adaptation of The Hobbit. As with many up-and-coming Hollywood actors, Evans’ name has popped up in a few news items linking him to giddy ingénues: take this press release-lite story from 2010 about his budding relationship with fellow Wales native Holly Goodchild (a name that seems to come right out of an Old Hollywood star magazine). This would all seem pretty ordinary if Evans hadn’t publicly come out as gay in two interviews a decade ago.


Hiding his sexuality came later, once a Hollywood movie career began. Evans, through publicists, refused to comment on his past statements and tended to avoid pronouns in interviews about his significant others, hoping to adopt three dogs and “share them with someone else” in a 2010 interview with Cosmopolitan. Slowly but surely, Evans has risen in Hollywood at the cost of the openness he so clearly prized when first starting out.

now he’s publicly out again. 

But this week [the article is from 2014], Evans finally responded to a question about his sexuality. He responded to a Women’s Wear Daily interviewer asking him if he was setting a new precedent as an openly gay action star: “It’s good for people to look at me and think this guy is doing his thing and enjoying what he’s doing and successful at it and living his life. And that’s what I’m doing and I’m very happy.” The WWD piece makes a note of the fact that Evans’ publicists attempted to keep his sexuality (which they don’t deny) from coming up in the interview, a condition both reporter and subject ignored. And while it may not have been a full-throated declaration of gay pride, Evans’ tacit acknowledgment of his unique status — in a way, he’s been out for years — signals that things may, slowly, be changing for Evans and for gay public figures.

does that ‘straight’ period in 2010 - 2014 somehow erase him being out the first time or negate his pride regarding his sexuality? no not at all. and it’s assholes like you who make it so hard for people to come out in the first place.

the industry is still an incredibly homophobic place and (straight) sex sells. i’m definitely not a fan of the het promo in rolling stone but are you seriously surprised that’s what his team would choose to lean on in order to try and sell albums particularly given how successful it’s been for his image in the past?

he is in the closet and that’s unlikely to change - at bare minimum - until louis’ free of his stunts. so no, me ‘not accepting it and bringing up 2014′ isn’t wrong it’s RESPECTING HARRY’S OWN COMMENTS REGARDING HIS SEXUALITY.

try educating yourself a little bit on what it’s like to be a queer person in a world that by and large does not value your identity and tells you that you’ll never be enough and that being straight is not only the default but the ideal. 

now imagine being a famous person in that kind of environment and keep your judgmental and patronizing nonsense out of my fucking inbox.

ok so like I wear glasses 25/8 because I am srsly blind w/o them and I won't get contacts because I'm terrified I'll poke my eye out or that they'll irritate my eyes and I keep thinking like if I was in a sexual situation w H (or anyone really) I'd have to keep them on or else I legit would barely be able to see and i prob shouldn't feel as weird about it as I do but like I can't picture fucking with my glasses on I feel like that's a total :/ like why can't I have 20/20 vision

Harry would tease the shit out of you for it. “Hey there, little four eyes.”

And if you were trying to have sex without your glasses, and struggling, he’d giggle and stop. He would reach over grab your glasses and put them on you. “Here, love. C'mon then.”

tbh the only evidence i need that harry’s a gryffindor is the fact that he kept going back to the forbidden forest after voldemort tried to kill him, aragog tried to eat him, lupin turned into a wolf and attacked him, the dementors tried to kiss him, barty crouch was murdered and turned into a bone, umbridge was kidnapped by centaurs,, boy had to die in that forest before he stopped going back

anonymous asked:

do you think the rolling stones article was embellished? like the quotes and stuff, i feel like harry wouldn't use pronouns and stuff like that the whole thing just looked a little weird to me lmao

yes. i think there were likely a number of creative liberties taken and i think the author was liberal with his interpretations of harry’s words and body language based on the media image of harry he already had in his head.

that doesn’t mean i think his team is against it or anything. i think they know it’ll sell well and are on board regardless (just look at the shit about harry and girls ben winston voluntarily spewed).

Shit Slytherins Say on Valentine's Day : #2
  • Hufflepuff: "Hi, did it hurt?"
  • Slytherin: "What?"
  • Hufflepuff: "When you fell from heaven."
  • Slytherin: "Did you just call me Satan?"
Bless you

Slytherin: “So someone sneezed earlier and I accidently said ‘shut the fuck up’ instead of 'bless you’…”
Hufflepuff: “How do you accidentally say 'shut the fuck up’?”

  • Ron: Can I borrow your potions book?
  • Hermione: Borrow?😂you have to earn🙅💦I keep grinding💯nonstop🏃‍♀️💨RIP Merlin👴History Of Magic Chapter 13🙏

my biggest pet peeve is when people write lupin as the wet blanket mom friend prefect type, like…did you read prisoner of azkaban tho??

  • literally shoots chewing gum up peeves’ nose 20 seconds into his first lesson ever
  • passive-aggressively puts snape’s boggart in drag after snape insults neville in front of his class 
  • and THEN, gives zero fucks about snape’s increasing rage as word gets around that HE DID THAT
  • speaking of gives zero fucks: gives zero fucks about trelawney’s attempts to crystal gaze for him
  • somehow miraculously bullshits his and harry’s way out of repercussions after snape catches harry with the map and has every right to put harry in detention for the rest of his life (AND he keeps composure while his teenage self is savagely badmouthing snape right in front of him, no less)
  • is prepared to straight up murder his former best friend in cold blood in front of 3 of his students and totally would have done it if not for harry’s intervention
  • gives harry the map back because, fuck it, he’s not a teacher anymore, give em hell, kid

like i get the whole tea/sweaters/laid-back-professor aesthetic, but remus lupin is a magnificently flawed and sometimes straight up terrifying character…he’s so much more than fandom’s portrayal of him as this mild-mannered, careful person, and i think that part of the reason he’s so interesting to me is that he seems just like that at first, but you have all this dark shit lurking just beneath the surface. one of my favorite moments in the entire series is when he goes into that extremely scary place and he’s about to murder peter, because you know that each DADA professor so far has had some dark secret, and even beyond the werewolf reveal, remus’ payoff is SO good. he’s such a good character honestly

  • Ravenclaw: Good morning!
  • Gryffindor: Good morning!
  • Hufflepuff: Good morning!
