I don't mean to sound doubtful, but how do we know that larries are truly the majority of Louis's fandom? I mostly stick to tumblr so I don't engage with anyone who aren't larries mainly because I don't follow them, so I always wondered how big of an impact we really have on a general perspective. I do realize we are a good part of it but would it be enough to sabotage Louis career-wise?
I didn’t say we were the majority - I only said we were a large portion. I have my opinion, but I don’t know for sure whether or not we’re the majority. Also, for the record, the stunt talk (and even Larry questions) don’t only annoy Larries - they annoy any fan who believes Louis isn’t straight (because there are those who don’t think he’s straight, but also don’t think he’s with Harry) and any fan who suspects that Eleanor and/or Freddie are stunts (even if they don’t think it’s a closet situation) and any fan who cares about the music, not Louis’ personal life.
As for Larries in particular though - we are the ones who led the No Control Project and Project Just Hold On, both with no support from One Direction’s or Louis’ team, and I think the results speak for themselves. Larries have led numerous charity drives for Louis and repeatedly raise $20k+ per drive. As annoying as they are, Larry-related worldwide trends have happened over and over and over again, and AIMH is the third most retweeted tweet of all time, both demonstrating our reach on Twitter. Almost every Larrie I’ve ever seen on Tumblr or Twitter doesn’t just buy one of Louis’ songs - they promote it endlessly on social media, lead projects for it, stream it continuously, and buy numerous copies for friends and family members and random people on the Internet who signed up to be sponsored. I’ve been here for five years and it’s incredibly rare to see a Larrie who is a “casual” fan. We go above and beyond. Anyone who denies that Larries and other non-het Louies are the portion of his fanbase who are the most vocal, who fight hardest for him, and who do whatever it takes to guarantee his success, with or without the support of his team, isn’t paying attention.
