your tags under the little richard and prince posts are killing me, i love you. larries are honestly disgusting tho like they always were and always will be, but that person who said that what harry is doing is more difficult and braver than what people like prince, richard or bowie did was so fucking disgusting i honestly had chills running down my back, i couldnt believe what i was reading. ive never seen so much racism, homophobia, sexism and general idiocity contained in one text fuck
I can’t believe we have to endure tinhats trying to lecture the world about how a white cis man in 2017 is facing more prejudice in doing anything a bit gender non conformist than any man has ever faced before. Than Prince, than Bowie, two men who did FAR more in times of extreme prejudice than Harry has done in 2017.
And we know why they do this. We know why they need to elevate these things into something so huge.
They don’t believe men can actually defy gender norms: they literally use gender norms to reinforce their tinhat theories. Harry’s pink or Louis’s wrists exist as ways to confirm their sexuality and therefore confirm that Larrie is real. They don’t believe in men defying gender norms as a way to strip them down for all men. It’s about reinforcing these gender norms as very distinct differences between men and women and LGBT men and straight men so that their tinhat theories can thrive.
