I hope the counselors at The Trevor Project are educating them that their safe spaces haven’t been taken away. But, that assuming someone’s sexuality and relationships, when those people have told you differently, is harmful and bullying behavior.
The 1D fandom IS a safe space for all. And, honestly Larries, those of you who are adults and know better should speak up. Many of you know Liam wasn’t being homophobic about the rainbow flags. Many of you know too many rainbow flags at 1D concerts ARE about Larrie, you’ve expressed those concerns yourselves. To allow younger queer kids, who may have less frame of reference, to think that what Liam said was homophobic and without context, and that 1D fandom is not a safe space for them, is cruel, IMO.
