what do you think of women who harbor attraction to men but know that they don't plan on acting on it? or who can't for various reasons? i hate the term "political lesbianism" for something like this because it implies being a lesbian is always a political agenda and that women would only have political reasons for not wanting to pursue relationships with men despite being attracted to them. like there are personal reasons for that too. are these women still lesser/not as gay/should be avoided?

You’re being completely, and I suspect intentionally, hyperbolic when you say “lesser” and “to be avoided” and even in your use of the word “harbor” here. I don’t think attraction to men is a bad thing. A thing I don’t get, a thing that’s not for me, but it’s just a thing. Being attracted to men isn’t something a woman should have to feel ashamed of. Not shaming people for their sexualities is yknow, kind of a big deal.

Any woman can call herself whatever she wants but women who experience attraction to men but don’t plan to act on it are still attracted to men. This definitionally means I’m not thinking of them as lesbians. There’s nothing wrong with being bi at all. It’s not shameful. But there’s no such thing as less gay and more gay. There’s just gay and not gay. For sure the experiences of bi women who exclusively date women and my own experiences are fairly close, especially inasmuch as dating for then necessarily means taking on the risk of some homophobic violence or micro aggressions and so on. But they’re not the -same- because we literally don’t experience attraction the same way. We don’t have the same sexuality, so why call them the same thing?

I cannot believe you've made me ship ed/ozzie by proxy. I'm sitting here squeeing about two characters in a show I've never watched because they're in LOVE and I'm so EXCITED (also so happy for you wow)

(ok but shhh tragically we only know FOR SURE that OZZIE is in love… jury’s… kinda out over Ed’s feelings… and it looks like that’s set to be the major hook to their story for a while to come… BUT STILL-! I mean, even the fact that we’ve got this actual perfectly RomCom ‘does he love me back, how can I win his heart?’ scenario playing out is, well, kind of a big deal, yeah??)

As You Are

AU. Five years after The X Factor launched his career as a radio host and songwriter, Louis Tomlinson returns as a judge. Falling for a contestant is the last thing he needs. It’s also against his contract.

The only reason Harry auditions for The X Factor is because his best mate signed the two of them up as some kind of joke. Harry doesn’t get the big deal—not until he’s faced with this season’s judges and realizes that one of them used to be his desperate, impossible teenage crush.

The blake article is not a big deal , i found it funny and kind of a common sense thought on Taylor being there as it was reported. It's kind of snarky but the point remains , who would go stay with someone during that time.
