"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.

Knowing my fat ass if I were Belle I would have tried a hell of a lot harder to eat all those foods during Be Our Guest

I mean look at this shit 

Bitch just grabbed a cherry 

“Try the grey stuff it’s delicious” Bitch please pass me the fork 

This scene is visually stunning, but my drunk ass would have climbed the table for some champagne  

Don’t even get me started with the live action version I MEAN LOOK AT THIS
