Hey, Sonja, how you're doing? How was NYC? I hope it was good! So, about Kiwi: I'm seeing a lot of people talking about it, and I just want to say that it's important that we cover all the possibilities. With that being said, I keep going back to when Harry said that SOTT is the only literal song on the album. And it makes a lot of sense to me, particially because I'm a poetry kinda girl, and so is Harry. When I listen to the album, Charles Bukowski's influency on the writing, to me, is HUGE

However, I’m not excusing anything related to that, I’m not judging anyone that thinks that the song is about underage girls. I’m not, and there’s no need for that. We all should be discussing things openly, without being hateful of course. I just wanted to offer a different point of view to the discourse that I think it’s valid. I hope I’m not upsetting anyone, especially victims of abuse, that’s not my intention. Feel free to publish it if you want!! How’s the cold, btw? Feeling a lil better?

it was good! and i’m feeling much better now actually thank you <3

i think, as per usual, the discussion has gotten warped and twisted along the way and the people hurtling the cruelest accusations at other bloggers are neglecting to actually read what’s being said (again). 

no one is saying that harry’s singing about how he himself sleeps with underaged girls. i don’t think anyone is taking the line or the song period to be literally about him (the real him or his het image).

but the person in the narrative of his song is still singing about hard candy and that’s still a really big red flag and something people are allowed to be upset about without being called disgusting or sick.

no, not everyone has to agree or interpret the line in the same way. but my problem is with people ignoring the mountains of evidence linking the hard candy line to the culturally accepted meaning of the term hard candy as it refers to grown ass men sleeping with underaged girls.

you can think it’s about the drink, that’s fine. but you don’t KNOW that it’s about the drink. your interpretation isn’t the right one by default. at the very least, accept that people have a right to be upset because there’s a 50/50 chance that line is offensive AF (and as has been pointed out like a million times - even if he did mean the drink, he should have 1) chosen a different scandalous sounding drink and 2) CLARIFIED THE *SECOND* THE UNDERAGED GIRL INTERPRETATION CAME UP.

(also charles bukowski’s works are littered with misogyny so he isn’t exactly the best person to be basing anything on. the fact that his influence is all over harry’s writing isn’t really a great thing either imo.)

I don't think it's fair to particially excuse the other groups behavior on age. I'm pretty sure at least one person over there is 18 at the youngest, but anyways. I hate it when people try to blow things out of proportion publicly so they can look cool and put themselves on a moral high horse while putting other people down. It so obviously has nothing to do with doing the right thing or educating people and everything to do with gaining attention. Sorry you have to deal with that.

yeah im no way excusing or condoning their behaviour based on age. even at 14 you should still have some sense of manner and maturity enough to be civil.
mental illness isnt an excuse either. i myself am a mentally ill minor, i understand that my actions have consequences and my mental illness nor age is not an excuse for any wrong i’ve done. same can be applied to them. they should be reasonable, they should have confronted me rather than just pulling off some stunt like this. it’s unfair for any part involved

Dream Live 2017

About to head off to Yokohama for DL2017!

I have a crazy headache. I’m probably running a fever and I’m feeling exhausted…

Isn’t that the perfect way to enter a (probably) 3 hour concert!?

I’ll let you know if i survived! xD


EDIT:

The live was pretty awesome, but somehow I still don’t realize I actually went there. Particially due to my “ill” condition. 

Thankfully I started feeling better halfway through the performance and I’m actually completely fine now. Just a mild headache that’ll probably dissappear overnight. 


Okay so sadly Ive seen this panel in the hidekane tag with the commantary along the lines “lol rip shippers” which is fyi damn rude.

So I wanted to give my two cents to it bc i really really love this panel and whats happening around it. And I gonna get into why i love it so much.

At the first thought its just Hide being ridiculous to lighten the mood bc lets be real - they’ve been friends for over a decade, were in the same classes (including gym class) for who knows how many years (you know locker rooms) and probably were at least once on an onsen trip somewhen (idk seems like a popular thing to do in japan?) - in short i bet you 5 bucks they’ve seen each other naked or particially naked often enough to not be weird abt nudity around each other.
