hey Emma, have you see this? teenvogue*com/story/harry-styles-doesnt-think-gay-rights-political?mbid=social_twitter I thought what he said was ok, but now I'm just confused 🤷🏽♀️
(x) I understand the points that Teen Vogue is making, but I still think Harry had the best of intentions and I understand what he was trying to say. I know there was a long discussion about this a couple of days ago and I didn’t really want to talk about it then, but I’ll touch on it briefly since you linked me to this.
I think it’s a bit unfair that celebrities are frequently pushed to be political by the general public (think about how many people wanted Taylor Swift to speak out in favor of Hillary, for example, and clearly this interviewer wanted Harry to be political as well), but then they receive a ridiculous amount of flack when they do say something regardless of what it is. Harry quite clearly didn’t want to talk about politics, likely knowing how volatile the subject is and how easy it is for something to be misconstrued, but the interviewer pushed him, and when he tried to essentially say that he feels equality for all people should be a fundamental aspect of society rather than something that is up for debate in the political arena, a lot of people interpreted it as negatively as possible.
I fully understand that Harry’s perspective is an idealistic one that sadly doesn’t match with reality in a world where the rights of LGBTQ+ people, women, immigrants, and other minorities are constantly being debated by politicians, but I think Harry definitely realizes that. He was talking about how he views those things, but I think it’s absurd to suggest that he doesn’t realize that how he views equality isn’t how much of the world views equality considering he has participated in campaigns aiming for gender equality, he posted a rainbow on Instagram the day gay marriage was made legal in the United States, and so on. A roughly two sentence long answer in an interview when he was probably not prepared for a pointed question like that does not encompass Harry’s full understanding of equality and to suggest that he’s just an idealist with no comprehension of the precarious political position of equal rights for many individuals across the world is, in my opinion, ridiculous.

Kaiba’s bursting into Atem’s throne room like ‘you are going to stand here and face me, because you left me without a backwards fucking glance, causing me unbearable pain, and we need to talk about this’.
But he doesn’t have that kind of emotional self-awareness, so he has to demand a duel instead.

Why do you think libras, geminis, pisces are multifaceted?
Well, to be clear, all of the signs are multi-faceted in an archetypal way. However, in terms of the symbols, Libra, Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius also are multi-faceted. Libra has two sides of a scale, Gemini are represented by twins, Pisces are represented by two fishes, and Sagittarius is half man, half horse. These two sides can represent two different sides that are put into a single sign.
Gemini: One side represents knowledge and logic. The other side represents humor and youth. These two sides are both tied by the mind and communication.
Libra: One side represents love and romance. The other side represents justice and fairness. These two sides are both tied by the interactions with other people.
Sagittarius: One side represents knowledge, truth, and beliefs (human.) The other side represents strength, wildness, and adventure (horse.) These two sides are tied by passion.
Pisces: One side represents absolutely knowing everything and having the ability to empathize. The other side represents knowing absolutely nothing due to the grandness of the world. These two sides are tied by imagination.
“So…” Glenn held the word out like a long note, his gaze
fixed pointedly off in the distance.
“So,” Michonne tucked a stray loc behind her ear, turning to
the young man beside her. She knew what was coming next, had expected it for
days, really. It surprised her that it had taken Glenn this long to ask. Still,
she wasn’t letting him off easy.
“So, you and Rick?” dark almond shaped eyes flickered to her
for a moment then quickly away.
“Is that a question?” Michonne asked coolly, biting back a
“Are you guys together now, or just…” Glenn trailed off
again, his cheeks flushing pink in the afternoon sun.
“Just having sex?” Michonne finished lightly, cocking her
head slightly to the side in a fair imitation of Rick.
Glenn flushed even brighter. For a man who had never been
shy about his sexual relationship with his own wife, his embarrassment burned
bright. Michonne did smile then, cutting the young man some slack.
“We’re together,” the statement was accompanied by a laugh,
the tinkling sound echoing along the porch they were seated at.
Glenn nodded, “Good. I mean, not like you need my approval…it’s
just,” he swallowed thickly, taking a pull of the glass of lemonade beside him.
“Rick’s better with you. More…human.”
Michonne’s eyebrows jumped slightly, but she nodded. “He’s
good for me too,” she said simply, reaching for a sandwich off the plate
“You’re good with the kids too,” Glenn continued talking,
his eyes trained on the porch steps. “With Carl and Judith.”
“You should take them some time,” Michonne smiled at him
again. “Get some practice in.”
Glenn sighed, licking his lips. “I have to ask you
something. I’m not sure if it’s even something people still do in this world
but…” he cleared his throat.
Michonne regarded him calmly, reaching gently for his
shoulder. “Anything,” she assured him.
“If something happens to me, or Maggie, or me and Maggie,”
he broke off again, lifting his head to look her square in the eye. “Would you
“Of course,” her answer was instantaneous. “Of course we
Glenn nodded, relief palpable on his face. “Maggie was
thinking we could make it official. She likes things like that.”
“Official?” Michonne coaxed a sandwich into his hand.
“Like Godparents. Gabriel could do a ceremony…or whatever. I’m
not sure exactly how it works.” He gratefully took a bite.
“We’d be honored,” Michonne nudged Glenn with her shoulder,
her smile widening across her face. Glenn grinned back at her, raising his
lemonade glass. Michonne clinked her own against his.
“What are you two over here gossiping about?” Maggie’s voice
cut the silence between them. The brunette laughed lightly as she approached,
Rick dogging her footsteps.
“Just having some lunch,” Michonne announced, holding up the
“You should come eat,” Glenn was already on his feet,
guiding his wife to sit in his place. He plunked down next to her as Rick
reached the stairs, leaning over the banister.
“Hey,” he grinned lazily at Michonne.
“Hey yourself,” Michonne lifted her lunch. Rick wasted no
time in procuring a bite.
“That’s good,” Rick complimented, sitting down on the step
below Michonne. She absentmindedly smoothed one of his wayward curls back as
Rick went to work on sneaking another mouthful of her lunch. Michonne reached
over to grab her glass, coming face to face with Glenn and Maggie staring at
“What?” she asked, flushing. Quickly, she handed her
lemonade to Rick. He took a sip, oblivious of the younger couple.
“It’s about time,” Maggie grinned. Beside her, Glenn laid a
hand protectively over her stomach. He nodded at Michonne.
Michonne laughed lightly, returning her attention back to
Rick. “Maggie and Glenn have something they want to ask us. I already said yes.”
“Of course you did,” Rick grinned at her, reaching for her
hand. “Maggie asked me already. I said yes too.” He dropped a kiss on her palm.
Michonne leaned into him, draping herself over his shoulder
as he continued eating.
“Nice day,” Glenn observed, smiling at the sight of the town
in front of them.
