Problematic reactions to words that actually came out of Harry Styles’ face
So last night I made a post called ‘THINGS THAT HARRY STYLES HAS ACTUALLY SAID’…which got a lot of positive reactions and notes, along with some pretty aggressive reactions which I feel need addressing. There was a sudden onslaught of messages, so at first I was like
So I started with a very brash anon who decided to tell me all the things that ‘HARRY HAS DONE’ and at first I was like ‘cool, another fan of all caps,’ then I read it and went through some more messages and was like
The comments that other people were publishing were a bit baffling, and some were downright worrisome. Here’s a random sample:
Hello there, @narrymusings, and thank you for starting this litany of comments I’m about to address.
Ah yes, that interview. It was indeed upsetting.
But mostly because after the only time Harry has ever addressed the Larry rumours he was crying afterwards
I agree, I do not dictate how anyone deals with rumours, but given that this denial ended in tears I’m going to go ahead and comment that it appears to have been handled pretty badly.
Well spotted, @sobadbutshedoesitsowell
They were probably still stuck on their recent media training as to how to answer any and all questions
So anyone who looks at Louis must be in love with him? Sounds about right. I’m being totally serious. Look at him. Who wouldn’t stare at Louis? Oh and I used that gif because I really wanted to.
@scorpyon51 First of all, people with Haylor manips as their profile picture shouldn’t throw stones in glass houses.
Definitely someone deeply contemplating how to make a joke out of this and not at all whether or not to answer honestly.
Nice one. You know who probably found that ‘joke’ HIL-ARIOUS?
Nouis. Because Nouis is real now.
They also probably find this hilarious:
So funny he forgot to laugh…
But yeah, you’re right. People shouldn’t assume anything. I’m sure Harry’s just being Harry, keepin us all on our toes. He shouldn’t have to identify as anything. I’m just merely pointing out that he has actually verbally himself indicated through words coming out of his face that he is neither bisexual nor bothered about the gender of a partner.
@caysbrizzle I completely agree with you and thank you for reminding everyone to be respectful. But…
Awkward because I can’t tell which side of the argument you’re angling. This is exactly what I’m saying but in different words. People take Harry seriously when it’s convenient and dismiss what he’s saying when it doesn’t fit their fixed ideas of who Harry Styles is. Like I said, you’re right - we should be respectful that none of us fucking know him or what his actual story is. I’m merely pointing out that he hasn’t used gendered pronouns when it comes to his answers to questions about what he looks for in a girl or in his own songs in quite awhile, and when he did use female pronouns he went out of his way to make sure everyone knows that it wasn’t about a girl
Got it, thanks H.
Okay, not about you. Nice of you to clarify.
WE GET IT.
‘So, Harry…Is “Perfect” about Taylor? And who is Olivia?’ -(insert your interviewer of choice)
I’M SO GLAD YOU BROUGHT UP TATTOOS @goldustlovely ! It’s actually one of my favourite topics. I mean, I literally cannot believe that the fans were so insistent that a rose tattoo fits into a nautical theme with a dagger and then Louis effing Tomlinson went and got a GD dagger on his arm in the exact same spot as Harry’s rose.
“I did it because it’s literally ironic, OKAY?!”
And all the awkward staring at each other? I mean, I know right?
God forbid they gaze at each other too long. Wouldn’t want this to happen again…
And lest you mistake this for me having a sense of humour…don’t.
Next time they have to endure ‘Never Have I Ever’ maybe someone should ask Harry if he’s ever said something repeatedly with no sense of irony and had people claim that he’s just joking (talk about assumptions…)
Oh, and to the anons sending messages too rude, ignorant and non-sensical to even bother replying to…firstly
Anyway byyyyye, I really want to incorporate this next gif. May have actually built this entire post around it
