What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
5 Seconds of Summer - She Looks So Perfect
My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions.
I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality.
And it will be the death of me.

Anonymous asked: it may not be an insult to think someone is gay but it's definitely rude. if you ignore what he tells you/the image he sends out then that's rude. if you force a sexuality onto someone even in your own mind, that's wrong. it takes away every other aspect of their personality and it often fetishizes homosexuality which is also terrible. so no, it's not inherently rude to think someone is gay but it is if you don't know them personally and ignore the information you do know for certain about them.
First of all, thinking something is rude and thinking something is an insult is the same thing, so you’re not being as open minded as you think you are.
Secondly, you are forcing a sexuality onto Harry also. Harry may have denied being bisexual, but he sure hasn’t publicly labelled himself as gay or straight. Why is my deduction that he likes men worth less than your assumption he likes women?
Thirdly, Harry goes to gay bars, Harry has gay friends, Harry wears “Love Is Equal” shirts, Harry tweets support for acceptance and equality, Harry buys LGBTQ art, Harry always uses gender neutral pronouns when asked to describe his perfect girl, Harry has lied about his living arrangements ever since he ‘moved out’ of Louis’ house, Harry has reached out to touch Louis in suggestive manners on a number of occasions where he believed he couldn’t be seen, Harry has made an on-camera offer to give Louis a blow job, Harry kissed a male friend on television, Harry has said on camera that he wanted Louis to be his Valentine, Harry has publicly admitted to being more attracted to bums and legs than to boobs, Harry has pretended to make out with Louis on camera at least 3 times, Harry has admitted to a fan that he and Louis are dating, Harry has mimed giving Louis a blowjob on stage, Harry holds hands with Louis at meet and greets behind everyone’s backs. Harry has verifiably slapped his cock across Louis’ face, Harry has given Louis a hickey in the middle of an interview, Harry has admitted to spending an entire day in bed with Louis, Harry makes suggestive gestures with fruit and microphones, Harry has verbalised his jealousy when other people get too close to Louis, Harry disappears on international holidays to romantic destinations at the same time Louis goes missing, Harry has multiple complimentary couples tattoos with Louis. Harry has said on a number of occasions that the media perception of him is wrong.
Now who’s ignoring the messages and images he’s sending out about his sexuality?
Fourthly, most people who believe in and support Harry and Louis’ relationship are in it for the intense love these two have for each other. The fact that they’re both nice to look at and definitely have scorchingly hot sex is just the icing on the cake. It’s about love, not a fetish to see any two cocks interact.
And lastly, I didn’t need to know Neil Patrick Harris or Lance Bass, or Zachary Quinto, or Ricky Martin, or Wentworth Miller, or Matt Bomer, or Anderson Cooper, or Clay Aiken (or Ellen DeGeneres, or Jody Foster, or Raven Symone, or Jane Lynch, or Wanda Sykes) personally to know that they were gay long before they came out. That’s really not how being gay works.
If you think somebody is gay then you are taking away every other aspect of their personality?
This is an obvious logical fallacy, but in general, when people say batshit crazy shit, I like to take a step back and try to think about the underlying assumptions—and I can’t help but think of all of the fights over the right to talk about lgbt issues in The Picture of Dorian Gray being waged in literary journals in the nineties, and the assertion that if you acknowledge the issue at all, then you are ‘reducing’ the book to that one issue—and so while it might be okay to do a feminist reading of a text, or a Marxist reading of a text, or an eco-criticism reading of a text, the only condition under which it’s allowable to talk about queer issues in Dorian Gray is if you talk about every other issue in the book at the same time—an impossible task doomed to failure, which is why critics don’t put those kind of conditions on any other kind of reading. (This argument was on the losing side, btw.)
But once again, when people say batshit crazy shit—if you talk about the queer, you are ‘reducing’—take a step back and think about the underlying assumptions.
And I can’t help but think about the overriding cultural fear that all sexuality obliterates a person’s humanity, and straight sex is ‘good sex’ because it’s sex tired to a teleology—it’s necessary for babies—and hedged in with cultural prohibitions to keep sex ‘productive’ and ‘not ‘destructive’, but because queer sexuality is not tied to reproduction, it’s not ‘productive’, it’s purely ‘destructive’, it’s ‘narcisstic’, and so queer sex becomes the metonym for what we really think of all sex.
If a person has a sexuality, then they are not human.
And in the meantime, according to the anon’s logic, people who think Harry is gay are reducing him to his sexuality, and people who think Harry is straight are not reducing him to his sexuality. Disregard people’s actual behavior of people doing exactly that—just blindly impose your frameworks like a Procrustean bed.
