kristína. slovakia. eighteen. i run on bad jokes and good food. i am really just a pile of sadness and fanfiction and occasional angry feminism. and tea.

i think i've come to the point in my life where i probably have to stop pretending i'm not a one direction blog. louis tomlinson is my favorite human being. i want to pet his hair and fan him with palm leaves. also, harry styles. what a dick. i love him a lot.

i also like shameless, and in the flesh, and teen wolf, and i desperately need friends. please come talk to me and i will bribe you with baked goods and nose kisses.

Anonymous asked: I'm terrified by how often the Larry side of the fandom is monitored. I guess you could say I have that prisoner mentality about discussing things openly anymore. I'm so scared all this rebranding talk & Modest being gone soon is only going to piss their team off enough to shut us up with something noteworthy. I know it's coming,things never stay positive in this band,the other shoe always drops. But I love your blog and I appreciate your knowledge about the industry.....but I'm still scared lol

Yeah, I tend to publish things on this blog with the assumption that people from their team will see it (hello there!) which is why I tend to speak more openly when I’m just privately messaging people that I’m a bit more familiar with rather than posting publicly.

That said, I don’t think it’s healthy to be afraid to talk about things in general. Whether they see it or not, if they’re in the process of a transition or a rebranding or whatever, they’re not going to stop just because people are talking about it on tumblr.

Their team isn’t all-powerful, and while they may have money at the forefront of their minds, they’re not vindictive prison wardens that are looking for an excuse to punish you or anyone else. Don’t be afraid to think and use your logical reasoning skills.

How come anons always say THIS, and not something like, “Oh my god, can you imagine if there WASN’T a huge network of Larry blogs and Twitter accounts out there, letting Harry and Louis and TPTB know just how much vocal and committed support there is for these two? Can you imagine how much more alone they would probably feel? Can you imagine how much easier it would be for TPTB to justify the closet?”

That’s the argument I want to see people start making.

Yes, yes, yes. The fact that they are watching us isn’t “scary” or “creepy” as I’ve heard a lot of people say. We are publicly posting our opinions on the internet - of course the people and brand that we are opining on are interested.

The closeting and homophobic marketing isn’t our fault. Harry and Louis weren’t heavily closeted because too many people noticed and liked their relationship. They were heavily closeted because One Direction was trying to break into a homophobic market. TPTB knew that Louis would be easily read as gay, so they took steps to prevent that from happening.

The fandom was encouraged to turn against Larry shippers not because we were hurting Harry and Louis in any way, but for three reasons that I can see:

  1. If it became widely known in middle America that they were together, that would jeopardize the band’s US success (I actually don’t really buy this point, because I don’t think an online community would easily convince the homophobic crowd of this);
  2. A fandom filled with vocal, visible LGBTQA+ people and supporters is not a fandom that homophobes want to be part of, and they were looking to attract a homophobic market; and
  3. If the LGBTQA+ fans and supporters became too vocal, Harry and Louis would be encouraged to come out, would want to come out, and would not cooperate with the closet. Scaring Larry shippers/supporters into silence removed that support, and made them easier to manage. (Thanks to @ziamstylinson4life for bringing this point to my attention).

Just imagine how important our LOUD, VOCAL, VISIBLE support must be for Harry, as he keeps taking steps out of the closet that draw the ire of a large segment of the fandom. Imagine if he saw the “Harry, Michael Sam will burn in hell sign,” but DIDN’T also get to see a rainbow “We love you Harry, no matter what” sign. Imagine HOW MUCH WORSE that would be.

Think of Louis! If he were silenced, his entire fanbase would consist of people who think that he is a homophobic person who dropped his best friend because of gay rumours. If that were his fanbase, how confident could he feel that he would have ANY fans left after coming out? Then remember the story of a young fan telling him that she was gay and that he had helped her feel so much better about herself. Remember his response, “I don’t see how that could be true.” The way he has been portrayed has been hurtful to him, and has alienated many of the fans who he most needed to keep. Imagine what a relief it must be to know that there are thousands of people who can see through the lies, and who support him for who he actually is.

This is why Rainbow Direction is so important too. We can’t stop people from slinging hurtful messages at the boys, but we can make sure that they see messages of acceptance right alongside them. Think of Harry giving a smile and thumbs up to rainbow signs at virtually every show. Remember too that Louis twice wore a rainbow shirt when no Rainbow Direction participants were going to be present. They know, and they appreciate.

There is no reason to be scared, or to censor yourself because management might be looking. Blog as if the boys are reading, and they need every bit of support they can get. We HAVE to be loud, and we HAVE to be visible, if we’re going to effect any positive change at all.

Hey Angela! I have a story to tell you. :) I’ve been debating with myself whether or not to actually share this with anyone, because it felt a little bit like something I should keep private, but with all the drama over Louis today (not saying you had anything to do with the drama, but just in general) I felt like I should say something to remind people of who Louis really is. :) Okay, so this happened last weekend when the boys were in DC. I knew that there was a show happening (cont)

2 — but I couldn’t get tickets because I’m poor and they’re stupidly expensive etc etc. Anyway, I was out and about, doing my thing, and I ducked into a little out-of-the-way coffee place that I like to go to sometimes to grab a pick me up, and I go to leave, and all of a sudden… Louis fucking Tomlinson is walking down the street right in front of me. (I basically shit my pants) He had a big burly looking guy sort of trailing after him, but other than that, no security etc, and no one (cont)

3 — had noticed him or whatever. And so, like the non-insane fan that I am, I sort of waited until we came to a stop at a street crossing, and I (super nervous by this point because WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK HE IS SO STUPIDLY GORGEOUS IN PERSON. LIKE FUCKING HELL) was just kind of like “Hey, I know you’re just out walking around, and I don’t want to make a scene or anything, so I won’t ask for a picture, but I just wanted to let you know that as a gay woman who’s struggled with her sexuality (cont)

4 — for a long time, you’ve done a lot to help me accept myself.” ((I’d like to say here that I’m totally aware that I was taking a HUGE risk by saying that to his face bc what if I had actually misinterpreted everything and he really was a homophobic dbag)) But anyway, he just kind of stopped and looked at me for a second, then took off his sunglasses (I almost passed out bc his eyes are so fucking blue shit goddammit) and smiled this weird little smile and was like (cont)

5 — “I’ll be honest, I don’t really know how that’s possible, all things considered, but I was having a terrible day and you just made it a million times better.” and I don’t know why he was having a bad day to start with, but then he hugged me and we went our separate ways, but he had this big smile on his face as he was walking away and said something to his body guard that I couldn’t hear, and I was screaming internally (and may have had a fangirl moment (cont)

6 — the second I turned the corner) and just jdgsdkjgdf. But anyway the point of this is that LOUIS TOMLINSON IS A REALLY GOOD FUCKING PERSON. Also he smells amazing and looks so good that he almost had me REquestioning my sexuality (honestly don’t know how Harry stands it). But yeah. People shouldn’t say mean things about Louis. The End! :)

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

sign this or die

PLEASE SIGN THIS. This just breaks my heart. This right here is animal cruelty! Save Arturo. sign this petition. Speak up for the beings that cant speak for themselves!!!

Angelina Jolie’s dress was an expression of her kids’ creativity: Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, sewed dozens of designs from her children’s drawings into the dress and veil.
