i’m laughing at all the people who don’t understand what living in the bible belt is like. You really honestly do not get it. Harry asked the kid if he liked girls. Sure, he could have not said anything. But he did. Get over it. Go outside, do something, stop complaining about every little thing. He probably couldn’t think of what to say and that’s what came out and guess what? It happens. It’s life, it happens, this is not an opportunity to have a social justice protest. The south is not what you think it is and if he had said boys, he would have gotten shit for it. We all know how socially conscience Harry is, we know he’s a good person. And yet, he does something people do every single day and you guys are coming out with pitchforks.
Pick a battle that actually matters, like the shit that happens here on a daily basis to kids that dare challenge gender stereotypes, not Harry Styles slipping something hetero-normative into the conversation and making you sad..
That was exactly my point. I may push boundaries as much as possible, but even i’m not brazen enough to ask a 3-year old child in Tennessee if he likes boys. FoxNews would be running “Pedo Harry” stories before they got off stage, and the WBC crowd would become a permanent fixture on their tour.
This is the problem I have with politically correct activists who demand a pure orthodoxy. In a perfect world Harry be free to say boyfriend or girlfriend. But we do not live in a perfect world. We cannot impose that kind of orthodox thought because there are still issues of basic safety at play. We cannot judge anyone without taking into account the social and cultural context of their actions and words. To do otherwise diminishes them, and makes us look like fools.
