me: joins tumblr for fun
me: starts to critically analyze almost every aspect of modern society
You know, I just saw a girl dismiss the fact that Harry called pink “his color” arguing, “I like blue. Am I a guy then?”, when, first off, no one had called Harry a girl, and that was not just the point. The point is that pink is seen as a traditionally feminine colour, a colour many men avoid completely or loathe because of its inherent femininity—as femininity is unconsciously considered degrading. That doesn’t happen when a girl likes “boy stuff”, because that’s socially acceptable. But Harry is a 20-years-old guy and yet he calls pink his colour. He is fighting gender norms with these little statements. That’s why it’s important. Harry is a precious human being.
Yes! I hate it when people say that “us Larry shippers” make everything about proof. We don’t. Most/many of us are completely bored of looking for proof. NO ONE is using Harry’s gender bending as proof of anything, except the fact that he obviously feels comfortable challenging gender norms. We appreciating it, because it’s awesome, especially for young LGBTQIA+ fans who get to see it and feel more comfortable with themselves as a result. That’s why it’s important.
I remember when Harry had his 19th birthday party with the tiaras, heart shirt, pink cake and everything, and there was somebody who said that it must be ironic, a joke, because no 19-year-old boy would have a birthday party like that. When no, actually, that was just Harry, and it was in fact consistent with a lot of his behavior. He acts like he genuinely likes this kind of stuff. A boy liking things traditionally coded as feminine isn’t always a joke.

What motivates me is seeing people in the crowd and wondering what they’re going home to and what they’re dealing with, and knowing that for the time being we’re their escape.
