(cont) Hasn’t Louis said multiple times that he is dating Eleanor? Haven’t Louis and Harry look annoyed when Larry is brought up? The answer to all of those questions are yes. So you see, you continue saying how Larry is real and Elounor isn’t, yet all that has happened with Larry is everyone has denied it. And pretty much everyone has confirmed Elounor. To be completely honest, I feel most Larry shippers like you only still ship Larry because you don’t want to admit you are wrong
First of all let me say I really appreciate your effort. You come with arguments, many of them based in fact, your spelling and grammar are excellent, as is your use of the rhetorical question. In terms of argumentative writing this is a good attempt. You rise above your peers.
I’m afraid I cannot say I find your attempt a successful one, as there’s a few holes in your argument, most of them tracing back to one very simple concept, the understanding of which is key to comprehend why people like me, who have some life experience, believe Louis and Harry are in a relationship
ILGA Europe defines “being in the closet” as follows: “a situation where someone has decided not to be open about his or her sexual orientation (lesbian, gay man, bisexual), gender identity/expression (trans person) and/or sex (intersex person).” (x)
So, in essence, my belief that Louis and Harry are in a relationship, AND in the closet about it, is not incompatible with answering the first three questions you asked with “no” and all but two of the others with “yes”. People who are gay and who, for some reason, are hiding it, will do this either by not telling the truth, or by simply lying, and they may be lying to their families, or they may ask their families to cooperate and lie for them. They will most certainly pretend to not like the suggestions that they may be gay, or even be genuinely uncomfortable with it being brought up, because, hey, there’s a reason they are hiding it in the first place.
And in some cases they will even resort to another thing you do not seem to understand:
Here’s what Wikipedia says about it “Beard is a slang term describing a person who is used, knowingly or unknowingly, as a date, romantic partner (boyfriend or girlfriend), or spouse either to conceal infidelity or to conceal one’s sexual orientation.” (x)
Which means the remaining two questions, those about Eleonor, can be answered with “yes”, and this can still be logically reconciled with Louis and Harry being in a relationship that they are concealing.
And so, I have to agree with you on most of the rhetorical question/answer thingies you so beautifully presented (I’ll come back to the two I’d disagree with later), but cannot at all agree with your conclusion, that “most [people who believe Louis and Harry are in a relationship] like [me] only still [believe Louis and Harry are in a relationship] because you don’t want to admit you are wrong.”
Based on your ‘evidence’ there is no reason to suspect I may be wrong, because hiding your sexuality means withholding information and telling lies, including kissing people you do not like.
Speaking of which: when you know Louis kissed Eleanor, it’s because someone filmed it, and if there was someone there to film it, then there was reason for him to do it, if he is hiding his relationship with Harry by taking a beard. So question number 6: I’d probably say no to that one.
Finally, as to the number one question: did Harry or Louis ever confirm they were dating?, the answer is a very resounding YES
So the real question is: why does an obviously intelligent person like you not want to admit they are wrong? And I can only speculate towards the possible answers. The nice answer would be that you are a girl who likes Louis, and would hate to think he’d never be interested in you because of your sex. In that case, it’s probably not much of a consolation to tell you that you’d probably never meet him anyway, and if you did, that the chances of you dating would be close to zero anyway. But there are no boundaries to the imagination, so if this is the answer and if I were you, I wouldn’t let Louis’ homosexuality hinder my fantasies about him in any way. The not so nice answer would be that you are someone who has assimilated societal homophobia to an extent that the thought of anyone being gay makes you so uncomfortable that you’d rather not think about it. In that case, it’d be good to educate yourself: takemehomefromnarnia.tumblr.com
if you don’t think larry is real then you either want to fuck Louis or you’re homophobic. maybe even both! awesome!! 👍
