Could the rumors be true?
I wasn't always a fan of One Direction.
(I know, what the heck is wrong with me?)
The truth is, I've only ever been a fan of Harry Styles.
The guy is an amazing talent and seems like one of the most down to earth celebrities out there.
So, honestly, who cares if Harry Styles is gay or not?
Since I'm a married, middle-aged woman, I don't truly care what anyone's sexuality is as long as they are happy, generally a good person and not murdering people.
But ... Harry seems different.
And I'm a writer, so Harry's making me look kind of bad. Thanks, guy!
While Liam Payne said "female" as his first answer, Harry Styles shook his head and said, "Not that important," instead opting for a "sense of humor".
This obviously wasn't his "coming out" interview, but it did give me pause to hear him say that.
2. Is it possible Larry Stylinson have matching, coordinating tattoos?
Ladies and gentleman, believe it or not, there's a fan site dedicated to the tattoos of both Harry and Louis. I don't know why I'm surprised; these Larry fans are hardcore!
Harry Styles has over 30 tattoos (beating my 19 so I'm going to have to catch up!), so I'm not going to go into each and every one of them. You can go here or here if you're interested in the full on analysis.
BUT, there were a few that caught my eye.
LiveJournal (A collage of tattoos — Harry on the left, Louis on the right)
Apparently, according to the people who believe Larry is real, "Hi," and "Oops" were the first words they ever uttered to each other when they met. And as you can see for yourself in the above picture, a lot of the tattoos do look like they are ones that match.
Could it be a coincidence? Of course. Or maybe Larry is real ...
This might sound strange so please, stay with me here.
During the band's Where We Are tour in 2014, a fan threw a rainbow colored Build-A-Bear on the stage and during the rest of their time touring, it became their unofficial mascot.
The bear even had its own Twitter account (which has since been deactivated by the bear himself) that was supposedly run by the band. However, Larry "shippers" believe it was run by Harry Styles and Larry Tomlinson, sending cryptic and secret messages to fans about their hidden love affair.
And then another bear appeared, a smaller one which fans dubbed "Sugar Baby Bear."
As per Urban Dictionary, a sugar baby is a young female or male who is financially pampered/cared for by a sugar daddy or sugar mama in exchange for companionship (i.e. sexual favors).
This whole bear thing just added to the rumors that Larry is real.
The Radical (Rainbow Bondage Bear)
According to an essay by Daniella Lollie on The Radical, she states:
Is it just me or is this conspiracy theory thinking more elaborate than Area 51?
(Please tell me you know what Area 51 is or I'm going to feel so old!)
4. Harry Styles may be a beard for some closeted female celebrities.
(Harry Styles with Taylor Swift)
In October 2012, Harry Styles started dating singer Taylor Swift. There have also been many conspiracy theories about Taylor Swift being gay (and closeted), and a fan scandal called "Kissgate" which refers to blurry photo that supposedly shows Taylor kissing squad member Karlie Kloss has only added to rumors. (Note: Swift denied Kissgate.)

So what's a beard?
According to Urban Dictionary: "Any opposite sex escort taken to an event in an effort to give a homosexual person the appearance of being out on a date with a person of the opposite sex."
In a blind item, the insinuation is that management put the two together since they're both gay, and being with each other would make the world believe otherwise.
Because we are so easy to fool, right? I'm on to you, people!
7. Harry Styles Instagram has been more colorful as of late.
You aren't automatically gay when you post pictures of a rainbow and a rainbow flag, but it does show he is in full support of the community and perhaps once again, sending cryptic messages?
Come on, Harry! Talk to us. This is a safe place!
The song "Sign Of The Times" has some truly beautiful lyrics.
Here's one verse:
"Just stop your crying, it's a sign of the times
Welcome to the final show
Hope you're wearing your best clothes
You can't bribe the door on your way to the sky
You look pretty good down here
But you ain't really good"
As dark as my analysis of this may be, go with me here.
It feels like it may be what an LGBT person may feel like after they die.
In most religions, it's considered a sin to be gay, so even "bribing the door on your way to the sky" wouldn't work.
The final show could mean a funeral.
Looking pretty good down here could mean how most people are buried in their "Sunday best" but Heaven forbid (no pun intended) you're gay, it wouldn't matter.
In another verse:
"If we never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets? The bullets
We never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets? The bullets"
These lyrics honestly gave me the chills when I really sat down to listen deeply.
All I could think about were the images released after the Pulse shooting in Orlando, Florida, which was a popular gay nightclub. Because Harry uses the term "we" when singing "Why are we always stuck and running from the bullets?" Is that Harry telling us he's gay or bisexual?
Listen to "Sign of the Times" for yourself...
Again, these are just my observations, even though I secretly do ship "Larry Stylinson" if they want to be together. As long as Harry and Louis are happy, then so am I.
Love is love is love.
