I was requested to comment on this and I just want to point out how sad it is that many Zayn girls have no idea who the real Zayn is…and would stop supporting him if they found out he likes boys. It’s preferred for him to be a womanizer than to be gay/bi and in a committed, loving relationship…
The point here is not to argue about Zayn’s sexuality, just to show that some fans only love him…because…he’s straight?!? Or better even, because he’s a ladies’ man and…they have a possibility to fuck him?!!? Is that it? Wow, how realistic of a goal to have.
We all know these girls exist, it’s no surprise, but I was asked to comment on it and I guess I should, because some people don’t realize how much homophobia [and entitlement] exists in this fandom.
Being a ‘fan’ of someone doesn’t mean you want to fuck them. Because that is what it comes down to. Some girls don’t want to see Zayn settled down with anyone, at the end of the day. Well, mostly a boy, but even a committed relationship with a girl annoys them. Because they want to fuck him. And somehow, if he’s fucking around instead of in a committed relationship [with a woman, a man, or a unicorn, doesn’t matter] their chances increase!?!?!? That must be it. There is no other way around it, is there?
I just wish people would separate Zayn Malik the superstar from Zayn Malik the person. You can fantasize about the superstar all you want. Reblog cute pictures, dream to meet him, hang posters on your wall. But the person Zayn Malik does not belong to you. He doesn’t owe you anything. He doesn’t owe you to stay single, or fuck groupies, or get married, or anything. He owes you to be professional and sing well in his concerts. That’s all.
If he’s gay, and you hate him for it, then I don’t know what you are but you are not a fan. If he is in a committed relationship with a girl, and you hate him for it, read above. If he’s indeed a womanizer [nothing wrong with that if you are single, btw] and you somehow meet him and he rejects you and you hate him for it, re-read above.
Being a fan of someone, or loving them for that matter, means you love all of them, and most importantly, you love the real them. Zayn Malik is handsome. Teenage girls [or boys, or adults, or anyone] are bound to fantasize about him. I get it.
But you need to realize that you have 0,0000001% of a chance to meet him, and if you do, it will probably be for a few seconds. You are a fan. You will probably meet him at a concert, or a signing, or even out and about. And he’s nice, he’ll talk to you and take pictures with you. But he’s not your buddy. He’s a celebrity, and most importantly, he’s a person. He has a life that revolves around people (!) who are not you. You are a fan, he is definitely grateful for your support, but he doesn’t owe you anything [anything other than being a good and professional singer blah blah, I said that above].
So yes, carry on fantasizing about him, that’s harmless. But if you actually believe that he is a womanizer [it doesn’t matter here whether he is or isn’t] and when he meets you he will fuck you and then he will actually fall in love with you and will be the most envied princess in Genovia, all I have for you is this emoticon: o_0
No matter what his sexuality or relationship status is, even your chances of MEETING him are slim, let alone actually talking to him for more than a few minutes.
So just…let go of the idea that you are going to get married to him, please? Because yes, it does happen sometimes that celebrities meet ~regular people and fall in love, it’s not impossible, but thinking about it as an extremely probable option [‘oh, the only thing separating us is Perrie!!!’, ‘oh, the only thing separating us is that I live in Australia, if I met him he’d fall in love with me immediately!!’, ‘Oh, the only thing separating us is that I’m 13, oops!!! But when I grow up he will totally fall in love with me!’’] is a bit –no, extremely scary to be honest.
No, the actual thing separating you and Zayn is that you don’t even know him. He’s a singer offering you his talent and for some reason you think you are entitled to make personal choices for him and say ‘He should definitely drop Perrie and fuck groupies instead’ and ‘omg he is not with Liam he is not gay!!!’ when in the back of your mind, you are thinking of your own Disney fairytale with Zayn as your prince. Zayn is not your prince.
He is Liam’s prince [sorry, I slipped :P].
So if he’s with Perrie [again, the actual truth is not relevant in this post], let him be with Perrie. If he’s with Liam, let him be with Liam. If he’s single, let him be single. If you have a problem with his potential bisexuality or homosexuality or whatever, go educate yourself against homophobia.
Grow up. Learn to love and accept. Better yet, learn that there is nothing about a homosexual person that you need to ‘accept’ because there is nothing wrong about a homosexual person.
Learn that celebrities don’t belong to you. Learn that you are most likely never going to talk to them for more than a few seconds. It’s upsetting, isn’t it? But it is the truth, and the most beautiful thing to do in life is to embrace and to crave the truth.
