They are my life and if they weren't here there would be no point for me to be living, and to top it all off im socially awkward. :D
Heartbreak girl- has the concept of the friend zone (which I highly recommend you look up why the friend zone is bullshit)
Michael posted of a picture of two drinks on Instagram assigning gender roles to them
Luke was asked what he’d do when he likes a girl he said “stare at her creepily” enforcing rape culture and making women uncomfortable
Also Michael made a rape joke in a keek saying calum was going to “rape me later”
at the very most these are just references to the boys being immature teenagers joking around with their friends.
for someone to go as far as calling them sexist, racist, or supporters of rape culture.. JUST WOW. I’ll break it down even simpler for those of you who still insist on 5sos being the monsters you’re trying really hard to make them into.
Heartbreak girl- If I remember right, Calum wrote this song when he was probably like 16 and butthurt over a girl not crushing on him back. Obviously, his views on dating have drastically changed since then so why call him out on something that happened so very very long ago.
Michael posted a picture with drinks with gender roles- haha this one actually made me laugh out loud. They are fucking drinks.
Luke’s comment- this is the one that pisses me off the most. In that interview, luke was asked what he’d do if he liked a girl. If you took his response literally, you are a fucking idiot. By “stare at her creepily” he pretty much meant “do nothing and admire her from afar because I’m too shy to act on my feelings.” NOT "stalk her and record her actions in 10 minute intervals." If you’ve been around 5sos long enough, you’d know that Luke is a big sweetheart who is very respectful and would never do anything hurtful to anyone, ESPECIALLY SOMETHING LIKE SUPPORTING OR PARTICIPATING IN RAPE. He was pretty much just trying to be funny when he said what he said.
look at all the weird obsessive text posts us 5sos bloggers make on a day to day basis. there are probably thousands. are we all enforcing rape culture because of them? Are we sexist? Perverts? Burdens on society? Politically incorrect? No. And neither is luke so stfu.
Michael’s rape joke- ok this one is offensive, I’ll give you that. But again, there is a difference between making an outwardly inappropriate or insensitive joke with a friend and actually supporting rape or justifying it. He made a crude comment. He thought he was funny. He is a teenage boy. He is not perfect.
So really, are 5sos racist, sexist, pro-rape, or culturally insensitive? Nope! Not in the slightest. Because they do not discriminate against or deliberately hate a particular race, nor do they think of one race to be superior to others. They do not believe one gender is less capable than the other and respect women very much. They do not support rape and never have. These claims are stupid, inconsistent, and unnecessary.
Why dig stuff up from 1-2 years ago when it’s irelevent now? Just because they get media attention, people are trying so hard to find a reason to hate them. They’re doing a pretty fucking bad job, too.
