I would like to preface this by saying that I haven’t read whats been posted in the last couple hours so I don’t know if this kind of thing has already been posted or not.
I also want to say that this is merely my opinion on the situation and I just see similarities in the personalities of my parents and Zach’s. I have no idea what is actually going on in any of these people’s lives. And I’m not trying to suggest that I do.
And lastly, although I do identify as straight, I don’t feel that you fall for a gender but that you fall for the person. Yes, most people gravitate toward a certain gender, but I still think it’s the personality that you fall for. And I have been attracted to woman in the past but I still consider myself straight.
With all of that being said, if I were to ever tell my parents that I wanted to be with anyone that wasn’t a white male, I do think they would possibly have a problem with it.
I know for a fact that my father has a problem with people who choose to identify as homosexual or anything besides straight.
He won’t treat them differently in public, but he will make comments in private about how he feels they are in the wrong. (All summer he made comments about Frankie.)
Because of this, I do have less respect for him, but I do still love him because he is my father. And every time he makes a homophobic remark, I have no fear of calling him out on it and telling him that I feel he is wrong. He then comes back at me with some “well I grew up in a different time” BS, but I still stand my ground by telling him that this is now a new time and to get over it.
The thing is, most people don’t have the kind of relationship that I do with my parents. We have always been very honest with each other and if someone has a different opinion about something, there isn’t a fear of saying it.
My mother is a little more lenient than my father and has less controversial opinions, but she still isn’t as open-minded as I am to people out of the “social norm” of sexuality. (I used “” because in my opinion there shouldn’t be a norm; human is the norm.) But because her best friend, who is a woman and has been married to a man for 18 years, identifies as Bisexual, she is more open-minded.
I feel like Zach’s parents may feel the same way. They may not have an outward public issue with people who identify as homosexual, but they could have an issue with their children being anything besides straight.
Now here’s where the big difference is. I started having friends who were gay when I was in high school. That’s 11 years now that my parents have had time to get used to the idea of me bringing gay friends into their household. It didn’t take that long of course, but I’m sure they had problems with it when it first started. But like I said, they never really said anything about it publicly.
Zach has said that he’s never really had a friend like Frankie, who is that outgoing. Although he said in a DR that he loves gay people, I still don’t think he’s been around many of them. And because of that, his parents haven’t had to deal with him being good friends with someone who is gay.
On top of that, they may be having to deal with Zach having feelings for this man.
Now I do not agree with anyone saying anything horrible to anyone. Whether it’s fans to the Rances, the Rances to the Grandes or any combination in between. And social media can clearly do more harm than good when used as a forum for what should probably be private thoughts.
But I do understand where Zach could be coming from with not wanting to disappoint his parents and what he could possibly be feeling with pressure from them, if that is the case.
I also think that if he wants to be with Frankie in anyway, as friends or more, and his parents are stopping him, his parents need to back off and let him be him. Because they do love him and hopefully want him to do what will make him happy. Like I said, my parents wouldn’t be happy with the situation either, but I feel they would accept me and I just hope Zach’s family can do the same with time.
I do apologize for how long this got. If you got to the end than bravo for you, because was a long rant. And thank you.
Okay so now we have the possibility of Zach going to NY before the end of the month… But isn’t Ariana going to Boca at the end of this month? And we all assumed Frankie would be too? Zach better not be in NY while Frankie is in FL.
Doesn’t Frankie always have a huge Halloween party in NY? I remember him saying it was the party to be at.
No i dont even need a picture you guys already know what this is.
The more I think about it, I think I’m annoyed that the dumb neighbor who organized the fundraiser (such a great thing to do, and very smart to ask Zach to help out with it) ordered the wrong color hats.
I mean… I suppose you could think of it as the color hat that everyone who attended this one…
I think cost was the reasoning. I remember when I looked at costs of those hats on amazon a couple months ago the light pink ones were $4 while the hot pink were $6. Now they cost the same or so because both hats are in high demand after his order but it’s very possible that he got the light pink at the lower cost and that’s why he bought them.
friendly reminder that if we’re mutuals and you wanna exchange snapchat names or instagram or something you’re more than welcome (encouraged) to shoot me an ask
mother. friggin’. space. man.
And some people still think we’re alone here
AND SOME THINK EARTH IS MOST IMPORTANT
just think about this for a second, its mind-blowing
looks like we got a lying whore
he was so into it lol
So I was driving through my college campus today and I saw a guy wearing a gator shirt.
It took all of my willpower not to yell something out of my car in reference to Zach.
For all I know he could have been wearing the shirt because of Zach…
I’m not sure how many UF fans there are in KY. Especially at WKU. But who knows.
OMG I GO TO WKU TOO AND I SAW THAT GUY AND FREAKED
IM HAPPY FOR MORE ZANKIE SHIPPERS TO BE AT WKU 😍😍😍
Omg I want to meet you! All of my friends just think I’m this crazy fangirl. I’m like “you don’t understand!” And I’m not a student anymore, I just graduated in May. But I still have tons of friends there which is part of the reason I was there today, hanging out in FAC Lol.
How to convince people you’re straight, according to Zach Rance: Like pics of your friends ass on Instagram when everyone already thinks you are in love said friend.
