Given that the entire premise of Larries is that they're protesting homophobia in entertainment, will be proven right sometime next month, and at that point, we'll sing their praises for outing gay men ...

I agree that, to the extent that the ship is about insisting that actual gayness exists, it is inherently objectionable. But I don't think that's the entire premise of Larries at all. I think there are people who ship them because they're pretty. And the argument you're making seems pretty weird in this context, because the actual example of fandom in the secret seems to have nothing whatsoever to do with reality, and instead to be some kind of bizarre flight of fancy involving vineyards. So it comes across a little weird for you to be fighting about how awful Larries are for insisting their ship is real in the context of something that appears to have nothing whatsoever to do with that.

I mean, I don't know if I'm missing something here. But to me, it looks the secret is about an extremely elaborate fantasy about two pretty boys making wine, not the kind of conspiracy-theory RPS that you're criticizing.
