Have you seen the post going around (I've seen it mostly on Facebook) of Kesha and Taylor and it's saying "you can react to something two ways you can be vengeful and continue to be hurt and hateful or you can move on and heal idk about you but I'd rather be kesha"? It makes me so mad because yes, Kesha's music is beautiful and I commend her on making a beautiful album. But both women are entitled to react to their experiences how they see fit.
lmao that idea makes me soooo furious i cannot believe it’s being spread online by ppl who consider themselves progressive
- firstly it tells survivors of sexual violence that if they do feel vengeful and hateful and have a hard time letting it go that it isn’t valid to feel that way and literally fuck the absolute shit out of that mentality lmao you are allowed to have whatever emotions u please after something like that happens to u. be aware of what you say on online spaces and the people who could read it and be hurt by it u gross fucks
- also it’s so narrow minded because they are taking in kesha’s case a few songs and in taylor’s case ONE SONG and then pretending that those songs are a total indication of how both of those women reacted to what happened to them which is…. ridiculous……..and assumes that people don’t have nuance and emotional variance. we know that taylor wrote an entire fucking song about moving on and healing and Shaking It Off and we don’t know that kesha never felt (or feels) hateful and hurt and vengeful. songs reflect how you’re feeling in a specific moment and aren’t necessarily meant to indicate ur entire fucking approach to something godddd
- look what you made me do doesn’t even seem that vengeful to me and people are wildly misinterpreting it anyway and just generally i’m so sick of seeing shit like ‘taylor swift is a grown woman throwing a tantrum because people don’t like her’ as if they haven’t relentlessly bullied her in public spaces for the last 10 years for the stupidest things lmao u wanna say she plays the victim but u guys make her INTO one and then blame her for it because u refuse to take responsibility for what YOU’VE done (which is something u love 2 accuse her of doing smells like projection to me but what do i know)
tl;dr i would die for both kesha and taylor and the internet hates women (specifically angry women)
