ok yall this is just idk
i genuinely do not understand taylor swift fans (or anyone for that matter) who have been sitting around for her entire career watching her be slut shamed for dating a couple people and shamed for writing songs about love/heartbreak. like yall know damn well that if she were a man she would be praised for doing those very things!! and YET, for SOME REASON, people think that she cannot use those experiences as a way to justify why we need feminism?????? like suddenly when she goes “i dated 3 people and became the national lightning rod for slut shaming but if it was a guy it wouldve been ok” sudDENLY HER FEMINISM IS ALL ABOUT HERSELF or when she says “i can write a love song and people will hate it, but bruno mars can write one and everyone will love it” and SUDDENLY, AGAIN, just because the woman is drawing from her own experiences means that her feminism is invalid because of that???? like i was not aware of this whole thing where you can only be a feminist so long as it is for every other woman but yourself???? that would be like me saying “my male colleague makes more money than me even though we are equally qualified, which is why feminism is important” and yall going “yeAH see, YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A FEMINIST, but unfortunately you just used an example from your own life so now you cant be one :/”
like what kind of bullshit logic is this??? all the girl has done is said that women should be treated equally to men, and has given examples from her own life and yall just come for her throat????
