I used to look up to Taylor and think she had my (gay) back but she wants us gone and so ok, we are worthless to her, I will go. She can keep her special Toe groupies and fuck off.
I don’t think it has anything to do with you being gay, like I truly don’t. I don’t know why Taylor reblogged that post about “300 people know.” but I do agree it was messy, and I completely understand why you feel alienated. I guess for me, I don’t understand why she felt the need to tell the secret session attendees that the song is about her “heaven sent, angelic boyfriend of a year” (girl you are 27 years old, please stop) and instructed said attendees to “get” anyone who theorizes differently. It creates a superiority in a fandom that already has a MASSIVE problem with that.
For me, one of my favorite things about Taylor’s music (and all music/art really) is that it’s subjective and people can relate it to their own personal experiences in their lives. In my opinion, her so aggressively demanding that people spread the word that this and all other love songs on “Reputation” are about Joe kind of takes that away, because now it’s like “oh, I like girls, but I can’t think of this song in that context because that’s absolutely not what it’s about” or “I think Joe is cute at best, but he’s gorgeous and if I say other wise Imma get GOT.” People are ALWAYS going to tinhat and theorize that the songs are about other people (in this case Tom/Calvin/Karlie etc), but most people would’ve assumed it’s about Joe on their own, so I really don’t understand why she feels the need to push it so hard.
