Taylor Swift + Being her HBIC self at Billboard Music Awards 2013
remember this shady bitch omg.
Harry Styles is already dating someone after he split with Taylor and you don’t hear anyone saying that he ‘dates too much’ or ‘is girl-crazy’ but if Taylor was dating someone already the tabloids would go crazy calling her a slut who can’t spend one day without a boyfriend
this is so fucked up lemme tell ya
and they are fucking ignoring the FACT that Taylor was actually single for almost 2 years.
The notes! HOLY FUCK!
omg the notes.
Like no other person
The problem is that Taylor Swift — being a celebrity who is open about her person life — does this in public. Only I don’t see that as a “problem.”
The patriarchy divides women into the “good” ones who keep their legs crossed, waiting for a man to scoop them up, and the “bad” ones who open their legs to as many men as they want. Female pop stars are this virgin/whore dichotomy writ large. Katy Perry and Rihanna are “sluts.” Miley Cyrus was a “virgin” until she started acting like a “slut.” Taylor Swift, with her pretty blonde hair, A-line dresses and cute matching purses, is supposed to be a “virgin” and now everyone is freaking out that she’s not playing by the script.
fuck all this “be a role model” bullshit placed on celebrities. it’s not their job to raise your nasty ass kids.
Too long didn’t read?
It’s basically me addressing the various arguments I’ve been seeing recently about why people hate Taylor Swift. My annoyance with this whole thing has nothing to do with being her fan (I’m not even that big of a fan of hers) and everything to do with the inherent sexism that is still eminent in our current society among both sexes.
