Taylor Swift. How do I describe Taylor Swift?
Taylor Swift is flawless and attains no mistakes. And if she does make a mistake, likely pressured her to do it.
She has two token squad-friends of complexion, a white PR boyfriend.
I hear she does feminism commercial-grades …
Her favorite pastime is calling people sexist when they call her out for something valid.
One time Donald Trump became President. But she never spoke out against him immediately, especially during the elections when her expression was most needed.
One time I called her a white feminist … and people got pissed.
Your WCW supposes shes Regina George, is stuck in’ 09, reps girl empowerment but slutshames& wears her victim-complex like a badge
She is 27 https :// t.co/ xN6vfNBfPI

No, gravely. Enough with the Mean Girls notes to pop music’s Regina George. If you’re asking what Taylor Swift did now, besides appropriate, print, and gentrify Beyonce’s Formation, it’s that she’s releasing her brand-new album on the 10 th death anniversary of Kanye’s mother.
Whether this release date was intentional or unintentional remains to be seen. I recline more on the latter. It’s unlikely Swift would stoop to such high levels of petty, but I can’t say the same for her management/ PR team- who has the authority to influence.
Swift will release an album with at the least one diss line aimed at Kanye. The entire book itself- from the epithet to the serpent- is a whale “vague” allusion to the Kanye-Kim feud, yet apparently NOT ONE. person in the entire multi-million dollar creation/ handling/ marketing/ PR/ evidence label team noticed this and wreaked it up?
I mean adolescents on Twitter figured out the correlation after 2 seconds, hitherto grown ass civilized employees didn’t see this coming? As person with knowledge in the industry, in my country we ordinarily give a head’s up to the client when coincidences like this arise. You’re trying to tell me well-funded US companies with better trained workers somehow plummeted the projectile with this?
For those who are not aware, account names are normally who gets to choose an album’s release date. There is a lot of work and coordination needed when it comes to liberating an book, specially when a identify as large as Swift’s is attached to it. There is no actual root Swift herself chose this appointment just to be petty, but it is damn near impossible someone else didn’t notice.
If they did and they decided to go along with the appointment in order to income more publicity- Swift should be pissed and demand some sort of activity. It’s her epithet that’s getting dragged in the dirt, all so that wealthy music executives earn their piece of the pie.
If they did not and it literally simply is a bad coincidence- Swift has also continued be pissed. Her team and label should have checked all the cornerstones. They screwed up, and, again, she’s the one get hung out to dry.
I guess we will have to wait and see if Swift will eventually separate her silence- either by herself or someone for her publish a statement or changing the date- or if she will continue to remain mum, like she has with regards to racial strains in America and other POC issues.
Now, let’s talk about the ridiculousness of her diss line. It’s called . Umm … you literally did this to yourself, Taylor ???? As a rich adult lily-white girlfriend who only got her hoof in Hollywood’s door because of her rich white mothers , none forced you to do anything.
This song and its music video is just another self-serving white lady casualty narration disguised as female empowerment, and I’m not here for it. The only happen entitling about her brand-new liberation was the segment where she alluded to her sexual abuser. But the shade give at other celebs and the media who supposedly her to and be reborn as a bad girl? Nah.
It’s perplexing how she chose to make an album about years-old wealthy person conflicts, when she could’ve made an album about her sexual harassment suit, but I suspect a self-identifying feminist singing about celebrity beef is more empowering somehow.
Kanye may be trash, Kim may be trash, but Taylor is also some type of trash- only in a’ Hypocritical White Feminist All Lives Matter’ kind of way.
At least Kanye and Kim vocally corroborated Hillary when it came down to it. Taylor, on the other hand, had not been able be vexed with even a tweet, and up to now she is STILL quiet about politics.
What grates me and others about Swift( and luminaries like her) is that whenever someone has a very valid criticism about Swift- cultural appropriation, applying feminism as a marketing gambit, acting hypocritically towards people she’s had beef with- they are always dismissed by Swift and her devotees as being “divisive”, ” sexist”,” a hater “, em> or ” a bullshit fake feminist “. em>
It does not even stuff if the person or persons criticizing Swift is qualified to talk about feminism than Swift is, people will say to such person or persons,
I don’t know what the fuck kind of Instagram women-empowerment-selfie-caption these people got their explanation of feminism from, but the status of women saying she is a feminist whilst being nice to her followers does not excuse that girl from being a consistently underperforming hypocritical “feminist” who only remembers the movement where reference is positively changes a personal agenda or business.
Some followers are under the assumption that if a woman is a feminist, then that immediately shields her and her feminism from investigation. This is false.
Being a feminist means your sisterhood is all-inclusive for all women coming from all social and racial backgrounds, with a focus on issues that affect minorities such as the poorest of the poor, women working in colouring, and LGBTQ +. Being a feminist means your feminism’s purport is to dismantle patriarchy and to make focus on how firmly it has sunk its claw into elements that influence people’s lives such as consumerism, civil right, gender characters, toxic masculinity, equal representation, pop culture, etc. Being a feminist means your activism should be receptive to analysi and willing to admit drawbacks, discover, and improve, because your feminism isn’t about you- “its about” liberating your sisters from prevailing crushing ideologies, and the institutions that hold power and prescribe status quo.
Ignoring how combating racism and capitalism changes women of shade isn’t good feminism no matter how much you stand for your faves.
And they are able to stand for Taylor Swift all you want, but it doesn’t change the fact she is a white feminist who has not formerly spoke up for or fought for pitch-black/ brown/ asian/ native american/ trans/ minority girls, and that her feminism exclusively benefits HER AND HER REPUTATION, yet does nothing to liberate women working in colour from patriarchy.
You can dissect her brand-new music video and texts all you require as but, again, that doesn’t change the facts of the case Swift was born wealthy and that she got into the business because her grey household was and wealthy. Her race and social status permits her the privilege to be apolitical while LGBTQ+ women’s and women of color’s very existence violences them to be political. And while she remains comfy by she gentrifies and appropriates POC culture to benefit her brand.
You can call me and others all you want, but it doesn’t change the fact Swift “ve never” communicated out against Trump or the like, because lord knows that’d offend the big conservative fraction of her audience. Nor has she addrest up about whitewashing in Hollywood and the music industry, because lord knows that’d change her career as a white-hot woman artist whose success literally depends on the sidelining and rebuff of( tbh) more talented artists of color.
What does it say that a lot of the Taylor Swift criticizing Swift’s feminism are people of color? If you think your and Swift’s opinions on intersectional feminism and racism are better than actual people of color’s voices speaking out against self-serving, western capitalist-driven, and profit-based feminism, I’mma need to ask you what kind of drugs you’re on because, shit, they’re strong.
Until Swift actually begins to be a good feminist and stops applying the free movement of persons to cover her ass when needed and to drive album marketings, I and others will continue to criticize and call out her so-called feminism.
Basically what I’m trying to say is –
Fuck Taylor Swift and other apolitical wealthy white-hot women who can afford to be apolitical, who rarely if ever acknowledge their privilege, and who only cares about feminism when it directly coincides with their portrait and interests.
Fuck Taylor Swift and her self-serving feminism which does to facilitate liberate females, much less low-class, minority females. Fuck lily-white feminism that merely cares about giving and maintaining revenue. Fuck liberal feminism that merely promotes and protects affluent grey cis females in first world countries.
Fuck Taylor Swift and some of the followers who will protect her to the death and make excuses for her in spite of valid disapproval. Fuck people who enable patriarchy be left in ability, and people who accolade white feminists for being despite playing less than the bare minimum. Fuck Swift boosters who slut-shamed and name-called Kim and Nicki and Katy for daring to beef with their idol, yet called anyone who spoke against Taylor.
Fuck Taylor Swift, her account label, and her control unit for quite possibly expending a black man’s anguish as a space to income even more profit and precise retaliation on a feud.
It exclusively takes a Google search to see detailed, smart clauses that poke holes in Swift’s Madonna persona, and the many times her PR team fucked up. I will not elaborate further when those 100+ clauses exist and when I basically served relations in this article on a silver platter.
Confused why so many people consider Swift’s feminism is trash? Embarrassed what even is a lily-white feminist? Fucking study. Read actual feminist ideology journals, specially writes to WOC. Listen to talks and address made by POC feminists. Be unlike Swift and her PR team- take responsibility for yourself, question the situation, and be open to the potential your fave may be problematic.
Swift’s hollow one-sided feminism “mustve been” canceled, and I’ll terminate this post with this mention 😛 TAGEND
