I can only speak for myself, but that’s not why I hate Taylor Swift. I couldn’t give less of a shit about who she dates. This is why I hate her.
Also, I know I’m probably the minority on this, but I really don’t think that donating to charity and whatnot doesn’t mean you’re a good person. Yes, doing good things is one of the things that makes you a good person, but who you come off as is more important.
okay so first off “Better Than Revenge” is one song that she talks about the other girl in a… slut like manner i guess you could say by saying things like “she’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress” but i mean excuse her for having one song criticizing someone who stole her man.. I mean we all have those times where we are upset at the people who stole our significant others, and need to have a little rage. And that’s one song… It’s not like in every single song she says things like that, get real. And she does not just teach little girls that if your crush doesn’t like you back then his girlfriend is a slut or a whore. More of what she does is tell them that they don’t need a man really, (i.e. “Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday but i found some bigger dreams of mine” SHE’S SAYING THAT OH WAIT YOU’RE NOT WHAT I NEED.. I’M A STRONG INDEPENDENT WOMAN WHO NEEDS NO MAN. Heck she’s even saying that some people aren’t right for you, sometimes that’s their fault but sometimes it’s even your own fault. (i.e. “Maybe we got lost in translation maybe I asked for too much.” “Maybe I was naive.” “The shame is on me” and the list goes on…)
And she doesn’t just talk about love or heart breaks, she talks about other things too ya know. For example “Ronan: about a little boy who died of cancer, Long Llive: about the experiences she’s had with her band/fans/basically anyone who has supported her, Mean: about a critic who wrote a bad review about her, and proving how great she is and how successful she really is (and don’t even dare say anything along the lines of, “w0w wat a bitch shez calling him mean !!!1’1!1. Because no.) The Best Day: About her relationship with her mom. And that list goes on as well.
So no, Taylor Swift is not a “slut shamer.” Yes her song Better Than Revenge is, to an extent, about her calling the woman who stole her man names but that’s one song. Boo whoo, get over it, that doesn’t define her as a musician. And may i add that she doesn’t just come out and say “what a slut wow,” she writes it so beautifully “she’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress” liek cMON HOW CAN YOU NOT AGREE THAT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY TO CALL SOMEONE A SLUT LET’S BE HONEST.
