I drew this to express my feelings.
Oh my darling, insecure pumpkin.
ok i made the photoset of taylor talking about sexism in the media for my taylor blog so i’ve been seeing a lot of reblog comments saying things like ‘she doesn’t have the right to say this because she slut shames!!!’ and i just want to ask….
this is a genuine question i’m not even trying to call people out or get angry, i’m genuinely asking….
what can she do to make people forgive her for that???
because right now it seems like no matter what she does, she’s never going to be taken seriously as a feminist because of views she held when she was 17 and i just don’t think that’s what feminism is about?? please correct me if i’m wrong because i’m actually posing a question, i genuinely do not understand
and i’m not saying that she should be the queen of all feminists and that everything she says is right because obviously she still has a lot to learn about feminism and i think that taylor would admit that herself, but how is what she said in that photoset not true???
she has come out and publicly acknowledged the problematic content of her old songs and explained that she was naive and didn’t understand what she was saying when she wrote them and i just feel like holding a grudge against a teenage girl for writing about her feelings in that way is not the right way to go about things. you’re just showing other teenage girls that if they have ever in their life had a problematic thought, they might as well not bother
we live in a society where we see girls tear each other town constantly and i don’t know many high schoolers who haven’t been influenced by that at some point. i slut shamed an embarrassing amount in high school before i knew better and i’m so ashamed of it and i’m always going to acknowledge that i was wrong then. but i don’t think it means that i can’t be a feminist now??? if you don’t let people grow and change and learn from their mistakes then what do you want them to do?? do you expect people to exit the womb with a ‘fight the patriarchy’ flag in their tiny clenched baby fists???
i’m wondering if some of these people don’t realise how much taylor has changed and grown. i’m also wondering if some of these people are just determined to hate her and don’t really care to find out
I like Halloween in Australia because I can buy 5 packs of fun-size chocolates in preparation and know that at the end of the day the only bitch eating them will be me because no bitch kid trick-or-treats around here no matter how hard Woolworths tries to make it a thing
me: *stays hydrated*
me: guys wait fuck wait hold up give me like 2 seconds i gotta piss again
