Screw Taylor Swift’s Self-Serving Feminism

Taylor Swift Youtube

Taylor Swift. How do I describe Taylor Swift?

Taylor Swift is flawless and realizes no mistakes. And if she does make a mistake, likely pushed her to do it.

She has two sign squad-friends of pigment, a white-hot PR boyfriend.

I hear she does feminism commercials …

Her favorite pastime is calling parties sexist when they announce her out for something valid.

One time Donald Trump grew President. But she never spoke out against him directly, especially during the elections when her spokesperson was most needed.

One time I announced her a white feminist … and beings get pissed.

No, severely. Enough with the Mean Girls comments to pop music’s Regina George. If you’re asking what Taylor Swift did now, besides appropriate, emulate, and gentrify Beyonce’s Formation, it’s that she’s exhausting her brand-new book on the 10 th extinction anniversary of Kanye’s mother.

Whether this release date was intentional or unintentional remained to be seen. I recline more on the latter. It’s unlikely Swift would condescend to such levels of inessential, but I can’t say the same for her handling/ PR team- which has the power to influence.

Swift will release an album with at the least one diss trail is targeted at Kanye. The entire book itself- from the reputation to the snake- is a monster “vague” allusion to the Kanye-Kim feud, hitherto apparently NOT ONE. party in the entire multi-million dollar creation/ control/ market/ PR/ evidence name team noticed this and delivered it up?

I aim boys on Twitter figured out the connect after 2 seconds, hitherto grown-up ass taught hires didn’t see this coming? As person with suffer in the industry, in my own country we usually afford a head’s up to the client when co-occurrences like this arise. You’re trying to tell me well-funded US corporations with better trained workers somehow declined the pellet with this?

For those who are not mindful, register names are normally who gets to choose an album’s liberate time. There is a lot of work and coordination needed when it comes to secreting an album, especially when a figure as big as Swift’s is attached to it. There is no actual generator Swift herself opted this time exactly 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 increase more publicity- Swift should be pissed and demand some sort of act. It’s her mention that’s going dragged in the silt, all so that wealthy music executives earn their piece of the pie.

If they did not and it literally simply is a bad co-occurrence- Speedy should still be pee-pee. Her squad and name should have checked all the groundworks. 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 finally end her silence- either by herself or someone for her emerge a declaration or changing the date- or if she will continue to remain mum, like she has with regards to ethnic strains in America and other POC issues.

Now, let’s talk about the ridiculousness of her diss track. It’s called . Umm … you literally did this to yourself, Taylor ???? As a rich adult white girlfriend who only got her paw in Hollywood’s door because of her rich white-hot mothers , nobody forced you to do anything.

This song and its music video is just another self-serving white wife martyr narrative disguised as female empowerment, and I’m not here for it. The only thing entitling about her brand-new handout was the fraction where she alluded to her sexual abuser. But the shade flip at other celebs and the media who presumably her to and be reborn as a bad girl? Nah.

It’s perplexing how she chose to make an album about years-old rich people strifes, when she could’ve made an album about her sexual harassment litigation, but I predict a self-identifying feminist singing about fame beef is more empowering somehow.

Kanye may be trash, Kim may be trash, but Taylor is also some type of trash- simply in a’ Hypocritical White Feminist All Lives Matter’ various kinds of way.

At least Kanye and Kim vocally subsidized Hillary when it came down to it. Taylor, on the other hand, could not be bothered with even a tweet, and til now she is STILL quiet about politics.

What grates me and others about Swift( and celebrities like her) is that whenever someone has a very valid criticism about Swift- culture appropriation, exploiting feminism as a marketing ruse, playing hypocritically towards parties she’s had beef with- they are always dismissed by Swift and her fans as being “divisive”, ” sexist”,” a hater “, or ” a bullshit fake feminist “.

It does not even substance if the person or persons blaming Swift is qualified to talk about feminism than Swift is, parties will say to such person or persons,

I don’t know what the fuck kind of Instagram women-empowerment-selfie-caption these beings got their definition of feminism from, but a woman saying she is a feminist whilst being nice to her fans does not excuse that dame from being a routinely underperforming sanctimonious “feminist” who only remembers the free movement of persons where reference is positively feigns a personal schedule or business.

Some fans are under the assumption that if a woman is a feminist, then that immediately safeguards her and her feminism from investigation. This is false.

Being a feminist means your sisterhood is inclusive for all women coming from all social and ethnic backgrounds, with a focus on issues that affect minorities such as the poor, women of color, and LGBTQ +. Being a feminist means your feminism’s purport is to dismantle patriarchy and to draw focus on how firmly it has sunk its claw into factors that influence people’s lives such as consumerism, civil right, gender roles, noxious masculinity, equal illustration, pop culture, etc. Being a feminist means your activism should be receptive to disapproval and willing to admit drawbacks, read, and improve, because your feminism isn’t about you- “its about” liberating your sisters from dominant subjugating ideologies, and the institutions that hold power and dictate status quo.

Ignoring how combating racism and capitalism changes women of colour 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 once communicated up for or fought for pitch-black/ chocolate-brown/ asian/ native american/ trans/ minority women, and that her feminism merely advantages HER AND HER REPUTATION, yet does nothing to liberate women working in pigment from patriarchy.

You can dissect her brand-new music video and lyrics all you require as but, again, that doesn’t change the facts of the case Swift was born affluent and that she got into the business because her white lineage was and wealthy. Her hasten and social status stands her special privileges to be apolitical while LGBTQ+ women’s and women of color’s very existence pressures them to be political. And while she remains cozy 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 facts of the case Swift has never spoken out against Trump or the like, because lord knows that’d offend the big conservative fraction of her audience. Nor has she expressed up about whitewashing in Hollywood and the music manufacture, because lord knows that’d feign her career as a lily-white lady artist whose success literally depends on the sidelining and snubbing of( tbh) more talented creators 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 tones 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 use the free movement of persons to cover her ass when needed and to drive book 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 prosperous white-hot women who can afford to be apolitical, who rarely if ever recognize their advantage, and who are cares about feminism when it immediately coincides with their portrait and interests.

Fuck Taylor Swift and her self-serving feminism which does to facilitate liberate dames, much less low-class, minority girls. Fuck grey feminism that merely were concerned about paying and maintaining gain. Fuck radical feminism that only promotes and safeguards affluent lily-white cis females in first world countries.

Fuck Taylor Swift and some of the devotees who will defend her to the extinction and make excuses for her in spite of valid analysi. Fuck people who enable patriarchy to stay in strength, and people who kudo white feminists for being despite play-act less than the bare minimum. Fuck Swift backers 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 evidence description, and her administration squad for quite possibly employing a pitch-black man’s sting as a mode to income even more earning and exact revenge on a feud.

It only takes a Google search to see detailed, smart sections that poke holes in Swift’s Madonna persona, and the many times her PR team fucking crazy. I will not develop further when those 100+ articles exist and when I basically provided connects in this article on a silver platter.

Confused why so many people recollect Swift’s feminism is trash? Embarrassed what even is a lily-white feminist? Fucking experiment. Read actual feminist possibility volumes, especially writes to WOC. Listen to talks and speeches made by POC feminists. Be unlike Swift and her PR team- is responsible for yourself, question the situation, and be open to the possibility your fave is a possibility problematic.

Swift’s hollow one-sided feminism should be canceled, and I’ll culminate this pole with this repeat 😛 TAGEND
