Swift spoke out against the critiques that she’s “boy crazy” (even though since 2010, she’s only dated two guys), and I’m proud of her for doing so.
“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that’s frankly a little sexist,” Swift said in the April Issue of Vanity Fair.
Taylor Swift’s public image has gone from “sweet girl who plays guitar” to “serial dater on the loose,” and I find it disheartening that she’s in the midst of a media frenzy for doing what girls her age do, and admirably disclosing her personal feelings on top of it all. Would she be getting this much attention if she was a 23-year- old male? Just food for thought.
