What is it about Taylor Swift that inspires such extraordinarily bitchy and unsavoury reaction? Judging by social media over the past 24 hours, you’d be forgiven for thinking she’s a conniving, selfish, ruthless psycho marauding around breaking hearts as fast as she rakes in cash. She’s been branded a slut, a whore, a b*tch, and a publicity-mad, man-hunting hound after being caught kissing British actor Tom Hiddleston.

She’s an incredibly talented, phenomenally successful singer-songwriter who’s sold more than 40 million albums and 130 million single downloads.Her gigantic award haul includes 10 Grammys, one Emmy and 22 Billboard Music Awards. She’s beautiful, intelligent, hard-working, clean-living and more than lives up to the title of her 2nd album Fearless as we saw with her heroic and ultimately triumphant stand against Apple over the way it financially abused recording artists via iTunes. She’s an incredibly talented, phenomenally successful singer-songwriter who’s sold more than 40 million albums and 130 million single downloads.

She’s great to her fans, regularly sending them holiday gifts by post and in person, and even inviting them to her home to listen to her new music. She’s a serious philanthropist, donating millions of dollars to help fund arts and education projects, and to help victims of natural disasters or sexual and racial discrimination.

I’ve met Taylor a couple of times at parties and she was extremely polite, effortlessly charming, very natural and great fun. No wonder that the Hollywood Reporter described her as ‘the best people person since Bill Clinton.’ Nor that Michelle Obama said of her in 2012: ‘Taylor has rocketed to the top of the music industry but still keeps her feet on the ground, someone who has shattered every expectation of what a 22-year-old can achieve.’

So why all the constant ferocious attacks on her?

Taylor herself told GQ recently: ‘I monitor what people say about me and I see a theme. In 2010 it was, “She’s too young to get all these awards. Look how annoying she is when she wins. Is she even good?” Then in 2013 it was, “She just writes songs about guys to get revenge. She’s boy-crazy. She’s a problematic person.”'

Her latest ‘crime’ was to be caught in flagrante with Tom Hiddleston on a beach. They’re both single people, but the global vitriol poured on their heads has been extraordinary. They were accused of deliberately staging the photos. She, apparently, wanted to taunt previous boyfriend Calvin Harris and ‘rub his nose in it’. He to promote his chances of becoming the next James Bond by portraying himself as a seductive ladies man.

In a separate attack, Kim Kardashian branded Taylor a liar for saying she didn’t know Kanye was going to include her in his song Famous which included the repulsively misogynist line: ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b***h famous.’ Any self-respecting married woman should surely be far more agitated about why her husband wants to write songs about desiring sex with other women?

Last night, Taylor’s management issued a withering statement reiterating her denial of knowing anything about Kanye’s sexist claptrap and saying she felt ‘humiliated’ by the song. It added: ‘Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West and now Kim Kardashian will not just leave her alone.’ I think I know why. It’s that j-word again: jealousy.

My response, therefore, to Kim Kardashian and all the other poisonous, green-eyed monsters out there currently trying to tear down Taylor Swift is simple: back off you sad, pathetic, envy-ridden people.

She’s a fantastic example of what every young women should strive to be: a true feminist whose talent, success, work ethic, behaviour and personality are all hugely positive role model messages. I certainly know which modern female icon I’d prefer my 4-year-old daughter to want to emulate when she grows up and it isn’t the talentless, bird-flipping stripper.


Do you think Taylor Swift gets an unfair and sexist amount of hate due to her reputation of dating different dudes all the time? Do you respect her as a feminist icon?

Which Taylor Swift Are You?



Result: Country Swift

You're an emotional soul who just wants to find her Prince Charming. Hang in there, girl - the road ahead is a long one - but at least its inspired many a heartfelt hit.

I think of Taylor Swift like some sort of archon of the culture industry before I think of her as a "feminist icon." Sorta like Beyonce--bloodthirsty capitalist, abundant social nous, evidently talented, great work ethic, etc, but don't associate her much with empowering women and girls. Don't really care about who she dates.

Also, I live in a weird cultural bubble where these people don't exist most of the time, and it's not ever going to be the case where I'll interact with them personally on any meaningful level, so wth am I talking about any of this for.

It just takes such relatively little popularity to become Taylor Swift. No one likes Taylor Swift, probably less than 1% of the population is truly a Taylor Swift fan. Same is true for any popstar or celebrity.
But having .1 percent of people being your fan is good enough to dominate pop culture headlines and such.
Most of us are still gonna not like and even strongly hate whatever the current pop god is

pretty much this yeah.

i do think there is a very dumb double standard -- like obviously no one whines about white dudes singing too many songs about girls, right? and that's bullshit.

but you know, calling her "a fantastic example of what every young women [sic] should strive to be" is a classic example of feminism as "grievances of privileged white women". smh.

1% is a lot sure, but way less than 99%
And I think you are overestimating the value of people you know in context of overall population.

I'd just like to say that the kinds of people who'd cynically explode about tabloid stunts are exactly the people who deserve tabloid stunts.


I don't know anything about T-Swift except from the creepin' UGers. Asking if she is a feminist icon defeats the purpose of her being a feminist icon. So yes, but no.

Nah, you just have a cringeworthy understanding.

Value refers to the amount, not to people. A number, which represents a value, when dealing with numbers. value may refer to several, strongly related notions: The value of a variable or a constant is any number or other mathematical object assigned to it.

Not really a feminist icon at all

She's just a musician out to make money and live a happy life, she has no higher calling as a feminist or politician imo.

but what % of the population are "pop culture headlines" even aimed at? that's the real question. it's a mistake to assume that 100% of the population care about popular music and/or celebrity gossip -- so what really matters is not 1% of the population relative to 100% of the population, but 1% of the total population relative to x number of potential consumers -- this is the real "value in context".
