Taylor Swift Vanity Fair

“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 is frankly a little sexist.”

– I would like to pretend that Taylor Swift was inspired to talk sexism in Vanity Fair because read my essay on The Frisky called “Taylor Swift Is Allowed To Have A Lot Of Boyfriends, OK?” It was about about how women like Taylor Swift, Carly Simon, and Nora Ephron who write about their relationships and emotions are just doing the same thing that guys like Woody Allen and Kanye West do. But women get slammed as overly-attached psychos for doing it while for the dudes it is just “art.” She probably didn’t read it (I can dream, can’t I?) but I’m glad Taylor spoke up about this issue herself!
