"You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there."
- Taylor Swift on some peoples views on her songwriting (x)

"For years I was never sure if we were friends or not, she would come up to me at award shows and say something and walk away, and I would think ‘are we friends or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’ She did something so horrible, I was like oh we’re straight up enemies. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me and I’m surprisingly non confrontational- you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, I don’t like it."
- Taylor about a song called “Bad Blood” on 1989, likely about Katy Perry (via shakesitoffs)

"Reading this made me so sad because I love seeing you in your videos and photos being so happy and wide eyed, like the world isn’t harsh and unfair as it actually is. I hate thinking about your pretty face covered in tears, because I know why you’re crying because I’ve been in your place. This isn’t a high school thing or an age thing. It’s a people thing. A life thing. It doesn’t stop. It doesn’t end or change. People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them, or for no reason at all. It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me. But the only way they win is if your tears turn you to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing and dancing around to your favorite song. You’re going into high school this week and this is your chance to push the reset button on how much value you give the opinions of these kids, most oh whom have NO idea who they are. I’m so proud of you and protective of you because you DO. If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more. Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us. Let them keep living in darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight. Forever on your side, Taylor."

Anonymous: How does it feel to know Taylor swift is a fuckin slut?! 


a) contrary to popular belief, taylor swift has dated 6 guys in her entire life. just because she’s rumoured to be with xx and xx doesn’t mean she’s dating them. the true definition of “slut” is a woman who is sexually promiscuous (uhm, right. 96% of all famous female singers are undeniably more sexualised than taylor — there’re so many of them at the top of my head but i won’t name them here) or someone who has casual, flippant relationships. it’s valid to say that perhaps, 6 guys for a 24-year-old might be a little bit more than average depending on your geographical culture, but the thing is, is that in all these 6 relationships, she’s completely serious about them. she truly yearns for each relationship to work, and for them to last forever. she puts her whole heart and soul in all these relationships. she invested herself into them. have you listened to her songs????? basically most lyrics in her love songs radiate such qualities. (tim mcgraw, breathe, dear john or all too well are just some very limited examples)

b) also, taylor never, ever sang about sex. unlike a whole trash load of other singers out there, where the allusion to sex (or the blatant, completely unhidden reference to sex) appears in every after lyric. when does taylor sing about sex??????????? how can you call her a “slut” when she has never, ever sang or even spoken about sex before? there’re so few a-lister musicians who has never incorporated sexual references into their songs and taylor is one of them.

c) to begin with, taylor isn’t even comfortable talking about sex. when asked about her virginity by allure magazine, taylor answered “it’s fine to talk about love publicly, but i think when you talk about virginity and sex publicly, people just automatically picture you naked. and as much as I can prevent people picturing me naked, i’m going to.” so it’s actually possible for a slut to shy away from talking about sex, wow.

d) it was never on taylor’s agenda to be “sexy”. she recently said "every artist has their set of priorities. being looked at as sexy? not really on my radar. but nice? i really hope that that is the impression."

e) have you ever seen taylor’s horrified expression and her covering her eyes at the miley cyrus performance at last year’s vmas here and here? she’s obviously very uncomfortable and inexperienced with any physical expressions of sex or anything resembling that.

f) some people are saying her outfit is getting “sexier”. right. the most “sexualised” piece of clothing she has even worn is a crop top like this one here. how is that “promoting” sex????????? you might argue, the recent crop top in the vma performance (here) is sexualised. okay, it’s definitely a little more sexy then her average outfits, but just by a little. it’s considered decent by a lot of standards when compared to other artists. in fact, very much more decent, because i could name so many names. and gosh, that girl’s 24!! she can’t possibly be wearing fairy dresses and cowboy boots her whole life, can she?

in conclusion, please know someone well enough first before calling them out as “sluts”.


Unfortunately Taylor Swift is gonna get slandered for having “no” booty while Nicki Minaj is gonna get slandered for having a “fake” one. Why can’t we just be happy that these women are comfortable in their own skin









I definitely do not remember episodes of Spongebob looking this demonic.

(via i-let-the-tears-fall)



Because my cousin shared 3 rape experiences she had
And on all three occasions
She was wearing sweats and was brutally beaten

So there goes your excuse
That my tight dress was asking for it
It might have escaped your attention,
But I don’t wake up in the mornings,
And put on a skirt thinking,
Will this get me raped?
I don’t put on a tank top hoping,
Maybe this one will.


Because in school, they teach us that our bodies are offensive.

They pull us from classrooms
And hallways
Demanding if we have longer shorts,
Or even a sweater,
Reminding us that the boys are distracted,
That the boys go wild for a peeking shoulder,
Or the sight of a sun burned thigh,
Because their education is more important than ours.


Because white men in pressed suits,
Expensive watches hanging from their wrists,
Red faces glinting with arrogance,
Have more say over my body than I do.

Because those same men,
Quoting the Bible and fake statistics,
Have never shed blood,
As a twisted sacrifice for being a woman.

Because those same men,
Have never walked the streets,
Fearing for their lives,
Clinging to keys between their fingers like a lifeline
With pepper spray in their bags,
Ready for someone to feel entitled to their body.


Because when a man says no to us,
It is a fault in OUR character.
It is because we are not
Thin, tan, or perky enough for HIM.

Because when WE say no to a man,
Its still a fault in OUR character,
We are the cold, ruthless bitch,
Saying no to the nice guy,
Who offered to buy us a drink,
And Who complimented our hair.


Because a UCSB entitled nine-teen year old boy,
Can record a video
Of his plans to shoot down all the
“Blond bimbos who denied him his right,”
And then do so,
Only to have his actions excused by the media,
Claiming he was depressed,
Instead of admitting that male entitlement is dangerous.


Because I am done being silenced
And I am done being polite.
I am done sitting by
And watching
As a country hypocritically cries
Equality and justice
But doesn’t have equal pay
Lets men make decisions for a woman’s body
And blames the victim for the actions of a rapist.


Because our NO won’t be enough one day.


Because I wasn’t asking for it.


Because “Boys Will Be Boys,” is still an excuse


Because “Not All Men Are Like That,” is still a defense.


Because enough blood has been spilled.


Because I am sixteen years old, and I am so afraid, when I shouldn’t have to be.
