The internet has just delivered us the phenomenal and ass-kicking gift of Feminist Taylor Swift.
And she’s taking it all on: the gender pay gap, the patriarchy and calling out sexism wherever she sees it.
The real Taylor Swift reportedly doesn’t consider herself a feminist, but that hasn’t stop a student at Brown University – Clara Beyer – from creating the Twitter account, which gained a massive 50,700+ followers in just a few days. With only 48 tweets. That’s not bad, for a feminiswift.
Beyer tweets Swift song lyrics from the account – but lyrics that have been reworked to address feminist issues. Such as, “I don’t know about you / but I’m feeling twenty-two / cents underpaid per dollar.” And, “It’s been true all along, so why can’t you see-ee-ee / Gender isn’t necessarily a binary-y-y / Not a binary.”
The real Taylor Swift’s twitter bio reads “Happy. Free. Confused. Lonely. At the same time” – a lyric from one of Swift’s hit songs 22. Feminist Taylor Swift’s twitter bio is much more amusing: “Happy. Free. Confused. Oppressed by the patriarchy. At the same time.”
