I’ve never really liked Taylor Swift….

I don’t have an issue with country music really as a whole. I just dislike her lyrics and the disgusting message it sends to young girls.

She’s far too fond of exploiting the Madonna-Whore Complex in her songs and videos to make herself seem superior. I’ve been battling the Madonna-Whore Complex for years now, and nothing would please me more than to see it take a permanent dirt nap.

It’s so preposterous to me that we live in such a modern age; yet, our perceptions of female sexuality are so backwards to our advancement. A woman who enjoys sex, experiments, masturbates, or doesn’t feel she needs to be married to have intercourse is not a whore. Furthermore, a virginal woman portrayed as the ideal embodiment of femininity is to say the least, disturbing.

What are we teaching our daughters, nieces, and sisters when we allow them learn from music like this?

The fact that you have a hymen does not make you better than someone who is sexually active. Your choice may be different than mine; but, a female’s value is not determined by her vagina or any other physicality.

Crap like this is okay for the doe-eyed kid we first encountered rambling on about stalking a boy named Drew, or at least something of that nature. Yet, she’s quite close to my age now, and perhaps I’m a little less forgiving. There’s a time to grow up, and I feel it’s Ms. Swift’s turn. You simply cannot live forevermore as the cliché love sick teen working through boy drama and angst in your parents’ basement.

 

In order to keep anything cultural, logical, or ideological, you have to reinvent the reality of it.

Everyone knows to register to vote before election day, but have you thought about other potential hangups? I read an article this morning over my green tea that talked about how college students were getting the short end of the stick this election year. How? By not accepting college ID’s, or allowing out of state students vote outside their home towns. Know your rights, and check the facts before the big day! You want your feelings to speak volumes in the ballads!

This May Help a Little. Do your research, though!

  • All of these images are courtesy of Evidence of Harm By Religion on Facebook. I only got maybe twenty or thirty photos in, and these are all the ones pertaining to women’s rights and feminism. I highly recommend clicking the link above! There’s far more ignorance to behold, and it ranges from religious intolerance to homophobia.
