We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

Did we all gloss over the fact that the entire performance of Shake It Off was about guys chasing after her/her being surrounded by boys and then she ditches the boys and goes over to her girls in the band to dance and have a fun time………..

There’s a clear message here..

it’s so funny reading people being like “i miss the old taylor swift” “she is not being true to herself anymore” “she sold her soul to Pop, no more country sweetheart”

do you even realise that Taylor Swift had already achieved the ultimate accolades? She already reached…

I’m so glad someone brought up this angle. Music critics have been saying the same for awhile now. I remember specifically when she got that huge Pinnacle Award (which had only ever been given to Garth Brooks prior btw), the New York Times said that it was proof of country music desperately trying to keep her, that maybe they were bestowing her with the genre’s greatest honor to give her a reason to stay.

Here’s the thing: country is my favorite genre. It’s what I grew up on, it’ll always be my home…but the majority of my radio station presets are also other genres. This confirmation that 1989 is going to be a pop album is bittersweet. I desperately miss the ringlet curls & the boots & Our Song on full blast on every country station in town…but while we’ve all grown up since then, she has too & we have to let her. Country is safe & she’s won every award there & she’s not even 25. Who wants to stop growing & evolving at 25? Nobody, especially not Taylor. 

Taylor Swift is the kind of artist that transcends genres & thrives on the challenge. I miss who she once was, but I still love who she’s grown up to be. I hope she comes back to country one day, I really, really do…but even if she never does, I’ll always be there cheering her on, regardless of genre because there’s nobody like her anywhere & good songwriting never dies.
