Taylor Swift Is Not Here For Your Sexist Comments

We wish these tedious jokes were just folklore.

Taylor's comebacks are definitely stronger than a 90s trend. Netflix drama Ginny and Georgia's February 24th debut received harsh critiques from 10-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift after airing a sexist, prehistoric joke about the singer's love life.

Producing a show with such offensive remarks feels like a stab in the back from Netflix — they released Miss Americana barely a year ago, an intimate documentary about Swift's rise to fame and consequential mental health struggles.

While the show's diss might feel trivial to some, Swift has received a barrage of slut-shaming from media outlets that now rush to her defense. Since Swift's response, "RESPECT TAYLOR SWIFT" is now trending on Twitter.

Swift has been defending her dating life for what feels like forever. Back in 2014, she spoke about the double standards she faced for writing songs about her relationships. "No one says that about Ed Sheeran, no one says that about Bruno Mars, they're all writing song about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life, and no one raises a red flag there," she said on Australia’s Jules, Merrick & Sophie radio show.

Ginny and Georgia also made unsavory remarks about superstars Lady Gaga and Lana Del Rey.

For a show that's meant to be empowering, Ginny and Georgia sure does contain a lot of unnecessary criticism of successful women. Quite the way to ring in Women's History Month.
