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.
Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY. Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you ? Happy Women’s History Month I guess pic.twitter.com/2X0jEOXIWp

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.
the fact that platforms like @netflix continue to use taylor swift as a punchline for misogynistic and sexist comments, which might I add, would never be made about a male, is the reason we continue to take 3 steps backward for every step forward in feminism

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.
“It’s a joke”

When Taylor Swift stands up for herself she’s also standing up for all women across the world. How many women were slut-shamed just for wanting to date? Most women experienced this situation on some level. Respect Taylor Swift and be proud of her. She’s making a big difference. pic.twitter.com/YxNe4DHBk3

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.
Taylor Swift got more hate for singing songs about dating guys in her twenties than Woody Allen got hate for making movies about dating teens in his forties.

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.
