The only reason I am writing about this is because I am 100% done with hearing about this. With everything going on in the world right now why on Earth is everyone taking about something as ridiculous as a celebrities friendship intentions. Are we Americans that much stuck in a pop culture bubble that we can’t talk about more serious issues. There are plenty of them: immigration, saudi Arabia vs. Iran, ISIS, Palestine vs. Israel, North Korea vs. South Korea…. If the only way to talk about serious issues is to get past stupid topics like should females hang out in public as groups over with then fine, let’s talk.
First off, the issue of feminism should probably be taken off the table. The spirit of Feminism is about female relationships compared to male. It has expanded to include other relevant social issues, but I sincerely doubt Taylor Swift was thinking about the female agenda when she was hanging out with friends. Not everything a person does is about some great social presentation, even celebrities want comfort. Furthermore, if you want to bring up she should be conscious of it as a celebrity, then you are linking female to female squabbles as a public presentation that involves men. It is common knowledge that when two females fight, the men try to stay out of it. If it doesn’t involve you, don’t throw yourself into the fight. That’s common sense.
Secondly, I can see why many people are making this an argument of inclusion vs exclusion. It make sense that a group would cause that mentality. But come on people, friends like to hang out together and do things friends would. Yea, sometimes people will want to be part of a friend group and not be accepted. I can tell you from personal experience it sucks. That doesn’t always mean it’s intentional or due to some hateful reason. Sometimes you just don’t click with the group of a whole, or sometimes you are just a floater. Who cares. Part of growing up is realizing that life is gonna suck sometimes. Taylor Swift isn’t being the stereotypical mean sorority girl here. She is just being a twenty year old and hanging out with her friends.
Thirdly, EVEN IF IT’S FOR BUSINESS THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S A BAD THING… It would just mean that she is a smart business woman. If that’s the case, go T Swift. Go make bank and show those who were assholes to you that you are a smart independent woman.
Now that I got that off my chest. Can we go back to talking about more relevant issues, America? I can even suggest the upcoming Presidential election as a topic.
