How can a society hope to achieve any semblance of equality while silently agreeing “bitch” is more offensive from Busta Rhymes than Elton John? From this nonchalant compliance stems the indignation towards Black Lives Matter protestors who would DARE disrupt a Bernie Sanders political rally or the Minnesota State Fair.

For a while, like any other girl in their mid-20s, I would deny that I was a Taylor Swift fan. Even though my iTunes is littered with every single album or single she’s ever released I still said nope not really a Taylor Swift fan. But this is untrue (just like my denial of being a huge One Direction fan…). I think the reason that Taylor Swift shows up in my music library so much is because in a way I grew up with her writing the soundtrack to my life.
