Now, let’s talk about the ridiculousness of her diss track. It’s called “Look What You Made Me Do”. Umm… you literally did this to yourself, Taylor???? As a rich adult white girl who only got her foot in Hollywood’s door because of her rich white parents, nobody forced you to do anything.
For me, my Christianity is based on love. And it’s based on personal convictions. And personally, I’m a badass feminist.
Know when to speak up. Your friends’ sexist joke isn’t funny and neither is his racist one, so call him out on both.
First and foremost, never have I posted my thoughts on a platform such as this.
It’s as if people have taken the #MeToo movement and twisted it backwards and sideways and so many directions that it’s stopping them from focusing on what it really is: a movement against sexual harassment and assault.

A man wearing a Trump hat held a door open for me after the march. He asked me where I was from and why I was in town. My first instinct was to lie. I would have gotten away with it. I want to be an intersectional feminist. I want to be good. I want to do what’s right.
People can have a hard time seeing that introversion and its particular set of behaviors is often conflated with coldness. This is a label especially reserved for a particular taxonomy of women. You don’t hear folks talking about cold men. They’ll call them the “silent type”, “stoic”, “mysterious.”
You might think you have equal rights, but feminism is still needed until every woman in the world can feel they also have equal rights and unfortunately we’re not even close to that.
We need Feminism now more than ever in a time when Feminism is being the most criticized. We need men on our side to understand women’s issues.
