reckless-lovee:

100% agree with this but like 90% of her songs involve her putting down other girls..

wow!!! okay!!! lets go through ALL of her released songs since you are unable to listen to anything on her album besides her popular/most criticized songs

debut album: taylor swift:

  • tim mcgraw: she doesn’t reference another person in this song besides the two people in a relationship
  • picture to burn: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • teardrops on my guitar: clearly she doesn’t tear the other girl down, she is jealous of how her male friend has a girlfriend and wishes it was her instead, she never puts the girl down in a negative way
  • a place in this world: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • cold as you: this song is about how horrible the male was to her while they were in the relationship, no girl is referenced in this song
  • the outside: no girl is referenced in this song
  • tied together with a smile: about a friend who struggled with bulimia, no tearing down at all in this song
  • stay beautiful: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • should’ve said no: ok so there is a female referenced in this song, but only because of what the male chose to do and cheat on her, so she is NOT blaming the female for the males wrong-doing, so no shaming
  • mary’s song: about two people who have been in a relationship for their entire lives, and no female tearing down here
  • our song: no other girl is referenced in this song

0 songs having girl shaming from this album, next album

fearless

  • fearless: no female tearing down, clearly about a relationship between TWO people and how she is head over heels because this is something that’s she’s dreamt of her whole life
  • fifteen: the only reference to another girl/woman in this song is “laughing at the other girls who think they’re so cool” but its not shaming because she knows that she is not in the “cool” crowd and not tearing them down, only saying that they are the cool people at school and she and her friend aren’t, she explains in the song about how shes trying to find herself and what she must do and how “but in your life you’ll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team”
  • love story: no other girl is referenced in this song (inspired by the story romeo and juliet)
  • hey stephen: not a girl tearing down song, she clearly says “well all those other girls are beautiful, but would they write a song for you” so thats not tearing down?
  • white horse: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • you belong with me: since this is the song that EVERYONE complains about, but all she says is that “she wears short skirts, i wear t-shirts, she’s cheer captain and im on the bleachers” shes clearly saying that she isn’t the males “type” and that there are many things that would detract the male from seeing her as someone he might like, and that the other girl is someone who is more attractive on the outside than taylor. i understand the video expresses a “angel/devil” thing, so i get the girl tearing down part there
  • breathe: about her friend who isn’t there anymore and she needs to accept that but she doesn’t know how, no shaming here
  • tell me why: no girl is referenced in this song
  • you’re not sorry: no girl is referenced in this song
  • the way i loved you: no girl is referenced in this song
  • forever & always: about joe jonas who, everyone knows, he broke up with her over a VERY short conversation on the phone, so no girl shaming
  • the best day: about her mom and how she thanks her from day 1 that she’s been there through everything to help her and guide her through whatever dreams that she’s wishes to do in life
  • change: about her record label, no girl shaming here

new total: 1

speak now

  • mine: no other woman is referenced in this song, only about a relationship between two people
  • sparks fly: no girl is referenced in this song
  • back to december: no girl is referenced in this song, only about her and her relationship with taylor lautner of how it’s HER FAULT that she ended the relationship with him and how she wish she could go back and change her mind
  • speak now: not even about her, it’s allegedly about hayley williams and how she liked someone but was afraid to tell the person because he was getting married, but she is referencing a girl and “shaming her” by saying that she is getting married to the person she likes and is constantly complaining about her outfit, personality, etc. ok, i understand this song is girl shaming
  • dear john: about john mayer and how he treated her badly while they were in a relationship, there is no shaming to a woman in this song, only that the other women that he dated and how he mentally abused them in a way “All the girls that you’ve run dry have tired lifeless eyes”
  • mean: about a man who is a music critic who said that taylor can’t sing, there is no girl shaming in this song
  • the story of us: about a relationship, no girl shaming here
  • never grow up: no girl shaming; about her brother and herself explaining that she wishes she’d never grown up and wishes she was still a child
  • enchanted: no girl shaming
  • better than revenge: “shes better known for what she does on the mattress” is girl shaming considering that shes degrading her for saying she is only known for sex, ok
  • innocent: about kanye west, not a tearing down song at all, and last time i checked, he’s not a woman? 
  • haunted: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • last kiss: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • long live: about her band and her fans, no shaming is in this song

red:

  • state of grace: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • red: no other girl is referenced in this song
  • treacherous: once again, no other girl is referenced in this song

if you didn’t want to read all of that, i added it all up for you:

total girl referenced: 9
total girl shaming: 3

so clearly, 3 songs out of 54 released songs are shaming women, and thats no where near 90, thats exactly 5.56%. all of the songs that are shaming women are from the time that she didn’t understand feminism. wow you must be really bad at math or your facts are wrong…

This is killing a human life.

At 23 weeks chances are good that this fetus is being removed because it is:
a) Already deadb) Suffering abnormalities such as it developed no brain, or had a serious genetic condition that would kill it quickly. c) Was actively dying (not dead yet but would be within a few days, 100% guarunteed, 0 chance of saving it)d) Was actively killing the pregnant person.
Late term abortions, as shown here, make up only 1.5% of all abortions. The above four reasons are the only reasons such procedures are performed. Almost every abortion performed after 20 weeks is done on a wanted pregnancy. So you know what that means? You’re calling people who miscarried murderers. You just implied people who had a miscarriage or would have died murderers. How dare you call yourself pro life for that.
Now for the fun fact: They used to use a different procedure for these abortions in which they removed the fetus intact and allowed these people to grieve for the intact fetus, have pictures, etc. Pro lifers decided people losing a wanted pregnancy should not be allowed to grieve an intact fetus and we were left with this.
Congrats. Your movement is the reason they use this one now when people lose a wanted pregnancy late into the pregnancy. Your movement is intentionally making it harder for people to recover from the lose of a much wanted pregnancy. It’s your movement who left grieving people with this instead of allowing them something easier to deal with, something that would let them hold their deceased fetus.
Congrats. If you think you were ‘saving’ something think again. You’re hurting born people. You’re hurting people who lose a wanted pregnancy by shaming this abortion procedure. And you’re movement is the reason this is procedure doctors are forced to use now. You’re probably an awful and mean person to tell people losing a wanted pregnancy that they’re killers.
