Look, I found a thing.
I’m at a loss here - Taylor Swift is a talented, wholesome young woman and a great role model.
But some feminist groups have a problem with her… Because she’s a white girl who likes men.
I was under the impression that women could do whatever the Sam Hell the liked…
If a feminist tells a fellow woman what she should or shouldn’t be doing, isn’t that a tad misogynistic?

Wow, that paper didn’t even get the definition of heteronormative correct. Then again, I shouldn’t be surprised considering the partial quotes taken out of context and the gross misinterpretation.
Also weird: I googled and couldn’t find any post that said that Swift “perpetuates the patriarchal system” on Jezebel. I did, however, find something on PolicyMic with that phrase. If you read the post that I suspect they’re talking about on Jezebel, you’d see that the piece is far from a judgment of a pop star for being straight and cis (or any form of vitriol, imo). Confused how being straight and cis means you’re not acting like a “skank,” though.
Anyway, #fail on multiple points by The Sunday Telegraph Au. Some anti-feminist just wanted to make feminists seem like man-hating lesbians.
