The grammys are probably old news already, since they were ya know, two days ago, but there's one topic still on my mind. Maybe it's my feminist self, maybe it's my Taylor Swift bias, maybe it's this post by another Taylor that had me yelling "preach" the whole time. (except I read it in the middle of the break room at work, so it was more of a silent yell)


In any case, if you've heard anything about Kanye West in the last couple of weeks, you know about his highly misogynistic new song Famous, which Taylor is a subject of. When the song leaked, most everyone was defending her (which I adored) and when she won album of the year she took her speech as an opportunity to stand up for herself in the classiest way possible.

So why is it that the majority of articles I've seen called her speech a "diss?" 

Why is it that people were getting genuinely mad at her on twitter for being excited for her friend Ed Sheeran when he won?

Why are people so fickle, turning on something or someone at a moment's notice, for no real reason? Do you really dislike successful, genuine women that much? Really.

And to any man who thinks they can undermine a woman's accomplishments and claim them as your own, you can't.  Arrogance won't get you very far, my dear.

Like the saying goes, "Behind every successful woman is herself." And the best shade of lipstick, duh. (So I added that part, sue me) Anyway, this probably isn't my most well thought out or put together post, but this is the stuff that keeps me up at night. It also keeps Stevie from her dog dreams because she has to hear about it.

How do you feel about it all?
