Clara Beyer, a rising senior at Brown University who runs That Girl Magazine, had a moment of pure genius last week. She came up with the idea to pair Taylor Swift lyrics with feminist messages on Twitter, and FeministTSwift was born. Here's just a few examples:
As Beyer told Buzzfeed, “I consider myself a feminist, and I blog about that kind of thing all the time, but I also LOVE Taylor Swift. Being a feminist Taylor Swift fan isn’t always easy, but it led to @FeministTSwift, so I’m not really complaining."
Our Verdict: OMG! YES!
This Twitter account is just plain hilarious. Plus, it's also a great reminder to keep your eyes and ears open to the mixed messages pop culture sends. We're sure Taylor Swift isn't anti-feminist, but she probably doesn't realize some of her lyrics are sexist.
Now go follow FeministTSwift and try to come up with your own tweets too!
