Taylor Swift grew to become the topic of a whole article making an attempt to determine if she was a part of the LGBTQ+ group … and apparently, individuals in her world are fairly pissed about it.
The NYT not too long ago revealed an op-ed by author Anna Marks — who identifies as queer — and it is titled, “Look What We Made Taylor Swift Do.” The whole premise of the piece is a deep dive into hypothesis that TS would possibly, maybe, be one thing apart from straight.
Marks refers to moments she perceives as Taylor “dropping hairpins” (aka, dropping clues about being LGBTQ+) all through her profession … writing, “In isolation, a single dropped hairpin is maybe meaningless or unintentional, however thought of collectively, they’re the unfurling of a ballerina bun after a protracted efficiency.”
She provides, “Those dropped hairpins began appearing in Ms. Swift’s artistry lengthy earlier than queer identification was undeniably marketable to mainstream America. They counsel to queer folks that she is one among us.” If it feels like a attain, Taylor’s camp appears to really feel the identical manner.
While Taylor has actually confirmed herself to be ally to the LGBTQ+ group, she’s by no means explicitly indicated she’s into something however dudes — in truth, her relationship report proves that.
That level was hit house by somebody near Taylor, who instructed CNN … “Because of her large success, on this second there’s a Taylor-shaped gap in individuals’s ethics. This article wouldn’t have been allowed to be written about Shawn Mendes or any male artist whose sexuality has been questioned by followers.”
This individual provides, “There appears to be no boundary some journalists gained’t cross when writing about Taylor, no matter how invasive, unfaithful, and inappropriate it’s — all beneath the protecting veil of an ‘opinion piece.'”
There have, in truth, been assume items written about male pop stars and their sexuality … specifically, Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, and so on. But this level is properly taken — simply go away or not it’s, individuals.
You can clearly be supportive of queer individuals with out essentially being queer your self.
