So, if you've read my previous post about music then you'll know that I'm a Taylor Swift fan. I have been from quite a young age and, not to sound too cheesy, but it was before her music and lyrics helped me get through quite a lot of trauma. Therefore, you can imagine how I've felt through the previous months of full on hate towards her and I can't help but feel so disgusted of society.
It seems to me that views on women are going backwards. Children from our generation seem to have been socialised into thinking women should find a man, marry him and then wait on their husband and feel depressed, lonely and unfulfilled with their life. This is not how people should feel about women anymore! This is such an old view on life that we must get over. No female wants to live a life without fulfillment, so why hate on a woman who is being independent and focussing on her job? Oh yeah, because apparently she's had loads of boyfriends so that means she's a 'slut', 'whore' etc. Judging someone by how many boyfriends they have had is ridiculous and completely old-fashioned. So what if Adele is the same age and has a child? Stop comparing people. Not everyone is the same. Taylor is just living her life, whether that be with a man or not.
The other question is, why should you care? Because people always said she was 'innocent'? Again, she never said she wanted this persona of being innocent, society just labelled her as that. So now that she's had relationships means that she's 'ruined'? Of course that's not the case! It's just because she's a female that people care. Harry Styles is 19 years old and has been seen with a number of females, however, he does not get any hate because of this. Why is that? Because he's male and males, in this society, being seen with many girls is seen as 'macho'.
I'm not one to judge but I want people to realise that the worst kind of inequality, in my opinion, is in the media. Females are constantly ridiculed for not being a certain way. Females are constantly being taken advantage of. I could go on. What I'm trying to say is that this needs to stop. Society needs to learn that men and women are equal, even in the media. However, from what I have seen recently, this is not going to stop all of a sudden and me, being the pessimist that I am, I actually believe that it's never going to happen. Well, definitely not while I'm alive.
I hope you took what I said into consideration because I'm sick of everything in the media at the moment.
Thanks for reading if you did.
