We live in a crazy world.
Donald Trump is running for President
It’s not a trick question.
It’s a n0-brainer.
(O, the irony!)
What part of this is hard?
…Is it harder than NOT calling a woman a b*tch?
That makes me sad, ya’ll,
B/c it’s clear to me that
What’s hard is sexism.
What’s hard is this argument I keep running into online-
‘She thinks she’s better than everyone else.’
I’ve seen it written, repeatedly, about both Hillary Clinton & Taylor Swift
I find it very troubling
(Aside from the fact that, yea, they ARE)
Esp. when I look at who they find themselves up against-
Donald Trump & Kanye West.
Am I missing something?! Are these men known for their HUMILITY?!
They are misogynist egomaniacs & publicity addicts.
Would you EVER hear Taylor Swift OR Hillary Clinton say that they think they’re better than everyone else?!
They are two accomplished women, who both continue to be successful amidst harsh criticism while also maintaining a constant state of DIGNITY.
I think it’s actually their uncompromising DIGNITY that’s hard for people…
It’s probably harder for those who are deeply insecure…
Those who are scared of strong women…
Those who might hide behind their own special brand of blinding narcissism…
What’s actually at the heart of Kimye‘s beef stew w/ TayTay is the fact that-
Kanye West did not make Taylor Swift famous!
Taylor made Kanye infamous
W/out even trying
He has never forgiven her.
I cannot forgive Kanye for Famous
REGARDLESS of how much Taylor knew about the lyrics-
B/c felt he threatened
Upset by the fact that she has more of what he values most-
Taylor’s Fame has thus far been a special kind,
Bathed in golden light-
A kind that takes work to achieve.
Taylor did the work.
We all watched as she did it
Grew up in the process.
We watched as she somehow thrived in an industry that is not known to respect women
Managed to survive w/out a blemish on her reputation-
Taylor Swift is a real-life female role-model,
Who Kanye is seeking to
(Of what she has earned through a lifetime of hard work.)
He’s already tried it once,
Thoughtlessly & drunkenly,
But this time-
He did it more thoughtfully,
W/ the help of an enabler-
Kim Kardashian West
(Just the name makes me shudder.)
Let’s face it-
Kimye set a trap.
Remember the Benghazi hearing?
Now, the Republicans weren’t able to catch Hillary w/ the hearing,
But they’re not letting go of those emails…
What it really comes down to w/ both women is-
They got caught protecting themselves at all costs
That’s not ‘lady-like,’
But what is & isn’t ‘lady-like’ is the battle that’s being fought
The struggle is real.
Look at the other side-
Do Kanye West & Donald Trump play fair themselves?
Do we, as women, want to be represented by Kim Kardashian & Melania Trump,
The leading ladies of Kanye West & Donald Trump?!
Do we want to be represented by empowered women who are actual leaders?
Tell me again how you’re ‘tired’ of Hillary & Taylor
I will show you two women who work harder for good on a near daily basis than many people do in a lifetime.
That is all.
I’m w/ them,
Your grl on base.
