a) contrary to popular belief, taylor swift has dated 6 guys in her entire life. just because she’s rumoured to be with xx and xx doesn’t mean she’s dating them. the true definition of “slut” is a woman who is sexually promiscuous (uhm, right. 96% of all famous female singers are undeniably more sexualised than taylor — there’re so many of them at the top of my head but i won’t name them here) or someone who has casual, flippant relationships. it’s valid to say that perhaps, 6 guys for a 24-year-old might be a little bit more than average depending on your geographical culture, but the thing is, is that in all these 6 relationships, she’s completely serious about them. she truly yearns for each relationship to work, and for them to last forever. she puts her whole heart and soul in all these relationships. she invested herself into them. have you listened to her songs????? basically most lyrics in her love songs radiate such qualities. (tim mcgraw, breathe, dear john or all too well are just some very limited examples)
b) also, taylor never, ever sang about sex. unlike a whole trash load of other singers out there, where the allusion to sex (or the blatant, completely unhidden reference to sex) appears in every after lyric. when does taylor sing about sex??????????? how can you call her a “slut” when she has never, ever sang or even spoken about sex before? there’re so few a-lister musicians who has never incorporated sexual references into their songs and taylor is one of them.
c) to begin with, taylor isn’t even comfortable talking about sex. when asked about her virginity by allure magazine, taylor answered “it’s fine to talk about love publicly, but i think when you talk about virginity and sex publicly, people just automatically picture you naked. and as much as I can prevent people picturing me naked, i’m going to.” so it’s actually possible for a slut to shy away from talking about sex, wow.
d) it was never on taylor’s agenda to be “sexy”. she recently said "every artist has their set of priorities. being looked at as sexy? not really on my radar. but nice? i really hope that that is the impression."
e) have you ever seen taylor’s horrified expression and her covering her eyes at the miley cyrus performance at last year’s vmas here and here? she’s obviously very uncomfortable and inexperienced with any physical expressions of sex or anything resembling that.
f) some people are saying her outfit is getting “sexier”. right. the most “sexualised” piece of clothing she has even worn is a crop top like this one here. how is that “promoting” sex????????? you might argue, the recent crop top in the vma performance (here) is sexualised. okay, it’s definitely a little more sexy then her average outfits, but just by a little. it’s considered decent by a lot of standards when compared to other artists. in fact, very much more decent, because i could name so many names. and gosh, that girl’s 24!! she can’t possibly be wearing fairy dresses and cowboy boots her whole life, can she?
in conclusion, please know someone well enough first before calling them out as “sluts”.
I loved “A” everything after that I hated. Talking about sex, singing about sex, dressing sexy doesn’t make someone more or less of a slut. I just HATE how so many people in this fanbase defend Taylor by comparing her to “other celebrities”. Like STOP. Stop bringing people down just to brig Taylor up. Taylor isn’t a slut and neither are those other celebs. Honestly no one should be called a slut, period.
