Taylor Swift stans are not great about reading the room. While Swift has certainly produced some legitimate bops, her latest album has not been a critical success. People generally consider her a snake, and even if she is trying to make something of that with her new album, it doesn't change wider public perception.

My grandmother who raised a half dozen kids, only one of which was her own, worked every day of her life. Could drink anyone under the table and survived breast cancer TWICE.

That was actually a very insightful list, full of women it's worth looking up, and looking up to. And if you love Taylor Swift, that's fine too!
