This may seem an odd post coming from someone who openly abhors twitter (to the point of doing a satirical art project in 2011 and lugging it clear across the country) but I'm posting it anyway just because it tickles me:
The Feminist Taylor Swift Twitter Account Is Hilarious
Meet your new favorite Taylor Swift–feminist rhetoric mashup Twitter @FeministTSwift and the woman behind it.
Ellie Hall BuzzFeed Staff, June 14, 2013 at 12:00pm EDT -- There’s a new Twitter account that empowers Taylor Swift’s somewhat questionable lyrics and it’s pretty much the greatest thing ever.
She wears high heels / I wear sneakers / We're each expressing our gender identities in ways that make us feel comfortable / Date me
12:37 AM - 14 Jun 13
I don't know about you / But I'm feeling 22 / cents underpaid on the dollar
7:34 PM - 13 Jun 13
It's a love story / Baby just say yes / because consent should always be freely and enthusiastically given
3:27 AM - 13 Jun 13
Abigail gave her virginity to a boy who changed his mind / but virginity wasn't all she had to offer / she had been duped by the patriarchy
4:32 PM - 13 Jun 13
I'm not a princess / This ain't a fairytale / I'm writing my own story / With a strong female hero
3:58 AM - 14 Jun 13
The account was created two days ago and already has 7,000 followers, having gained 2,000 followers in the last six hours.
The stakes are high / The water's rough / But these reproductive choices are ours.
10:00 PM - 13 Jun 13
She wears short skirts / I wear t-shirts / Neither of us is asking for it
12:40 PM - 12 Jun 13
You say you've never met one girl who / reads as many Judith Butler essays as you / But I do
11:23 PM - 12 Jun 13
You pull my chair out and help me in / & You don't know how nice that is / But it also reinforces the idea that women are inherently fragile
1:42 PM - 14 Jun 13
I talked to your parents / because i know family is important to you / as is your sexual autonomy / go pick out a white dress
8:17 PM - 12 Jun 13
Twitter users are already joining in on the fun.

.@feministtswift But you carry my groceries and now I'm less than amused/Instead of laughing, let's talk about the harm in benevolent sexism
1:10 AM - 14 Jun 13
@feministtswift don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess / it's a love story / SCOTUS just say yes
4:12 AM - 14 Jun 13
@feministtswift Marry me, Juliet/ you'll never have to be alone/ unless you want to be/ because aloneness isn't an inherently bad thing

@FeministTSwift is the creation of Clara Beyer, a rising senior at Brown University who runs That Girl Magazine, a college blog devoted to “carefully walking the line between fucking the patriarchy and recommending an awesome new lipstain.”
In an email to BuzzFeed, Beyer says she thought of the idea Tuesday and set up the account when a friend called her 20 minutes after seeing her tweet and said, “This needs to actually happen.”

Idea for a single purpose twitter: feminist Taylor swift

“I consider myself a feminist, and I blog about that kind of thing all the time, but I also LOVE Taylor Swift,” Beyer says. “Being a feminist Taylor Swift fan isn’t always easy, but it led to @FeministTSwift, so I’m not really complaining.”
“My fantasy is that this Twitter account gets so many followers that she tweets at us.” https://twitter.com/feministtswift
