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.

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
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

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
I don't know about you / But I'm feeling 22 / cents underpaid on the dollar
7:34 PM - 13 Jun 13

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
It's a love story / Baby just say yes / because consent should always be freely and enthusiastically given
3:27 AM - 13 Jun 13

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
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

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
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.

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
The stakes are high / The water's rough / But these reproductive choices are ours.
10:00 PM - 13 Jun 13

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
She wears short skirts / I wear t-shirts / Neither of us is asking for it
12:40 PM - 12 Jun 13

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
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

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
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

FeministTaylorSwift @feministtswift
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.

Leslie Berntsen @leslie_bern
.@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

Lola @runlolarun
@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

Katie @Katie_Mau
@feministtswift Marry me, Juliet/ you'll never have to be alone/ unless you want to be/ because aloneness isn't an inherently bad thing
5:40 AM - 14 Jun 13


@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.”

clara b @clarabellum
Idea for a single purpose twitter: feminist Taylor swift
12:15 AM - 12 Jun 13


“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.”

Some of these made me laugh out loud! If only my high school geography classes had been presented this way I might have actually paid attention! :lol:

Some of those would be well worth talking about in school. I mean, would count towards real learning, not just rote.

I was asked for my favorite song to be added to a compilation Cd for a group I belong to.

It's like having to pick your favorite child.

My final three:

"Kid" - The Pretenders

"Black" - Pearl Jam

"What's Up" - Four Non-Blondes

Just missing the cut:

"Loser" - Beck

"Cortez The Killer" - Neil Young

What constitution?

So, grounds for appeal for every drug case in the country?

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...97409R20130805

"Remember that the utilization of SOD cannot be revealed or discussed in any investigative function," a document presented to agents reads. The document specifically directs agents to omit the SOD's involvement from investigative reports, affidavits, discussions with prosecutors and courtroom testimony. Agents are instructed to then use "normal investigative techniques to recreate the information provided by SOD."

"It's just like laundering money - you work it backwards to make it clean," said Finn Selander, a DEA agent from 1991 to 2008 and now a member of a group called Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, which advocates legalizing and regulating narcotics.

Some defense lawyers and former prosecutors said that using "parallel construction" may be legal to establish probable cause for an arrest. But they said employing the practice as a means of disguising how an investigation began may violate pretrial discovery rules by burying evidence that could prove useful to criminal defendants.

Some of the things I learn from this week in the desert are learned at home. I need to empty out the pantry, basement, garden hut, attic and several other unused spots around here. I have too much of everything. My tool area looks like the 'Anything for $5' bin at Ace Hardware. The basement is full of VCRs and other outdated electronics. (I'm keeping the boombox to be burried in). Yes. It all must go. I'm sure I'll get rich beyond my wildest dreams selling my car buffer, artificial xmas tree and a cheap clothing rack for a laundry room. Plus all the junk that isn't coming with me this year is going away. I'm not attached to any of it. I can't find my big bag of styrofoam skulls because it's probably under the camping gear that we haven't used in 20 years. I feel much better now that I have a plan.

I must own 6 shovels and 3 post-hole diggers. As if............
