📲 TU | Taylor squashing a rumor about the concept of the #YouNeedToCalmDown music video

“That is ABSOLUTELY false. To be an ally is to understand the difference between advocating and baiting. Anyone trying twist this positivity into something it isn’t needs to calm down.” pic.twitter.com/FwurdFjzd1

To be an ally is to understand the difference between advocating and baiting.

Says the woman who wrote "Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD?" and "'Cause shade never made anybody less gay".

I understand people not liking these lines for other reasons but I would hardly say they are baiting in any way.

they're certainly not advocacy though

I'm a little confused why people are calling the lyrics baiting. Maybe it is just because I have a very specific definition for that word as a gay person and those lyrics are pretty annoying (especially the shade one for many reasons), but baiting? I don't see it.

"you need to calm down" was IMMEDIATELY weaponized by her stans to pile on lgbt people who don't like her shitty lyrics. this song is CLEARLY meant to create a shield for her fans to use to shut down other people under the guise of being pro-equality. it's fucked up.

Exactly. Interesting how even some of her fans here aren’t getting that.

This has been the most upsetting part and her stans are just ignoring or actively engaging in it. Seriously, I read those Twitter threads and I'm just so tired. And I'm supposed to be grateful because of donations? Fucking spare me.
