Feminist Taylor Swift?

Some awesome student at Brown University has recently made a twitter account dedicated turning Taylor Swift lyrics into more feminist statements. Here is a link to an article about it if you want to read more: Click Here!

As some of you may know from past conversations with me, I am no Taylor Swift fan, which is partially why I found this twitter to be so brilliant. However, if any of you are not immune to her catchy music (for which I can’t blame you), I think you can also appreciate these amusing tweets that turn Taylor Swift lyrics into feminist comments on society and patriarchy. In fact, the person running the blog is a fan herself! I think we can all agree that this new twitter account is not only brilliant from a feminist perspective, but also just downright funny.

Hope this gives you guys a good laugh, be you a fan or not.

Creep Shots

Hey guys, so let me just start off by putting a trigger warning on this.

I just found out about this thing called “creep shots.” Apparently people are going around taking photos stealthily of unsuspecting women and then posting them online. In particular, a twitter account. Link Here I can’t believe people think this is acceptable to take photos of women without them knowing or consenting.

Just thought I would spread a little awareness.

Now that everything has wound down, I just wanted to wish all my fellow feminists a happy and safe summer! And to all of UTFA’s seniors who graduated last weekend, the best of luck in your future endeavors! We owe you all so much!

I’m going to try my best to post over the summer and keep you guys updated. UTFA will be busy making the organization more visible to incoming students this summer, so we look forward to plenty of new faces come fall.

Peace, Love, & Girl Power
