The public’s hate for Taylor Swift, though, is still awash in that new love affair scent. Hating Taylor Swift is cool now, because, oh my God, does she have to write a song about every guy she dates?
Well, yeah, she kind of does. Rather, she doesn’t have to, but why in the fuck shouldn’t she? For one thing, relationships are something musicians have been covering in song forever. It seems like a problem here because everyone knows who she’s singing about, but how is that her fault? Lots of easily entertained people want to know that kind of information. Why does that equate to Taylor Swift not getting to write the same kind of songs that so many men and women before her have written? The video for Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” made it pretty clear who he was singing about …and there has yet to be an instance in recorded history of anyone being mad at that guy for anything.
“And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.”

Even as I’m writing this, I’m crying a little. It’s not fair that this post has to exist. The little girl in the pictures is named Delaney “Laney” Brown.
She is eight years old, and she is dying. Laney wants nothing more than to meet Taylor Swift, and we need to try to make that happen.
I only have 231 followers, so I don’t know how effective this post will be, but if each of you can Facebook or Tweet at Taylor Swift to raise her awareness about this amazing, courageous, and beautiful little girl, I would owe you a huge debt of gratitude.
Please guys, please, please, please signal boost this. Reblog if you can, reach out to Taylor if you can. This little girl has had such a rough life, but we can make it a little bit better.
