Taylor Swift Called Out Netflix And Its New Show “Ginny & Georgia” For Its “Deeply Sexist” Joke About Her Love Life

“Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back.”

In the first episode of the show, which dropped last week, one of the characters made a joke at the singer’s expense, saying, “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.”

Swift covered the subject of misogyny in that same Netflix documentary, revealing she was working hard to “de-program the misogyny in my own brain.”

“I’m trying to be as educated as possible on how to respect people, on how to de-program the misogyny in my own brain. Toss it out, reject it, and resist it,” she explained. “Like, there is no such thing as a slut. There is no such thing as a bitch. There is no such thing as someone who’s bossy, there’s just a boss.”

And this isn’t the first time Swift has spoken out against “jokes” about her dating life. Back in 2013, she responded to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s comments at that year’s Golden Globes that she needed some “time out” from dating.

“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,” Swift told Vanity Fair two months after the ceremony. “For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated…and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”
