Lately, there’s been a whole whirlwind of drama and negativity within us fans, and I personally am not liking it. For those of you who have been amid the Swift fandom on any social media in the last day or two, you’ve probably caught wind of a website created to try and point out flaws a person sees in the way Taylor’s management. Personally, I agreed with the author on a few points of favoritism they had made, I did not however, agree with the statements made against certain fans. A few claims were made against the fans who have benefited from the current system. I think that everyone has a right to their opinion, and the author was very articulate in their writing, it seemed as if they really weren’t trying to intentionally hurt anyone. My one concern with this was how they went about sharing their thoughts. If they left their thoughts at the holes in the system they thought existed, I would’ve been perfectly okay with it and probably would’ve supported it. However, the fans they were anonymously calling out were evident, though not specifically named. Putting these fans on full blast in public set up an entirely new problem which is where I really started to dislike what I was seeing. Other fans, took the words of the author and the creation of the webpage as an excuse to start attacking the privileged out of their own personal anger and jealousy. This is so wrong on so many levels. I agree that there should be ways to meet Taylor in an equal setting, for there are SO many of us who put our time into supporting her, buying merch, attending shows, etc. and yes, I will admit that sometimes it’s frustrating to see the same people repeatedly rewarded for work that so many of us do. But the problem exists with those of you using this frustration as a reason to bully these fans. Yes, you may deserve to meet Taylor. But does that mean they’re not? I understand we all want these opportunities, and yeah many of them have has really amazing experiences, but put yourself in their places. Would you really turn down these chances? I highly doubt that some of you would. Letting anger fuel your words is a dangerous thing. Clearly many of us are really passionate on this topic, so instead of using these emotions to intentionally hurt others, who truly have no control over the situation, I think you should use them to write how you feel. Send a letter or an email to Taylor’s management or something, or anyone who might actually be in a position to make the change in the system you are looking for. So for those of you who have been hateful or bitter and are really passionate about changing the system, consider this. Instead of pressing the “Tweet” button on the words you’re about to send a fan who has done no wrong, try taking those words and putting them into a letter and send them to this address:
718 Thompson Lane Suite 108256 Tennessee
The fan you’re about to tweet can not do anything to help your situation. But maybe try sending your thoughts to the people who actually can, if you’re that concerned. Your words can hurt people, so use them wisely.
You held your head like a hero

I think one of the things that I’m happiest with, in the last year, is the acceptance level in country music for me experimenting and for me trying to evolve and challenge myself musically. I think it’s never felt better to be on that stadium stage performing knowing that everyone’s been so welcoming of change
Taylor Swift attends the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at Lexington Avenue Armory on November 13 in New York City.
Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you.
