Taylor Swift in Court = Perfection

Taylor Swift's sexual assault trial is underway and her testimony is beyond brilliant.

In 2013, David Mueller grabber Taylor's ass in the photo attached here. She was 23 and he was 51. Taylor and her parents decided not to go public because they didn't want the assault to define her career (and I agree with them. America loves women in jep). Instead, they gave notice to Mr. Mueller's employer and he was promptly fired.

Then, like any ass-grabbing loser would, he filed a $3M lawsuit against Taylor for getting him fired. Masterfully, she countersued for $1 (I love this woman). Now they're in court.

Taylor is experiencing that same rape-culture/blame-the-victim BS that all women face when they face their accusers in court. They have to relive the moment over and over again while being demeaned, blamed and objectified. What's different here is that Taylor has the support and strength to fight back with laser focus precision on the stand. Here are some of my favorite moments:

Mueller’s attorney Gabe McFarland asked Swift why the photo shows the front of her skirt in place, not lifted up, if Mueller was reaching underneath to grab her butt.

“Because my ass is located in the back of my body,” Swift replied.

She offered a similar response when asked whether she saw the grope taking place. When McFarland pointed out that the photo shows Swift closer to Mueller’s girlfriend than Mueller himself, Swift answered,

“Yes, she did not have her hand on my ass.”

And the ultimate come back is below:

“I am not going to allow your client to make me feel like it is any way my fault, because it isn’t,” she said. Later, she continued: “I am being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions and not mine.”

She threw the blame right back on him and it was beautiful. We need to move forward in our lives with this sort of strength, poise, and righteous indignation.

Testimony is a matter of public record there for the ages. 100 years from now they'll know exactly what sort of woman Taylor was in life...so proud of her.

Not even women in the elite

Not even women
in the elite class are safe from sexual harassment. You would expect
that money would protect them from, at least, low class perverts. But
nooo. Many men from all classes and race think they are entitled to
treat women like they treat their meat.  
Swift's mom is right:
it's time to stop teaching girls to be passive. Change that, and sexual
harassment will be reduced at least 50%. Teach boys NOT to harass and
bully, to respect other humans, especially those weaker than them, and
sexual harassment will be reduced another 10%.
