Problematic Women: Taylor Swift Isn’t Allowed to be Happy

According to New York Magazine, Taylor Swift isn’t allowed to be happy having a successful year in 2017—or thank fans for wishing her a happy birthday.

“I love you guys so much,” the pop singer shared on Instagram. “I couldn’t have asked for a better year, all thanks to you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Can’t wait to see what 28 will be like. See you on tour.”

But because Swift is “a straight, white, multi-millionaire pop star,” New York Magazine had a problem with her post.

“Congrats to the now 28-year-old Taylor Swift for being the only person who seemed to enjoy 2017,” the magazine tweeted, along with a column sarcastically listing “highlights” from the year, such as Trump getting sworn in as president, the Las Vegas shooting that killed 58 people, and the hurricanes devastated parts of Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

In this week’s episode of “Problematic Women,” The Daily Signal addresses New York Magazine’s inability to be happy for Taylor Swift, as well as Rosie O’Donnell’s strange attempt to break the law. We also take on Hillary Clinton’s latest “What Happened” theory, E! news host Cat Sadlerand quitting her job over a pay dispute, and crown a group of Harvard sorority sisters who are vowing to continue recruitment despite it violating the schools’ “non-discrimination principles” our Problematic Woman of the Week.
