taylorswift: I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.

I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.

So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈
I can safely I've never stanned a singer more in my life, she took a risk revealing her stance in politics and knows she'll suffer the repercussions for this but she wanted to make it clear who exactly she was voting for and why. I think it too guts to do so and I've never been more prouder

I'm glad she did it, and I think it's absolutely hilarious that she did it after taking all that republican money, seeing as that, aside from guns, is the thing they care about the most.

^ *sips tea* it was a pretty amazing move on her part and knowing she could receive backlash for that post and not giving a *beep* really is the icing on the cake

Some of them have already started burning albums as if she hasn't already got their money anyway

Same, I thought it was always pretty obvious.

It's like everyone just assumed she was a homophobic republican just because she's a white singer

It's dumb. Her silence didn't help, but no one is obligated to speak up, tbh.

You're right, she had her own personal reasons as to why she never talked about her positioning on politics.

In some ways it's better to not say anything if it will get people to do their own research and make up their own minds.

wow go Taylor with that comment Brave but doesn't surprise me she'd have the guts to do it regardless of the backlash it'll get/will be getting

I love it when people stop being fans because of the opinions of the artists

& formerly(?) a white country singer so of course even more reason she'd be one . It should be no secret that she supports the LGBT community by now though but people like to see what they want & ignore the things they don't agree with
