Taylor Swift Lyrics Get Feminist Makeover

(Radio.com) For those who feel Taylor Swift's lyrics are a little antiquated in their view of romance, a new Twitter handle is giving them a feminist upgrade. Going by the name FeministTaylorSwift (@feministtswift), the parody account started re-writing some of the singer's biggest songs on June 12th.

In just 20 days, the account (whose photo is Swift done up like Rosie The Riveter) has posted 184 tweets that attempt to break the glass ceiling by redefining a few pop songs. With nearly 111,000 followers at press time, the account seems to have struck a chord.

No longer is "Love Story" about a girl pining for a guy. Instead it's about a woman finding her own strength. One tweet reads, "You were Romeo, you were throwin' pebbles / And my daddy said "Stay away from Juliet" / But I'm a grown woman who can make her own decisions"

A new version of "Today Was A Fairytale" plays with the idea of happily ever after. " Today was a fairytale / You were the prince / I was a beautiful submissive girl with no personality / It was kind of a terrible day actually" See how 22 was tweaked and more.
