Those Crazy Women

I'm not the biggest fan of Taylor Swift or her music, but when I heard a little bit of an uproar in the feminist community, I decided to check out her video for her new song 'Blank Space'. After being branded as 'crazy' by a few guys in the past, I completely understood where the feminists were coming from.

If you haven't seen the video, it features a relationship between Taylor and a very attractive man which has major ups and downs which lead to them shouting at each other, Taylor Swift destroying a beautiful car (I almost wept) and at one point I think she was stood on a horse? Yeah, it was a bit weird.

Now I don't know if she was trying to show men that their girlfriends aren't that crazy and they shouldn't be branding women as crazy because this is how they behave, or if she was saying that this is how women wish they could behave and, in fact, are nuts. Either way, the video portrays women in an awful light and actually makes me think, why have I been branded 'crazy' in the past.

Most of the time, the guys who have called me crazy weren't even my boyfriends? There was one guy who couldn't decide between me and my best friend. He told me to kill myself (that's another story) and still to this day calls me psychotic to my best friend (it happened literally 2 days ago).

If this is anything to go by, are people just calling women crazy to cover their own tracks? Let me know your thoughts because I'm still a bit confused. Email me at and I'll compile all the answers in one post.

Thanks guys!
