Taylor Swift Beranikan diri Ungkap Pandangan Politik di Instagram

Memberanikan diri, Taylor Swift baru-baru ini mengungkapkan pandangannya mengenai politik di akun Instagram resmi miliknya. 

Politik merupakan salah satu topik yang sangat sensitif untuk dibicarakan karena bisa jadi orang yang memiliki pendapat bertentangan denganmu malah mencibirmu. Akhirnya karena takut hal itu terjadi, banyak orang yang mengamankan diri dengan cara diam. Padahal, tidak ada yang salah jika kamu berbeda pendapat dengan yang lain, seperti si pelantun lagu Delicates yaitu Taylor Swift yang dulunya enggan mengomentari politik pada publik. Ia akhirnya mengutarakan pendapatnya tentang politik secara terang-terangan di instagram miliknya. 

Taylor mengunggah sebuah postingan di instagram yang menjelaskan tentang keresahannya terhadap pemilu AS yang akan datang. Ia mengatakan bahwa ia akan memilih siapapun kandidat yang akan memperjuangkan human rights, serta martabat seluruh rakyat Amerika apapun warna kulit, gender dan siapa yang mereka cintai.

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! 🗳😃🌈

Taylor mengaku walaupun dulunya ia memilih perempuan saat pemilu, namun ia terang-terangan mengatakan enggan memilih salah satu kandidat pemilu perempuan yaitu Marsha Blackburn karena ia sama sekali tidak memiliki value yang sama dengan Tay. Walaupun Marsha seorang perempuan, Tay mengatakan bahwa ia melawan kesetaraan gaji untuk perempuan, bahkan ia merasa tempat-tempat bisnis memiliki hak untuk tidak melayani gay dan kaum gay tidak berhak untuk menikah.
