People are always shit talking Taylor for writing about her past relationships, but what about the guys who do the same?

There are multiple examples, but I chose three men who have ALSO written break up songs about TaySwift but who you've never seen get trouble for it.

John Mayer

TS - Dear John:

"But I swore I was fine, you paint me a blue sky
And go back and turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game,
But you changed the rules every day
Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone
Tonight, well I stopped picking up, and this song is to let you know why"

JM - Paper Doll:

"Cut the cord and pull some strings
And make yourself some angel wings
And if those angel wings don't fly
Someone's gonna paint you another sky
'Cause you're like 22 girls in one
And none of them know what they're running from"

Joe Jonas

Joe allegedly cheated on TS with Camilla Belle, an actress. Both of these songs are about that aspect of their break up.

TS - Better Than Revenge

"I had it all, I had him right there where I wanted him
She came along, got him alone and let's hear the applause
She took him faster than you could say 'sabotage'"

JJ - Much Better

"I get a rep for breakin' hearts
Now I'm done with superstars
And all the tears on her guitar
I'm not bitter
But now I see
Everything I'd ever need
Is the girl in front of me
She's much better"

Harry Styles

TS - Style:

"You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style"

HS - Perfect:

"And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Then baby, you're perfect
And if you're looking for someone to write your break-up songs about
Baby, I'm perfect"

Do you think she gets too much hate for how she writes songs?

tbh, I don't like her or any of these 3 it doesn't matter that much to me, she's gonna write whatever she wants and we like like it or hate it, but when it's all over its just "so that happened" & people move on eventually. 😜
Absolutely, @NickySerban, when you're on stage you're going to have your haters, I can't stand her whiny style or any of her boyfriends whiny styles either.
Yea but I mean no matter who you are or what you do someone out there will hate you for it. I think most artists depict their feelings in their work. Maybe not as specifically as she does per say but it is natural, vunerable thing to do and is also very relatable.
I love her music, I don't know anything about her except what I see in the tabloid which doesn't define her as a person but as a celebrity. I love that she's making money from her experiences not going on social media to lament and live in self pity. I love her country music but I also love good music, so I say *go for it girl*
I like her songs but personally I don't like her as a person😐
