Taylor Swift Calls Out Double Standard And Refuses To Answer Reporter’s Sexist Question During Interview

Taylor Swift is about to turn 30, and when a German reporter asked her a question she deemed sexist, she politely refused to respond.

According to a translated interview published in Friday’s German Deutsche Presse-Agentur, the “ME!” singer was asked:

“Is this a kind of turning point in your life? Would you like to be a mother someday, have children?”

Swift called out the sexist double standard in a common inquiry typically asked of women.

She said:

“I really do not think men are asked that question when they turn 30. So I’m not going to answer that now.”

Reactions to her terse response were mixed, with critics telling the pop singer to calm down.

But another came to the singer’s defense by clarifying her stance.

Misogyny just had to rear its ugly head.

Others shared their frustration over being similarly pressured.

This user flat out said that questions like this aren’t anyone’s business.

Male celebrities tend to be asked questions that are less invasive.

People have your back, Taylor.

Haters are gonna hate, Taylor. You do you and just shake it off.
