Taylor Swift’s friends are upset about op-ed questioning the hitmaker’s sexuality, calling it ‘invasive, untrue and inappropriate’

Taylor Swift’s friends are upset about an opinion piece in The New York Times that questions her sexuality.

The essay, written by Anna Marks, questions whether the hitmaker — who was spotted exiting a gym in Los Angeles on Thursday as she prepares to leave on the international leg of her Eras tour — could be gay.

Those close to the 34-year-old Grammy winner question the morality of publishing the article.

‘Because of her massive success, in this moment there is a Taylor-shaped hole in people’s ethics,’ a source close to the situation told CNN.

The contents of the article are based on conjecture, and the insider questioned whether a double standard had been applied in allowing the op-ed to be published.

Taylor Swift’s friend are upset about an opinion piece in The New York Times that question whether the hitmaker, 34, is gay. The article suggests outfits such as this one worn at Wango Tango in June 2019, and some song lyrics could convey a message about her sexuality

‘This article wouldn’t have been allowed to be written about Shawn Mendes or any male artist whose sexuality has been questioned by fans,’ they told the news network.

‘There seems to be no boundary some journalists won’t cross when writing about Taylor, regardless of how invasive, untrue, and inappropriate it is — all under the protective veil of an “opinion piece,”‘ the person declared.

The piece titled, ‘Look What We Made Taylor Swift Do,’ by on of the paper’s Opinion editors, looks at lyrics from the Lover artist’s body of work, which she believes could Sapphic love.

‘Anyone considering the whole of Ms. Swift’s artistry — the way that her brilliantly calculated celebrity mixes with her soul-baring art — can find discrepancies between the story that underpins her celebrity and the one captured by her songs.’ the author wrote.

Marks cited examples from her appearance, including wearing hair colors from the bisexual pride flag, or rainbow dresses.

She also hints a so-called Easter eggs in the lyrics, in which refer to being in ‘glass closets’ in Willow or paying homage to lesbian artist Louie Fuller during her Reputation tour.

‘In isolation, a single dropped hairpin is perhaps meaningless or accidental, but considered together, they’re the unfurling of a ballerina bun after a long performance,’ the editor wrote.

‘Those dropped hairpins began to appear in Ms. Swift’s artistry long before queer identity was undeniably marketable to mainstream America. They suggest to queer people that she is one of us.’

Taylor has explained her pro-LGTBQ stance as advocacy, explaining to Vogue in 2019, ‘Rights are being stripped from basically everyone who isn’t a straight white cisgender male. I didn’t realize until recently that I could advocate for a community that I’m not a part of’

Taylor has explained her pro-LGTBQ stance as advocacy, explaining to Vogue in 2019, ‘Rights are being stripped from basically everyone who isn’t a straight white cisgender male,’ she said at the time.

‘I didn’t realize until recently that I could advocate for a community that I’m not a part of.’

In the prologue to her 1989 (Taylor’s Version) album, which was released in October, the Out of the Woods singer, who is currently dating NFL star Travis Kelce, wrote, she surrounded herself with female friends because she was tired of the speculation about her romantic liaisons with men.

‘If I only hung out with my female friends, people couldn’t sensationalize or sexualize that — right? I would learn later on that people could and people would.’
