The New York Times recently published an Op-Ed which chronicled that Taylor Swift has secretly been indicating her queerness through her lyrics and music over the years. The lengthy piece on the outlet points out that Swift is a part of the queer community and this questioning of the artist’s sexuality has angered fans and even people close to the singer.

As CNN reports, a source close to the singer criticized the op-ed for being self-indulgent and crossing all kinds of boundaries in the name of journalism. The source also pointed out the sexist nature of the op-ed and pointed out that such direct accusations wouldn’t have been written if it were a male artist. The source said,

“Because of her massive success, at this moment there is a Taylor-shaped hole in people’s ethics. This article wouldn’t have been allowed to be written about Shawn Mendes or any male artist whose sexuality has been questioned by fans.

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,’”

Such opinionated articles that are not based on fact but rather on assumptions can negatively impact an artist’s reputation and the public outrage over it is understandable. Targeting a highly popular celebrity in such a way is unethical and disrespectful to the legacy of the artist.
