'Pretty Little Liars' actress "appalled" by Taylor Swift's "false feminism"
Troian Bellisario, who plays the character of Spencer Hastings in 'Pretty Little Liars', has criticised pop superstar Taylor Swift for being a bad feminist.
The actress spoke to America's edition of Cosmopolitan magazine at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia and confessed that she is disgusted with Swift's constant display of "false feminism"
"I'm so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism. It seems like she's this person who's like, 'Sisterhood!' and then she does nothing but tear down the women that were once her friends."
Back in 2014, Swift spoke to Canadian talk show Tout Le Monde En Parle about gender inequality and feminism and said:
"Females are kind of pinned up against each other. For example, you’ll never see online 'Vote for who has the better butt: this actor or this actor.' It’s always this female singer or this female singer. It's every day [for me].... In order for us to have gender equality, we have to stop making it a girl fight, and we have to stop being so interested in seeing girls try and tear each other down. It has to be more about cheering each other on as women."
"I would have understood it and earlier on in my life would have proudly claimed that I was a feminist, because I would have understood what the word means. So many girls out there say, 'I'm not a feminist,' because they think it means something angry, or disgruntled, or complaining, or they picture rioting and picketing. It is not that at all. It simply means you believe women and men should have equal rights and opportunities."
