Kiyoko's comment prompted a quick backlash from Taylor's army of loyal fans (known as Swifties) who took to Tumblr to defend their queen, overanalyzing (and calling shade on) Kiyoko's comment.

Swift, however, wasn't so quick to judge, seeing it for what it was. “We should applaud artists who are brave enough to tell their honest romantic narrative through their art, and the fact is that I’ve never encountered homophobia and she has,” she wrote. “It’s her right to call out anyone who has double standards about gay vs. straight love interests.”  

Naturally, Swift can sympathize. considering she has been constantly ridiculed for referencing her past relationships with men, while other male artists receive praise and accolades for doing the same thing. Kiyoko quickly acknowledged Swift's defense. ″[Love] and respect to @taylorswift13 and all the brave artists out there sharing their truth with the world,” she wrote in a tweet. “I appreciate you. We keep climbing.”

That they will do. Evidently, sexism and homophobia are still alive and well, people, which is why it's more important now than ever to continue to support these women who are actively trying to combat them. The fight continues.

In 2015, several women were refused entry to the screening of the film Carol for not wearing high heels, which probed an act of fashion rebellion by Julia Roberts. The actress stepped onto the red carpet completely barefoot under her Armani Privé gown.
