泰勒絲首度開腔表達政治立場,但竟發聲反對女性候選人?

28 歲美國樂壇天后泰勒絲(Taylor Swift)毫無疑問是全球時下最火紅的歌手之一,尤其擁有眾多少男少女粉絲的她,讓許多人對於泰勒絲的言行舉止都以高標準看待。還記得在 2016 年唐納·川普與希拉蕊·柯林頓的美國總統大選期間,由於泰勒絲自始至終都沒有對於自己的政治立場表態,因此引起了部分網友對她砲轟,更有人因此猜測她的沉默是因為「泰勒絲是川普支持者」,她的舞者好友托德里克·霍爾(Todrick Hall)就曾經公開表達對於泰勒絲無辜被貼上這個政治標籤感到憤怒不已。

 

▼不過現在泰勒絲罕見表達了自己的政治觀點和立場,她在 Instagram:「我寫的這篇長文是為了即將於 11 月 6 日舉行的中期選舉,我將在田納西州投票。在過去,我一直不願意公開表達我的政治觀點,但由於過去 2 年我生活與世界上所發生的一些事件,現在我有了不同的想法。我一直都是以那些會保護並爭取我相信我們在這個國家應得人權的候選人來進行投票,針對性取向或性別的任何形式歧視都是錯誤的。我認為在這個國家我們仍然看得到針對有色人種的種族主義是非常可怕的且令人作嘔的、但又是普遍存在。」

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈

「我不能投票給那些不願意為所有美國人爭取尊嚴的人,無論他們的膚色、性別、又或是他們喜歡哪一個性別的人。在田納西州的選舉中有一名女性 Marsha Blackburn,就像我過去一樣,我現在仍然希望能夠繼續為女性投票,但我不能支持 Marsha Blackburn。她在國會的投票記錄令我震驚和恐懼,她不僅投票反對女性同工同酬,還投票反對“反對暴力侵害婦女行為法”的重新授權,這個法案試圖保護婦女免受家庭暴力、跟蹤以及約會時被強姦。她認為企業有權拒絕為同性戀伴侶提供服務,還認為他們不應該享有結婚的權利。這些都不是我對於田納西州的價值觀,我將投票給參議院的 Phil Bredesen 和眾議院的 Jim Cooper。請你們大家都務必自行了解您所在州的候選人,並根據與你價值觀貼近的候選人進行投票。對於我們很多人來說,我們可能永遠找不到我們完全同意的候選人或政黨,但無論如何我們都必須投票。」
