    Taylor Swift recently revamped her Eras Tour setlist to include hits from her newly-released album The Tortured Poets Department, referring to this new section of the concert as "Female Rage: The Musical."

    While the entire album could easily fit into this category of female rage, let's take a closer look at nine lyrics that hit especially close to home:

    2. "And I'll forget you, but I'll never forgive / The smallest man who ever lived"
