There's a new Twitter account that empowers Taylor Swift's somewhat questionable lyrics and it's pretty much the greatest thing ever.

She wears high heels / I wear sneakers / We're each expressing our gender identities in ways that make us feel comfortable / Date me

"I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter / She is the best thing that's ever been mine" / Hold on, why am I a man's property?

@FeministTSwift is the creation of Clara Beyer, a rising senior at Brown University who runs That Girl Magazine, a college blog devoted to "carefully walking the line between fucking the patriarchy and recommending an awesome new lipstain."

In an email to BuzzFeed, Beyer says she thought of the idea Tuesday and set up the account when a friend called her 20 minutes after seeing her tweet and said, "This needs to actually happen."

"I consider myself a feminist, and I blog about that kind of thing all the time, but I also LOVE Taylor Swift," Beyer says. "Being a feminist Taylor Swift fan isn't always easy, but it led to @FeministTSwift, so I'm not really complaining."
