The Internet Thinks Literally Everyone Is A “Badder Bitch” Than Taylor Swift
Needlessly controversial pop-star Taylor Swift has a new ~bad-girl~ persona that she debuted alongside the release of her new album Reputation. It’s about as convincingly badass as a suburban mall-goth, but hey, the important thing is that she’s having fun.
Regardless of the effectiveness of this new look, there are still millions of fans that will support the megastar in just about any endeavour, including those who think that actually, she is pulling off Dark Taylor. One of these fans is Twitter user @xnulz, who in November posted a fairly innocuous tweet, asking what one assumes is a hypothetical question.

The internet, of course, did not take it hypothetically, and decided to nominate a few women they considered to be “badder” than Taylor Swift. And hoo-boy, when I say a few, I mean literally hundreds. Check out that comment to like ratio!
History seems to be the home of many badder bitches, including pirate queens, tank-driving Nazi killers, spies and emancipators. But you know, Taylor has been very outspoken about her feud with Katy Perry.
Jeanne de Clisson, murderous French aristocrat-turned-pirate who named her ship My Revenge after the French king executed her husband. She spent the next decade killing all the French crews she encountered, sparing only 1 sailor to relay her message of vengeance ☠️⚓️⚔️ https://t.co/7JGPo3qNjj

Mariya Vasilyevna Oktyabrskaya: her husband was killed by the Nazis in 1941 during Operation Barbarossa. She went to the Soviet gov’t and demanded to get a tank to kill Nazis. The gov’t relented and she killed Nazis with her tank. pic.twitter.com/9Iinz8ndxx

Nancy Wake, A spy from WW2 who was wanted by the Gestapo. Once when parachuted into France she landed in a tree. When the resistance greeted her remarking, “I hope that all the trees in France bear such beautiful fruit this year.” she replied, “Don’t give me that French shit.” https://t.co/VMvZGYkNJa

There are also some more personal examples that people could think of, women who may have overcome slightly higher stakes than the pop-country idol.
My great aunt Wanda, with a 1 year old at home, Jewish, smuggled herself back INTO Nazi Germany in the boot of a car to rescue her mother. They left on last train out, stopped by border guard who took their wedding rings as payment. Both lived long happy lives in Surrey.
