美國流行天后泰勒絲(Taylor Swift)一向對於政治議題三緘其口,不願透露太多自己的政治傾向與選舉人的政見品評,但出乎意料地,她竟然首次在Instgram上為美國期中選舉發表聲明,瞬間造成註冊投票人數激增!(註:美國民眾在投票選舉時,需要註冊才能進行投票。)

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! 🗳😃🌈

Taylor Swift(@taylorswift)分享的貼文 於 張貼



泰勒絲在文中表明,自己原本是不想談政治的,但因為這兩年內發生太多事情讓她開始有所轉變。除了文中公開支持LGBTQ+族群權益應該被保障,只要「任何關係到美國人權的議題」都是這些議員們不可推託的責任與信仰價值,所以泰勒絲公開表明自己不會支持這位田納西州(Tennessee)的參議院議員馬爾沙布雷克本(Marsha Blackburn)。



根據泰勒絲陳述,儘管她想為女性官員表達支持,但馬爾沙先是支持女性同工不同酬等對女性不公的政策,又反對「反婦女暴力法案」(Violence Against Women Act)對女性遭遇家庭暴力、跟蹤和強暴等行為實施的法律保護。馬爾沙甚至認為企業有權拒絕為同性伴侶提供服務,更支持反同婚的言論。

為此,泰勒絲直接表明她在這次選舉支持的人選,分別是競選參議員的菲爾布雷德森(Phil Bredesen)和眾議院的吉姆庫珀(Jim Cooper),而菲爾和吉姆看到泰勒絲的貼文後是又驚又喜,在推特上表示感謝,並大大呼籲投票註冊的最後期限。







而泰勒絲的言論效應之大,從數字就可看出來。光是發了這篇貼文之後,在過去幾個小時內,註冊投票人數一下暴增50000人以上,推特熱搜排名第一也讓泰勒斯的名字再度出現在各大媒體標題中,許多藝人、女性朋友和同志族群都紛紛出面感謝泰勒斯勇敢的聲明,青少年族群投票意願也因此增加不少。










而向來敢言的川普則表示:「馬爾沙議員向來表現出色,泰勒絲根本就不知道她的為人,我對她音樂的喜愛程度大概下降了25%。」這番言論一出笑翻廣大網友,有網友直呼:「原來川普是泰勒絲的粉絲啊?」、「下降25%還是喜歡啊」、「是不是很喜歡shake It Off」等等評論,泰勒絲投票效應成為全球矚目的新聞頭條,顯見她的影響力無遠弗屆。
