"Blasting someone for donating money instead of tweeting is so millennial"

If you've been anywhere near an internet connection over the past few days, then you'll know Kesha's lawsuit against Dr. Luke has sparked a whole new drama. A drama involving Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, feminism, and $250,000. 

It all started when Taylor donated the quarter of a million dollars to Kesha's legal campaign, following a judge ruling against her and the resulting #FreeKesha movement.

Demi wasn't happy with that, and appeared to call Taylor out for spending money rather than raising awareness of the wider issues.

She was then accused of making someone else's struggle about herself, and kicked off BIG time.

"Not everyone has 250k to just give to people. Would love to but I didn't grow up with money and def haven't made as much as her. At least I speak up about shit that's uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7," she wrote. 

She later clarified her comments and insisted she wasn't shading Swift, but not before 'Out of The Woods' music video director Joseph Kahn jumped in to defend Taylor. 

"A 'fake feminist' is a nonsensical term. It's like a 'fake oxygen breather'", he wrote. "Either they're breathing or they're dead. Blasting someone for donating money instead of tweeting is so millennial.

Tbh we agree: there is no 'right' or 'wrong' way to be a feminist. There is no 'better' way to support Kesha, only different ways. 

Yes, money will help her right now, and yes, creating a society in which victims of rape feel more able to come forward is essential. Why pit these two positive things against each other?
