Badder bit*h than Taylor Swift?
Now, that is a hard task to complete. Twitter, however, was ready to deliver at a moment’s notice! Okay, I know what you’re thinking, 2017 has not been kind to Taylor Swift. And she hasn’t been helping herself either.
However, she does have some very loyal fans that still seem to love her to death. At least that is the only explanation I have for the Twitter user who posted the following tweet.

Twitter users took it literally.
That is why people started to tweet about all the women who were clearly much more badass than Taylor Swift. From Elizabeth Freeman to their own relatives, no one was excluded.
Let’s start with Malala.
At 15, @Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban for insisting that girls had the right to an education. At 17, she became the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in history. At 18, she opened a school for Syrian refugee girls in Lebanon. https://t.co/UjPdnoqc0o

Now that is badassery at its best!
Elizabeth Freeman was the first enslaved Black person to sue for freedom & win. She ended slavery in Massachusetts. https://t.co/kAi4vxzrLY

Then many people started to tell about their own badass relatives.
My mom, who in the 80s worked to pass the Ryan White Act, and regularly filled our house with queer & HIV+ kids & teens whose parents abandoned them or couldn’t care for them. https://t.co/wPphczKLZZ

Being glam is always the top priority.
My Grandma survived two concentration camps & rescued a friend who was about to be executed. She moved to DC knowing zero English & was always glam. https://t.co/qYaORWtWEb

Is she in any way related to Rapunzel?
During WWI my grandmother chased a German soldier out of her kitchen by repeatedly hitting him over the head with a frying pan. https://t.co/erk7rtCUOZ

She truly does deserve a salute.
My grandma who overcame breast cancer, raised 3 kids by herself, raised a paraplegic daughter in an ablist state, who forced a school to get a wheelchair ramp, who helped raise 10 grandkids, who didn't take anyone's shit, and who is still a bad bitch with a fake knee today. https://t.co/dk8oAjwmmM

And how could we forget about Star Wars?
Jyn Erso, a resistance fighter raised by Saw Gerrera who led Rogue One during the Battle of Scarif and who was instrumental in securing the Death Star blueprints that would prove monumental in the fate of the Rebel Alliance despite their initial lack of support. https://t.co/UVd84htQrS
