Taylor Swift hears John Cleese make a joke at the expense of women. She doesn't keep quiet.

Taylor Swift recently appeared on the British talk show "The Graham Norton Show" with über-famous Monty Python member John Cleese. After John mega insulted her cat, Olivia, he went on to both mega insult cats AND women. Dude. No.That's when new feminist and BFF to Planet Earth manages to stand up for ladies (AND her cat) in one eloquent sentence. This is what unapologetically speaking your mind looks like. She doesn't just write ~*~magical ~*~ songs, she writes amazing comeback lines.

For you non-Brits, "cussed" is slang for stubborn and difficult to deal with.


And that's Taylor Swift slang for shutting. it. down.

*CROWD CHEERS*

So get this. After realizing she'd been "taking a feminist stance without actually saying so" for a while, Ms. Swift, was like, yeah, I'm a feminist, fo sho. And yeah, she's been sticking up for herself and others for a while (EVER), and this is a great example of The Power of the Swift Stance.

You just got served, well meaning but really patronizing bad manners/bad joke moment! Her delivery is purrfect.

And to add fierceness to amazingness, she even threw Instagram shade at Cleese after the interview!

I know she's busy writing songs about way better things and just generally being who I want to be when I grow up, but I would *not* mind a B-side live acoustic version of "The Proper Cat (Meredith Straight Chillin')."

Just sayin'.

There are few people on planet Earth that know what it feels like to be bullied quite like Monica Lewinsky.

In her early 20s, she became the focus of one of the biggest scandals in American history after engaging in a sexual relationship with former president Bill Clinton.

She was the butt of nighttime talk show jokes, harassed by politicians, and constantly pursued by the paparazzi. Twenty years later, she's survived the scandal and become a tireless advocate for helping those who've been bullied.

The great thing about American democracy is the separation of powers. The federal government has rights, states have rights, counties have rights, cities have rights, and we, as people, have rights, too.

Heck, even animals have some rights in the good ol' U S of A.

The president of the United States is not a king or a dictator so a team of U.S. mayors, led by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, are asking to go over his head to negotiate directly at next month's UN climate change conference in Santiago, Chile.

It can take time to feel comfortable in a new home, especially if you think there are scary monsters lurking about, which is why six-year-old Hayden Williams had trouble sleeping in his new room.

Hayden used to share a room with his 15-year-old sister, but when the Eldridge, Iowa family moved, each kid got their very own. While his sister was excited for the change, Hayden was having a hard time adjusting to the new arrangement.

"My little man has been having severe anxiety since we moved into the new house…I've tried everything under the sun to get him to sleep in his own room. Nothing is helping," his mom, Amanda Williams, wrote on Facebook.
