Shortly after I read this incredible column from a few days ago, about the harsh ways in which women are judged by men and by each other, I became aware of a relevant shitstorm. See, at the Golden Globes a couple of months ago, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler unabashedly told Taylor Swift to go easy on...
