Strip away the trappings and you are left with the fact that both women are writers. Paglia uses her words to construct banal prose, Swift uses her words to construct playful poetry set to musical accompaniment. Even as Paglia is likely four times Swift in age and has probably produced hundreds of thousands of more words, it is Swift who has touched more ears and excited more minds with her writings.

Looking at the two of them, clearly Paglia is am embittered, venomous shrew. She is jealous that after a lifetime of producing what she considers serious and important research, the younger, livelier and popular Swift is more quotable.
