Taylor Swift faces a lot of criticism about her love life, but this latest critique might be the weirdest one yet.
Us Weekly reports that the “Blank Space” singer’s vagina was compared to a ham sandwich by a Twitter user named Jennifer Myers. Myers, who describes herself as a conservative, Christian, mother from Baton Rouge, posted the following photo and tweet. It was allegedly in response to news that Taylor Swift had started dating Tom Hiddleston two weeks after breaking up with Calvin Harris.
The reason I preach #Christianity. My daughters represent the right. Taylor Swift’s vagina represents the left. pic.twitter.com/4blQ5FrTJo

The photo and tweet went viral and Taylor Swift fans were quick to call Myers out for slut-shaming Taylor Swift. They also questioned whether she understood the basics of female anatomy. The photo even spawned a hashtag on Twitter: “#ifmyvaginawereasandwich.”
@southern_mayers 4) its really embarrassing when grown women don’t understand how women’s bodies work.

Ma’am, just because your daughter has a tidy ham sandwich doesn’t mean she never sneaks a taste of salt pork at the mercantile

@southern_mayers you…you know sexual activity has NO bearing on the appearance of a woman’s labia right? You are an adult?

Myers later sought to clarify her tweet with a blog post.
“Let me be clear. I am NOT shaming Taylor Swift. She is shaming herself. She is a role model. … She is in the public eye and should be setting a good example of purity and Christianity. Instead she is flaunting her sexual escapades with all of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities and is now moved on to some even below that. Her conquests could fill a small stadium or certainly a barn at this point.”
“The left sandwich is far more ragged and worn looking and rather unattractive to the eye. I see this as Taylor’s symbolic promiscuity,” she continued. “The right is much more neat, clean and pure. This represents my daughters’ innocence and purity because they were raised correctly.”
However, Taylor Swift is probably too busy being the top-paid entertainer on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list to worry about any commentary on her anatomy. Forbes released its list of highest celebrity earners on Monday and Taylor Swift is at the top, having earned $170 million between June, 2015, and June, 2016. The reason for the huge payday? The sold-out 1989 Tour that earned Swift about $5 million-per-night in ticket sales and broke The Rolling Stones’ North American touring record. She also added some dollars to her bank account via advertising deals with Diet Coke, Keds, and Apple.

Swift was also able to beat a long list of other highly-successful female entertainers, including Adele at No. 9 ($80.5 million); Madonna at No. 12 ($76.5 million); Rihanna at No. 13 ($75 million); and Katy Perry at No. 63 ($41 million).

Taylor Swift’s former boyfriend, Calvin Harris, also made the Forbes list at No. 21. He made $63 million last year. As USA Today notes, if Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift had stayed together, they would have been the highest-earning couple ever on the Celebrity 100 list. Their earnings would have been more than double that of Beyonce and Jay Z, the entertainment industry’s reigning power couple.
Although Taylor Swift topped the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, Kim Kardashian is currently on the cover of the magazine. Kim is at No. 42 on the list, having earned $51 million from her mobile app game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.
But Taylor Swift could soon dominate the mobile app world too as she currently has a game that’s set to be released in the near future, USA Today reports.
