Jake Gyllenhaal is, in all likelihood, doing just fine. He is not dead in a ditch, he is neither quaking nor shooketh, and his wig sits, stubbornly unsnatched, atop his head. The newly released ten-minute version of “All Too Well” lays out his failings as Swift’s ex-boyfriend in sharp, specific detail, but he’s probably not going to be cancelled, or even quasi-cancelled, for this. Celebrities have been called out for a lot worse, in song or otherwise, and moved on with their careers intact. This is not to say that “All Too Well,” either the beloved original on Red or the unedited version released on Friday, fails at its purpose. It’s honest in its anger and its hurt, but it doesn’t feel like a song of spite or hate. Even in its edited five-minute version, “All Too Well” includes rich details about just what made this romance worth singing about in the first place: Swift has danced with her unnamed (but clearly Gyllenhaal) lover “in the kitchen ‘round the refrigerator light,” and she talks about endearing old pictures of a gawky, glasses-wearing young boy playing tee-ball. She knows him too well to hate him.

The key is in the keys. Or rather, the key is on the key chain. I mean, not that key, I…let me start over.Taylor Swift has had the kind of career that college professors make courses about. One course could chart her transformation from country darling to pop megastar, perhaps analyzing the changing definition of what it means to be “authentic” in pop music. Another could discuss the parallel rise of Swift and our current social media ecosystem, along with the ways the former made use of the latter. Of course, another could go into her songwriting: the symbols, the messages, the importance of December and 2:30 a.m. But maybe the most intriguing option is a feminist studies course, a look at how a misogynistic culture has grappled with Taylor Swift. But the idea of avowed male feminists being hypocrites, while sometimes true, is low-hanging fruit. Swift is suggesting something more nuanced: that the patriarchy is so deeply ingrained into our society that someone like Gyllenhaal may not see any hypocrisy at all. Gyllenhaal, as written, is not a card-carrying villain of some Lifetime movie of the week. Similarly, the people who dismissed Swift as a basic bitch making music for airheaded girls might not think they have a sexist bone in their body. But some sexist ideas become so widespread that they’re accepted on an unconscious level. It’s normal for a thirty year old man to date a college-aged young woman. Teenage girls are stupid, frivolous, and shallow, and so are the things they like. Much as “polite” racism is just as insidious as proud bigotry, these assumptions are damaging whether or not they’re purposeful. And yet, there are some things Taylor Swift can do. There are some things only Taylor Swift, in her unique position and with her unique gifts, can do. She can turn a dispute with her old label over the rights to her masters into a series of career-spanning retrospectives. She can use her cultural currency to make a critically-acclaimed short film and take over SNL for ten whole minutes. And she can take the details of a fling with an Oscar-nominated actor and make them feel universal to anyone whose heart was broken by a man.
