Taylor Swift is trying to rebrand herself from an "innocent girl who cries while writing love songs" to a "heartless tyrant who sits on a golden throne surrounded by snakes," but the internet isn't buying it. When @xnulz posted a still from Swift's music video "Look What You Made Me Do," asking people to "Name a badder bitch than Taylor Swift," they started an unstoppable storm of stories celebrating strong women throughout history.

From determined politicians and activists to artists and performers, these women have been pushing society to change for the better long before Taylor Swift dropped her album Reputation. Bored Panda has compiled some of the most hilarious and inspirational replies to the challenge. Scroll down to check out the responses, upvote your favorites and let us know if you agree with the Internet on this one in the comments.

Not sure if these sort of responses are really warranted here, this kind of act does make anyone badass bitch, instead a good person. May be some people use the word bad ass bitch in another context as well, and I don't know.

Ok I mentioned this earlier but here's what Grace did in part...Grace O'Malley an Irish Piratess who held off the English, got Queen Elizabeth to side with her against the Queen's own captain, robbed and stole many English ships with her men, married twice, taking her second husband's fort as collateral as she declared divorce to him. Had a lover- a Spanish sailor from the Armada when it broke apart on the Irish shores, had a child on board ship and then got up and led her men to victory when they were losing as she was giving birth. She died peacefully at a late age too :)
