I think Taylor Swift is a good role model for kids and/or teenagers for a lot of different reasons. Any person who opposes this argument should take con for this argument.

I think she is not......she has been homeschooled...she is setting the example of trying to escape from problems you have in your life.....
also she mostly talks about her being good and the unfalliable one in the songs where it was always the opposite persons mistake....
Taylor swift's songs usually put teenagers into dreams where they hope that everything could be oh-so-perfect..!!

First off, thank you for excepting my debate.
Second, Taylor Swift was not home schooled and did not do anything to escape her problems except using music to turn things around.
Even though most of her songs are about love, they teach you lessons. They do not imply that her dreams are oh-so-perfect.
In her songs, the mostly sings on how the people you thought were good, are actually bad. Most girls want 'prince charming' to sweep them off their feet and have a happily ever after, which Taylor Swift does want, just like an other normal girl.
She is a great role model. The statement where you say that teenagers will fall into a oh-so-perfect dream and hope that everything will be like that, is false. It takes teenagers dreams and makes them bigger, and they realize more than what they did before.
Taylor Swift, as a child was made fun of, and was a basic outcast at her school, which happens to a lot of people. But with that fact in mind, it shows that even a small town girl can be as big as she turned out to be. A lot of people admire her and look up to her. Her music is inspiring. But, she never says that there is some oh-so-perfect life that you can just by luck get. Nobody is perfect and she partially shows that in her songs.
Her music also gets people to turn from an angry, or even sad mood to a happy/cheerful mood.
She also teaches her fans that if you keep trying, and keep your head up, most of your dreams can come true that way. Even though some dreams do not come true, if you work hard they can.

A strong case could certainly be made for con but I'm already in a music debate + one other.

I'm tempted to take this and argue about the metaethical status of the term 'good'.
