I’m going to answer this, despite the fact that whoever posted this probably won’t be reading it. I am also going to work under the assumption that they meant rape culture, not “tape” culture.
My initial reaction upon reading this was defensive anger. The more I thought about it throughout the day, though, the more I realized that it didn’t bother me because it’s true; the song is a terrible Christmas song. I listened to it a year ago with a more feminist understanding and realized, damn, this song is fucking creepy.
Why did I post it? I like She & Him, though I get it if people are over Zooey Deschanel. That’s fine. I like Christmas music, though I get it if people don’t like Christmas music. I merely posted it because it was something that popped up in my Google Reader and sorta fit into the blog and the season. I forgot about the creepy message of the song.
I created this blog when I was job searching a year and a half ago as something to fill my time with and I made more of an effort to put better music onto the blog. I don’t have the time anymore to run this blog so if you think the blog hasn’t been posting decent stuff, you are right. I stopped putting effort into it.
If you think you can run this site better, message me and I’ll hand it over. In the meantime, if you don’t like my lazy postings, there are much better female musician Tumblrs out there, just look for them.
