I wish I could knew this YouTuber channel.: Butt Connoisseur @SmooGoo Never. Work. For. Youtubers. THIS is what comes of the "exposure". I'm CRYING XD XD XD Late Christmas gift me also. I'm looking for artwork for my new YouTube channel. I need a banner, intro and outro cards and also reaction images of my character to use within videos (5 minimum). T also saw you do animations. I want 3 animations for my twitch channel (thumbs up, wave and blowing a kiss) and 3 badges. My character reterence is here Hi there! I'm afraid S50 is way to low for that amount of work. The animations alone, depending on how smooth you're wanting, would be between $40-S60 each. I'm actually incredibly busy with work right now and have a queue, so it might be better to look elsewhere for someone who's more free to complete your commissions for you:). (NOTE: tattoo MUST be correct, its incredibly sentimental). $50 This would be a great opportunity for you, I have many followers and you'd get a lot of fresh eyes on your work! Depending on how well you do, this could be the start of many future projects from me and I'm willing to throw in a couple of rts on your art to help you out also. ??? I wasn't offering to pay you, I was giving you the offer of paying me to be your promoter lol It's very reasonable fee given how big my channel is going to get. $45 is the lowest I'm willing to go, it's more than generous. You'll be sorry if you dorit take up this offer thought Need this done in 2 weeks. Look forward to working with you :) Show quoted text I wish I could knew this YouTuber channel.

Its that time of year again: Andrew Rannells @AndrewRannells I don't think any more people need to record Baby It's Cold Outside. I think we're good there teachingwithcoffee It's time to bring an end to the Rape Anthem Masquerading As Christmas Carol bigbutterandeggman Hi there! Former English nerd/teacher here Also a big fan of jazz of the 30s and 40s So. Here's the thing. Given a cursory glance and applying today's worldview to the song, yes, you're right, it absolutely *sounds* like a rape anthem. BUT! Let's look closer! "Hey what's in this drink" was a stock joke at the time, and the punchline was invariably that there's actually pretty much nothing in the drink, not even a significant amount of alcohol See, this woman is staying late, unchaperoned, at a dudes house. In the 1940's, that's the kind of thing Good Girls aren't supposed to do-and she wants people to think she's a good girl. The woman in the song says outright, multiple times, that what other people will think of her staying is what shes really concerned about "the neighbors might think" "my maiden aunt's mind is vicious," "there's bound to be talk tomorrow." But she's having a really good time, and she wants to stay, and so she is excusing her uncharacteristically bold behavior (either to the guy or to herself) by blaming it on the drink -unaware that the drink is actually really weak, maybe not even alcoholic at all. That's the joke That is the standard joke that's going on when a woman in media from the early-to-mid 20th century says "hey, what's in this drink?" It is not a joke about how she's drunk and about to be raped. It's a joke about how she's perfectly sober and about to have awesome consensual sex and use the drink for plausible deniability because she's living in a society where women aren't supposed to have sexual agency Basically, the song only makes sense in the context of a society in which women are expected to reject mens advances whether they actually want to or not, and therefore it's normal and expected for a lady's gentleman companion to pressure her despite her protests, because he knows she would have to say that whether or not she meant it, and if she really wants to stay she won't be able to justify doing so unless he offers her an excuse other than "I'm staying because I want to." (That's the main theme of the man's lines in the song, suggesting excuses she can use when people ask later why she spent the night at his house: it was so cold out, there were no cabs available, he simply insisted because he was concerned about my safety in such awful weather, it was perfectly innocent and definitely not about sex at all!) In this particular case, he's pretty clearly right, because the woman has a voice, and she's using it to give all the culturally-understood signals that she actually does want to stay but can't say so She states explicitly that she's resisting because shes supposed to, not because she wants to: "I ought to say no no no..." She states explicitly that she's just putting up a token resistance so she'll be able to claim later that she did whats expected of a decent woman in this situation: "at least I'm gonna say that I tried." And at the end of the song they're singing together, in harmony, because they're both on the same page and they have been all along So it's not actually a song about rape in fact it's a song about a woman finding a way to exercise sexual agency in a patriarchal society designed to stop her from doing so. But it's also, at the same time, one of the best illustrations of rape culture that pop culture has ever produced. It's a song about a society where women aren't allowed to say yes..which happens to mean it's also a society where women don't have a clear and unambiguous way to say no Source: matchingvnecks #baby it's cold outside #not about rape #so tired of having to explain this on 238,267 notes Dec 3rd, 2016 Its that time of year again
