Do You Find ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Offensive?
'Baby It's Cold Outside' the catchy, playful, holiday song about a guy trying to convince a girl to stay at his house using the treacherous weather as an excuse, was written in 1944; well before the #metoo movement and PC climate that we live in today. The song has been banned by a radio station in Cleveland after the station fielded multiple complaints from listeners. Do you think the song is inappropriate due to it's 'suggestive' nature?
In a story published by Entertainment Weekly, it explains that the duet has been remade multiple times including a version sung by Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart as well as Michael Buble and Idina Menzel.
Readers had quit the opinion after hearing about the song being banned. "Am I dreaming?" one person wrote, "This is so utterly ridiculous. People need to get over themselves and stop desperately looking for things to be offended by"
Another commenter stated that "The MeToo movement wasn’t created for reasons like this" while another commenter fired back "No" the person claimed, "It was created for exactly situations like this."
Back and forth we go, just like the song.
The neighbors might think (Baby it's bad out there)
Say what's in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell) (Why thank you)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried (What's the sense of hurtin' my pride?)
I really can't stay (Baby don't hold out)
Baby it's cold outside
