“Baby It’s Cold Outside” Has Been Banned, Called “Rape Song” Because of #MeToo Movement.
A beloved Christmas song that has been out since the 40’s has now fallen victim to the #MeToo movement. “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been banned on a Cleveland, Ohio radio station.
This is when you know your cause has gone too far. Yes, the times have definitely changed. People are overly sensitive, too politically correct and are in need of “safe spaces” with coloring books and bubbles… And these are adults we’re talking about, not children.
Many listeners of the radio station actually spoke out against the song which lead to the stations decision to ban it from playing this holiday season.
The #MeToo movement went from supporting people who have been through sexual assault to being used as a weapon against the other political side and ruining holiday classics.
If the radio station and its viewers had a real understanding of the 40’s and what a “different time” it was, they would see that this wasn’t a “rape song.”
This was a song about a woman who was looked down upon during that time if she was seen staying over at a man’s house whom she was not married to.
This woman wasn’t trying to get away from “being raped,” she was trying to stay inline with society’s expectations. Her male companion was trying to free her from the guilt of shame she’d feel for not meeting the expectations of society at that time.
This song is about sex, the urge for consensual sex and the fight of trying to keep her image as a good girl. That’s why she says, “There’s bound to be talk tomorrow… At least there will be plenty implied.”
This is another example of the left taking things way too far in their ultra sensitive world.
Here are all of the lyrics below:
Baby It’s Cold Outside
I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped in)
So very nice (I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice)
My mother will start to worry (Beautiful what’s your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I’d better scurry (Beautiful please don’t hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (I’ll put some records on while I pour)
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
I like to think of it as opportunistic
The answer is no (But baby it’s cold outside)
The welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)
My sister will be suspicious (Gosh your lips look delicious!)
My brother will be there at the door (Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious (Gosh your lips are delicious!)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before) (And I don’t even smoke)
Say lend me a coat? (It’s up to your knees out there!)
You’ve really been grand, (I feel when I touch your hand)
But don’t you see? (How can you do this thing to me?)
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of my life long sorrow!)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia and died!)
I really can’t stay (Get over that old out)
Baby it’s cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!
