This classic Christmas song is not feminist approved – and now the Washington Post is calling for its lyrics to be changed.
The New York Post has already called for the banning of “Gone with the Wind” and “Sixteen Candles,” no less than America’s greatest novel, “Huckleberry Finn,” is under attack in academia, and now, based on an anti-science (and outright dishonest) interpretation of the lyrics, The Washington Post wants the Christmas song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” banned or rewritten.
The humorless feminist calling for the ban is the Post’s Jessica Contrera who, in full well-I-never mode, assumes we are all elitists who, like her, hear the song while “waltzing through Macy’s” or “maybe sipping an overpriced holiday drink, or ice skating with your kids”.
Actually, those of us who live in the real world of the Obama Economy, are most likely to hear the Frank Loesser classic at Walmart or on the car radio while stuck in traffic.
Church Lady Contrera attacks the song as “icky,” claims that it “is becoming notorious for being creepy at best, encouraging of date rape at worst,” and appears a tad bitter over the fact that Loesser’s lyrics have not been censored and rewritten:
The lyrics haven’t changed; the female role in the duet has always been singing “the answer is no” as the man pressures her to stay. But society’s evolving views on the prevalence of rape, especially between non-strangers, has pushed criticism of a Christmas classic into the mainstream.
