    I guess it’s not Cold Outside anymore...

    So, apparently “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is verboten in the era of #metoo.

    I get it. To be honest, I’ve always thought there was something a little pervy about the lyrics.

    But....if we’re pulling that song from the airwaves, can we pull “Santa Baby”, too??? It obviously promotes prostitution via transactional sex for monetary gain.

    Fair point. And while we’re on the subject... the whole notion of a fat elf committing multiple counts of “breaking and entering” sends a pretty poor message as well.

    Don't forget to call PETA about the enslavement of the reindeer.
    Just because you won't listen to reason does not mean I have to listen to idiocy.

    How about when George Bailey stole Mary's clothes?

    And the old perv on the porch is yelling for George to kiss her.

    Then later, somebody says old Mary became a spinster without George to make her an honest woman.

    Ciminetly.

    It's A Wonderful Life... not!

    I would say rapey. I can't get more out of it than that now.

    Lots of things are that way now. Films, songs, books, it can be very jarring to go back to something you enjoyed in the past and see it with new eyes from the current perspective.

    Yet I still like to watch The Quiet Man. So does my wife.

    BTW, I appreciate the Santa takes in this thread, very much.

    Well, don’t get me started on the whole figgy pudding debacle...

    “Bring it out here”???
    “We won’t go until we get some”???

    It’s extortion, I tells ya’!

    Betty Garrett was one of the Hollywood actors blacklisted during the Red Scare of McCarthyism.

    "On The Town," with an absolutely star-studded cast who were at the top of their games (Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller, and Vera Ellen), is probably her most recognized picture.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    All the Looney Tunes I grew up with are banned now. Do cartoons like Pepe LePew really turn kids into pervy adults? Did the likes of Lauer/O'Reilly/Cosby/Weinstein even watch Looney Tunes??

    Who decided this song was too "rapey"? I don't play this stuff for fun, I'm only forced to listen to it while shopping, and I can't hear the words anyway. Maybe that's why it doesn't bother me. Or does the singer ask if it's okay for him to whip it out while he blocks the exit? That would be different.

    How is this song any worse than Bob Seger's "We've Got Tonight" or trillions of others?

    All these puritan values aren't getting us anywhere as a nation (see: P.O.) There are loads of worse songs out there, a song for every occasion, be it puritan or pervy or comfortably in-between.

    Apparently, you haven't heard the long version, with all the "lost" verses. Once she's locked in, he comes out of the bathroom in a bathrobe that's hanging open and demands a foot rub. Etc.

    I believe she references “shrinkage” in that verse... Baby It’s Cold Outside...

    Christine, Looney Tunes is a good analogy and the argument is similar. Content in entertainment only drives certain (often unstable) people to act on what they see or hear. But we live in a hypersensitive time and we’re connected to each other like never before.
