Is the Classic Song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Problematic?

Here’s the Scoop

In a climate where political correctness increasingly collides with tradition, the classic holiday song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” finds itself at the center of a cultural tug-of-war.

Once a beloved staple of the holiday season, this song has in recent years come under fire, with critics labeling it as outdated and inappropriate in the context of modern sensibilities about consent and gender dynamics.

Originally written in 1944, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has been covered by countless artists over the decades, enchanting listeners with its playful call-and-response duet. However, its lyrics have been scrutinized and criticized by some who argue that the song perpetuates notions of coercion and undermines the importance of consent.

This controversy represents a broader debate about the evolving standards of what is considered socially acceptable and the reevaluation of historical works of art and entertainment through a contemporary lens. While some view this as a necessary progress towards a more respectful and aware society, others see it as an overreach, a threat to artistic expression and cultural heritage.

    Has the whole world lost its mind? Can’t believe this ! With the trash spewed out in rap songs this little song is attacked. I give up – this is not a world I want to live in. If this crap doesn’t stop we are doomed.

    Political correctness and it more virulent strain known as “Woke” are insidious cultural cancers that destroy their host societies internally while imparting an euphoric false sense of well being! Once either, or both, reach a certain stage, as they appear to have reached in this nation, remmission is unlikely!

    I am SO sick of all the “Politically correct” WOKESTERS. How is this for being politically correct, “They can all go to Hell!”

    I am surprised that they haven’t declared snow racist.

    The song was used twice in the 1949 movie “Neptune’s Daughter.” In one scene, Ricardo Montalban is attempting to get Esther Williams to stay with him because it is too cold to go outside. But in another scene, the song is used again when Betty Garrett tries to get Red Skelton to stay with her. Critics pounce on the first scene and call it sexist, but they ignore the second scene. If the first is sexist, so is the second! Of course, neither is sexist. It is simply a cute song about flirting. Grow up, lefties!

    In the 1940 era, sexual mores were highly repressed and much that was filmed had to be ‘left on the cutting room floor’. The sensors would not have allowed it to be presented as part of any movie if they had considered it in any way as ‘racy’. You could not show a pregnant woman on stage or screen, nor could you show married couples sharing the same bed. Brazierrs could not be worn in advertising, so in the 1960s ‘Playtex Living Bras”pulled a few strings’ and had a marionette model a bra.

    If this song is coercion to the point that it should be banned, then just about every sales spiel and advertising campaign should be banned as well, as many are just as coercive as the lyrics of this sone.

    Interesting….I just saw a flyer at work promoting the Covid vaccine and it uses the title of this song with a slight twist—
    “Baby it’s Covid outside”, time to get your “updated” Covid shot
    Apparently it’s still good enough to coerce people to get inoculated.
