“Baby It’s Cold Outside”: Old versus Purified versions
‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Backlash: As Stations Ban Song, Listeners Demand Its Return
Dean Martin’s Daughter Deana Speaks Out After the ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Controversy
Radio stations are banning ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ for its questionable language, but a historian says it was once a feminist anthem
and no doubt many more….
. . . .
so much ado as new semantics clash with perceptions of old values, but curiously not a word, at least none I have noticed, about the role the song played in the rise of anti-Western terrorism.
Seriously …. it was a turning point in the life of the man who was to become the ideologue of Islamist terrorism, like a certain decorated corporal learning of the Treaty of Versailles . . . .
The Founder of Islamist Extremism and Terrorism

The Pestilence again. Time to stop being polite with these loons. The History that isn’t being taught shows what happens when this gets out of hand. I’d rather it didn’t get to the point of Fire and Sword again, but the odds against are falling. Winter is Coming.
I never really paid attention to the lyrics, but after looking at them, they are a little date rapeish. But still… The big problem is that if you survey women even they will disagree about their view on such things. When the view is near universal then it’s pretty clear, but when large portion of women approve of something its difficult to be solidly against it.
The lyrics are a vile projection of white patriarchal rape thought and a horrific statement of the white male’s perverse desire to invade and colonize the female body. Ban the song, the movie which serves as the sarcophagus and testimony perpetuating this monument to rape culture, and bulldoze the graves of all thought criminals who created this paen of anti wyminhood into oblivion. The sad sick music and entertainments created and perpetuated by the patriarchy need to be smashed down, and the bold stasis shattering symbol rich musics of autologous culture challenging poly sexual freedom unlocking rap statementing put in its place.
