Washington DC and The Holy Land>Is 'Baby its Cold Outside" still part of your holiday rotation?

Well, is it?




DENVER — The only FM station in the Denver market exclusively playing Christmas music during the holiday season will no longer play “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

KOSI 101.1’s program director said that the decision was made based on listeners’ feedback.

“We are aware of the controversy regarding ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ and based on feedback from our listeners we have decided to pull the song from KOSI 101.1,” said Program Director Jim Lawson in an email to FOX31.

In the song, a man is trying to convince a woman to stay with him instead of returning home, citing poor weather. The female vocalist sings, “I really can’t stay,” to which the male singer responds, “But baby, it’s cold outside.”

Other lyrics sung by the woman include: “Say, what’s in this drink?” and “I simply must go … The answer is ‘no.’”

A Cleveland station recently gained national attention when it stopped playing the song, referencing the “Me Too” movement.

Shortly this story was published, KOSI 101.1 posted a poll on its website asking whether the song should be aired.

Its kind of dumb of them to ban it especially after they had a poll thinking the listeners would vote to ban it but 90% voted to keep it, and they kept it banned anyways. Though its a crappy song, I much prefer Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses. Nothing even remotely rapey about exchanging #s and making future date plans in the Grocery Store line while buying Cranberry Sauce.

And where does it say anything about actual sex?

If that's the case, he wouldn't be saying anything at all.

Come on now.

I assumed that?

I'm pretty sure my comments here have been "like it or don't like. Stop letting other people not liking something affect you. And you don't need to make excuses for liking something"

You're being presumptuous again. Maybe he just wants to cuddle.

No, I'm under the impression that conservatives complaining about people complaining is why conservatives on this board are complaining about people complaining, thinking their complaining is okay while other peoples complaining is not okay because other peoples complaining affects them so they have to complain about it.

Complaining, eh?

Yes. Conservatives are complaining about overly-sensitive people trying to ban things. That's a counter, not an impetus.

I'd imagine that you weren't a fan of conservatives trying to ban books that they didn't like, eh?

Conservatives trying to ban books from one particular store in a state I'm not a part of (the closest equivalence to the story) would cause me to roll my eyes and then forget about it.

Because, like this song and station, that wouldn't stop me from still enjoying that book.

How about trying to ban books from public libraries?

Yes. You did assume that. It's fairly obvious because your comments are following a certain structure; the song is creepy, why does someone feel the need to defend a creepy song, why would anyone react when someone is upset or offended over a creepy song. You have implied that you find the song creepy and you are arguing from the standpoint that the song is creepy. It would be more productive if you engaged in the discussion in this thread about specifically what is or is not creepy in the song. I'd be interested in hearing your opinions about the specifics because I don't share your opinion.

It Snowed Last Night..

8:00 am: I made a snowman.

8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.

8:15 - So, I made a snow woman.

8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.

8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead.

8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts.

8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.

8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white.

8:31 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up .

8:40 - The Police arrived saying someone had been offended.

8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role.

8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction.

8:45 - TV news crew from ABC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist.

9:00 - I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather.

9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services.

9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested.

Moral:

There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become, all because of snowflakes.

The song is creepy. Its a so called Christmas song that is about a man pressuring a women to stay for sexual reasons using questionable methods. It would be creepy in a regular song, but a Christmas song? I've pointed that out and others multiple times already. Its not my fault you can't read.

And yeah, I do wonder why people have to be so insecure that people noticing a song is creepy affects their enjoyment of a creepy song.

But hey, its not my personal problem you guys can't just be honest with yourself and say "something I like is a little creepy, and thats okay." There are worst songs out there, as people pathetically tried to whatabout, and its okay to like those too.

When you guys reach maturity and figure that kind of stuff out, it will great. I'm rooting for you.

Say with me "As an adult, I can like what I like, I don't have to make excuse or justifications. I don't care what other people think."

Actually, conservatives have tried to ban books form public libraries. So have liberals.

I'm asking if you support those efforts.

You'll either answer, or you won't.

And, it does have something to do with the article. These people wanted and got a ban of a song from a radio station that they found offensive. The same is true about book banning from public libraries.

Any other dots I can help line up for you?
