Baby, It’s Cold Outside

This song is not about rape, it’s about seduction and flirtation.

The subtlety is lost on the humorless, fun-hating, virtue-signaling social justice wankers, who claim it’s a rape song.  Because the man continues to try and seduce the woman after her initial rejection.

Do they really want to make sex entirely transactional? “I would like permission to have sexual intercourse with you, do you consent?” “My consent is given, but conditional and subject to revocation at any time. Do you accept my terms?” “Your terms are acceptable, let us complete the appropriate forms and prepare to commence intercourse.”

Yes, they do. They want to exterminate all joy.

Good Lord, I despise the left.

By the way, while shopping last week, I heard a version on a store’s PA system that was a duet between two women. I wonder if that’s still considered a rape song.

On a related note, “Everyday Feminism” presents “10 Questions Every Intersectional Feminist Should Ask on a First Date.” This list is a public service to our straight male readers. If a woman asks you any of these questions on a date, excuse yourself, walk calmly to the door, and run, don’t walk, to your car or a safe place where you can call an Uber.

  1. What do the SJWs think about vibrant rap “music”?

    No pics but NSFW:

    Also, I’d think those ten questions from a guy or gal would be the cue for the other guy or gal to exit. Immediately.

  2. Anybody who has seen the film Neptune’s Daughter knows that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is coquettish and playful. “Gee, I can’t stay, what would the neighbors think? *wink wink*”

    The line I most often hear get slapped with the “rape” accusation is the “Say, what’s in this drink?”. This is a consequence of cultural mistranslation: Millennials immediately think it means “roofie,” but in the 30s-50s, it was used as a plausible deniability tactic, suggesting that the speaker was drunk, partially excusing the speaker of any actions he or she may have taken from that point forward.

  4. Just another example of the past being judged by today’s standards.

  5. “Say, what’s in this drink?” I always took that to mean he gave her a strong drink, maybe three fingers of bourbon instead of two. Very different from what the connotation is today.

  8. And to third wave feminists will wonder where all the men are? They are buying sex robots!

  9. Good stuff. Even when I read the article through a non-cis person of color filter, it’s still BS.

  10. I say, let the leftists and their complicit Toadies continue to irrationally opposed Human Nature. They will indeed become extinct.

  11. There was so much contradiction in her article…she has Jewish friends but she wants Palestine to succeed…she reads “feminist” and female commentary on the Koran, which according to the majority of imams is sacreligious and inappropriate and should not exist…and she completely left out the fat people from her discussion…she’s ridiculous and completely not worth the time to sit with and waste time on even one single question.

  12. @ JuJuBee: Like I said, “What’s in this drink?” was the predecessor of the phrase, “Blame it on the alcohol.” If the couple claimed that she was too drunk to walk home in a snowstorm, the neighbors can’t fault them, and neither can the family.

  13. TADFORD: There was so much contradiction in her article …

    I’m sure comparable questions could be written w/o the contradictions. I’m sure they could be written all across the political spectrum. They would still be maladroit.

    VtK: If a woman asks you any of these questions on a date, excuse yourself, * walk calmly to the door, and run, don’t walk, to your car or a safe place where you can call an Uber.

    * pay the check,

  14. I just hate how cheesy the song is. It’s cheesier than Wisconsin! ;P

  15. I think the undertone of the song is that the woman really wants to stay, but she’s not a cheap tart and she wants to make the man work for it. It’s charming, really.

  16. The 10 questions woman, and that site are frightening examples of the stupidity, hypocrisy, ignorance and hate of the feminist left.
    Too bad few will see that stupidity, hypocrisy, ignorance and hate, except the ones learning the those qualities from this site.

    The best is the anti-capitalism question in an article topped by a request to donate money to keep the site going!!! Without capitalism, where would one get the money to donate??

  17. Questions for Ms. Intersectional Feminist:

    1. If you feel bad about stealing land from Native Americans, do you plan to give yours back?

    2. If you hate capitalism, do you plan to give away all of your psrsonal property? And do you intend to move into a commune or a co-op?

    3. If you support BDS, do you plan to shut down your EF site, since the internet is heavily dependent on Israeli-developed technology?

    And, do you realize that BDS requires doing without email, voice mail, 4G devices, mobile phones, Windows XT, anti-virus software and firewalls, stem cell research, laser surgery, AZT, Copaxone, generic drugs, protein replacement therapy, radiation-free X-rays, modern insulin-injecting devices, non-steroidal treatment for allergies, and treatments for MS, stroke, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s?

  18. That reminds me of when, in the 1980s, the Dead Kennedys…(the band), was being trashed for having art on their album which [looked like penises, and,…oh no…MAYBE looked like art about sex acts.

    (Just my opinion- if you’re that worried about your kids seeing nudes, and stuff like that, never let them see the nude + copulating statues on ancient Indian temples + other ancient buildings).

    Anyhow- when the Dead Kennedys were being trashed by certain politicians, + other people, a group of rock stars, punk bands, and heavy metal bands showed up at the hearings to say 1] the art on that album’s cover isn’t so bad for people, and 2] that they felt that DK should have the freedom to do the art that they want to do,

    The 1970s + 1980s Country singer, + pop singer, JOHN DENVER, showed up at the hearings to defend D.K. and the freedom to show art under the 1st amendment.

    His point was- he did the [1970s?] song, “Rocky Mountain High”.

    His song meant that- his being in the Rocky Mountains made him feel happy and very ecstatic.

    ….And a lot of people misunderstood his song, and said: “his song says he’s high. That means he’s using illegal pot to get high!”

    So John Denver’s view was: in the USA- write whatever songs you want to write-

    and make whatever art you want to make, because whatever you do, some people will misunderstand your art or song, and think bad things about you, anyway!

    [By the way, (copulating statues) is just a figure of speech. But, like John says, I shouldn’t worry about that].

  19. Somewhere in the late ’60’s, the culture took a sharp turn. (I think it was caused by Viet Nam.)

    1967 is a useful benchmark: 2017 is a half century later and 1917 is a half century earlier.

    Which half century has produced the greatest “book” (catalogue) of popular songs?

    1917-1967 produced the works George M. Cohen, Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Frank Loesser, Jay Livingston, Henry Mancini, Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, Arthur Swartz, Harry Warren, Victor Young, Sammy Can, Dorothy Fields, Ira Gershwin, Oscar Hammerstein, Lorenz Hart. Johnny Mercer, etc.

    The “Book” includes Stormy Weather, Star Dust, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Mona Lisa, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Mood Indigo, All the Things You Are, Lullaby of Broadway, High Hopes, Our Love is Here to Stay, Ac-cen-tchu-uate the Positive, Dancing in the Dark, People Will Say We’re in Love, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, Luck Be a Lady, etc., etc., etc.

    And there were singers: Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire, Rosemary Clooney, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Dick Haymes, Billie Holiday, Howard Keep, Peggy Lee, Dick Powell, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughan, Margaret Whiting, etc. etc., etc.

    There were radio stations, juke boxes, 78’s and 45’s.

    The songwriters and performers listed above merely scratches the surface. It basically skips the Rock and Roll era and the 60’s.

    Now whistle up a comparable list of “timeless” popular music from the second fifty years.

    Billy Joel, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash, James Taylor, John Denver, Burt Bacharach, and others have added to the book of “timeless” songs, but there is no medium left for getting them to the public.

    First, it was the tape recorder, then the cassette and now the computer chip that allows us to build our own music library. Gone are the disc jockeys,”The Hit Parade”, Casey Kasem, the memory lane radio channels, the album and even the music stores. MTV died in its crib. Television variety shows are history. American Idol, my left foot.

    V the K nails the theme of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” What 2017 likely can’t understand is that the song is not about getting laid. Its suggestive of being indulgently engaged. Just like “I Want to Hold Your Hand” didn’t have a second verse about getting naked.

    We came through and out of Viet Nam a changed culture. And we were bombarded with liberalism and “Is God Dead?” and we went “slip sliding away” into self-gratification and ego-centrism. Fifty years of it and counting.

    In 1977, we had Carter’s “misery index” and crippling inflation and malaise. In 1987, Reagan was wrapping up as Communism was collapsing. In 1997, Clintoon replaced O.J. Simpson as the center of salacious gossip. In 2007, DemonizingRats had turned Iraq into George Bush’s Viet Nam, just as Teddy Kennedy promised they would do. In 2017, Trump Derangement Syndrome has cut into the heart of the country.

    Some half century for popular music. No wonder we were desperate to hear a guy sing: “I’m a lineman for the county.” “And I need you more than want you, And I want you for all time/And the Wichita lineman is still on the line.” Please give us something to hold onto. How about Lee Greenwood and “God Bless the USA!” It ain’t exactly “God Bless America” but it will have to do.

    There will always be a corner for “love songs” and vocal stylists, but what you “whistle while you work” is no longer from the top 10, because there is no universal aggregator to play music into our hearts and souls. That is a shame, because as William Congreve wrote, in The Mourning Bride, 1697: “Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast, To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.”
