Title: ‘PC stuff is getting ridiculous’: Radio stations axe Christmas classic due to #MeToo concerns

Many consider it a Christmas classic but radio stations are refusing to play the song ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ because it’s lyrics have run afoul of the #MeToo movement.

However fans are now pushing back against the banishment.

The yule-tide favorite was originally recorded for the 1949 film Neptune’s Daughter and it went on to scoop an Oscar in the Best Original Song category. It’s been a feature of the festive season every year since. However its days may be numbered because campaigners allege that it propagates rape culture.  

Its lyrics feature a man playfully appealing to his female guest to stay the night so she will avoid the snowstorm that’s blowing outside and critics allege that it has a “rapey” vibe.

The song has been covered by numerous artists since the original 1949 version. Among many others it has been performed by Rod Stewart and Dolly Parton, Ray Charles and Betty Carter and Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.

A radio station in Cleveland, Ohio is in the headlines after it axed the hit from its playlist following complaints from listeners and a Christmas-focused station in Ireland has followed suit, saying its listeners had also raised concerns.

The Cleveland-based Star 102 station announced its decision to stop playing the song in recent days. Host Glenn Anderson explained the decision in a blog post“We used to play the song ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside,’ but you’re the Christmas Executive Officer at Star 102 and you told us it’s no longer appropriate,” Anderson wrote. “I gotta be honest, I didn’t understand why the lyrics were so bad… Until I read them.”

Meanwhile the co-founder of Ireland’s Christmas FM told TheJournal.ie that station is axing the song because the lyrics “are of a different era.”

The president of the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Sondra Miller, supported the stations’ decision. “The character in the song is saying, ‘No,’ and they’re saying well, ‘Does no really mean yes?’ and I think in 2018, what we know is consent is ‘Yes’ and if you get a ‘No’ it means ‘No’ and you should stop right there,” she told local news outlet WJW-TV.

However, the stance seems to be at odds with the vast majority of the station’s listenership, at least if a Facebook poll can be believed, as a ballot on the station’s page shows that more than 90 percent of people think the song should be played.

Many wondered what songs might next be slapped on to the banned list. “I guess you should stop playing Santa Baby, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa and Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer because people think those are offensive too. This PC stuff is getting ridiculous, play whatever if people don’t like it they will turn the knob. You will never please everyone 100%,” commenter Michelle Nicola wrote.

Another woman added: “I’m actually part of the me too movement, and a survivor. I can only speak for my own experience, but personally I adore this song and have never been offended by it or freaked out by it.

I do not believe it’s about rape – it’s a playful banter from a time when a woman would have been concerned people would think badly of her for staying, even if she wanted to. I’m glad my husband and I will be enjoying it on our holiday playlist.

Unsurprisingly the controversial banning has sparked an outpouring of reaction on social media.

There are far too many people who "feel" offended over the tiniest little thing.

If you're "offended" by the song - don't listen to it.

These idiots shouldn't get to decide what the rest of us listen to.

The radio stations are cowards.

I'll bet anything that the biggest complainers listen to rap with the "bitches and hos" lyrics and don't carp about that.

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.
