Welcome To The Bitchery

A thing people older than me apparently are passionate about :

I have multiple co-workers and Facebook friends who are irate about Baby it's Cold Outside getting banned from our local radio.

Apparantly it’s “not Christmas” without hearing this particular song, even though I’d literally never heard it until seeing the movie Elf, so I don’t think it got that much radio play in the first place.

Anyway blah blah blah, technically at the time it was written, I guess it wasn’t about date rape (by the standards of the time...), but as viewed through a modern lense it’s definitely suggestive of that. It hasn’t aged well, and I don’t understand the fervent defensive front.


Plus also you can totally still listen to problematic music on your own time. Nobody will care.
