Backlash as more radio stations ban ’Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ over lyrics

Bay Area radio station KOIT joined the list of radio stations in the US and Canada to ban the 1949 Oscar winning song ’Baby, It’s Cold Outside’. This comes amid critics panning the lyrics of the song as one which promote date rape. However, listeners upset at the station’s decision have demanded the ban be lifted, leading to the station conducting a poll to reconsider its decision.

I thought women were tough? Is this really how weak they are?! So does that mean that they'll ban virtually all rap music too?

the song isn't rapey, listen to the words, she WANTS to stay and wants him to prove to her that he wants her to stay and it's a cat and mouse playful song not some rapey ballox some over sensitive babies deep evil and mysoginistic and blah blah blah. women across the world are being forced into genital mutilation, being forced to cover their faces because of their religion and having their testimony only equal 50% of a man's. maybe refocus you're efforts to something that really matters and leave this shit alone. but I guess that stuff is hard and this is an easy win, lazy fucks don't wanna do work to get equality (which they have) and instead bitch and moan about little things they take as offensive.

And Rudolph is full of bullying. Can we all agree these people are insidious scum with the singular goal of dismantling western culture.

I agree with he ban, a husband and his wife singing a flirty holiday song is horrid and promotes rape culture, which means that other men will become rapists when they hear this song. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go defend muslim’s treatment of women. /s

A man trying to convince a woman to stay the night with him is rape? Well, just an FYI for everyone. I guess I am a rapist.

It would be much easier if we just banned feminism. Then you wouldn't have this nonsense. They were protesting about knickers here in the UK!

its because the song was written by whites. if it were a song made by black people no one would care. anti white racism is abundant and evil.

If this is the way we are going then I'm offended by every song that contains the word ni**er, bitch, hoe, slut, rape, weed, fuck, cunt and any other word than can be offensive. So where will that leave us? With classical music and fucking jazz, I fucking hate jazz. I don't want to live in that world.

What happened to freedom of expression...? Radio stations should play what they want, its not their problem if some lonely sjw types get offended. Offense is taken, not given

This is so stupid. Some people have nothing better to do than criticise old song lyrics. How pathetic!

Baby It's Cold Outside is a problem for one reason. Same as Jingle Bells, White Christmas, Merry Christmas, etc. We keep giving inches on this BS like we forgot the motivational speech from Any Given Sunday.
