Radio stations ban "Baby, It's Cold Outside" in the Me Too era

Several radio stations in North America have stopped playing the holiday classic'Baby It’s Cold Outside following complaints about its lyrics

Frank Loesser, the song's writer, wouldn't be happy about the ban.

"Still, deejays are hesitant to play the song."I didn't understand why the lyrics were so bad", said Glenn Anderson from Cleveland's Star 102 radio, "... until I read them".

"At last check, the votes were running more than 90 percent in the song's favor".

'Absolutely I get it, ' she said. I would get annoyed because it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties.

The song is about a woman inside a man's home, and she says it's time to go home, but the man tries convincing her to stay by saying it's cold outside.

"People are calling in because it's basically triggering this reaction in them", Dickerson said, "These are people who've been through an experience".

Some have commented on the fact that when it was written (for a 1949 romantic comedy, Neptune's Daughter, starring Red Skelton, Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban), it was a trite piece of fluff that has been covered and popularized by every noteworthy singer since. "We just have to agree to disagree", she said. A column in 2010 made waves for referring to the song as "date-rapey", and Urban Dictionary referred to the song as the "Christmas Date Rape Song" as far back as 2002. "I'm so irritated by this!" (It's like) people, sit down. "I think we have to look at that".

But Twitter reactions to King's sentiments appeared overwhelmingly positive. "We are cultivating a nation of babies", one user wrote. "Keep Baby it's Cold Outside in the air!" tweeted another. "The Me Too movement is important and real". A poll on the WDOK Facebook page Wednesday showed overwhelming support to bring the song back.

"This song is not about an abuse of power, it is about flirtation and that is how flirtation was in those days", Susan said, adding that she doesn't want the song connected to the #MeToo movement.
