Some liberals can take offense to almost anything. It’s amazing how a song like “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” that has been around for 50 years, can suddenly be the most offensive thing on planet earth, meanwhile killing innocent babies in the womb is totally palatable to these people.
Leftist celebrities are now uniting to bring the world a wholesome version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” complete with a pro-abortion shout out. So much for any pro-lifers who were looking for a more respectful version of the song, I guess.
The Pluralist reports:
Singer John Legend will release a rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” this Christmas featuring the line, “It’s your body, and your choice.”
The musician spoke out about his upcoming Christmas releases in an interview with Vanity Fair, explaining that he has changed the lyrics in collaboration with actress and writer Natasha Rothwell and singer Kelly Clarkson. The publication reported that Legend’s new lyrics give the song a “newfound sensitivity” that “feels genuine, not performative.”
The song has come under fire for what Vanity Fair calls its “date rapey” aspects, with proponents of the #MeToo movement saying that the song is sexist and manipulative and has no place in modern society. Some radio stations banned the song during the Christmas 2018 season.
“What will my friends think …” Clarkson will sing, to which Legend will interject. “I think they should rejoice.” Clarkson will ask “… if I have one more drink?”
“It’s your body, and your choice,” Legend will respond.
Incredible that they can assert this new version of the song comes with a “newfound sensitivity.” So, a holiday classic that no one found offensive for decades is now banned by the thought police, but everyone is supposed to embrace a song that promotes the idea that women should be able to have the consenting adult sex but then kill her baby should she become pregnant? Seems legit.
Where is the sensitivity for those who find abortion deplorable and reprehensible? Or for the millions of unborn babies murdered in the womb every year, for that matter?
Not to mention the fact that far-left liberals are all about sexual freedom yet they are the ones making a big deal about this song to begin with. The original song is indeed about a man who likely has an indecent proposal for a young woman and is pressuring her to get the chance to make it. If we’re being honest. But if this song were about two men, two women, or a woman seducing a man, it would be the song of the century. How many rap songs about beating or prostituting women are celebrated by the left while this vintage holiday classic is demonized? Such hypocrisy.
Deana Martin, the daughter of Dean Martin who sang one of the most well-known versions of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” had some harsh words for critics of the original song, saying, “There’s nothing bad about that song. And it just breaks my heart and I know my dad would be going insane right now … He would say, what’s the matter with you? You know, get over it. It’s just a fun song,”
“I was absolutely flabbergasted,” she went on, “It’s just insane. When I heard it and I said, this can’t possibly be. You know, it’s a sweet, flirty, fun, holiday song that, well, it’s been around for 50 years.”
There is nothing too unbelievable in 21st century “woke” America.
