Bing Crosby, Doris Day, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
[Also sung by Dean Martin—and, now, Dean Martin’s daughter promises to sing, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” in defiance of left-wing, Christmas-hating, liberal dipsh*ts ]

…This #MeToo-era-cum-yuletide-season, radio stations are pulling the plug on that holiday earworm with lyrics that, to some, ring date-rape warning bells, rather than evoking innocent snow-bound flirtation.
The tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” with words that seemed charming when FDR was in office, may land with a tone-deaf thud on the ear of today’s listener.
But the stations banning the song have been met with a controversy of their own.
Cleveland’s WDOK put its foot down where the female voice could not, announcing its ban of the song last week.
“I do realize that when the song was written in 1944, it was a different time, but now while reading it, it seems very manipulative and wrong,” host Glenn Anderson wrote on the station’s web site. “The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place.”
[MEMO TO LIBERALS: I would be distressed if you don’t like this old Crosby tune. You know, a traditional, Christmas memory some still enjoy. However, possibly, if you tried sitting bare-assed on a sharply split rail, could that maybe make you happier?
