THE feminists, having time on their hands, have come after the song Baby, It’s Cold Outside. This song, from the 1949 movie Neptune’s Daughter, allegedly encourages rape. We are to believe this scene of flirting and persuasion is in fact ‘a sexual assault’.
We at TCW believe the best response is to post a video of the original song here (it’s followed by another version where the roles are reversed).
You can see why the feminists are offended – they are jealous because deep down they know it will be a rare occasion indeed when they might enjoy an evening of flirting.
First, the man is wearing a suit and although not my type he has clearly made an effort as opposed to falling out of bed and wearing a T-shirt for this occasion. She is a classic beauty, very feminine with a slim waist and perfect figure. You just don’t see couples like this any more.
He tries to persuade her to stay, as it is too cold outside to go home. She is resistant at first but is eventually convinced. That it is her choice to stay seems to go over the heads of the feminists completely.
So sure, the feminists are angry as they can’t understand this scene or the song because they have probably never been seduced in their entire lives. And swiping right on Tinder, I suspect, is a poor substitute.
It is a great duet, difficult to pull off, and the choreography of the scene is also perfect. We can only hope it is this year’s Christmas Number 1.
