A station in the mid-west is getting attention for banning “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” citing that in a #MeToo world, it comes across inappropriately. So I took a look at other holiday songs through the lens of political correctness and noticed that almost every Christmas song can be deemed inappropriate, if you choose to look at them in such a way.
Here are the top 10 examples:
10. Holly Jolly Christmas: Kiss her once for me? Unwanted advances.
9. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: Adultry.
8. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Bullying
7. Do You Hear What I Hear: No regard for the hearing impaired.
6. Santa Baby: Sounds like blackmail to me.
5. Frosty The Snowman: Why not snow-woman? Sexist.
4. White Christmas: Racist.
3. Santa Claus is Coming To Town: Sees you when you’re sleeping? Stalking.
2. Most Wonderful Time Of The Year: Everyone telling you to be of good cheer? Depression suppression.
1. The Christmas Song: Folks dressed up like Eskimos? Cultural appropriation.
I think you get the point. Being overly PC can sometimes take the fun out of life. Let’s not let the lens of political correctness ruin the traditions of the holiday season. If you look hard enough, you can find a fault in everything. Let it be.
Merry Christmas (And if that offends you, Seasons Greeetings),
