Here Are Some Great Piece Of Feminist Clothing You Can Wear To This Year’s Christmas Gathering

Alright, fam, who is sick of dropping dough on a brand new outfit to wear to la sala on Noche Buena just to stuff yourself silly and fall asleep? Yeah, we are, too. Whether you grew up with Noche Buena ending in La Misa del Gallo (the only reason your fam cares how you look), or ending in a food coma, this is a new year.

Here’s the opportunity: whether you’re with your family or in your home church, we’re not wearing a prim and proper dress this year. We’re donating our money to Planned Parenthood, putting on a political tee, blazer and walk into that sala ready to smash the patriarchy.

Classic Christmas Song ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Gets PC Makeover For 21st Century

johnlegend / kellyclarkson / Instagram

We are in a new era in which women are demanding equal pay and saying enough is enough when it comes to sexual abuse. It’s a new stance that stems from the “Me Too” Movement and the “Women’s March” that shows women do not have to take it anymore. If you are woke you cannot be inappropriate. If you’re a fan of the cancel culture, then it’s time to shut out things from the past than don’t get a free pass any longer, including some of your most favorite things.

In light of the “Me Too” movement and canceling men who are too aggressive, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson have released a new version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” that puts men and women on equal footing.

The old classic Christmas song is part of Legend’s new Christmas special on Dec. 1 called “Christmas Under The Stars” that will air on BYUtv. Legend said it was time to change the original version because that song wasn’t acceptable anymore. Legend wrote the song with actress Natasha Rothwell from “Insecure.”

Before we discuss the new version, here’s the original version, which was written in 1944. 

Credit/ YouTube

The song, written by Frank Loesser, became a hit after it was featured in the 1949 movie “Neptune’s Daughter.” It was performed by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalbán. It also went on to win an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 22nd Academy Awards. The scene shows actress Williams attempting to leave and Montalbán’s character is trying to persuade her to stay. 

Here’s a portion of the problematic lyrics:

The neighbors might think, (baby, it’s bad out there)/ Say, what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)/ I wish I knew how, your eyes are like starlight now (To break this spell), I’ll take your hat, (your hair looks swell)/ I ought to say no, no, no, (mind if I move in closer?)/ At least I’m gonna say that I tried, (what’s the sense in hurting my pride?)/ I really can’t stay, (baby don’t hold out)/ Ah, but it’s cold outside.

Interestingly enough, this song wasn’t supposed to be in the film at all. The movie would have featured another Loesser song called “(I’d Like to Get You on a) Slow Boat to China.” However, the song was replaced because the studio felt it was inappropriate. They instead included “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” So, even back then they understood what would be seen as offensive. However, they had no issue with singing about a woman that is forced to stay with a man.

Here is the new politically correct/ anti-rape version of the song. 

Credit/ YouTube

Here are some of the lyrics. 

“I really can’t stay (Baby, it’s cold outside)/ I’ve got to go away (But, I can call you a ride)/ This evening has been (I’m so glad that you dropped in)/ So very nice (Time spent with you is paradise)/ My mom will start to worry (I’ll call the car and tell him to hurry)/ My daddy will be pacing the floor (Wait, what are you still livin’ at home for?)/ So, really, I’d better scurry (Your driver, his name is Murray)/ But maybe just a half a drink more (Oh, we’re both adults, so who’s keepin’ score?)/

AND

I ought to say, “No, no, no, sir” (Then you really ought to go, go, go)/ At least I’m gonna say that I tried (Well, Murray, he just pulled up outside)/

AND

I simply should go (Text me when you get home)/ Oh I’m supposed to say no (Mm, I guess that’s respectable)/ This welcome has been (I’ve been lucky that you dropped in)/ So nice and warm (But you better go before it storms).

You get the point. 

The obvious difference between the original and the new version is that the male isn’t insisting that she stays. If she wants to leave, he is helping her do just that, and not forcing her to stay.

Legend tweeted, “New version of #BabyItsColdOutside! A welcome update or ‘PC Culture run amok & destroying everything great in the history of music?’ (🙄). You decide.”

So what does the world think about this new version for the Me Too era?

Credit: Twitter

It’s actually a mixed bag. Some people like it, some don’t.

At least one person has an issue with the new song because of this lyric…

So, we guess Legend is now shaming people who still live at home? Wow.

But if you’re seriously not into the new version, it’s okay, you can still listen to the old one.

Then again, it looks like Legend and Clarkson got rid of the old song for good.
