from the Blaze:
Students who say ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ is ‘suggestive’ are asked if misogynistic rap should be banned. The hypocrisy is glorious.
Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform visited George Mason University in northern Virginia recently to ask students what they thought of the controversy over the classic holiday song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” — specifically if it’s the right move to ban the tune over lyrics that suggest a man is seducing a woman against her will.
The reactions were mixed. Some woke students were all for banning the song; others believed the dust-up has been overblown.
But the best part of the interview came at the end when Phillips asked students who were ready to toss “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” on the trash heap if they also believed that misogynistic rap songs — as well as country songs and rock songs — should be banned for the same reason.
And oh how the hypocrisy flowed.
What did the students say?
A pair of female students who said “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is “definitely” misogynistic and should be taken “off campus” sang a different tune when Phillips asked them if they would delete rap songs and tunes from other genres that demean women from their playlists.
