Re: “Chilly or not? Revisiting Baby, It’s Cold Outside in a new era” (You, Dec. 6)
The brouhaha over the lyrics of Baby, It’s Cold Outside is ridiculous. As the son of its author has said, his father wrote this duet for him and his wife to perform at parties. It is a cute, flirty song involving two adults who are clearly attracted to each other and don’t want the evening to end. That’s it. I do not take anything regarding sexual misconduct lightly, but to peg this holiday classic as a rape anthem is just wrong and unwarranted. Cynthia Jarjour, St-Lambert
Thank goodness cannabis is legal in Canada. Otherwise "Puff the Magic Dragon", a children's favourite, would be banned. Oh, Legault might ban it as it is a song popular with children, to those under 21.

Cynthia you are completely right! What has happened to society is a complete turnaround from where people were afraid to speak up, where men had the advantage, from a time where multiculturalism didn't exist. Things are starting to turn around, women are getting the respect they deserve (most of the time), we are more understanding of different cultures. The problem is that the latest generation seem to be offended by everything, and many people and companies bend under their pressure. It's time that stopped, parents of millennials stop being their friend and BE A PARENT.It is not up to everyone else to change, grow up because you wont always get your way.
