Banned song just cute, flirty

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
