Every year more and more people realise just how creepy 'Baby It's Cold Outside' really is.
We've all heard the Christmas song so many times that we mightn't have ever considered its subtext. If you haven't, please take a moment to think about the lyrics.
Here are a few tweets summing up just how problematic it is...
"Baby, It's Cold Outside" - Creepy guy with boundary issues harasses his date, who's trying to get away as nicely as possible.

As I got older,
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" got less creepy and "Baby it's Cold Outside" got more creepy

I'm not sure how "Baby It's Cold Outside" continues to be on the holiday play list. It's as annoying as it is pervy.

"Baby it's cold outside" would be extremely unsettling if there wasn't jolly music in the background. Like no is no dude.

I never realized just how messed up "Baby it's Cold Outside" is. I mean, "what's in this drink?" is an actual lyric!

How did "Baby It's Cold Outside" become a Christmas standard? It's such a creepy song, and doesn't mention Christmas at all.

Nobody is more pissed about climate change than the predator who sings the male part in “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
