Listening While Feminist: In Defense of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”

I’ve noticed over the last several years that some feminists have a strong dislike for the Frank Loesser song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Hattie wrote about one interpretation of the song last week , but with all due respect to my fellow Persephonine, I must heartily disagree with her view of it.

I’ve heard the take on “Baby” as “rapey” a couple of times over the years and the concern about the song usually centers in on one line: “Say, what’s in this drink,” which many contemporary listeners assume is a reference to a date rape drug. But narrowing in on this particular line divorces it from its own internal context, and having only passing familiarity with the song divorces it from its cultural context. You can (and should) read the lyrics of the song in their entirety here .

If we look at the text of the song, the woman gives plenty of indication that she wants to stay the night. At the time period the song was written (1936), “good girls,” especially young, unmarried girls, did not spend the night at a man’s house unsupervised. The tension in the song comes from her own desire to stay and society’s expectations that she’ll go.

For everyone celebrating Saint Patrick's day

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian." - Henry Ford

Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges; When the Republic is at its most corrupt the laws are most numerous. - Publius Cornelius Tacitus

Melissa Davis posted this on our Facebook Page today:

I wanted to share a photo of our boat. We lived in the wonderful town of Bailey for over 15 years and 6 months ago we sold everything to go sailing. We bought the boat in Annapolis, MD and sailed her down to FL to do a little work on her. We finally added the name today and will be back in the water tomorrow. We plan to travel for awhile with our home port of Bailey CO displayed proudly!


And of course that got me to thinking of one of my favorite Jimmy Buffett songs, "A Pirate Looks at Forty."

"Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you switch from sails to steam
And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen
Most of them dream, most of them dream"

Calm waters and smooth journey Melissa!
