#MeToo zabranio božićnu pjesmu Deana Martina ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ jer u njoj žena želi otići, a muškarac joj ne da

Pjesma je originalno snimljena 1959. godine.

Nakon što je veliki broj američkih radio stanica odbilo emitirati “Baby It’s Cold Outside” zbog prijetnji bojkotom različitih #MeToo platformi, oglasila se i kćer preminule američke ikone Deana Martina. “Moj se otac okreće u grobu zbog ovoga”, poručila je.

Već nekoliko tjedana u SAD-u traje neka vrst nacionalne debate oko toga puštati ili ne Martinov božićni hit “Baby It’s Cold Outside”. Protivnici pjesme, feministice i različiti aktivisti i aktivistkinje uključeni u pokret #MeToo opetovano nazivaju radijske stanice koje još imaju prakse da puštaju pjesmu i traže od odgovornih da s istom prestanu. Navode kako je riječ o pjesmi u kojoj žena namjerava otići iz muškarčeve kuće, a ovaj joj to ne dozvoljava.

Pjesmu je prva prestala puštati radijska stanica iz Clevelanda, Star102FM, a njen primjer slijedile su brojne radijske stanice usprkos negodovanju brojnih slušatelja.

U nastavku teksta prilažemo stihove sporne pjesme i, naravno, Dean Martina.

I really can’t stay (but baby, it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to go away (but baby, it’s cold outside)

This evening has been (been hoping that you’d drop in)
So very nice (i’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice)

My mother will start to worry (beautiful what’s your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (listen to the fireplace roar)

So really I’d better scurry (beautiful please don’t hurry)
But maybe just a half a drink more (put some records on while I pour)

The neighbors might think (baby, it’s bad out there)
Say what’s in this drink? (no cabs to be had out there)

I wish I knew how (your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (i’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell)

I ought to say, no, no, no sir (mind if I move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (what’s the sense in hurtin’ my pride?)

I really can’t stay (oh baby don’t hold out)
But baby, it’s cold outside

I simply must go (but baby, it’s cold outside)
The answer is no (but baby, it’s cold outside)

Your welcome has been(how lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (look out the window at this dawn)

My sister will be suspicious (gosh your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door (waves upon the tropical shore)

My maiden aunts mind is vicious (gosh your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (never such a blizzard before)

I’ve gotta get home(but baby, you’d freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat(it’s up to your knees out there)

You’ve really been grand (i thrill when you touch my hand)
But don’t you see? (how can you do this thing to me?)

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (if you got pnuemonia and died)

I really can’t stay (get over that old out)
Baby, it’s cold
Baby, it’s cold outside
