There are some modern day Grinches (and not the Dr Suess Grinch) who once again are trying to take away the spirit of Christmas and the holidays. First we were told to stop saying “Merry Christmas” because it was insensitive to non Christians and then we were told to stop saying “Happy Holidays” because it was insensitive to Christians. Well now this year the big debate is around songs like “Baby it’s Cold Outside” or “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” which apparently are trigger songs for rape and bullying.
I agree that both of these things are terrible but unfortunately a one-sided viewpoint has gotten people arguing up a shitstorm about whether the songs mean what has been interpreted. I can understand not wanting to listen to particular songs because you have a personal sensitivity to it or wanting to discuss rationally why the song may create issues for you. But I cringe on all sides when the start off point is “I am offended, so ban this” or “I am offended, so you have to start/stop doing something”
So give it up to the Grinch who instead of stealing Christmas from the Whos down in Whoville, has created a whole list of potentially offensive songs that he will tweet on twitter in hopes we will do the rest.
I hope you have a Merry ChrismaKwanzikah.
Welcome back! I’ve missed your biting social commentary!
Thanks. With all the moms out there I just feel like anything I would say someone else has said it so haven’t been as inspired to draw much. But I will try to do better than every four months. Hahah
I’ve banned “Let It Snow” since I hate shoveling.
Good one. Bad for my back too
Hey dude! Long time no hear!
I find this crap utter bullshit. I know I would definitely get into some serious maelstroms if I actually confronted noobs on FB about this, so I have a tendency to keep my comments about to just the pages I follow.
In short, culture history is lost on SJW’s.
Btw, I’m back on Blogger
Hey. As I always say both sides need to chill a bit. Thanks for stopping by
Actually, instead of a White Christmas, we get a Diversity Christmas. Every time it snows, they melt it all with dirt. Eventually, the entire city becomes various shades of brown.
Diversity Christmas is a good thing. Peeling away everything christmas is not
I’m with the Grinch on banning snow!
