This year the classic Christmas song about a lady staying overnight in a gentlemen’s house got too politically correct. Some people claimed that the lyrics are ‘rapey’ and insinuate that her drink has been spiked.
What people are failing to realize is that ALL Christmas songs have bad messages and shouldn’t be analysed so deeply.
Here are some examples,
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
Santa knew that Rudolph was being bullied but didn’t do anything about it.
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Santa Claus is coming to town
‘He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake’
The 12 days of Christmas
Greed. Who has a boyfriend that buys them 12 gifts for each day before Christmas? Send him my way!
Let’s just let you decide if she’s REALLY talking about a chimney or not…
So,as you can see all Christmas songs have negative meanings if you dig into them deeper. Besides, they were written in a different era when the word ‘gay’ just meant happy.
So,give us a break and just play the damn songs. It’s Christmas for heavens sake.
