Long before I understood concepts like consent or feminism, I understood creepy, and the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” qualified. It’s meant to be a fun, flirty little song, but listen to the lyrics and it’s wrong. “No means no” is clear and classic, and when a guy is that insistent about ignoring boundaries, it’s a sign to get the hell out of there, cold outside or not.
It has been so long since I’ve produced original content at this blog that you could certainly be forgiven for not realizing I was still here. A goodbye may seem somewhat redundant, but I’m the kind of person who likes closure.
