Really shows the idiocy of our society today! True, it's a dreary song from a dreary year (should be called "Baby It's Dull Inside" where you'd have ugly blonde furniture and tuneless music), but to ban it is beyond daft!

Idiocy. The desire to not offend victims of rape in the radio audience.

The stations are settling the controversy with polling, which seems sure to marginalize any rape victim’s feelings while providing a political backstop to justify airing the song irregardless of hurt feelings.

Your assessment is all that is overblown after reading your own link.

KOSI in Denver has done an about-face, first banning the song on Monday, then opening up a poll to put the decision to listeners. The results were unequivocal: the vast majority of the 15,000 respondents demanded the song's return, the station said.

"While we are sensitive to those who may be upset by some of the lyrics, the majority of our listeners have expressed their interpretation of the song to be non-offensive," Program Director Jim Lawson said in a statement.

In San Francisco, KOIT is also now reconsidering its decision and may bring the song back, depending on the results of its own poll. Listeners have until Dec. 10 to decide.

This is sarcasm right? I'm not sure given your political leanings that are often out there, so it's a serious question. One can't possibly think that. Next would be to ban all songs where somebody talks about cars for all victims of car violence, or guns for all victims of gun violence, same for knifes/swords, what about "these boots are made for walking" - plenty of people getting kicked in the head with boots. What about people with diabetes who can't eat any sugar in this season, surely you can't talk about anything sweet in your songs or otherwise all the hurt feelings. What about Queen's "sheer heart attack", def marginalizing victims of heart attacks.

No sarcasm.

Your opinion on the subject is even further over the top.

Back here on earth, radio station businesses are trying to make money by airing songs people want to hear so that they can sell advertising.

War it is then.

Let’s go ahead and actually have that over-publicized fucking war on conspicuous year-end debt and self-defeating consumption.

Fuck your cheap Walmart and Amazon Republican Jesus Christ. Hahaha!

There are so many songs, books, movies, tv shows and every other media that are ready to be frozen out.

I personally find Chumbawamba's Tubthumping song offensive, because I got knocked down once.

Some liberal professor claims God didn't get consent from mary. When someone pointed out that same Angel informed Mary and she consented-theliberal professor claims that the power dynamic was too much and hence consent is not consent-LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

So now according to a liberlas if a woman consents to a man and ahs sex and if said man is rich-then it is not consent because the power dynamic is too big.

This country is doomed. perhaps this is how Rome fell as the crazy leftoids too over and lived with their head in the clouds.

If you fight this issue based on projected leftoid opinion, then the left will resist based on tribal lines. Sure fail because leftoids and rightoids refuse to agree on anything, on tribal lines. If you fight this issue based on overlaying current social constructs on historical realities it might go better. Not as fun admittedly, but more productive.

Here's a song I enjoy (maybe should be posting to 'what are you listening to tonight' instead of here) that would not survive the 'it's cold outside' test. Rather not have it banned.
