Time to tear apart this video right here...
We're constantly inundated (flooded or overwhelmed) by Christmas songs... Overly sappy ones at that. I'm not a huge fan of Christmas music, so I listen to the local rock station. Why not just not listen to it if you don't like it?
At 0:35, she suggests that she might unintentionally find herself singing along to these songs we're about to hear about... Plank in eye.
1:15-1:35; So now we're taking life lessons from comedy movies? While we're on the topic, does that mean that you believe that all any guys ever think about is girls? There's food and cars in there too...
As for the song, it's one person singing, not all of the women in the world. The singer expresses that she wants *her* man, who do you think is listening to that weak argument?
---Please don't listen to Justin Bieber, we're not all that sappy.
------"Bordering on stalker territory"? From the clip you played, (and I'll be damned if I listen to that all the way through) that sounded like a legitimate Christmas/love song, not stalker-y.
---------For your list of things you might want for Christmas. Are we assuming that the desired person in the song isn't friends/family? Most people get days off for relaxation, and besides, would you listen to a song about watching football and drinking beer *for Christmas*? Most people have a home-made feast for Christmas or corresponding religious time of significance. Buffy's scythe, now we're getting creepy, I see what you mean... But seriously, that's the weakest argument ever. I hope you've got more up your sleeve for the next 4, because that was disappointing. Give me a challenge - just an idea.
So... Kid sees mommy 'getting it on' with Santa, who would be his father, because there is in fact, no Santa. All the kid has to do is ask and his mommy would probably tell him. I don't think any psychological counseling will be needed.
Ok, really? So would you rather the boys got the dolls instead of cowboy boots and guns? I don't see how it's harmful. Barney and Ben want boots and guns, there we go. It doesn't say anywhere that they want dolls, if it did, then we'd be in a whole new discussion. To emphasize; "A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots, is the *WISH* of Barney and Ben. Dolls that talk and go for a walk, is the *HOPE* of Janice and Jen.". The words "wish" and "hope" suggest that the children want these items, and that cannot and should not be perceived as offensive.
I never thought I'd be defending this song. Again, this comes down to what the writer or singer thought, not all women. I think you'll find that fewer people than you seem to assume base their lives on 60-year-old Christmas songs.
The most sexist holiday song! Haha! I can feel the evil already. Baby it's cold outside! So yeah, the song is about a guy trying to convince a girl to stay wherever they are. The thing is, all of the re-hashing of the song has ruined the vocal cues. It was a flirtatious song originally. The original implies that she doesn't want to leave and he doesn't want her to.
Now about your repugnant spiel of ignorance. 6:40~; Like I said above, it's flirtatious. What he wants is to spend the evening in good company, pervert. Wolf and mouse? More like cat and mouse, she was playing right along in the song. When she says "What's in this drink?", it could very well be a way of saying that she shouldn't feel the way she does and blaming it on the drink. Haven't you ever flirted with a guy or girl and said no and quite obviously meant yes? So now we get around to the fun part. The way men pressure women to do things, because repeating one line is really going to make someone have second thoughts about something they're wholly decided on. Now, problematic *male* behavior? Who's the sexist asshole now? Are you implying that women never pressure men into doing things that the men don't want to do? I'm here to tell you that you're wrong. Women have the same capacity to be pressuring as men do. Don't be sexist.
