The song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has certainly had its fair share of controversy in recent years. In 2018, the infamous Christmas classic made headlines when numerous radio stations moved to scrap the song after its lyrics were deemed controversial.

On its face, “Rudolph” sounds like a nice, elegant Christmas tune that your kids will enjoy. But a further investigation into the song’s lyrics reveals just how problematic this old-time classic truly is.
Take, for instance, lines like “all of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names” and “they never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games,” which blatantly glorify bullying of those who are different. What’s more, the other reindeer and Santa decide that Rudolph has some semblance of worth only after they use him as a flashlight to guide them through the wave of fog disrupting their Christmas Eve deliveries. . .
