POLL: Is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" A Date Rape Song?

After a Cleveland radio station decided to drop the song "Baby, It's Cold Outside" more radio stations across the country have followed suit. 

In this #MeToo era there are those that think the lyrics are too suggestive, but a feminist defends the lyrics saying the woman in the song is expressing her sexuality in a way that was appropriate for the era. 

Listeners tend to take their Christmas music serious as it reminds them of holidays gone by, and this song is an all time favorite that may have ran its course. 

The song writer's daughter is responding, describing it as a song “my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties”, when speaking to NBC news.

Loesser's daughter, 74, (in video below) says she understands the reaction but advised critics to remember "it was written in 1944," adding "I think my father would be furious [at it being banned from the radio].

Is it a date rape song? Do you think that the song should be taken off the air?
