I Didn’t Realize How Wrong ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Was Until I Heard This Version

The original 1944 version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is a super-pleasant holiday tune ... that is, until you hear the lyrics for the first time. I'd call the fellow part of the duet a little more than ungentlemanly, more than pushy — well, a blogger put her own spin on it. It's short. It's to the point. And it's how the original version should have ended.

Oh, back already?


This brand-new, feminist-approved version is pretty amazing.

11 seconds in and he already gets it.

Respect women and their choices — whether it's the choice to stay with her square-jawed companion for the evening, perhaps to discuss which classic movie star inspired his mustache or whatever you two may have in mind — or whether it's to go home.

The original version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" was made popular in a movie called "Neptune's Daughter":

...and if the lyrics didn't drive the point home in this clip, Ricardo Montalbán and his cartoon wolf impression will do:

Esther Williams just wants to leave, dude.

Taking away someone else's clothes so they will stay in your home (and then maybe make out with you) is a pretty childish way to flirt. And, of course, ignoring her decision because (you think) yours is more important is just Sexism 101.

Always the gentleman, this one.

So ... this grabbing he's doing...

He grabs her that way a lot. And is that OK?

Not OK on Christmas or any time of year, dudes.

The original song is so darn catchy, which is why it's still popular 70+ years later. But consent is a gift. Gifts are given, not taken.

Pass on the enlightenment, if you'd like. No pressure — and a Happy Festive Holiday Month to you all!

Usually the greatest fear after a wild night of partying isn't what you said that you might regret, but how you'll look in your friends' tagged photos. Although you left the house looking like a 10, those awkward group selfies make you feel more like a 5, prompting you to wonder, "Why do I look different in pictures?"

It's a weird phenomenon that, thanks to selfies, is making people question their own mirrors. Are pictures the "real" you or is it your reflection? Have mirrors been lying to us this whole time??

The answer to that is a bit tricky. The good news is that there's a big chance that Quasimodo-looking creature that stares back at you in your selfies isn't an accurate depiction of the real you. But your mirror isn't completely truthful either.

Below, a scientific breakdown that might explain those embarrassing tagged photos of you:
