"The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended", Anderson wrote.

However the station has faced a backlash against their decision with 94 percent of listeners saying they should keep playing the song.

More than 5,000 people have voted since the station launched the poll on their Facebook page on 29 November.

KOSI chose to pull the song from its catalog after receiving some calls of concern but then received a lot of feedback from those who consider the song a classic and not offensive in relation to other modern songs. He would like her to stay and she wants to go home.

"You have that song all wrong". It is a conversation that probably happens a lot.

"Ya know, I hear the argument and I get it, but I really really LOVE that song".

"There are so many wonderful songs that celebrate the holiday season", she said.

"I do not believe it's about rape - it's a playful banter from a time when a woman would have been concerned people would think badly of her for staying, even if she wanted to".

That comes as the duet, written back in 1944, faces renewed scrutiny over what some say are inappropriate lyrics in the wake of the #MeToo movement. "If we start to analyze all songs, you'll be left playing maybe 3, if that", yet another agreed.

Mrs Kirkman added that people should instead be outraged over the double standards for women than men but that people should still enjoy the song.

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" has been considered a holiday classic ever since it won the Academy Award for best original song in the film "Neptune's Daughter".

And two years ago, Minnesota couple Lydia Liza and Josiah Lemanski rewrote the lyrics to include lines about consent, such as a response to the woman's line "I ought to say no, no, no" with the man saying: "You reserve the right to say no".

WDOK Christmas 102.1 said the lyrics were predatory as a man tries to stop a woman from leaving a party despite her repeated protestations.
