  • Even if the guy was horny, he was still looking out for her

    In the song, there was a blizzard and it was apparently up to her knees. Even if that was an exaggeration, it would most logically be that a car wouldn't be able to operate in that kind of weather. Even if it did, it's a blizzard, where visibility is extremely low

    If she'd had left, she'd have probably died in that blizzard, or had to keep the air running in her car all night to prevent freezing to death

    Also in the song, every reason she gave had nothing to do with HER wanting to go. She mentions her family members as reasons to leave every time. That tells us that she wants to stay, but her family would worry about her

    She was forced to stay regardless

    • Yeah, but even if he is apparently looking out for her safety he is still aggressively going after her (the lyrics about what is in the drink indicate he is trying to weaken her reluctance through intoxication). She may indeed be attracted to him, but a woman's reasons for saying no are irrelevant (even if they are what we would consider bad reasons such as the man's race, economic status, or the feelings of her parents), all that matters is that she said no.

    • A common thing in old timey media is to ask what's in the drink. I've seen it in many old TV shows. Obviously it has a different connotation in the modern world, but back then it was a joke statement to blame the drink

      And like I said, she couldn't leave regardless and expressed no desire to leave

      You came in already on the rape side, so me trying to explain to you is pointless. Look it up if you haven't already

  • Nah... it's about a persistent dude and a powerful willed woman - she doesn't give into him and he tries... because he's extra horny.

    • No, it is the one Waffles731 linked to except the roles have been switched in that version (female parts are sung by a man and male parts by a woman).

    • I was joking haha :p

  • According to modern standards, yes. The girl is like she has to go home and obviously she isn't up for sex. So no means no, right? And in the video he has his hands all over her. It's a bit disturbing.
