Kristofer Ahlström: There is no end to the racist and sexist jullåtarna

When Josiah Lemanski and Lydia Liza singing the flirty mood turned against the asexual dialogue. On her ”ought to say no, no, no, no” he replies ”You deserve the right to say no”. Which is good and fine and metoo-adapted, but then miss the song, the original feminist message, which is all about how a woman in a patriarchal society must pretend to be reluctant in order to not be branded as promiscuous.

Should kikarsiktet directed against the provocative christmas songs are, of course, a plethora of outdated examples to choose instead. Like, say, that africans are too ignorant to believe it's christmas ”Do they know it's Christmas”. Or is it sexist to guys to get guns while girls play with dolls in the ”It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas”. Or that it is in ”The Christmas song”, sung about the eskimos though the correct term is inuit or yupik. Or take the ”Santa baby”, where the main character wishes the ownership to a platinumgruva – to say the least short of historic, considering the british platinakolonialism that devastated many south african lives and where striking miners have been massacred as late as 2012.

the Problem with the traditional songs is that they stick to a traditional approach that does not always age so with dignity. Or was stupid from the outset.
