How to Freak Out A Millennial Girl...

Just show them this song.

I'm serious.  They run around like chickens with their heads cut off shrieking: "Gross! Disgusting! OMG! I can't even!  I need a safe a space!  Didn't her mother teach her anything!"

That last is an actual and precise quote and gives me just the slightest bit of hope for the future.



In their defense, the stuff Millennial girls are saying, "no" to would have been grounds for a back of the police station beating when this song was recorded.

1955: Christianity was strong and near universal in the US. There was no abortion on demand and poor choices for birth control. When men dressed in women's clothes in British comedy it was considered silly and funny and not alternate gender agitprop. In this light opera about the American heartland, the audience of the time would, with the exception of the jaded few, consider this the lament of a girl who couldn't resist going to first base with a boy. The audience would assume for the most part that second base was not an option for this character which is what makes it charming. The shy "bad" girl of the American heartland can't stop kissing boys but still knows she must "avoid the pit". Cute. Not surprising though that it is met with horror in a far more depraved time.

wait until you show the girls "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers".

even better, wait til the middle of the movie when it is stated explicitly that "Seven Brides" is modeled after the Sabine women ...
