"But my point is...what about most of the people out there in the world listening to this song in 2018 who DIDN'T read the analysis? On a casual listen, I think it it's more likely that someone, without benefit of context set out by articles like this, would say that one person is trying to pressure another into doing something he/she doesn't want to do."

On this point, I completely agree with you. But I think that's a huge problem with the world today -- people over-reacting emotionally to something without exercising their intelligence to think it through and figure out if there's really anything for them to be upset about.

Like the "gypsy" controversy. But I'm certainly not going to get into that...
