Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: 'Hostile to the opposite sex' songs
Subject: RE: BS: Best 'Hostile to the opposite sex' song
Joe -- I'm afraid I agree with you on that. I mean, a little humor on the subject goes a long way, but if women are going to get all insulted because men sing songs that get in their digs at women, then we shouldn't turn around and sing songs or make jokes, etc., that are hateful to me. I mean a little good-natured jibing, but ... sometimes I get these e-mails with "jokes" in them that are directed toward men and I just have to wonder if this is liberation -- to do unto them as we were done to and demeaned by? Doesn't make sense to me ... I mean, some time back, maybe the balance needed to be restored, but enuf's enuf.

'Scuse me. My soapbox is creaking.
