Times have changed but the language remains.
She's conservative is mild for plain and boring Jane
Independent bandages forever single and lonely
While standards are considered has bin fairytales.
Fidelity and honesty is considered greasy
And to speak one's mind is labelled bossy.
To be married and with child is the goal
And anything else is barren and old.
To sift through choices of a mate
A woman is branded as difficult to sate.
To decide not to settle for the vanilla man
A lady is crucified and the tramp
But a guy is medalled a "man".
Men are taught that less is more
And women are expected to be demure.
To go for the degree is toasted with weird and geeky.
This new world is so tricky.
