Groucho Marxist (inactive) feminist perspective on folk songs (123* d) RE: feminist perspective on folk songs 03 Sep 00


What you said was: "Told ye we were all rotten pigs. Oink oink"

Based on that, I agree with Deborah. You just come off like a silly juvenile.


Yes, folk music is a reflection of the culture from which it came. "Michael Row the Boat Ashore" is a song that dates back to slavery time. Male and female equality was a long way off. It's actually a beautiful song, though.
