Thread Name: Is 'Trad music' sexist?
Subject: RE: Is 'Trad music' sexist?
Traditional music reflected the attitudes and morality of the time they were sung. They were not sexist or racist.
Looking backwards with our modern morality does not alter that but it seems people today feel obliged to apologise for what was perfectly normal and legal several centuries ago.
If you feel uncomfortable singing a song then don't sing it.
