written July 12 2008

Reflections from 2020:

Male-dominated spaces are unhealthy for everyone when the rest of us don't get to speak. Male-only spaces can be healthy and therapeutic but not at the expense of everyone else. Male allies are allies behind closed doors, too - on the playground, in the locker room, at the precinct, behind the gaming console, at the pulpit, at the water cooler, around the campfire. Everywhere, every day.

lyrics

Temptation is a trickster
It masquerades as wise
You traded in your sister
To see with clouded eyes

You didn’t want to lose her
And live your life alone
You wanted more to choose her
Than kneel before that throne

It’s time to be a man
‘Fess up and raise your hand
Take a final stand
By popular demand
By popular demand

It’s your own fault you lost your way
You let lust blind your reason
But we still bear the blame today
On us it’s open season

Whenever you cry witch or seer
She tricked me with a spell
Common sense is lost to fear
You threaten us with hell

It’s time to be a man
‘Fess up and raise your hand
Take a final stand
By popular demand
By popular demand

If you were tricked then say so
Admit to your own weakness
You had the power to say no
We’re trading in our meekness

If you could do things over
Would it be all the same?
A solitary rover or
Someone who shares the blame?

It’s time to be a man
‘Fess up and raise your hand
Take a final stand
By popular demand
By popular demand
By popular demand
