Think about the BS going down right now
Personally, I’m thinking ‘bout the difference between men and women in the world
Though if I keep talking, Imma be told I’m “not nice enough” and I need to “smile more”
And when I’m older, I should worry about finding a husband
I hope I don’t forget, ‘cuz apparently, my memory cannot be trusted
And Eve was created for Adam
Though, probably because Adam didn’t know who to be without Eve,
I’m calling BS.
BS on all the men whose wants come before women’s needs
I know you don’t know what it’s like to be me
To be told not to sit like a boy
As if being simply comfortable had a sex
To always act ladylike
Never touch the codex
And don’t get me started on simply having emotions
Men really aren’t allowed to show any, women are stereotyped to have too many
So when Serena Williams argues over cheating she didn’t do
She’s “having a meltdown, acting the clown, making herself to be the fool”
But when Brett Kavanaugh damn near cries in the courtroom,
He’s being “strong, powerful, and everybody’s moved”
Now doesn’t that just sound nice?
I might need new contacts, think I’m seeing double standards
Why is everyone okay when it’s the women getting slandered?
They seem to forget that women aren’t meant to “compliment” men
Telling us that we were “treated the same”
But people still being used, hidin’ out backstage
And the pattern continued, around and around
Now those below don’t look up
And those above don’t look down
And it’s been too damn long, so I’m calling B.S.
