    This is the song I was thinking of but could not recall who wrote and sang it. Think my spouse has a Christine Lavin tape with this song on it, that I saw in her collection years ago but never really looked at too closely. For some reason I was thinking it was Cris Williamson, who (I think) is a pretty similar, second wave feminist folksinger. Anyway, about the song itself. Not really sure what to make of it. Is she simply mocking sensitive new age men, as seems to be the case just taking the lyrics at face value? Or is there some deeper meaning or intent, perhaps to show that she really supports such men despite the apparent mockery of them? I guess this all bothered me a lot more before I came out as a transgender woman, back when I felt stuck having to pretend to be the sort of man Lavin describes in the song. There was a part of me that kind of wanted to say to her (again, taking the song lyrics at face value) something like "OK, what the hell do you WANT men to do? Because i am pretty sure you do not want us to be macho cavemen, right? But it kinda seems like you are mocking us for being too much the opposite of that." Anyway, glad I was able to find the song here, and now I know that it is Christine Lavin and not Cris Williamson!
