Inadvertent Feminist

I sing about a speech. I'm glad I heard it
It ventured to call me - an inadvertent feminist
As in, someone who is sensitive, and yet far from weak
As in, someone who is strong, not aggressive/ not a beast

I sing about a speech. I'm glad I heard it
The sum and substance of which, I now repeat
It appeals to you, it appeals to me
He For She, He For She

I sing about a speech. I'm glad I heard it
It made me think, it made me feel welcomed, I admit
Father/ Brother/ Lover, we salute you, it says
I will honour you as a woman, You will honour me no less

I sing about a speech. I'm glad I heard it
The sum and substance of which, I now repeat
It appeals to you, it appeals to me
He For She, He For She

So, I stand by her side
Inadvertent Feminist

And I say
Gender is a blessing,
it is Not a prison

So I, Stand by her side
Inadvertent Feminist

Sing it
"Gender is a blessing,
it is Not a prison!"
