Jazz Age

During the JAZZ AGE (the period from 1918-1929), many of the songs included the acceptance of homosexuality. One of these had the title "Masculine Women, Feminine Men."
The lyrics are really creative:

Masculine women, Feminine men

Which is the rooster, which is the hen?

It's hard to tell 'em apart today! And, say!

Sister is busy learning to shave,

Brother just loves his permanent wave,

It's hard to tell 'em apart today! Hey, hey!

Girls were girls and boys were boys when I was a tot,

Now we don't know who is who, or even what's what!

Knickers and trousers, baggy and wide,

Nobody knows who's walking inside,

Those masculine women and feminine men!
