(Newser) – When addressing the allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last Tuesday, President Trump had this to say: "It is a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something you're not guilty of." Fast forward one week, and those words have found a second life in a viral ukulele song. Lynzy Lab, a performance artist living in San Marcos, Texas, posted her roughly 2.5-minute video to YouTube on Sunday, and it has racked up 500,000 YouTube views since—plus another 31 million on Facebook.

  • In her song, she lists things women can't safely or freely do lest they end up in scary situations. A sampling: "I can't walk to my car late at night while on the phone. I can't open up my windows when I'm home alone. I can't go to a bar without a chaperone. I can't wear a miniskirt if it's the only one I own."
  • Then comes the counterpart, in lines like: "It sure is a scary time for dudes, can't text a girl repeatedly asking for nudes. Can't make a girl have a sex when she's not in the mood, and what gives her the right to give you attitude." She ends with a call for women to "make some noise" and vote on Nov. 6.
