I don't hate protest songs; I love protest songs. Even the "bad" protest songs I shared I enjoy listening too, I just kind of cringe a bit at parts of them. But since you're kvetching, here's a post with only good protest songs. *harumph* I hope you're happy.

"The Prison Trilogy" by Joan Baez


"Where Have All the Flowers Gone" by Pete Seeger as covered by Johnny Rivers:


"Deportee" by Woody Guthrie as covered by the Highwaymen:


"In The Ghetto" by Elvis Presley (written by Mac Davis)

I'm not sure if this is a protest song, exactly, but I really like it.

(Presumably, the only way to stop a bad guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law is a good guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law, and thus transgender-friendly privacy law rights need to be enshrined in the Constitution as well)
