SAN ANTONIO - A Texas State University lecturer in the Department of Theatre and Dance is getting attention all across the country for a song she wrote and sang on a Facebook post.

Lynzy Lab posted the song Oct. 7, and since then, it has more than 5 million views.

The song, titled "A Scary Time (for Boys)" is about issues every woman faces today. 

Lab's song got the attention of many media outlets around the world, and she was invited to sing the song on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

She performed Thursday night, surrounded by women of all ages on the stage.

Lab recently told ABC News she wrote the song as a response to comments President Donald Trump made last week. He said, "It is a scary time for young men in America."

"I was angry to hear the president describe these times as 'scary for men' with a complete disregard of the struggles we, as women, face on a daily basis," Lab told ABC News.
