Why is it we call a male assertive and a female pushy? Why is a guy tough and a girl a bitch? What would Walt Whitman say about that?
A Song of Myself is the 7th episode of Season 3 on FOX teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


School's in, and David's in for it when his summer fling becomes a transfer student - and Donna's buddy. Meanwhile, Andrea has a tough adjustment to the Blaze's new faculty advisor; Brenda and Steve act as "senior buddies" to new freshmen.
