Peaches, Please Impeach My Bush!

PeachesJim Farber from NY Daily News reviews Peaches, "Leveling her shocks"

The result sounds like the hottest, dirtiest, most gloriously tacky hard rock outbursts of the '70s: like Kiss meets Blondie in the wood-paneled rumpus room of your youth. If the sound recalls both the glory, and the cliches, of classic rock, Peaches upends expectations by delivering her gender-bending lyrics with a conviction that transcends the typical rock 'n' roll tease.


Take "Two Guys (For Every Girl)." Here Peaches turns the old Beach Boys slogan "Two girls for every boy" inside out - with lyrics like "Just one thing I can't compromise/I want to see you work it, guy on guy/I want to see you boys get down with each other/I want to see you do your little nasty brother."

Oh, that sounds awesome!

Yet Peaches maintains that what she has to say about sex and power shouldn't threaten anybody. And instead of seeing herself as a voice for sexual outsiders, she says her real mission is to help those with the most perceived power in society: straight men.

Can You Hear Peaches?

"They're the only ones in society who haven't had a liberation movement," Peaches explains. "Women had one. Gay men and lesbians had one. But when straight males had what they thought was a sexual revolution in the '70s, it was just so they could [have sex with] more women.

"I want to tell them something really revolutionary," she says. "It's okay to be vulnerable."

WOW. That's extraordinarily interesting. I was recently remarking that with all the new ways of living and relating the lib movements have created, no one's yet tackled straight men.

Peaches Lets The Crowd Have It

Many assume that you need not change the stream, that it is in fact, fucking impossible. But others, like myself believe dualistic approaches toward the minority and the main are the only way for lasting change. WOOT Peaches!

Peaches Rocks

Guests on this record include Joan Jett and Josh Homme and Feist. "She's dirtier than most gansta rappers. She's a lip sync favorite among drag queens...She writes dance music that rockers will listen to and rock that disco queens will dance to" - Paper. (Amazon, Peaches)

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
