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.

Peaches

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)

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
