Samantha Peterson - “Dead Men Can’t Catcall” (CUPSI 2014)

"Bodies like mine can only be talked about in metaphor. My stomach could be the curve of a sand dune. My calves a flexing ocean."

Our first video from CUPSI Finals Stage! The incredible Samantha Peterson,  from Lewis and Clark College, performing as part of the Best of the Rest

I AM NOT A FUCKING ORCHARD

I’m not a FUCKING orchard

We don’t know if Elliot Rodger was mentally ill. We don’t know if he was a “madman.” We do know that he was desperately lonely and unhappy, and that the Men’s Rights Movement convinced him that his loneliness and unhappiness was intentionally caused by women.
Because this is what the Men’s Rights Movement does: it spreads misogyny, it spreads violence, and most of all it spreads a sense of entitlement towards women’s bodies.
Pretending that this is the a rare act perpetrated by a “crazy” person is disingenuous and also does nothing to address the threat of violence that women face every day. We can’t just write this one off – we need to talk about all of the fucked up parts of our culture, especially the movements that teach men that they have the right to dominate and intimidate and violate women, that lead to this, and we need to change things. Because if we don’t, I guarantee that this will happen again. And again. And again.

I once went to a concert with a friend (I don’t remember the band, she dragged me along) when I was 16. They were starting a wall of death and this guy who was flirting with me decides it would be funny to pull my top down, exposing my breasts, then throw me in the middle of this wall of death right as it’s about to meet. When I stumble in the middle and hit the wall someone screamed “STOP! EXPOSED GIRL!” and I thought they were all going to oggle at me. Instead, one guy quickly helped me cover up, three more helped me to my feet, and another asked who did that. When I pointed out the guy, two of them looked at him, me, each other, then nodded and punched the guy in the face before forcing him into the wall that was about to form again.
Metal men are gentlemenly as shit.

This fucking this^^^ 

I’ve always loved this.

I went to my first concert a few months ago and there were these really tall men with black vest tops and tattoos and piercings surrounding us screaming loudly when the music started playing, but then we realised this kid in the crowd had lost his mum so they tried to comfort him and when he started crying they asked him his name and he shakily sobbed “Eliot” at which point they lifted him in the air onto the shoulder’s and shouted at the top of their lungs “ELIOT’S MUM, ELIOT IS LOOKING FOR YOU. EXCUSE ME HAS ANYONE SEEN ELIOT’S MUM!!!” at which point Eliot started giggling between sobs until he finally found his mum while in the air.

Seriously, I have felt safer in groups of death metal dudes than in the group of the preppiest preps that ever prepped.

Metal guys are one big family. Simple as that.

I remember seeing this for the first time like a year ago and not once have I seen it and not reblogged it because this is just amazing.

I’d like to correct this:
“God, send us someone to cure AIDS, cancer, etc., etc.”
“I did, but you gave them a substandard education because they lived in an area with poor funding due to low property taxes.  
I did, but you let them die because they couldn’t afford healthcare.  
I did, but due to racism you stomped out their potential and didn’t give them the same opportunities.  
I did, but you make a college education too unaffordable while giving the big bankers passes.
I did, but you saw a homeless youth before you saw a kid with potential.  
I did, but you kicked the downtrodden while they were already shoulder deep in sinking sand.”

I did, but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term—making her a single mother with limited income who had to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.

Hope everyone enjoys these as much as I do - they took long enough to make. But they’re finally finished - hey, let’s celebrate with some sleep! Good evening, all. :)

I’m so tired of people asking me, "Where are your hearing aids?" and “Why won’t you wear your hearing aids?” Ok….let me get one thing straight. If someone refuses to wear a t-shirt, no one says "Where is that shirt of yours?" Now a lot of you may say… "Oh that’s…

This shit always pumps me up.
Whenever I have a chance to talk to kids about my piercings and tattoos and lifestyle, and they have that look of wonder and admiration, I just want to die inside.
There is nothing cuter than letting a curious little girl loop her finger through my stretched lobe to show her that it doesn’t hurt.
And there’s nothing more reassuring than having a group of kids tell me they think my jewelry looks pretty on my face.
I think it’s so important for people of an “alternative” style or lifestyle to connect like this with the up and coming generations. We have a chance to alter their perceptions. Even if it’s not so visible as spiked studs on a jacket or 3/4” holes through your earlobes, the way we present ourselves does not have to directly correlate with whether or not we are bad or good people.
It’s one of the few things left that is remarkably beautiful about society— kids, no matter their upbringing, are curious and open-minded.
