With Your Hands Down My Pants By Transitive Property
Since the Supreme Court is weighing DOMA and everyone is talking about gay marriage and LGBT issues, it seems like a good time to post Propagandhi’s lesson in how to make homophobes uncomfortable – otherwise known as the title track from their 1996 sophomore album Less Talk, More Rock.
Now, everyone’s favorite (or at least they should be!) secular market anarchist punk rawk band have long been “vocal” advocates for LGBT equality. It might not seem as bold of a stance today, but back in ’96 when I got their shirt that looks exactly like the image in this post… different story. And for Propagandhi, playing this song in front of skinheads in the mid 1990’s must have been interesting to say the least.
Here are the lyrics. I’ve always found them highly amusing:
I’d like to actively encourage the toughest man to dance as hard as he can to this
And bring your stupidest friends along
We wrote this song cuz it’s fucking boring
To keep spelling out the words that you keep ignoring
And your macho shit won’t faze me now
It just makes us laugh, got your cash, court jester take a bow
Cuz did you know that when I was nine
I tried to fuck a friend of mine?
He was eight then I turned ten
Fourteen years later it happened again with another friend
This time with me on the receiving end
So if you dance to this you drink to me and my sexuality
With your hands down my pants by transitive property
Check out the tune:
