HAND PIES LYRICS:

bodies that come, bodies that gush
when they're fucked so good
in the back or in the front
in the ass or in the cunt
when they rub + they hump
when they moan + they grunt
talk to me sweet thing
come on tell me what you want

sit on my face & rock your hips
I want it all against my lips
drag your nails hard down my back
& put your hands under my ass

limp wrists raised fists
fuck queer to resist
limp wrists raised fists
queer bodies resist

flip me over it's my turn now
I'll guide your hand & show you how
to make me come cause I'm not broken
fuck me babe like you know it's a sin

limp wrists raised fists
fuck queer to resist
limp wrists raised fists
queer bodies resist

1 2 3 4
slip your fingers in my hole

push me up against the wall
one hand around my throat
the other up to the knuckles
in my hot wet flesh
fill me up with your fist
now get down on your knees
and suck me like this

limp wrists raised fists
fuck queer to resist
limp wrists raised fists
queer bodies resist

ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
The following statement addresses violence in the context of sex and systemic oppression.

We're pumped to put Hand Pies out into the world. It's about delicious, raunchy, consensual sex between queer and trans folks, which is something that needs to be represented more in media, both mainstream and underground. The lyrics were written by trans and cis women but are generally non-gender-specific. When we mention body parts we use words we consider empowering.

The representation of shameless queer & trans sexuality is powerful and necessary. We used food as a pretty obvious symbol for sex, cause food is sexy and good sex is delicious. The video was so fun to make. We put out an open call on DIY Halifax for folks to come take part. For some of us in the band, it felt amazing to be silly and sexual in ways we might not have felt comfortable being before, whether because we face queerphobia and transphobia, because we deal with body shame and histories of disordered eating, or because we're getting comfortable with sex and desire in ways that are new. In any case, getting consensually sexy with our friends and our food felt amazing. It felt like a big fuck off to the oppressive, heteronormative, cissexist, body shaming culture we live in.

We also recognize our representations of shameless queer & trans sexuality are limited. We embody a privileged demographic of queer and trans communities. We want to be accountable to this. These privileges are real, and we recognize they make our transgressions from oppressive norms immensely easier.

It's easier in a fat-phobic, body-shaming society for us as thin people to eat food in a shameless way. And as (temporarily) able-bodied people, we don't have to deal with the patronizing, oppressive assumptions of asexuality that people with disabilities face in an ableist society. White privilege means we're not constructed as animalistically sexual, as rape-able and disposable in the ways people of colour and particularly women of colour and queer and trans people of colour are in this misogynistic, transphobic, heteronormative, white-supremacist society.

The participation of the folks in the video was supported by the same systemic privilege and oppression as was ours. The Halifax punk community, and we would say most punk scenes in Canada and the US, tend to be predominantly white and unwelcoming to people of colour, either because they're structured around the privileged experiences of white punks, or because white punks in the scene are explicitly racist, or both. The same goes for queer scenes, in Halifax and elsewhere. The exclusionary nature of punk and queer scenes has been written about by many rad and critical queer and punk people of colour, by fat queers, by queers with disabilities, and by many other radical people who see how somewhat subversive scenes can reproduce much of the same oppressive shit as the mainstream. This is something we read about, talk about, and think about a lot.

We want to create powerful, positive art. We also want to be open to criticisms about the things we create, and connect with folks who want to do the same. If you'd like to share your thoughts, you can get in touch with us at eekumseekumhfxATgmailDOTcom.
