Staind Singer Saves Girl From Stupid Moshpit, Wins Feminism (Video)
This is pretty damn great. Aaron Lewis, lead singer of Staind, noticed some men doing gross things to a girl who was crowdsurfing. He stepped in and had some shit to say:
“Alright, listen up, you f*cking *ssholes,” Lewis said. “That f*cking girl right there is, like, 15 f*cking years old, and you f*cking pieces of sh*t are molesting her while she’s on the f*cking crowd.”
And then he went on.
When I was 15, I was on the outskirts of a mosh pit at a Less Than Jake/Guttermouth show (shut up, I know) at the Electric Factory in Philly. I remember I was wearing a blue tank top from Delia’s. I was just there because I had a crush on a boy who was there, but I did like Less Than Jake. Anyway, some guy reached into my top and grabbed my boob. I had the presence of mind to kick him in the nuts, because I was fucking punk rock.
Anyway, dude from Staind is your new femmeladyist ally. Next he’ll be teaching Womyn’s Studies classes at Sarah Lawrence.
#YesAllWomen and all that.
