Here's queer dance-punk band Le Tigre's "Deceptacon":

And lead singer Kathleen Hanna, in her own words on feminism and oppression:

I guess the way that I see it is, y'know, the feminist issue is... everything is connected. Racism, homophobia, colonialism -- it's all a part of the same kind of binary system where there's an oppressor and the oppressed. And obviously there's really confusing places that aren't so cut and dry, or black and white. Like who's the oppressor and who's the oppressed?

I liked the song. Is Kathleen Hanna with the band?

Too bad she didn't think about before playing Michigan Women's Music Fest with its woman born woman/no trans women allowed policy...
