"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.
I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.
How dare women try to have nipples.
Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.
ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.
Totally had an ale named after Anne Bonny and it was delicious. But not quite as delicious as this amazing story of lady pirates.
“Woman?” She chuckled. “Is that meant to insult me? I would return the slap, if I took you for a man.” Dany met his stare. “I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, khaleesi to Drogo’s riders, and queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.”
Kamikaze Girls (2004)
During her recent series of appearances in New York City, we had the chance to sit down with prolific lolita model, Kawaii Ambassador, and Japan Lolita Association president, Misako Aoki.
Sitting with Misako in Alice’s Tea Cup – a small teahouse in the Upper East Side of Manhattan – I notice her attitude is markedly different from when I had met her two days earlier, while she was being subsumed by a crowd of her biggest fans. Her trademark kindness and beauty remain, but she seems less reserved, as if the “character” of being a demure lolita president has melted away a bit. In its place is a pure enthusiasm for lolita fashion, and a mockery of my inability to eat a scone.
This article is actually super interesting, especially the bit about the trend towards classic that we’ve all been seeing and the differences between Japanese and non-Japanese Lolitas.
