  • This tape portrays the feeling of sadness when one loses an exciting, idolized friend and an object of love through a change in gender: when a femme fag crush transitions into a butch dyke. The pirate here represents a figure of freedom, adventure, outlaw, and difference, inspiring feelings of awe and fear, identification and desire. The pirate in the bathtub is trashy glamour ("bathing beauty") and reflects a sense of play.
    The trendy, academic discourse about the fluidity of gender, sexuality, and performance is here questioned and made more complicated.
