Lawd have mercy, Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Gray. LOL 2 eleven. Everything was spot on, but I have 2disagree with your post-modern, post-truth version of Moby Dick from a feminist viewpoint.
.
From this humble male apprentice of the beta-males-only membership including Ishmael, may I tweak poor-sensitive-Ishmael from a Y chromosome point of view?
.
I see him as the jilted divorcee about my age. Yes, everything is about me like Ahab’s single-minded quest. Ahab is that crazy Uncle who showed you all the naughty stuff when you were not ready. They took a road trip through Bangkok & below the treasure trail.
.
They met crazy dudes like Queequeg who showed Ish how2 drink a keg & knot get queasy. They danced on the poop-deck wearing the robes of a circumcised sperm whale. The all-men crew looked liberated especially the zaftig one looking like the engorged ghost of a pope baptizing the drunk Gentiles & wait 4i.t. .. rainbow sea-men.
.
Moby Dick was just a dick who screwed Ish's X with his big white member & left him high & dry looking for a razor or a gun. Ish, his uncle & Q decide to hunt down Robert like an X’s dear caught between Ishmael's barbed or lampooned crosshairs.
.
Ahab used 2B a Navy Seal. Why not 1 hunting a double-crossing whale? Sadly, the Big Whyte Dick was Black Ops & hunted the Seals & his peops 2bloody pulps Quentin Tarantino style.
.
But Ish got away with a whale of a tale riding on a sepulcher made of Stone until the Coast Guards came and rescued the sole survivor of a doomed phishing trip during the Purrrfect Storm..
.
Sadly, Melville never got that atomic wedgy or that Pulitzer. He died in penury like I probably will be. Think it, be it. Think it, be it.
