Pussy Riot Pirate ShockA lot of commentary about this book focuses on its shock value or its pirate theme and hence its post modern appropriation of Robert Louis Stevenson's “Treasure Island”However in truth these aspects are relatively superficial and of secondary importanceWhen it comes to appropriation it’s far helpful to acknowledge Kathy Acker’s use of Sophocles’ “Antigone” 1 2Multiple NarratorsEven though there are multiple narrators of “Pussy King of the Pirates” it’s arguable that they represent facets of the one person The narrator’s identity is multi faceted Each facet is a choice or an alternative Thus this strategy gives the author the characters and the reader the opportunity to investigate multiple possibilities What matters to Acker and therefore to us is that “There is a young girl Her name's not important She's been called King Pussy Pussycat Ostracism O Ange Once she was called Antigone ” This girl has suffered sexual abuse rape and incest in a patriarchal society as well as abuse and neglect by her mother potentially a symptom of her mother’s treatment by her husband Either way she has never really experienced reciprocal love the real buried treasure “My mother didn't love me and I loved her” As a result this young girl experiences both emotional and physical pain “I'm someone who finds that any pain is always physical pain and that physical pain isn't bearable” The girl is determined not just to escape the pain but to create a new alternative to the patriarchal society she has come from “This city was patriarchal that which allows the existence of none but itself for it had arisen and was arising only out of the rational moralistic bends of minds” Narrative ContinuumWhat follows is a roller coaster ride that for all of the different narrators and physical locations sustains a narrative continuumThis girl like Antigone rebels against male order and finds female pleasure and satisfactionAs soon as the girl leaves home after her mother’s suicide “My mother's inside me She wants me to suicide because she suicided” she starts work in a brothel in Alexandria where she meets other women with similar backgrounds and experiences Her first respite is the comfort of women “These women no longer children according to the society were no longer sexually desirable to men except perhaps as prostitutes; importantly according to her society they no longer possessed sexuality” Here there is both heterosexual and lesbian sex of varying degrees of satisfaction Inevitably this girl decides to escape again this time in pursuit of a different kind of treasure her own sexuality her “rising sexual energies” and her own bodily pleasure which she believes she can only find on Treasure Island which is located off Brighton in EnglandAgainst HegemonySome of the other women accompany her on her uest becoming pirates who join the other female pirates on the island These women share a sometimes drunken reaction to patriarchal society Silver the captain of the pirate ship says “It's from living in a society that disrespects its women and hates their bodies Especially when they masturbate This makes us turn to drink though I know that's not the way to deal with certain types of hegemony” Tougher than PiratesAt first it seems like Pirate Island is some separatist utopia but it soon proves otherwise Something in the girl’s makeup is still heterosexual if not ultimately bisexual which causes an estrangement from the other resolutely lesbian pi
