It is from the deep waters that we come.....

 PIRATE WOMANIFESTO
 
Pirates move on the water.
The element in which the primal feminine is at home.
It seems that at sea, women have the home advantage.
Women on board ships were either feared or regarded as bringers of luck.
Pirate women were considered especially dangerous, and accepted as
leaders at a time when women on land had been robbed of their rights and dignity.
We pirates set sail for new shores into a world of adventures.
Breaking out of structured obedience, preset orders and moral unities.
We plunge into unpredictability, danger, excitement, dance, song and everything that strong, free, cheerful action implies.
A pirate has developed her own kind of pirate life, determined by her self and no other.
Under the Jolly Roger, the black sea robber's flag, pirates show what it means
to live in a permanently actualizing process of individualization and liberation.
The love, loyalty and friendship that we have found in our pirate sisterhood springs from nothing less
than a serious attempt to find a form of life that can fulfill the piratical desire for truth and freedom.

"May our freak flag forever fly...for my strong Pirate sistahs and the men who love us that way."
Love Cree Summer, Pirate Honey Brown The Seductress of the Seven Seas/a.k.a. Our Lady the High Pimpstress

"Its from the deep waters that we come. 
And we are heartfelt and treacherous like those waters. 
We come with an unflinching devotion to the mystical and to God - representing life and embracing death."
--Pirate Freeda Bandita

"With weapons of mass seduction the pirates make love to the world"
Pirate Yoni Bologna The Wicked

A craving for non-competitive, non-antagonistic, non-critical female companionship has culminated in a group of at least 30 women who call themselves The Pirates. They have poetry circles and drum circles. The gathering is usually creative, often incorporating poetry, song and dance. The members include actresses Lisa Bonet, Marisa Tomei and Cree Summer. Summer is known at meetings as Honey Brown, Bonet is Freeda Bandita and Tomei is Scarlet Feva. The Pirates have become a movement that extends beyond Bonet's circle of friends. Read more about the movement at the Pirate Sistahs United website.

Here are snippets of various interviews of both Cree Summer and Lisa Bonet explaining what it means to them to be a Pirate.

"We meet on the full moons and we meet when someone has a baby and we meet when we miss each other madly. And what we do is just reflect back to each other our beauty and artistry. We call ourselves "pirates" because we do consider ourselves outlaws and pariahs and alternative livers."

"She called me one night and said,'We gotta be pirates,'" remembers Summer," Women who are able to take back what's ours spiritually, to search for treasure, and to share the booty.' Her creation of the pirates has made me see that part of being an extraordinary, talented, beautiful woman comes from surrounding yourself with other extraordinary, talented, beautiful women. It's like, Damn, that sister over there is bad, and if I'm in a group that she's in I must be bad too. Art is her life and her garden and her journal and her way of bringing together artistic people."
