Right, but imagine you’re Queequeg in this situation, and you’ve probably had a long day (I mean, being nonwhite in 19th century america sucks In General but also being the Prettiest man alive also has got to be tiring, I'm sure), and you just wanna come home to a bed and a room you’ve paid for and expect to be yours and yours only, only to find this weird white twink in your BED!! watching you!!! poor man # queequeg deserved better 2k20
(also, can we Talk about the danger peter coffin put queequeg in by putting a random white man like this into his room? A LOT of white men in that situation would have hurt Queequeg and gotten away with it. coffin you ass)
anyways, back to your regularly scheduled queer shenanigans.

no livestream this week, but we'll probably be back next week with one!
last week someone commented on ishmael's jammies, and i have a confession to make: they're literally just his regular clothes but with his waistcoat removed. a demonstration:

see you next week!

buddy i don't know how to tell you that nineteenth century america was rife with chattel slavery and indigenous genocide and that saying that it just sucked for "everybody" on a comment that explicitly references that violence is just uhhh. yikes.

I just wanted to note that your commentary here and on Tumblr, on how Coffin was jeopardizing Queequeg's safety by placing a random white man in his room, reframed how I look at this scene in a way I think was very necessary. Thank you for pointing that out!

Also, yes. Your Queequeg is stunning.

yes! it's part of why though i love how melville writes ish and queequeg, i do take some issues with the idea of queequeg just immediately and 100% dropping his guard around ishmael, because that's still a very dangerous situation for him! the word of a white man like ishmael could get him killed! so. i think it's important to acknowledge the kind of danger that he's in!
