That's Not A Man Baby

Watched the series finale for Black Sails.

At the very end we're introduced to Mark Read.

Nice of them to slip in one last historical pirate just as the curtain dropped.

Appropriate since this pirate was closely associated with two staples of the show, Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny.

But he's better known as Mary Read.

    1. Mary simply disguised herself as a man so that she could pass as a sailor, then privateer then pirate. Transvestite at most.

      The definitely shown as feminine in the show, Anne Bonny likewise disguised herself from the crew. They only revealed their genders to each other to keep the competition between them over Calico Jack to a manageable level.
