“You just want to stick flags on virgin territory and claim it as your own. God it’s pretty phallic actually. I mean, for example. In these folk songs. There’s always a man. Going off to war, in a ship. In a uniform. And there’s a woman, often called Nancy. Nancy is on the dock, looking nice, waving a handkerchief. And she says, hang on, can’t I just come with you?” – Rachel in Elinor Cook’s Pilgrims
