Mermaid MMCXXXIII

This one is kind of gruesome. The leitmotif of mermaids being caught by fishermen (and eaten) is...how to say?...long-standing? Time honoured? I've seen it in MAD Magazine once or twice, by the way.

What sort of feminist commentary is this? On one hand, we have the mermaid, free, living comfortably in a frightening, dark and unfamiliar realm, able to lure men to their deaths with her powers, beautiful, alluring, etc., and yet here able to be caught and dragged in, and killed? by fishermen, men who are able to brave these harsh and dangerous environments.

Hmmmmm...
