Warrior Princess series by Mike Roshuk

Because obviously women can’t be warriors unless they make themselves as vulnerable as possible to being wounded

^ sums it up

I mean ariel makes sense (maybe??? does it?) but those are virtually the most useless armour designs I have ever seen WELL MY SHOULDERS ARE PROTECTED WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE I KEEP ALL OF MY VITAL ORGANS IN THERE

somewhere in the distance, Tarzan pokes his head up, “Hey, where have all of my hyper-feminine loincloths gone??”

Armor: works only for males, turns out.
(Screams quietly into Erasmus’s Praise of Folly.)

Not in the least defending the “female armor trend”, but to address one common component of it that adds nothing to the criticism- The idea of armor that only covers the shoulder and/or arm is plausible and historically accurate. Called a Galerus (shoulder) or Manica (arm), the traditional gladiator armor for someone wielding a net or trident sacrificed body protection for mobility and left the man naked except for a loincloth and armored arm and shoulder:

It’s debatable whether anyone went into an actual battle wearing this, gladiators were meant to die for the entertainment of the viewers, but the idea of someone fighting almost naked with armor only on the shoulder is not in and of itself absurd.

Of course, I haven’t seen a lot of male video game characters wearing one lately. I mean aside from this guy-

He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”

Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT

LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.

In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.

Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.

Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT. 

Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.

FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.

So so so great. I do want to add that the gifset expressions areamazing, though. “You’re so fucked. You are SO fucked…hes fucked right, love?” “Oh yeah, totally fucked.” “SOOOOOO FUCKED”
