  • I may be Male, but I respect and treat all women as men's equals. Now that I'm older and a little bit wiser, I have a better understanding for and realize that stereotypes are something to be abolished. It used to be that I admired figures like Julius Caesar and Napoleon Bonaparte because I was mesmerized by their power and influence. But I see now, the respect they commanded was through fear. I now idolize the underdogs like Frederick Douglass and the civil rights movement, as well as the warrior women throughout history. Let this be my record for the changing times and the ideals I continue to believe in.

  • Amazing how history never teacher much of these legends. Religion has a lot to do with it, programming the masses to think women are weaker and beneath men. Women can have stronger hearts than men. There is always a reason when the masses are programmed to think a certain way. So why is it that the darkness of this world want the masses thinking women are weak and beneath men? It's because women more often then men have a greater heart of love then men. Real love is a power not an emotion and this is what will create a global shift on his earth.

    • I don’t necessarily agree... these woman all tend to be well known in their home countries. I knew one of them, Boudicca, but that has a lot to do with my family’s interest in history and, more specifically dealing with her, our family history. There is a folk-ish song about her by a Scottish folk singer that my mom and grandparents liked so I knew about her from a young age and pretty much all kids in London know about her because that statue of her is in London. My passion for history spilled over into my education and I majored in it, even writing a very lengthy paper about her, specifically!

    • @Adam Steed Yeah there is no scientific data that Ginchiyo Tachibana did anything besides hide in a castle. That Joan was nothing more than a peasant who never fought anyone in her life and that Boedica was nothing more than a coward who ran away. But Audie Murphy, Roy Benavidez, Xiang Yu, Sanada Yukimura were very real and well documented for their prowess. Let’s point out Tomoe isn’t even a proven historical figure and her stories are about as authentic as stories of Hercules. Herodotus himself admitted Cyrus fate was one of many different versions he heard of and Cyrus would have been 70 years old. But don’t mention these details just pretend these are historical facts when they aren’t. I mean really Tomoe? You might as well use Freya and Athena as an example.

    • @ALworld is Trash no scientific data supports your bigotry. NONE. All those GOP bills to legislate transpeople in sports is simply to police women's bodies. But you're so blinded, you don't see that. Do some actual non-right-wing research. Because trans people aren't even competing at that level, and when they do, some win and lose. But it doesn't fit your narrative. You people are why the world sucks. Conservative ideology is terrible worldwide. But you have to exist, so we make sure we keep doing the huma e and right things.

    • They weren’t for the same reason women are crying about trans people in their sports. Because this is a big lie and when they actually do have to perform. They have all their records broken and lose all their scholarships to the trans person 😂
