I was looking for inspiration to encourage me to learn self defence and become empowered. Having searched deviant art for 'warrior woman' I was disappointed to find never ending reams of sexually provocative depictions of female fighters. The images detracted from my idea of what I perceive to be powerful. I had come across this image previously and started a search to try to find it again.
I respect that by depicting powerful woman you are not sexist. I am grateful for such empowering images as sadly they are hard to come by.
very cool! .... but why is it that in stories that would involved characters like this ... zombies, mad max, world has fallen into chaos basically .... women arent ever portrayed realistically? ... like these are cool, but why do we pretend women would get all bad ass? lol, they'd fall back to where they were before civilization ... ie they'd be currency, traded, looked at as property.
The ones that didnt accept that roll would very quickly be killed ... lol ... maybe Im just morbid, or thinking about it too much ... but I've never personally met a female that I think would man up and learn to survive .... they'd depend on men....
