New Obsession: Women Fighters In Reasonable Armor

I’m not a huge sci-fi or fantasy fan, but almost every time I watch one of these films or look at illustrations lifted from graphic novels from the genre, I get crazy peeved by the stupid costumes they put their female characters in. How are these lady warriors supposed to fight anybody in such skimpy, sexy garb? It just goes to show how much of this stuff is created around the male fantasy . And that’s why the website Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor is so awesome. It specifically collects images of female characters dressed in actual fighting garb. Check it out–and then think about the way you typically see female heroines portrayed, and how much fabric and armor they get to wear. [Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor]
