I was in a thread of Heather's creation when someone (too tired to remember whom) said she hadn't seen many stories of women fighting men. In my weariness I came up with this explanation off of pure speculations of society. Guess I just love debating? [Disclaimer: I'm not sexist, nor am I trying to be, especially not with presidential campaign lurking around the corner. Opinions expressed do not pertain to me.] In our Western societies, a guy fighting a girl is pretty much a lose-lose situation for him. He wins: congrats, you just beat up a defenseless damsel. He loses: "Dude, you just got beat up by a girl." Sarcasm runs a muck, though I think this could be somewhat true. It could deter some from thinking the super bad Guy was really even all that powerful to being with. Maybe others feel it will provoke some public outcry if it goes the other way round (esp. if there's no rape scen e and the girl doesn't go running off to some anti-hero to save her). Though it could all just be unconscious traditionalism... Perhaps, I'm just rambling due to my lack of sleep, but maybe there is something to all of this? What do you think?
