    @fuz al-nufi recommended the documentary last night: It is a BBC documentary hence a more pro-bosniak slant.

    Takes a closer look at some of the Bosniak crimes hence a more anti-bosniak slant.

    What a fucked up place, all factions seemed pretty savage.

    its been so long since i watched the show i can barely remember it. but i recall i stopped watching it because it went gay and the grrrl power was just too much to handle. the only times women ever had to fight was when their villages were attacked while the men were away. It simply completely ruins it for me when theres prety blond women leading armies and crushing men beneath their feet like ants. It never happened, its pure fantasy.

    Norse history has legit shield maidens even if they were far fewer in number. Only a fool would believe they could equal the average man in combat prowess, but there absolutely were Viking chicks who would utterly destroy you in armed combat, and still at least a few who could beat you senseless without a weapon. Granted, most of them were probably 230 pounds of clit and gristle, but whatever.

    It has that appeal to feminist white women's fantasies about having some superwoman great great great grandmother who kicked all sorts of men's asses. That's why my hardcore feminist aunt likes the show, especially the main character's wife, who shows every trait of a medieval feminist.

    amazons and 'shield maidens' were just women who had to fight to protect their villages while men were away. There were no great grrrrl warriors, its fantasy.

    A short, scrawny Mediterranean man can kick a large Nordic woman's ass in most cases.

    Of course there were great "grrrrl" warriors. They were just extremely rare and looked much different than what we see in Hollywood. Nobody is claiming that the average Viking woman had any prayer of defeating a trained man, but there were still a small handful out there who could hold their own with some of the big boys. While strength is still important, having a weapon that can kill with a small motion of the wrist changes the game significantly. Most women lack the upper body strength to wield spear or sword, but one who is strong enough to manage that could have a fighting chance against someone with less skill and aggression.

    Don't get me wrong; the idea of an army of petite women kicking the shit out of seasoned warriors is utterly ridiculous, but lets not make extreme all-or-nothing generalizations about it the way a woman would do.

    There are bitches out there who can rebuild an engine and shoot a perfect game at the trap range, just like there are dudes who can embroider flowers on a handkerchief and babysit kids for a living - just not my kids, please.

    Vikings. I'm curious if they'll bring back Bjorn's first wife, Porunn.
    Although their daughter did drown.
