    Funnily enough romans didn't like female gladiators, ours is the only age where women are a noticeable percentage of the military, and I suspect except for the conscripts and guerrilla most of them are just contrarianists.

      But female gladiators tended to draw huge crowds (probably more so for the novelty than anything else), so a lot of Romans did actually like them, it's just the more vocal ones who b***hed about it.

                On the contrary, womyn have no finesse. At their best they play like mongoloids on gorilla biscuits. You go down a tier and it's literally watching children fricking around with the ball.

                I don't know toot about combat sports but to me, female fights look like they happen in slow-mo. Add to that the absolute lack of 'wow factor' since womyn have no KO power AND the fact referees are very quick to dish out TKOs.

                Fit women are hot and it's a shame female sports suck but it is what it is.

                People can be fit at any age, it's only a matter of time, resources, effort, and willpower. And unless you're extremely hard-up and work 12 hours a day just to pay the bills, the former 2 are not really a problem.
                Female professional athletes can get back competition-fit as fast as 6 months after giving birth. If they can do that, any b***h can, if she put her mind to it.

                So motivate her to do it.

              We always tend to think humans are constantly evolving but really that's not very true, we refine knowledge and technology over time thanks to accumulated knowledge but ultimately humans do not change very much themselves, someone who was smart back then would have been smart today, the modern man just has a greater wealth of information available to him to utilize. On a fundamental level the only difference between men of Rome and a modern American is cultural context, dick jokes require no context and are therefore eternal, the first joke ever told was probably dick related.

        Scythians and Sarmatians were also fricking psychos. Until recently historians didn't believe horseshit stories from the greeks and persians about scythians wearing human skin.
        Then some archeologists found burial mounds with dead people wearing exactly that. And quivers, bags and other shit made out of human bones and skin.

          No that was a known thing, it was why duellists sometimes took off their shirts too
          It was a regular part of battlefield surgery then to extract the ball and search the wound for clothing fibres carried into the wound which would often fester and cause infection which killed many

          I sometimes see it called "The Emancipated Duel" or something like that, a princess and noblewoman got into an argument about flower arrangements for some important social event. Allegedly got so heated. They agreed to fight a duel with swords to first blood. I think maybe they were Austrian but they did it in Liechtenstein to keep a lower profile. One of the witnesses had medical training and she was worried about dirty clothes getting into any wounds so they both went topless. It obviously didn't stay secret cuz there were artistic depictions of it and articles from the time.

        if this happened they would have most likely fought a Mensur like their male relatives did at their Crops. Mensur was the way of fencing in the German speaking world at the time and still is. That the illustration if with rapiers shows that it was made by a foreigner that doesn't know German culture.
        female mensurs really aren't worth looking at tough even if they'd fight completely naked. If for no other reason that the women that larp as Bursche or Corpos are all ugly as sin and then some. The woman's role in q student fraternity is to sit in the champagne box and let the boys get on with the drinking and singing.

    >Murmillo or retiarius, which do you choose?
    Between the two, the retiarius is clearly the superior choice. She reminds me of my one true love: the free-spirited hoplite.

      So, what, this artist tells all their patreonsimps to come onto /k/ and spam their shit for free marketing, or is this just nogunz autismos coordinating on discord inbetween rounds of the latest freetoplay slop?

        Neither. It's the age-old "Can I turn [x] into a sexy woman?" phenomenon.

        You can clearly see that this are 4 different artists. Just the first entrees you get when you search Gladiatrix.

        Do you really have to be such a homosexual about everything? Every fricking thing is a conspiracy targeted against you in specific all the time. You cannot handle groups larger than a dozen liking anything before your autistic screeching starts up again.

        >Turning things into girls
        Gladiatrix were actually a real thing, gladiator fights were just a spectator sport like wrestling with very few actual deaths and some guys got the genius idea of "hey, what if we organized a few fights between females?"

          Indeed it was a show. Not that human lives mattered. But still the Ludo or owner tried to secure his investments by not killing the popular or good fighter.2k0rs
