It hadn’t occurred to me until today that there’s another obvious cause of Damara’s… whatever Damara did… besides Meenah’s bullying and Rufioh cheating on her and her linguistic isolation — she was the Time player of a null session which dragged on for years and produced…

Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com »

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

(Bolding mine)

*joyous screaming*

The goddess Frejya has her own version of Valhalla, the paradise field of Fólkvangr, where she receives half of those slain in battle and all women who die a valiant death. Generations of misogynistic male scholars were baffled by this “contradiction” and came up with bullshit theories like ‘oh there must be two different warrior societies which men could join, one for Odin and one for Freyja for some reason.’

Actually, it’s because half the warriors on that battlefield were women. 

This is why I advocate feminist viking metal.

“The best thing about writing fiction is that moment where the story catches fire and comes to life on the page, and suddenly it all makes sense and you know what it’s about and why you’re doing it and what these people are saying and doing, and you get to feel like both the creator and the audience. Everything is suddenly both obvious and surprising… and it’s magic and wonderful and strange.”

– Neil Gaiman (via aquestionofcharacter)
