Are you enjoying the Witcher on Netflix? I am. I think you should watch it. It does some big things very right. But, not according to idiot Andrew Klaven:
“Immediately I was put off by the fact that there’s a queen in this who fights like a man,” he declared. “There’s a couple of scenes where women fight with swords. And I just hate these scenes, because no women can fight with swords. Zero women can fight with a sword.”
“What I mean by that is in a situation where you are fighting men who are used to fighting with swords, you are going to get killed if you are a woman fighting with a sword 100 percent of the time,” he said. “A woman with a sword could kill somebody who doesn’t know how to fight with a sword. But in a war situation, where you are swinging this five- to ten-pound sword again and again and again, against much, much, much stronger men, they are going to kill you.”
This guy puts it a bit more eloquently than I would be able. Advisory for some mild language.
