Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

In a society where violence and brute strength determine access to resources, it is not illogical for a women to try and gain influence over a strong and violent man as opposed to trying to fight for resources directly. Sadly this WAS most of human history

Maybe we need to bring back the Dahomey Amazons. They weren't afraid of those big, bad men.

Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

This is a sad story, and just to think of all of the times we have whined about how are lives are bad. I guess it's normally because we don't hear or see much about things like this going on in our everyday lives. After reading the story it makes you glad you don't live in a society like that, I only hope something changes for the better for them. Makes me thankful of life being a father of 2 daughters.

Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

When the top Canadian womens hockey team is involved in an all out fist fight with American counter parts you know the world is unfolding. Supposed to be about sporting standards but given the chance either gender will degrade to action that they perceive as winning or survival or other issue de jour

Re: Most Dangerous Current Women Pirates..

The highest concentration of female pirates I've seen is at the Rennaisance Festival. I'm planning on going this weekend. Arrrggg!

Translate this page on google and read about: "Passageiras Clandestinas" and "Antónia Rodrigues ". That's related to what you are talking about:
