Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

It's one of those ideas that's so radical, it might just work: women fighters wearing actual armor. You know, that covers their vital organs and protects them against damage. A new tumblr blog celebrates "Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor." The armor may be reasonable, but the pictures are awesome.

The Tumblr's about page pretty much says it all:

Nothin' wrong with sexy!

Cheesecake has its place.

But I like pictures of women who look like they are legitimately bad-ass. Women that don't fight in high heels. Women that clearly give a shit about the practicalities of getting in a lethal situation. Women who could most definitely kick my ass.

Women fighters in reasonable armor.
