This question will undoubtedly cause a barrage of statements, but let me ask you this:
Is cowardice a feminine trait?
On the surface, in these politically correct times, we convince ourselves not to ask certain questions. But let's face it: deep down, that's exactly
what many people - of both genders - think. You decide what the term means to you. Interestingly enough, in many different languages the word
'cowardice' was strongly associated with females. There are also many myths revolving around that notion. Yes, these are just myths, but they do
reflect a social attitude ( see Achilles and his disguise as a girl to avoid enemy forces ).
Also, how many times do we label females 'cowards'? Let's be honest here - that doesn't really happen. It doesn't really happen because -
oftentimes - cowardice is on par with ''girlish'' behavior.
I'm sure some of you will attack me and label this a troll thread, but whatever you do, the pesky question is going to remain right there in front of
you. By denying it you'll only be denying the obvious.
This is NOT a misogynistic/feminist/etc. thread. It's based on human history and inferences based on that history.
