Real women. The gladiator - epitome of male combat, well, not always male. The gladiatrix (mNSFW) is no myth. The evidence exists.

Preemptive answer: Cleavage is naturally resistant to stab wounds and needs no armor.

oooh, that gladiatrix link was a mistake. These women were awesome. They played the man's game with the best of them, several thousand years ago. While you are staring at her cleavage she is slicing your head off.

"There were female gladiators. They were regarded as absolutely a special treat. They were sufficiently rare that you would advertise them up front as something spectacular that you were going to have in the show"

From the review of the 2001 film The Arena: "Playboy playmates may seem unlikely choices to cast in the lead roles of a Gladiatrix movie; however, in the case of Timur Bekmambetov's remake of Joe D'Amato's 1973 classic exploitation movie, it proves inspired. Lisa Dergan and Karen McDougal excel in their roles, bringing real class to this movie."

This makes my day. Ass kicking woman. You go, girls.

And in the immortal words of the poet Nikki Giovanni:

A woman's work is never done,
so put down the mop and pick up a gun.

Watch out, dudes! :>
