Every Female Nurse, doctor, police woman, and veteran is a hero every day - same goes for their male counterparts. Toast to the Unsung Heros
Yes! All "First Responders" are heroes every day!... you're right again Mr C! :)
Thanks. didn't want to say first responders because you were reffering to women and to be real with you I've never seen a female firefighter. But yes you get the gist.
Where I am in the San Francisco Bay Area, there are female firefighters.I am also a Level One EMR First Responder with CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), a part of FEMA led by our local Fire Department. We do Search and Rescue with the local Police and Fire & Rescue :)
Oh right on. Then toast to you too. Thanks you for your efforts towards your community!
Thank you!I love it, it is all volunteer for me but we have gone through lots of training and get more on a regular basis.
I voted A
So far that one is 100% - I agree! :)
I certainly think so, but I don't like this idea that seems to be creeping up into society for parading people around as heroes for just being who they are or doing what they're paid to do. From my standpoint, a hero is someone who goes far above and beyond the rest of the population, with exceptional ability and exceptional courage, and perhaps sacrifice. Yet I certainly think there are women who still fit this category, but I don't like this attempt at making the idea of a hero encompass more everyday people to try to make it more and more inclusive. I think that undermines the very notion of a "hero".
I have a rude opinion that it seems like they're lowering the bar of what constitutes a "hero" sometimes for women and other minorities. It's like I see a single mother raising three kids being called a "hero" because she's working hard to support her three kids and loves them, but where's the exceptional quality here? Is the normal case for a single mother of three to hate her children and neglect them?And of course, this is a popular idea of "hero" since it's very inclusive and makes lots of people feel like they're also "heroes", but I don't like lowering the bar here because I think we need to set higher standards to hope to see more people rise up to them. I think lowering the bar makes people more complacent, patting themselves on the back for achievements which are not extraordinary.
So, in my opinion, the bar for what constitutes a "hero" should be sky-high. Very few people should ever attain that legendary status. I will probably never attain that status. But keeping such a high standard gives me something to strive towards.
To me, it's like if we have people who accomplish something, but a nontrivial percentage of people in similar shoes can accomplish the same thing, then it's not "heroic". To me, heroic action is something like 99.999+% of people (leaving only 1 in 1000 or less capable of being heroic) could not and would not do in the same shoes.
[...] action is something like [99.9%] [...]
I see women hero’s everyday in healthcare, from doctors & nurses etc to the patients themselves! That doesn’t take anything away from the men either though. I see hero’s in both genders! It’s 100% about personal characteristics, not sex. Put people in certain situations and you’ll see the ones that shine and shy away in both genders!
of course but remember they can also be villains and that is my only problem with Hollywood's version of "female heroes" that they never have female villains.Spartacus is a great example. I remember some of the Roman women were great as villains and there were also great female heroes AND supporters.
If you have refined technique through decades of martial arts training worth shit, the lack of upper body strength isn't really going to hold you back.Women are only held back by their unwillingness to become serious combatants. Their physical limitations are real, but they are overstated.
Of course! Every human being has the potential to become a hero. Gender doesn't matter. It doesn't even have to be through fighting either; saving lives, creating ideas and tools to make life better, curing diseases, all of these things could be considered heroic. And plenty more things I can't think of right now.
yeah there are female hero's - lots of them... just not warrior combat hero's. If you push that idea too hard a lot of wannabe hero's are gonna get the crap beat out of them.
Quite some women are heroes. I have to find mine and be a hero for her too 😉Strong, independent, beautiful, friendly and kind women 😍😍😍And they have a calming effect! Especially when cuddling 💞 I love women! I need a good woman 👩
Yes of course they can!! Girls join the military right? In fiction and non-fiction there are many female heroes
They can't.But they can be heroines. ...Now I will wait for some guys here to suggest a trans-hero?
Even if they're trans, they're still a heroine.
They can if they are willing to put in the effort, however I feel that most do not really care to.
I am the hero in my own life and I happen to be a girl
Go to any veterans meeting and you will meet some really strong, capable women. Likely they won't tell you they are a hero, but there are many,
Women are awesome human beings. More often than not they are the unsung heroes. The wind beneath a lot of wings.
Sure we can! My mom and Wonder Woman immediately come to mind!
No, girls are too weak and timid to ever be a hero, they will always need a guy to be a hero for them.
Of courseMy favorite female hero is Sarah Conner from the Terminator movies and my favorite female superhero is Wonder Woman
you got female cops, firefighters, solders, and not to mention lawyers (not all heroes wear capes)
Absolutely! not all girls are stereotypically helpless. Look at the women in the armed forces!Nuff said!
A hero in my eyes is someone who performs selfless acts at the risk of his or her own life.
Movies? Sure. It's just a movie and a work of pretending.
ofc my mom isn't just a hero she's a superhero
YES! ... yay for moms!!
Gal gadot is one n she is pretty too
Yes! She was an Israeli combat instructor, so FOR REAL! :)
Don't you remember the Cheerleader on "Heroes"?

Yes. Just take a look at Joan of Arc

Sure why not. My wife is my hero.
