“When men fight, they cover themselves up in armor. When women fight, they go topless? I wonder what the artist is trying to portray.”

    Y’know, if it was 2000 years earlier, fighting naked would be an accepted way of the (celtic) warrior.

    It was believed that being pierced through your garments lodged pieces of the garments in your body and increased the risk of infection and death. Duels were done topless, as was training. Women trained separate from men, for obvious reasons.
