almost everyone who will read this is a woman. of those, some will have experienced (or in some cases continue to experience) revulsion at the trappings of girly-girl-hood. myself, i went through a period as a teenager where it was really intense; it's faded now to the point where i will voluntarily wear pink and/or frilly clothes. within reason. (maybe a tiny bit remains, though i do want to say there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a girly-girl, go hard if you are.)

i recently hypothesized that my affinity for soldiers and/or warriors is related to that part of my life; my fandoms are littered with people behind enemy lines, fighting for their lives. sometimes they're loners, and sometimes they're with a small, tight-knit group who are the only ones who understand what it's like to be under fire, to whom they are insanely loyal. i identify strongly with them, and they are almost invariably men. i found that interesting.

do you find you identify with soldiers or warriors in your TV or movie watching? what are your fighter fandoms? and if you're comfortable identifying yourself as a former or present punk, goth, or girly-girl, maybe speculating about how that affected your relationship to a soldier's story, i'd love to hear about it.
