When writing female warrior characters, learn from Xena.

You know what Xena never did?

Say she wasn’t like other girls.

Put down typically ‘feminine’ skills

Say that her enemies ‘hit like a girl’ or mocked them by saying ‘they got beaten by a girl.’

Judged other women by their preferences or lifestyles.

Xena was strong not because she was like a man, but because she was a damn good warrior who happened to be female. And she never thought otherwise.

Learn from Xena.
