I remember the last time this was posted some guy posted a response in the comments then. I will try to reiterate it, but I am doing it solely out of memory. While most of these facts are true, they are completely over-glorified. The only reason women were considered citizens and could own land is because all the men would be off fighting or training. They did not give a **** about the women. A woman could not expect to keep her kids whether she was married or divorced. At the age of 13 (I think that was the age) they leave their parents to go training. Marriage for a spartan was solely for the purpose of reproduction and the creation of more warriors. Sex pretty much mean the man came in, cut the woman's hair, and raped her. For recreational sex, men were more likely to turn to his buddy. Dying in childbirth was compared to dying in battle because childbirth produced more warriors. That is all they cared about: the production of more warriors.

I wasn't as colorful as the original commenter on the last time this was posted, but I think I got all the information.

Sparta was probably the harshest living enviroment. If the baby was born retarded, feed it to the wolves. They were taught to steal and not get caught, otherwise they would get a cruel beating if caught. They wernt fed, they had to find their own food. Constant training was put on them. They were molded warriors.

That's probably the weirdest fact I ever learned about any warrior from that time. We all look at them as the biggest, meanest, toughest people to exist. Yet they all would turn to their best friends and have some gay sex like it was nothing.

Apparently slaughtering your enemies all day makes you less sexist

More sexist actually. The men got to go out and do what they wanted all day why the woman had to tend to everything else. Then when he comes home he gets to **** , eat, and go to sleep.

Technically speaking women couldn be vikings since the word Vikingar is applied to men, and while information is limited, there havent been found a female body buried in Viking tradition or found on a battlefield.

From what we know, women did not join raidings as they took the responsebility for the farm when the men was gone.

They did not have same freedom as men, but for that era in europe they had a great deal of freedom.

There is actually a prety strong comment under the humour. Our liberties are taken away in the name of regulations meant to protect us while they are completely useless. Such grave tendencies in society call for satire to ease the world.

>Women could own land and were considered citizens
>Divorce was totally fine and women could keep their wealth and custody of their children
>Wore notoriously short skirts

Sounds a lot like modern society. Except that now when a woman divorces a man she gets to keep her wealth, the kids, his house, his dog, and if she doesn't want to work she gets half of his paycheque for the rest of his life on top of child support.

except that looking after kids IS work. Being a housewife ain't no part-time job.
User avatar #149 to #47 - subaqueousreach (06/17/2013) [-]
Being a parent is a full time job, regardless of your gender.

Single fathers who have custody of their kids however, have to be a parent as well as work their ass to the bone to provide for their family. And even then the wife can still claim alimony from him.

I like to view women as equals, but so far very few have showed me that they're actually trying for equality.

And that's why Feminism is sexism
User avatar #128 to #8 - goodcheese (06/17/2013) [-]
actually these are problems of the patriarchy which views and treats women as if they are not meant to be breadwinners and so if we elevated women as equals in the workforce and they received equal pay for equal work, then divorce proceedings would be done more fairly because women would be seen as equals in economic status to men. women get alimony and whatnot because they are deemed as domestic beings dependent on financial aid of a man. most feminists are against these unfair court proceedings. feminism fights the patriarchy which is a system that hurts both men and women because it discriminates and stereotypes both sexes based on their gender instead of their individual character.

Not necessarily, I mean sure, women can be really sexist, and real feminazis, but a majority of feminists are fighting for equal payment in the workplace, harsher punishment for rapists, who in some instances have gotten off scott free, (which could go either ways for guys too) and respect. But I understand where you're getting at with the whole "hating sexist women" because, even as a female myself, I've seen some pretty over the top feminists. Plus when feminists fight for equal rights they're not fight for hitting and crap, you know how people say "Oh well with equal rights we should be able to hit them", no because girls don't necessarily go up to men and hit them square in the face, though some have, plus men are naturally larger, not all the time, but mostly. And if they aren't, yeah, they should cunt-punt that bitch.

Td;lr Feminism isn't always sexism. Sorry for long post.

It was also told that men were raised slightly homosexual, so they would mourn over fallen warriors and fight even stronger after a comrade was fallen. I can't prove this but I've read it somewhere

Well Spartan men were notorious pedophiles.

But that actually has nothing to do with it. Ancient Greeks thought that being a badass meant you had to cry when someone died and be incredibly emotional, no wonder Spartans thought women were so badass.
User avatar #231 to #32 - zaggystirdust (06/17/2013) [-]
they did it to show how much they honored their fellow warriors and how much they cared for their well-being, rather than the modern kind of warrior that just shrugs when he sees his friends and family die.

so yeah, Spartans were bad ass bros

I heard that they would usually be gay with each other so that when they fight in battle they are not only fighting for their comrades but also their lovers

Tons of people were gay back then.
Spartans had no problem being gay.
Samurai had no problem being gay.
Pre-Christianity Celts had no problem with being gay.

Etc, etc.

I haven't looked at all the comment, so I'm sure someone's mentioned this, but absolutely none of this had anything to do with respecting women. Sparta was a pure militaristic society. Marriage didn't mean much there anyway because the warriors were off training 11 months out of the year. They simply came in, screwed the woman to impregnate her that month, then left again. The woman wasn't concerned with cooking and cleaning, they had slaves for that. Her only job was to produce more warriors. Men often fell in love with other warriors and sex with women was simply a duty to the state. They'd often also get younger men in better shape to impregnate their wives in order to produce stronger children. They were only citizens because they had to run the state and the slaves when the men were at war. They couldn't keep their children either way. Boys left for agoge (military training) at 7 and Girls at 12. Finally, the little thing about the knives has no historical backing.

Sparta actually ran on two ruling families...the "other head of state" would be the patriarch or matriarch of the opposite royal clan.

But the queen is still considered a head of state....
#257 to #203 - Jowi ONLINE (06/23/2013) [-]
No she wouldn't. Like in the UK, the Queen is head of state but Prince Phillip isn't.

When Henry the VIII ruled none of his six wives were head of state or else he wouldn't have been able to execute or divorce them as they would have been equal to him in power.

And does that statue stare back, judging you on your pitiful weakness with its cold, dead eyes? It's probably thinking, "Look at these soft northmen.
