It’s a tough year for Nordic people. Just recently, we learned that the real Swedes are black and that Sweden was originally a black country. Now we’re learning that Viking warriors were actually female.
It makes sense though. If you look at Nordic countries now, you’ll see women are ruling them and flooding them with their Somalian ancestors.
Mother Nature is bringing back balance.
An incredible grave containing the skeleton of a Viking warrior, long thought to be male, has been confirmed as female, researchers say.
The 10th-century grave, known as Bj. 581, was first discovered on the Swedish island of Bjorko in the late 19th century. Stunning artifacts found in the grave indicated that it belonged to a high-status Viking warrior, who, for over a century, was assumed to be male.
In 2017, however, experts published the results of a DNA analysis that revealed the skeleton was female. The amazing discovery garnered a great deal of attention and sparked plenty of debate.
In a study published this week in the journal Antiquity, the researchers responded to critics of the original study, explaining that they analyzed the correct skeleton and that there was only one set of human remains in the grave. “The simple and secure conclusion is that we have the right individual, who was buried alone, and that this person has been proven to be biologically female,” they explained.
The experts also reiterated the woman’s warrior status. “In our opinion, Bj.581 was the grave of a woman who lived as a professional warrior and was buried in a martial environment as an individual of rank,” they wrote. “To those who do take issue, however, we suggest that it is not supportable to react only now, when the individual has been shown to be female, without explaining why neither the warrior interpretations nor any supposed source-critical factors were a problem when the person in Bj.581 was believed to be male.”
Okay. I’ll bite.
Putting aside the fact that women are objectively weaker and dumber than males — which holds true even when they have a higher IQ than men due to their inability to use it, as they’re ruled by emotions — we can look at this from a pragmatic and evolutionary perspective focused on survival.
There are two tribes. A and B.
A is the Chad tribe, where men do the fighting, the hunting, and the thinking. Women mostly stay at the camp and care for the toddlers, cook and gather some berries, all under the protection of the Chads.
B is the Menstrual Wisdom tribe, where women rule and imitate everything their men do. They hunt with men, they fight alongside men, they pee while standing just like their men, and do pretty much anything their men do, but worse.
A meets B, and A wants B’s territory. They go to war.
They both send the same numbers to meet each other in the battle field, except the Chads sends their best — men — and Menstrual Wisdom sends a mixed force of women and men that are used to being ordered around by women.
Due to men being naturally stronger and smarter, the Chads defeat Menstrual Wisdom and head to Menstrual Wisdom’s camp. They arrive and find a mix of uppity teenage girls yelling profanities at bland looking Menstrual Wisdom young men.
You can imagine what happens next.
If instead both forces suffered severe losses and headed back to their own camps, the few Chads that returned would find all the women of the tribe waiting for them, and they’d be able to produce a new generation by having sex with all of their women. The few Menstrual Wisdom warriors that returned are not even guaranteed to be male, and even if they were, there’d be less women in their camp, as most would have died in the fighting, and they’d have a very hard time trying to replenish their numbers.
In short, a tribe that regularly sends women to fight would perish due to a lack of wombs to produce their next generations.
This is why some people may raise an eyebrow when they’re told this high-ranking Viking warrior was actually a womb-container.
Putting women to do stuff they’re not very good at is an unnecessary handicap. This equality thing where men and women both do the same thing is even contrary to the productivity-optimization strategies that industries use, where workers are specialized and have specific jobs instead of everyone doing everything and stepping on each other’s toes.
The warrior woman was buried in elaborate clothing and her grave contained a stunning array of weapons, including a sword, an ax, 25 armor-piercing arrows, a fighting knife, two lances and two spears. She was also buried with two horses, underlining her high status in Viking society.
Intriguingly, a bag of gaming pieces was also placed in the warrior’s lap and a gaming board was propped up beside her skeleton.
Set against this backdrop, the team behind the study noted other Viking women likely bore arms.
“We would be very surprised if she was alone in the Viking world; other women may have taken up arms in the same seasonal or opportunistic context as many male Viking raiders,” they wrote. “A few may have risen to positions of command—indeed, the quality of the individual’s clothing, and the presence of the gaming set, implies that she may have been one of them.”
It really doesn’t make sense.
Women’s periods, their estrogen-ruled minds, their weaker physical strength and wits, and overall the fact of being female itself is a huge disability.
Are we supposed to believe that Vikings had disabled leaders?
Doesn’t it make more sense to think that if this skeleton is really female, that she was buried in the tomb of the man that owned her, with the stuff of the man that owned her, because the body of the man that owned her couldn’t be recovered from a fight?
One pregnancy and she’s knocked out of the fight.
Despite the incredible glimpse into Viking society that the grave offers, many aspects of the woman’s life will remain unknown. “Can we be sure that the person in Bj.581 was a woman, in a gendered sense? No, we cannot. She may have taken on a man’s social role, while retaining a feminine identity,” explained the study’s authors.
