I hate when I do that, basicly gave away the entire article in the title. That basicly means I am typing something that no one is going to read…oh, heh, so just a normal blog post for me.

In anycase, for anyone who has watched Xena, or anyother hokey show with woman warriors,  are used to this over done plot point. You know the one, warrior maid refuses to marry until she meets the man who can defeat her in combat. Because that is what women really want in a husband. Not a great job, not a caring personallity. No, they want a man who can and will rough them up and boss them around….naturally these shows are written by men who never have and never will get to know real women.

Or will they? In China there are two women, Xiao Lin and her sister Yin  who say they will not marry until they are challenged and defeated in combat by a suitor. Lin says “They can choose open-hand combat or any weapon they wish but we won’t be  holding back. If they can’t beat us, they aren’t worthy.” Her sister Yin says “We tried dating agencies but the men we met were all too weak. ‘We could beat  them easily. So we went back to ancient ways, called bi wu zhao qin, which was  how warrior princesses would find their men.”

And to top it all off, they will be wearing masks so their suitor/opponents won’t know which one they are fighting, or even what they look like until afterward. It sounds like a scam to me.
