I am glad you liked it!! Now you know about as much on female Samurai as I do. How they dug up all this history I don't know. Maybe it is like first hand accounts of Custer's Last Stand at the Little Big Horn. Historians didn't want to record what the Native Americans had to say until much later.
It would be fun to learn more about it. One thing I do know is females were always called into service as archers. That may account for so many females skeletons found on ancient battlefields.
Another little known topic is ancient Christians were in Japan during the 9th and 10th centuries. That, however, is another topic for another thread. I don't know if Hello! Online moderators and management would allow me to discuss that.
I was given a 30 day suspension for using "inappropriate language" to a fellow H!O member who's signature line listed H!P women he wanted to abduct. I knew I would be disciplined for such language, but felt so strongly against the abduction of women I was willing to take the punishment. Two members of my family have been abducted and raped. Displaying a list of women for abduction is not cute. It is not funny. It is a sick obscenity. Women who are abducted are raped, forced into marriage and/or sexual slavery. Many are murdered. Survivors of abduction & rape are emotionally harmed when they read where some man wants to do it to another woman. SPEAK UP!! END THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!
