Was there a tactical reason behind that? Is there a higher moment of surprise when you realize you're facing a female army, so you don't take them serious enough?
From one of the links I posted

Their history traces as far back as the 17th century, and theories suggest they started as a corps of elephant hunters who impressed the Dahomey King with their skills while their husbands were away fighting other tribes. A different theory suggests that because women were the only people permitted in the Kingís palace with him after dark, they naturally became his bodyguards.

This is a group of women that would be perfect for a Zero Galvan illustration-

Highlights from the article that I read-
1. It was customary in the region as warriors of the time to return home with their heads and genitals of opponents.

1.Even after French expansion in African in 1890s subdued the Dahomey people, their reign of fear continued. Uniformed French soldiers who took Dahomey women to bed were often found dead in the morning, their throats slit open.


Thanks for posting about this.

I agree. They should be featured a lot more in this fetish since they're the Amazons that actually existed and there are historical accounts of them being able to defeat and outperform men in war.

Personally I always try to be creative when it comes to this fetish and try to imagine male vs female scenarios in all kinds of historic settings and like to research things like women warriors and powerful women throughout history.

When I first read about these women they just filled my imagination with ideas and images of the victories they achieved over men.
