What a bunch of feminist ******** .

Actualy, the things writen above are true. All spartan men were forced into military duty, leaving the women and slaves to do everything else.

That said, Spartan women were the only women allowed to enter the olympics. Why? The spartan men literally killed the competition during wrestling.

It's true but it's way over-exaggerated. See comment 17.

But it's all perfectly true.

No offense, but that's how nature intended it to be..
User avatar #252 to #52 - oxyhawk (06/18/2013) [-]
If that was how nature intended it to be it would be called Human Selection rather than Natural Selection

I don't know why you got thumbed down for that. I remember seeing the ********* myself.
User avatar #105 to #94 - osimonmagus (06/17/2013) [-]
Yes, this is all fictionalized history.
User avatar #219 - ZeDoodler (06/17/2013) [-]
Yeaaaa but not really. As the anon comment below shows (anon did something cool for once, who knew) Sparta was a militaristic state and made the majority of their income by raping and pillaging nearby land. Furthermore, Sparta was still an aristocracy and the whole idea that Sparta didn't care about their lineage was a load of crap, soldiers would bare the crest of their lineage on their shields when they went off to battle. While the top 10% of the most powerful families in Sparta lived like kings in a near utopia, the remaining 90% lived in squalor and were typically slaves, indentured servants and if you were lucky you were a merchant. Otherwise you were off to battle dying for your state. Isn't history fun?

Paternal lineage. As in the male side of the family was less important.

Have you LEARNED about Spartan women?
Jesus...
they were ******* nuts... NOBODY would disobey them.
#66 - golbot (06/17/2013) [-]
First of all.... Spartan women were not citizens, they were treated better than athenian women, but they were worse off than, say, puritan women in new england. in order to be a citizen in sparta you had to be a member of the hoplite class. AKA, a soldier.

Dont use wikipedia as a source, whoever wrote the "spartan women" wikipedia article is a ******** . Read Herodotus.

Thumb me down all you want but i bet you offer a historically correct rebuttal.

Of course the tumblrfag feminazis are all over this.
User avatar #99 - iloveburzum (06/17/2013) [-]
Again, ninety percent of this post is lies.

Lies and fiction.

Use your powers of google, and research, to find the truth.

Look at all the ******** down there thinking 300 was an accurate representation of historical events.
User avatar #211 - CRosBY (06/17/2013) [-]
Meh, Sparta is still overrated.
User avatar #182 - toosexyforyou (06/17/2013) [-]
Oh boy... if you think this ****** true then I just feel bad for you. Way over-exaggerated facts being spewed by an idiot.
User avatar #169 - fuzzypickles (06/17/2013) [-]
I always see a healthy marriage, as the man, the kind runs his family, but the woman, the queen has all the power, and uses her almost unspoken female influence to authorise and assist the man run the family.
Man cannot function without woman, woman cannot function without woman.
They are instinctively teammates, and if their relationship is worked on for years, they may eventually become soulmates.

I had an exam on Sparta today and one of the questions was on Spartan women, I'm on this **** ;)
