“Do men have women heroes?” That’s the intriguing question that attorney Jessica Brown asked her Twitter followers. The responses that she got were very varied and Jess sparked a real debate on the social media platform.

The responses were refreshingly honest and people went into detail who their female heroes are and why. A lot of people said that they see their mothers and Margaret Thatcher as their personal heroes. Scroll down, have a look at who some men call their personal heroes, and upvote your favorite tweets. Oh, and let us know in the comments below who your female heroes are, dear Pandas.

Jess’ thread got more than 106.9k likes on Twitter, was retweeted 10.1k times, and got a lot of people passionate to talk about the subject. While not every interaction was friendly, the important thing is that people got to talking, right?

Am I reading it right she worked 26hrs, walked the dog and had a presentation? I am not sure that is healthy, regardless of being pregnant. I am not sure that is something to be proud of either.

One conclusion that you can make from the attorney’s thread is that some men definitely have women heroes while others are upfront about the fact that they idolize other successful men. In other words—a lot depends on each individual person.

However, why are some men more reluctant to have female heroes? It might be related to the fact that some boys have trouble accepting women superheroes. Actress and Harry Potter star Emma Watson touched on this issue in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. In her opinion, boys have been conditioned to look up to male superheroes and avoid female ones.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is another amazing female politician. She should be the first female president :)

“It’s something that they are not used to and they don’t like that. Anything that deviates from the norm is difficult to accept. I think if you’ve been used to watching characters that look like, sound like, think like you and then you see someone up on the screen and you go, ‘Well, that’s a girl, she doesn’t look like me. I want it to look like me so that I can project myself onto the character,'” Watson pondered.

She added that girls feel less threatened and have an easier time relating to all characters, whatever their gender might be.

“Women are great at doing that. We see whoever is on screen and we recognize the human qualities in the man that we relate to and there’s not such a gap, but for some reason, there’s some kind of barrier there where [men] are like, ‘I don’t want to relate to a girl. I don’t want to, I don’t want that,’ which I think is inherently part of the problem,” the actress and UN ambassador for the HeForShe initiative said. However, not everything’s grim and Watson believes that things are slowly but surely changing.

She's the Lioness of West Sumatera who fought against taxes levied by the Dutch East Indies Company on the population of Manggopoh. Despite still nursing an infant, she successfully led the rebellion, resulting in her husband being exiled to Manado while she was imprisoned with her child.

If you trust AOC, I have a bridge in Broolyn to sell you. I live just one district over from her and she is not well liked in her district or the area around it. She happens to live ina 6.5:1 D:R district and had a primary where less than 10% of registered Democrats even bothered to vote because she had an unlikeable opponent. She polls 17% approval in her district and lower in NYC. Her campaign workers and most of her money are from other States. She is horrible politician, and the biggest phoney you will ever meet. The only people who admire her are those who don't live near her or have met her. Trust me, run away from her

About 10 days ago, she was blowing soap bubbles in a little girl's face, for a photo. Someone should tell her about the pandemic.

"Freedom is always the freedom of dissenters." -Rosa Luxemburg, a wisdom that has been forgotten. Nowadays, thought crimes are getting prosecuted, sometimes in some countries in a court of law and very often by news media and on social media sites. Intolerance towards dissenters is constantly growing.

Yes, but it's nice to say at least the names of some of them in order to visibilize them. Because men are always found in google (or duckduckgo, or wherever) by their name while other genres are "a woman", "women", "they", "anonymous" or so.

She was a ruthless defender of the wealthy and the powerful, an ennemy of the working class, gays, women and anyone who wasn't english. She was evil incarnate and the day she died made me happier than I had been in a long time. I wish there was a god so she could be roasting in hell.
