The Walking Dead Creator: Women Are 'Generally Physically Weaker. That's Science'Laura Beck4/04/13 9:30pmFiled to: the walking deadComicsSexismAmcRobert KirkmanTVtweetFb6543EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkIf you've ever had an issue with some of the women's characters on AMC's The Walking Dead — the root of the problem might be in the source material. Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comics, definitely has some... issues... with women.AdvertisementSimon Abrams from the Village Voice reports Kirkman told him in an interview for The Comics Journal four years ago:I don't mean to sound sexist, but as far as women have come over the last 40 years, you don't really see a lot of women hunters. They're still in the minority in the military, and there's not a lot of female construction workers. I hope that's not taken the wrong way. I think women are as smart, resourceful, and capable in most things as any man could be … but they are generally physically weaker. That's science.First up, Kirkman, you totally do mean to sound sexist, so shut it with the crappy, disingenuous concern.Since when do you need massive amounts of strength to hunt, even as they do on The Walking Dead? The average fit person would be good to go — especially if they'd all been living under the same circumstances for so long. Plus, if we want to speak "in general", then women have more stamina than men — even swole bro trainers agree — and that's probably more crucial than being ripped when it comes to hunting.
