I really hate the "she became a simple housewife" argument when it comes to the Naruto girls.
It doesn’t matter whether or not they decided to become stay-at-home-moms, it still doesn’t detract from their characters nor their accomplishments and strength. Plus, you can’t forget that Kishi is still a traditional man and Japan is still mostly a traditional place when it comes to household jobs. It was bound to happen whether you like it or not.
But seriously, with the girls becoming housewives, it hasn’t hurt them any way. Based off the Boruto movie, all of the girls are shown to still kick ass when it comes down to it.
Sakura: She saved a bunch of people by breaking the metal beam or whatever, and healed Hinata when she went after Naruto. She also most likely took charge of the hospital for all of the injured people during the invasion. SHE STILL KICKED ASS!!!
Temari: She aided Sakura by blowing the broken beam or whatever away and continued to help evacuate people to safety. The fact that she even had her fan in the first place is saying something! SHE STILL KICKED ASS!!!
Ino: She helped evacuate people to safety and probably looked after Himawari when Hinata went to try to save Naruto. Ino is still a badass people! SHE STILL KICKED ASS!!!
Hinata: Protected her daughter through the chaos, probably asked Ino to look after her so she could try to save her husband, off screen confirmed to try to fight Momoshiki and Kinshiki, obviously didn’t win because that spot was meant for her adorkable son, Boruto. Whether people like to admit it or not, Hinata is a badass who always goes after the bigger dudes! SHE STILL KICKED ASS!!!
Tenten and Karui: Even though Tenten isn’t really a confirmed housewife, and both women weren’t seen much (for Karui, not at all) during the movie, you can bet your bottom dollar that those two did their part in making sure that civilians made it out okay. #NotSeenEvacuationSquad! ALSO, Tenten is part of the Chunin exams so obviously she’s still doing her part! THEY STILL KICKED ASS!!!
See! So no matter what or how these women are portrayed so far throughout the series, when it comes down to it, they will show you why you should never doubt and dismiss all of their progress that they had made throughout their lives all because they had kids, married the men of their dreams, and became stay-at-home-moms. If anything, they could be used as like a sneak attack weapon against those that don’t know who they are by name or face since everyone seems to think that being a housewife takes away all of your power, strength, progress, skills, etc.
These women are certified badasses, okay people? 💃
