Writers should strive to describe women like Douglas Adams did
Example (taken from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency):
Michael usually referred to his mother as an old battle axe, but if she was fairly to be compared to a battleaxe it would only be to an exquisitely crafted, beautifully balanced battleaxe, with an elegant minimum of fine engraving which stopped just short of its gleaming razored edge. One swipe from such an instrument and you wouldn’t even know you’d been hit until you tried to look at your watch a bit later and discovered that your arm wasn’t on.
NOW THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT
Compare more women to exquisite weaponry! And not to pretty little swords. big, heavy, scary weapons!
