Arwen VS Eowyn: We view them as characters, not as biblical examples

Needless to say, the Arwen VS. Eowyn debate is very big in the blogging world(though not AS big as forums would go). Some people have said that 'the great debate' has gotten out of hand with some people, but I have failed to see anybody be down-right-mean or rude, so I am not afraid to write this post. Its amazing as Liv as once said, how so many different people, have so many different opinions, and that ladies & gentlemen, is so very true. Some people hate Eowyn & love Arwen, some think Arwen is okay, but EOWYN IS JUST DOWNRIGHT AWESOME! For the most part, people who hate Eowyn hate her because she tried to steal Aragorn's heart. Other reasons, because she was a feminist, and she rebelled against her uncle. People who hate Arwen hate her because she was a "daddy's girl", "TOO pure", she wears "immodest clothing", she's boring, she "drools over Aragorn".

In eternity, it will not matter in the least who we prefer, because they are JUST CHARACTERS! You are not a sinner for liking Eowyn! It does not make you any more godly if you like Arwen...........

That is IF you view them as characters........

You know its amazing because who we choose as our favorite characters, usually become are hero's. And our hero's usually become our role-models. So it is VERY important who we choose to admire!!!!!

I am being very honest with you when I say that the majority of people who prefer Eowyn, are feminist. They have no desire to be like Arwen, because she stayed under the protection of her father, and she realized that is the MAN'S responsibility to go out to war.

Eowyn WAS feminist! Eomer & Aragorn both have to put her back in her place. And please do not tell me that it was her culture, because it wasn't. "Those without swords can still die upon them", this quote does not mean that women have to go out war and prove their ability! Tolkien knew this! This quote means that women NEED to DEFEND themselves when necessary, just like Arwen did.

The arguement that Arwen wears "immodest dresses" is probably one of the most dumb arguements I've ever heard. I'm not telling you to copy Liv Tyler! Because that's who is really wearing the costume, NOT Arwen! Don't ever believe a word when people tell you Arwen was impure. As for Arwen "drooling over Aragorn", don't listen to that either. It was a dream, NOTHING more!


You can never be "TOO pure", there is nothing wrong with being a "daddy's girl", and don't ever, EVER let anyone convince you that Arwen was "boring". Our mothers are some of our best role-models, and you know what? The World considers them to be wasting their time living a boring life. This is so untrue.

Thank you all for letting me write this all down! And if you read it all, that's AWESOME! I'm sure a lot of people won't. Soon, I'm going to try to write a post about Susan!

In Christ,

Return of the King

You guys know what to do!:) Just name your favorite parts from RotK!

One of mine is: No more despair

This part is just beautiful! And Theoden really expresses his love for his neice. A lot of girls today don't have that love, Eowyn was really blessed. A lot of people hate Theoden, but I just don't see how you could HATE him after THIS part! He's AWESOME!

Other Parts worthy of note:

2. Aragorn takes the paths of the dead

3. "A Far Green Country"

4. Arwen's Vision

5. The Fellowship Reunited


Well, now its just up to you guys! I will let you choose SIX! Good luck!
