Say sayonara to the days where men were famous for being a woman’s ADT alarm system. Today’s girl needs no opposing gender at her side to act as enforcer. She has been empowered, if not by actual fight then by words and brains. Those father figure-types we’ve seen roll through are ebbing away as the years progress. The modern-day woman, sporting anything from deathly black combat boots to four-inch heels has also got balls of steel.
Figurative balls, of course.
Oddly enough, as we are seeing women today kicking ass in a myriad of ways, we men are finding ourselves utterly turned on.
Check out some of the girls we can’t help but want in our lives.
1. Sarah Connor
Who’s a bigger badass than Sarah Connor? The woman has gone face to face with an array of cyborgs, actually one of them a couple of times. Regardless of her situation, she stayed standing. There’s something very sexy about a strong woman who backs down to no man… or terminator… or ex-California governornator.
2. Lara Croft
It’s hard for me to say no to a woman with a gun, especially when the woman has the curves that Lara has. For the record, I’m speaking of the film version — Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft. I swear.
3. Sarah Silverman
Kickass women don’t need to be made up. A sense of humor is one of the sexiest things a human being can have. Sadly, word has it she’s taken.
4. Lisbeth Salander
Some guys refuse to admit it but there’s something incredibly hot about a gothic girl. It isn’t so much the combat boots and baggy jeans that make them desirable. No, it’s the tattoos, piercings and seemingly rough personality. Oh, how our fantasies run wild at the sight of that dark lipstick, pale skin and nose ring.
5. Chelsea Handler
Chelsea is a woman notorious for taking absolutely no shit from anyone… men especially. Go and try to put her in her place. Many have attempted, both on and off her show, and failed miserably. My guess is you won’t be any different. Hawt.
6. Natasha Leggero
Comedienne Natasha Leggero is another great example of the funny/sexy woman who’s not afraid to take a man down. She’s known for her blunt point of view and sexy looks, a combination that makes nearly any guy woozy. Myself included.
7. Ivanka Trump
I’m pretty sure the only resemblance Donald Trump’s daughter has to him is the surname. And let’s be honest, you can’t drop that… even when you get married. And while the name was huge before she came along, that trademark grew even more so when Ivanka began blossoming into one of the sexiest women I’ve ever seen. She’s got the looks of a supermodel and the brains of someone who, frankly, I’d be afraid to have a conversation with. Regardless, what guy wouldn’t want to date her?
