After all, forget about the violence of combat; think how often ordinary industrial errors happen. A storm at sea rocks the boat, causing cargo to shift, a train derails, a cable breaks causing a container to drop, a drunk or inattentive crane operator swings a crate around and bangs it into something...Considering that a chain reaction that could eliminate the entire boat/train/shipping yard could result if one of those containers blew, spending significant money on transportation safety is easily justified by the potential losses that even a minor accident could cause without those kind of precautions.

    EDIT:

    Then again, I don't want to be isolated in some padded box. T'were I the company's employee.

So she's like Ren, linked to a culture but not an individual.
    Not really true, there is another reason.

    See, back when his mother Thetis wanted to keep Achilles away from the trojan war, she brought him to Skyros to live with the king Lycomedes while dressed as a woman as to conceal who he truly was from the greeks who sought him out. Naturally, Achilles was a manly name and he couldn't keep it for his stay.

    Some accounts of this story have him call himself Pyrrha while dressed as a woman, and off the top of my head I am 100% sure the Opera of it, at least, does use it as his womanly name. Despite the fact the opera is only 250 years old and Homer was totes dead by then, it can still count when attempting to figure out which Greek hero Pyrrha is based off of.

    So yeah, there was another reason to believe that Pyrrha was Achilles. Not exactly a well-known one, but still.

    Depends on the exact telling of the story, but that is part of the one on how Odysseus got Achilles to join the war. When they couldn't have Achilles found, he went disguised as a merchant, put out a bunch of baubles and then a bunch of weapons. The woman who went for the weapons was Achilles (and that ignores the example of characters such as Atalanta doesn't it?).

    Edit.
    As for Moczo's short work, Weiss is scary.

    I dunno, I think Odysseus wouldn't have been entirely disappointed if he could have gotten women like Atalanta in on the war.

    I mean, worst case he can just try again and eventually he'll get Achilles.

    Rather, Odysseus laid down a bunch of stuff including weapons, and then made it sound like they were under attack. The women and children freaked out, but Achilles picked up a shield and spear and went to see what's up. That's when Odysseus was 100% sure he'd found his mark.

    Because just looking at weapons wasn't definitive enough for Godlike Odysseus.

    Kind of like Achilles when he dressed as a woman at his mother's behest to keep him out of the trojan war, Thor that one time Heimdall asked him to dress up as Freyja and Freyja helped, and Mulan when she dressed like a man.

    JNPR is now team crossdressing genderbender.
    I called all of this stuff a month ago.

    This isn't being slowpoke, this is BL's patented recursive posting about the same seven things over and over.

    "disguised themself in the other gender of the other character"

    Since I still cannot make a link between Lie Ren and Mulan - maybe it's some guy who disguised himself as a woman?

    Maybe the trick is that Ren is actually female and we're looking at this the wrong way round!

    Levy is not impressed.

    Maybe that's why Nora's so adamant that she and Ren are not dating.

    Though now I'm imagining Ren pull a Naoto Shirogane. And Monty trying to sound feminine.

    Well, there is Lie Ren's symbol: a flower. Most assume it's a lotus, but (unless it's been officially stated somewhere) it could be a magnolia. A magnolia is what Mulan's name means.
