RANDOM FIND: FEMALE PREDATOR

Found this the other day - its a custom made model of a FEMALE Predator. I'm not quite sure what to think. I guess I feel why bother? Why not make the Predator an ASEXUAL creature? While this may look cool on its own, I think it opens up too many bad possiblities. And the "sexy" approach is trite and creepy. Nice job on the actual sculpt and paint, tho.

What do you all think?

because weman are strong too JIM,..so if you have a male predator, it would be sexist to not show a female predator, bc wemon can do everything a man can,..ect,...ect,..ect,.....forget that this is an alien race, or that they seem to be created based on the Native Americans and a hybrid of their cultures. You HAVE to have a female counterpart to every male example. Just look at comics now. The idea of a "Strong woman" is the hundred pound sex pot who has tatoos and piercings, a bad attitude, andt can kick 3 grown men's asses who outway her about 400 lbs.......any thing else is sexist.

I long had the inclination to believe that the Predators in the movies were actually female, if they had any gender at all.
Its not such a stretch to believe. With social predators like lions, females do a majority of the hunting. Also, since these are reptilian beings and possibly even silicon based (they use glass to heal themselves) they wouldn't need the quintessential mammalian attributes, such as breasts, to be female.

Also in the 1st "Aliens Vs Predator" comic series by Dark Horse, the main Predator is revealed to be a female.

I guess comprise is the best solution here: GALACTIC HERMAPHRODITES!
