Would you believe a full suit of armor or it's predecessor chainmail weigh 45-55 pounds? The weight of the clothing of a fully tricked out woman of the era was also between 45-55 pounds. I find both facts astounding, but I'd have guessed the armor much heavier.
I'm reminded by this card the indignation we dress ourselves in varies by subject. I can wear it all, on my very highest horse if the subject is child or animal abuse. For self abuse, I might armor up in a light scarf.
"One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation, and compassion." ~ Simone de Beauvoir 1908-1986
