“Warrior” is a word that has been appropriated as an adjective for the women too.

“warrior” is not a gendered term. It is most often applied to me, but countless women have been warriors. “Witch” is pretty much universally feminine. When it is not, when it is applied to me, it usually is done so with the knowledge that it is a feminizing term.

ALSO, and more important, “warrior” is a positive term. How often has someone had a “warrior hunt” (and meant that they were hunting down and unfairly prosecuting warriors)? And how often are men NEGATIVELY labeled “warriors” when they are calling out other powerful men?

You’re protestation is literally like someone saying “hey, did you hear about how cyanide is poisonous?” And you’re screaming “BUT WHAT ABOUT FLOWERS? DOES ANYONE TALK ABOUT HOW NICE THEY ARE?!??!”

Your response is the typical “WHAT ABOUT THE POOR POOR MENZ!!! THEY NEVER GET THE ATTENTION AND PRAISE THEY DESERVE!!! WAHHHH!”

Don’t worry. I’m sure somewhere some man will give you a biscuit and a pat on the head (and maybe he’ll send you a cool dick pic, too).
