Now, I am not denying that hero can apply to a woman, but in my experience on this world people always taught me hero is typically for a man and heroine is typically for a woman but the hero can be interchangable. I'm not denying that, I give you that one because it is true. In fact if my knowledge is correct I said that at least twice. But at the end of the day it is still English.  Heroine is a word in the English dictionary just like hero is.  Just because one is used more than the other doesn't make the other incorrect.  Heroine is still an appropriate term to describe what she is.  That's the point you are not getting. Did you get it that time? We can go over it again, I can even draw pictures if it will help.

Third the 'icing on the cake' as you put it is that fact that heroine is a homophone with heroin.  To my response is, so what!? Homophones exist that doesn't mean they are viable ground to base an edit off of.  In context 'heroin' doesn't make any freaking sense. It is like saying the fisherman stabbed a wail.  It makes no sense, obviously they are talking about the mammal the whale and not a cry.  In context heronie is perfectly reasonable, Mulan's 'occupation' of heroine of China =/= the heroin of China.  They aren't cutting her up and snorting her. It makes no sense.  Obviously, this is a difficult concept for you since you based your original edit on this very topic.   Apparently I am not the only one with things going over my head, but hey at least we are in the same boat.

If it interests you this problem no longer exists.  I have since removed "Hero/Heroine of China" from the character box.  It was under Occupation and Hero/heroine is not an occupation, it is an honorary title.  They are not employing her to save China on a daily basis.  She joined the army, saved China and became a hero/heroine and was rewarded.  That doesn't make it her occupation.  Hopefully we can at least agree on that one.

First of all nothing has gone over my head and if it has seemed like I have ignored a point it is because I cannot write an essay in the summary section but I apologize for my mistake. 

Secondly, you are just as fixated on it as I am sweetie, as you feel the need to contiue to edit this topic. 

Now lets move on to the other stuff shall we?

You seem to be ignorant to the fact that I also cited "a woman admired and emulated for her achievements and qualities" and "the central female figure in an event or period." 

Now, I am not denying that hero can apply to a woman, but in my experience on this world people always taught me hero is typically for a man and heroine is typically for a woman but the hero can be interchangable. I'm not denying that, I give you that one because it is true. In fact if my knowledge is correct I said that at least twice. But at the end of the day it is still English.  Heroine is a word in the English dictionary just like hero is.  Just because one is used more than the other doesn't make the other incorrect.  Heroine is still an appropriate term to describe what she is.  That's the point you are not getting. Did you get it that time? We can go over it again, I can even draw pictures if it will help.

If it interests you this problem no longer exists.  I have since removed "Hero/Heroine of China" from the character box.  It was under Occupation and Hero/heroine is not an occupation, it is an honorary title.  They are not employing her to save China on a daily basis.  She joined the army, saved China and became a hero/heroine and was rewarded.  That doesn't make it her occupation.  Hopefully we can at least agree on that one. 

So if you have anymore questions you know where to find me and I will gladly get back to you tomorrow.
