He insists a female Warden can't be a woman if she's also a warrior. It sounded pretty dogmatic to me.I interpreted that more as surprise that a woman was fighting, not that fighting makes you not a woman. That's how it sounded when he said this to Morrigan. And if it did, that directly contradicts the quote I used from Sten about accepting your lot in life. "The farmer is never a merchant, he is always a farmer become merchant."
