Baldur fails to see the potential in courting women that:

1) Lack strong backs… completely worthless rowing or in the field.

2) Have slender arms… can barely lift a sack of potatoes, much less a Viking broad sword.

3) Possess narrow hips… even if the upper half is well suited for child rearing, how many children can a narrow-hipped woman possibly produce?

Loki sees things a little differently, however.
